A Shower in Malabar Regained All Its Beauty Thanks to Our Grout Sealing Crew
January 26, 2023Shower cleaning requires constant dedication, often taking the time we usually dedicate to multiple household chores. Sometimes, even that's not enough to keep the dirt from seeping into the grout and behind the tiles, and it all comes down to identifying the weak link in our cleaning routine. A homeowner in Malabar was going through this process before contacting our Malabar grout sealing crew.
For the first time in years, she could only watch the discoloration of her shower surfaces after a string of failed attempts to remove the stains. Significant marks darkened the tiles on the floor, and most grout lines had mold stuck at the top. Weeks passed, and regular cleaners brought no improvement, so the homeowner decided to get an informed opinion. She found Sir Grout Space Coast as soon as she started looking for a restoration company in the area and was immediately impressed by the results in our picture gallery. The homeowner gave us a call to ask about our services and scheduled an in-home evaluation with our techs.
Our crew went to her house a couple of days later. They started inspecting the shower right away to get to the source of the problem. Efflorescence is a common problem for shower maintenance, but the number of stains was still enough to ruin the shower's look. The mold had rapidly spread all over the grout lines, leaving large, black spots on portions of the grout. Our techs asked about the products used during routine maintenance, and the client listed multiple brands. Unfortunately, all these products had chemical ingredients that had likely added to the damage, trapping mold and liquids on top of the grout pores. The damage to the seams was minimal, so our specialists could make the necessary repairs in between a thorough cleaning and sealing service. They explained their desired approach to the client, and she gladly agreed to schedule a new appointment for the restoration.
Our techs returned to the client's house in Malabar on the appointed date. Once inside the shower area, they soaked the floor and all the walls with a pH-neutral cleaner. Our product permeated all the surfaces and gradually got the mold loose for our specialists to remove the stains. Thanks to a combination of powerful ingredients, our cleaning can remove deep stains without harsh scrubbing or additional cleaning formulas. It's the ideal solution to keep a clean shower at all hours of the day without having to dedicate more hours to chores. When all the stains were taken care of, the shower was steam cleaned to complete this process.
The following step involved repairing the old caulk and sealing the grout lines. Our specialists removed the loose portions of caulk and installed epoxy grout to enhance the protection around the seams. Then, they applied ColorSeal to all the grout lines. This top-notch sealant provides the most impressive makeover to revamp grout surfaces and protect against external elements. It wards off water, soap scum, mold, mildew, grime, oil, and more while increasing the grout's durability to resist wear and tear.
Our crew checked all shower surfaces at the restoration's end to ensure everything was ready before showing the results to the client. The transformation was impressive. The whole shower glowed, and the grout complimented the tiles' beauty. As expected, the client was satisfied and excited to show the results to her family.
With the restoration complete, our techs put away their equipment and shared additional cleaning pointers with the client. They recommended using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner over chemical-based cleaners to avoid subjecting the grout to gradual damage. Many of these products open the grout pores and eat at the sealant, leaving grout surfaces unprotected while water and other liquids seep into them. Our cleaner removes all these risks while providing more effectiveness when removing stains and marks. Its composition makes it safer for regular use because no toxic fumes are released.
Our techs also offered tips to counter moisture buildup. They instructed the client to occasionally open the windows and doors to help the room's ventilation, as shower areas are often out of the range of a home's ventilation system. Keeping the floors and walls dry between visits also helps preserve the shower from mold and mildew. When dealing with the elements that get stuck to the surfaces, our techs recommended using a towel, a squeegee, or other non-abrasive tool to avoid scratching the tiles. The client was grateful for our tech's advice and promised to recommend our services to the people she knew in the area.
