This Shower Floor Regains Its Modern Charm Thanks To Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Satellite Beach
June 24, 2023Keeping a spotless shower is harder than it looks. Weekly cleaning sessions are not enough to counter the spread of soap scum while new stains continue to spread all over the grout and tiles. A homeowner in Satellite Beach contacted Sir Grout Space Coast when her cleaning products stopped being effective against the mold on her shower floor. Mold residue was only the beginning, however. At the same time, the wall tiles were discolored by thick layers of efflorescence, and the soiled grout lines started drawing the wrong kind of attention.
The homeowner didn't stop searching until she found the best tile and grout cleaners in Satellite Beach. Before finding out about Sir Grout Space Coast, she'd been looking for a restoration service nearby, but no one made a good impression from the options she found online. Our website's content was more thorough than anything she'd seen up until that point, and the results in our picture gallery left her wondering about the chances of getting a similar makeover for her master shower.
She called our specialists and asked some additional questions about our services and the estimated length of a house appointment. We went over our methods with her and offered to visit her house for an in-home evaluation after she explained the basics of her problem. Our crew was at her doorstep a couple of days later, ready to check her shower.
They were very thorough during the inspection, looking at all the grout lines and checking for structural damage around the seams. As they told the client, the mold got stuck on the grout after the sealant had worn off. The use of store-bought cleaners only helped spread soap scum around the sides because these products create a foamy layer that traps elements and liquids on the surface. The best course of action was a deep cleaning session, followed by the grout restoration after making some mild repairs on the floor joints. Our techs described the process to the client, and she gladly booked a new appointment with them.
Our techs returned to the client's home the following week, right on schedule. To start the restoration, they soaked all shower surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaner and carefully removed the loose dirt a couple of minutes later. This exclusive product is the ideal solution to eliminate common shower stains, no matter how old or large they are. In little time, it had helped detach most of the embedded grout, and the tiles were scrubbed clean with minimal effort.
Our techs repeated the process multiple times to ensure that no residue was left when it was time to work on the grout. For this part of the process, they removed the old caulk from around the horizontal seams and applied a resistant epoxy grout to reinforce the surface. They applied ColorSeal on the rest of the grout lines, recoloring them to match the floor's soft gray tones. Our acrylic-based sealant provides long-lasting protection against external elements and liquids, warding off water, soap residue, mold, mildew, and more. It also keeps the grout looking its best and reduces the number of stains accumulated on the grout lines, so your weekly cleaning runs much more smoothly.
Now, the grout perfectly matched the tiles' new shine. When they completed the final portion of the restoration, our specialists called the client back into the bathroom to see the results. The shower looked amazing now that the tiles had regained all their shine and vibrancy. The shower floor exuded elegance and style, largely thanks to the visual effect created by the tiles and the smooth grout lines. The client was delighted: she had high expectations, and our methods exceeded them all.
At the end of the appointment, our techs shared some additional cleaning tips to simplify surface maintenance. Shower floors and walls are constantly subjected to water, soap, cosmetic residue, and more. Unsurprisingly, these surfaces accumulate more dirt than other parts of the home in little time, which is why choosing the right tools makes such a difference in your cleaning results. Our specialists recommend using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to preserve the natural beauty of grout and tiles. The high concentrations of chemicals in traditional cleaners can damage hard surfaces in more ways than one, causing discoloration and leaving grout vulnerable to cracks. By contrast, our cleaner removes large stains without weakening the surface. It's highly effective against mold, mildew, soap scum, and other fluids, eliminating the need to use multiple cleaners and detergents to work on different stains.
When it comes to cleaning tools, our specialists told the client to keep up with her usual approach, using a towel or a squeegee to scrub off the dirt and avoiding abrasive tools that could scratch the tiles with just a bit of pressure. While it's impossible to keep a dry shower area all day long, there are ways to fight the effects of moisture buildup. Our specialists recommended opening the windows and doors a few hours a day to help indoor ventilation. The client thanked our specialists for their dedication and promised to tell more people in Satellite Beach about the quality of our restoration services.
