Bathroom maintenance can be tricky, especially after moisture starts affecting the grout. From that point, even the cleanest walls and floors will give an unhygienic look. A homeowner in Alexandria had done her best to care for her bathroom surfaces for years. She was familiar with the chore of scrubbing stickiness off her shower and bathroom floor, which is why the growing stains on the grout immediately caught her attention. The homeowner first noticed the discoloration on her shower seams, and her routine cleaning revealed a similar issue all over her bathroom floor.

To her dismay, all the products and solutions she knew did little to solve the problem, and the grout continued looking duller despite her best efforts to conceal the stains. The homeowner went online looking for cleaning and maintenance tips, which led her to our website. After looking through the results in our picture gallery, she was sure that Sir Grout Washington DC Metro was her best bet to restore her bathroom's grout. So, she contacted our specialists via phone call to ask about our grout recoloring in Alexandria and to schedule an in-home evaluation.

On the scheduled date, our specialists went to the client's home to inspect her bathroom. Once there, they saw that the bathroom surfaces looked duller, despite the light colors of the tiles and the grout. Mold had deteriorated the shower joints, making the walls look in poor condition even before our specialists got to evaluate the stains up close. While the bathroom floor didn't create such an unappealing sight, the grout still looked neglected, and the tiles had no shine. Our techs explained that these were all common occurrences for unsealed grout, worsened by the exposure to chemical cleaners and soap-based formulas. Then, they described Sir Grout's restoration process, from our deep cleaning service to the repairs on the grout and shower joints. After asking a couple of questions about our products and equipment, the client scheduled a new appointment with our crew.

A few days later, our techs were back at her house, this time with all the necessary equipment to begin the restoration. To clean the bathroom floor and all shower surfaces, they applied a coat of pH-neutral cleaner. Our product works through the deepest stains, detaching the dirt without leaving the grout's surface more vulnerable to damage. Our techs did a quick job of scrubbing off all traces of mold, dirt, and soap scum before steam cleaning the shower for good measure.

For the next part of the process, they carefully removed the old caulk from the shower joints. The floor joints were the most affected, so our techs regrouted the area with resistant epoxy grout to enhance its protection against wear and tear. On the rest of the grout lines, our techs applied a coat of Sir Grout's exclusive ColorSeal. This powerful sealant protects the grout from liquids, dirt, mold, mildew, and a myriad of external elements. It simplifies cleaning while preserving the grout's beauty through time. The client had requested that the grout match the white shade that was kept along the shower walls and bathroom floor.

Lastly, our specialists sealed the shower walls and buffed the bathroom floor before inviting the client back into the room. After weeks of seeing her grout get progressively darker, the client was finally treated to the sight of spotless grout lines that worked beautifully with the shiny tiles. She remarked on how our restoration process made her bathroom look newer and livelier.

Near the end of the appointment, our specialists shared additional cleaning pointers with the client. They told her that pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner represent the best alternative to replace chemical and soap-based products. Our cleaner's formula has no harsh ingredients, so there's no risk of damage to the tiles or chemical fumes growing stagnant indoors. Our product cleans all the stains on tile and grout quickly and efficiently. Our second tip was to avoid using steel wools and other abrasive tools since they scratch the tiles more often than not. Instead, our specialists recommended using soft tools like a towel, a squeegee, a terry cloth, or a mop for the bathroom surfaces. To slow down the effects of wear and tear, our specialists told the client to keep all surfaces dry, wipe off any pools of water left in the shower, and open the windows to help the room's ventilation. The client thanked our specialists for their service and advice, promising to tell her friends and family about our services.
