A homeowner from Arlington, VA, was having a difficult time with the maintenance of her shower. The surface had received heavy deterioration, and despite her best effort, she hadn't been able to solve the problem. Her cleaning attempts provided no positive results. Frustrated with the negative outcome, she decided it was time to look for a professional hard surface restoration company. Thankfully, she found Sir Grout Washington DC Metro and we offered the assistance she required.

Shower Before and After Our Professional Caulking in Arlington, VA
While the owner was searching, one of her friends told her about us. He had hired us a few months earlier and loved the restoration we performed on his showers. Our loyal client highly recommended our Arlington Caulking Services, saying we were the best in town. Following his advice, she visited our website to learn about us. After thoroughly browsing our site, and reading the positive feedback we have received, she called us, explained the issue, and asked for a free assessment.

As the owner requested, we visited her house to provide the in-home consultation. She welcomed us and immediately showed us the affected shower. Once we entered, we noticed the problems. The shower had received constant use for years, and as a result, the grout lines had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue. There was also mold and mildew, and the caulking in the joints was badly damaged as well. Upon closer look, we learned the grout needed sealing. We explained this common mixture is porous, and when it's unsealed, it can easily absorb external agents. To prevent further deterioration, it's necessary to apply a special sealant.

The thorough evaluation had given us the insight to offer a solution. Since we had determined regular cleaning methods wouldn't be effective, this job would require Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We offered our caulking services to rectify the damages, revamp the surface, and give the shower a refreshed look. Before providing a quote, we proved the efficacy of our methods by testing our products on the surface. The remarkable results fully convinced the owner to hire us.

We returned a few days after the inspection to begin the shower's restoration. To achieve the best results, we followed a series of steps. We started by cleaning the surface using our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product is pH-neutral, doesn't leave a residue, and it's made with top-quality ingredients. It effectively loosens the soiling and our machine scrubs it out. After that, we addressed the mold and mildew affecting the shower. We steam-cleaned the area with enough heat to get rid of the mold and mildew. Once we finished cleaning, it was time for the grout repairs.

Regular cleaning is not effective against certain damages like stains or discoloration, and because of this, many homeowners have a difficult time trying to restore grout. Sir Grout Washington DC Metro, on the other hand, has the necessary tools and the expertise to easily fix any issue. We painstakingly worked on the entire surface, giving the grout lines a brand-new look. For the following step, we took care of the caulking.

Since the joints were in poor condition, it was necessary to replace the caulk. We used a resilient epoxy solution for this procedure, which offers many benefits. Unlike regular caulk or grout, this product isn't porous and has a durable composition. It's also ideal for showers because it's resistant to mold and mildew. To finish the job, we sealed the surface with ColorSeal.

Our top-of-the-line sealant provides long-lasting results and unmatched defense. It wards off dirt, grime, and reduces deterioration from daily use, making cleaning routines easy and fast. ColorSeal also improves the surface by giving the grout a uniform color and a revamped appearance. Our clients can choose from a wide range of colors, so they match the tiles with the grout. As expected, the job was successful, all the issues were gone, and the shower looked phenomenal.

After accomplishing our goal, we were ready to show the results to our client. The owner was beyond thrilled because everything looked perfect. After thanking us, she said our performance had surpassed all her expectations, and before we left, she assured us she would recommend Sir Grout Washington DC Metro to everyone.

Showers endure heavy wear and tear, and this can lead to deterioration and damage. For this reason, these surfaces require proper care. To keep these challenging areas in top condition, it's necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. We suggested setting a weekly cleaning routine to minimize degradation. Perform this chore using only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner.

Our product won't cause any damage and offers excellent results. It's also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners because they leave a residue that can seep into the grout lines. This contributes to decay and can cause several issues like stains or discoloration. It's best to avoid cleaning solutions with acidic properties as well. There are harsh components in these products that can be harmful to the surface.

Mold and mildew are dangerous, and before long, they can pose a health hazard for everyone in the house. To prevent this problem, it's necessary to keep the area well-lit, ventilated, and dry. Make sure to provide a source of fresh air by leaving the door ajar or window open, and after using the shower, dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly is also a great way to reduce the accumulation of dirt and grime.
