Our Grout Cleaning Experts in Potomac Gave This Badly Damaged Shower a Complete Overhaul
August 30, 2019
Purchasing a new house requires careful planning and preparation. For our next client, it was a big decision. She recently found a great property in Potomac. The house had all the features she was looking for and it was within her price range. However, there was a problem with the property. The master shower was in poor condition and the surface needed restoration.
Despite the issue, she decided to purchase the house, confident she could find a solution. After moving in, she tried to solve the problem with some DIY methods she found in a magazine. Unfortunately, nothing worked. She wanted her new house to be perfect, so she decided to hire professionals. She went online and searched for Potomac Grout Cleaning
service. In the top results, she found Sir Grout Washington DC Metro. Everything she saw on our website showed her we were the best hard surface restoration company in town. The owner filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free in-home consultation.
Our crew went to assess the condition of the shower. After greeting the owner, our team began the inspection. Our team immediately spotted the problems. The grout lines were full of dirt and had acquired a darkish tone. The caulking around the tub was damaged as well. It was harboring mold and mildew. Over the years, the shower received heavy wear and tear, leading to the deterioration of the surface. Our team also noticed the grout lines needed sealing. It was necessary to address this issue because grout is porous and can absorb dirt, grime, water, and all other external agents. When our experts finished the evaluation, they concluded the shower required Sir Grout's restoration methods and hard surface expertise. Our team offered a grout cleaning service to remove all the blemishes and revamp the shower. The owner was happy with the evaluation and accepted the offer.
As scheduled, Sir Grout Washington DC Metro's experts returned to perform the grout cleaning job. Our techs began the process by cleaning the surface. For this task, they used Sir Grout's top of the line cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaner is pH-neutral and offers many benefits, including an antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. Once the tiles were spotless, our pros repaired the grout lines using professional diamond saws. They thoroughly worked on the entire surface and restored the grout. When our team finished fixing the grout, they used a steam cleaner to remove the remaining mold and mildew. Our techs continued the job by addressing the damaged caulking around the tub. Our crew needed to replace the badly damaged caulk with a resilient epoxy solution.
The epoxy variation is ideal for showers because it's resistant to mold and mildew. Unlike regular caulking, it isn't porous and has a resilient composition. To finish the job, our team sealed the grout lines with Sir Grout's exclusive ColorSeal. Our superior sealant wards off dirt, grime, and all other external agents. It also gives the grout an improved appearance and a vibrant new color. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owners to match the tiles with the grout. When our technicians finished the restoration, the shower looked amazing.
When the owner saw the results, she was in awe. She couldn't believe how beautiful the shower looked. She could finally enjoy her new home. After thanking our team, she assured them she would recommend Sir Grout Washington DC Metro to her friends, family, and neighbors.
Tiled surfaces are prone to deterioration and require proper maintenance procedures. For this reason, our team gave the owner some suggestions for more effective cleaning routines. They recommended cleaning the shower regularly to minimize the accumulation of dirt and grime. For the best result possible, use only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residues and it has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. Soap-based cleaners can cause damage because they leave residues that seep into the grout lines.
This slowly degrades the grout and can lead to other issues like mold and mildew growth. Substances with acidic properties are also harmful and can produce negative effects on the surface.
Mold and mildew are a constant threat in damp areas like showers. To prevent this issue, it's necessary to keep the area well-ventilated and dry. To allow the moisture to flow freely, our team recommended leaving the door ajar or a window open. After using the shower, dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing is a great way to keep dirt particles at bay.
