Our Grout Cleaning Service Rejuvenated a Shower Floor in Potomac, MD
April 23, 2018
One of the biggest dreams for almost everybody is to be a homeowner. There are few things more gratifying for a married couple than owning their own home. This was the case with our next clients, a young couple would be getting married in a few months. They planned to buy a house as soon as possible. They both lived in Washington DC and were looking for a house on sale nearby. Fortunately, they found a house for sale in Potomac, MD they really liked.
A few days later, the clients went to see the property. They took a tour of the house and saw the bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen, and even the patio. They loved what they saw, but the woman was not convinced about something: the shower needed deep cleaning because the grout lines were full of dirt and the expansion joints were crumbling. After the couple talked, the man convinced her they could solve the problem themselves, and if they couldn't, they would search for the best grout cleaning service in Potomac, MD
to restore the shower. They went through with the purchase and immediately moved into their new home.
The young couple was happy to have their own house, and after they moved in, it was time to deep clean not just the shower they were concerned about, but their entire home as well. Since they were new in town, both went out and asked people where they could buy the things needed to clean their home.
The couple didn't have time to waste. They needed to get their house in order before returning to their busy lives. They cleaned the living room first, then the kitchen. The next day, it was time to clean the bedroom and bathroom. Before cleaning the bathroom, the woman searched for tips online to help remove the dirt on the grout lines. She also looked for ways to fix the crumbled caulk. After the cleaning session was over, they were shocked to see no change in the shower: the grout lines were still dirty, and the caulk was still crumbling. They tried repeatedly for several more days, to no avail. They even searched more tips online, but nothing seemed to work. It was clear they needed to hire professional help to get the grout work back in shape.
Since the new homeowners didn't know anyone in Potomac, MD, they asked family and friends if anyone knew of a reliable company that provided high quality grout cleaning services. A friend of theirs suggested Sir Grout Washington DC Metro and he told them he had hired them to solve a problem he had on his kitchen floor a few months earlier. The friend even told them that our company covered the Potomac, MD, area and that they could check our reputation and work on our website. The couple, trusting their friend, typed on their favorite search engine: "best grout cleaning services in Potomac, MD." They noticed we were in the top results and the first thing they did was look at several photos on the "Before and After" section of our website, then they read a lot of testimonials from satisfied clients. The couple was convinced we were the perfect company to solve the problem in their shower, so the woman called and scheduled a free in-home evaluation.
On the day of the assessment, our team of professionals arrived at the house to diagnose the problem and offer the best solution possible. The woman invited our technicians to see the shower, where they immediately recognized the problems: grout lines full of dirt, mold, and mildew. In addition, the caulk in the expansion joints was falling down. The experts told her that maybe the previous owners were using harsh products and improper cleaning methods, which had left the shower in such poor condition. They also mentioned that a grout cleaning, re-caulking the expansion joints, and color sealing the shower would leave it looking brand-new. The clients scheduled a date to get the job done.
A few days later, our team of specialists returned to the house and prepared to perform the restoration. The first step was deep cleaning the surface by applying a non-toxic pH-neutral cleaner all over the shower, along with a high-speed but gentle scrubber to remove the dirt. They used a vapor steam cleaner for the hard-to-reach areas.
Once the surface was cleaned, it was time to re-caulk the expansion joints using our exclusive Stainmaster Epoxy Caulk to prevent water damage and mold growth.
The final step was to seal the shower. To do so, our team of professionals applied our proprietary ColorSeal, a water-based sealant that helps recolor grout lines while making it water, stain, mold, and mildew-resistant. The product also comes in a wide variety of colors. The woman chose the perfect color to match the tiles in her shower.
After the job was done, our team of professionals invited the woman to see the shower and she was amazed with the results achieved. The shower looked incredibly beautiful and brand-new. Since her boyfriend was not at home, the woman took several photos to show to him and her friends. Moreover, the homeowner mentioned she would recommend us to anyone who had similar issues.
Before our experts left, they gave the woman some recommendations on how to maintain her shower and keep its beautiful appearance. They recommended always applying a soap-free pH-neutral cleaner when cleaning the surface. They also recommended drying with a towel or terry cloth to remove water and any cleaner residue that might settle in the grout lines. Why? Because once the cleaner evaporates, dirt will stay in the grout. Finally, they told her not to use acid-based cleaners because these types of cleaners damage the sealant applied.
