Professional Grout Sealing Service in Bethesda, MD Changed the Appearance of This Master Bathroom for the Better
January 30, 2020
Bathrooms are exposed to a constant flux of people and moisture, causing them to deteriorate over time. For this reason, homeowners must be really careful when it comes to maintaining their bathroom area. A resident from Bethesda, MD recently contacted us to have the fixtures in his master bathroom repaired. The wear and tear stemming from daily use began to show and gave every surface an awful appearance. As days passed, the homeowner tried several cleaning products he found at a local store, but despite his attempts, the surfaces got worse.
Concerned about the state of the fixtures in his bathroom, he went online to look for advice. He found that when a shower's fixtures are heavily damaged, it's best to replace them immediately to avoid severe water damage. The homeowner went back to the bathroom and inspected every surface. He noticed that most of the fixtures were moist and cracked. That's when he realized he needed the help of experts to avoid costly repairs. He went online once again and searched for Bethesda Grout Sealing
services. He found our website in the top search results. After watching some of the video testimonials left by previous customers, he called to schedule a free in-home consultation.
On the day of the evaluation, our experts went to the customer's home to assess the surface. During the inspection, our techs noticed the caulk on the bathtub's expansion joints and the grout lines on the floor were dirty and cracked. The fixtures on the walls were dirty and needed to be thoroughly cleaned. To fix these issues, our techs offered the client a grout cleaning and sealing procedure. To seal the grout, they would use our proprietary sealant ColorSeal. They would also replace the damaged caulk to prevent water seepage. The homeowner agreed to the service and scheduled another appointment for the job.
Later that week, our crew went back to the client's home to restore the shower. They began by soaking the bathroom's surfaces with a pH-neutral antimicrobial cleaner to loosen the embedded dirt. This cleaner also contains sanitizing properties that help keep surfaces free from harmful microorganisms for up to one week after it has been applied. After they let the cleaner sit for a few minutes, they gave the surfaces a thorough cleaning using a high-speed scrubber. They also used a steam cleaner on the spots where the grime had proved difficult to remove.
When they finished cleaning, our specialists began repairing the bathroom's fixtures. First, they replaced damaged caulk on the bathtub's expansion joints. Next, they re-grouted the areas of the bathroom where the grout had crumbled beyond repair. Luckily none of the tiles had come loose, meaning water hadn't seeped beneath the tiles. When they finished performing the necessary repairs, our experts applied ColorSeal to the bathroom's grout lines. ColorSeal is an acrylic-based sealant that protects grout against water, soap, stains, mold, and mildew. It also makes surfaces significantly easier to maintain. The customer chose white ColorSeal to give the bathroom a uniform color.
The customer was surprised when he saw the results. The bathroom's fixtures no longer had an unhygienic appearance. The homeowner thanked our team and said he was satisfied with the outcome. He also said he would recommend our services to anyone in need of hard surface restoration.
Before leaving, our team gave the customer some tips on how to keep the bathroom looking great. First, they recommended cleaning the shower at least once a week using a pH-neutral soap-free cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Not only is this cleaner safe for tile and grout, it also prolongs the lifespan of ColorSeal. Second, they suggested keeping an eye on the tiles, caulk, and grout to avoid unnecessary expenses. Finally, they advised him to keep the bathroom dry and properly ventilated to prevent water seepage and mold and mildew growth.
