It's not uncommon for shower surfaces to become stained seemingly out of nowhere. There are too many elements wearing off the grout's sealant, and the constant humidity makes mold appear much faster. A couple in Bethesda had been trying multiple solutions to get the mold and soap scum off their shower. They used all the products they could find, but the grout kept collecting dirt, and stains covered the tiles closest to the floor. As the dirt became more noticeable, all the time spent inside the shower turned into a chore, and the couple feared that water was making its way under the tiles.

Ceramic Shower Before and After a Restoration Service from Our Bethesda Tile and Grout Cleaners
Hoping to fix the problem before the stains spread to the rest of the shower, the couple agreed that the best option was to hire a professional cleaning service. They went online looking for a solution and found the best Bethesda Tile and Grout Cleaners. Soon after finding our website, they were both delighted by the results displayed in our picture gallery and decided to request an in-home evaluation via our "Request a Quote" form.

Our specialists were quick to respond, and they were at the couple's home a few days later. They immediately saw the stains all over the ceramic shower and confirmed that the grout's sealant had worn off. As a result, the grout had absorbed a lot of water, and most of its surface was covered in soap scum. After going over the clients' cleaning routine, our specialists explained that many of the cleaners used on the shower bring more harm than good. These products create a foamy film that allows the absorption of liquids and the appearance of stains on the grout. Luckily, our equipment could remove all the dirt, and our specialists could reseal the grout to stop the problem from repeating itself. The clients were relieved by this assessment and decided to schedule a new appointment for the restoration.

A few days later, our crew came back to start working on the clients' shower. First, they cleaned all shower surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaner, from the walls to the floor, corners, and the shower seat. Our product simplifies the process of removing the dirt after letting it sit for a few minutes, and it's the best way to keep tiles and grout clean without causing gradual damage. We removed the loose mold and soap scum with a high-speed scrubber and steam cleaned the whole shower to ensure thorough results, with no speck of dirt left on harder-to-reach areas.

The next step was sealing all the grout lines with Sir Grout's signature ColorSeal. Our sealant is the best way to block water, mold, mildew, grime, and soap scum, protecting the grout pores and reducing the instances of stains. Now that the shower was clean, we recolored the grout to match the beige and light brown shades on the tiles. To prevent water from seeping into the grout and getting under the floor tiles, we regrouted the shower joints with epoxy grout, which made them more resistant to withstand water and other liquids.

After applying TileArmor as the last layer of protection for the shower's ceramic surface, we called the clients back to see the results. They were both thrilled by the shower's beauty and thanked our specialists for their guidance and the quality of their services.

After a job well done, our specialists ended the appointment with some cleaning tips for the homeowners. They recommended cleaning the shower and other hard surfaces with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Most traditional cleaners have pH imbalances that make their formulas ineffective, causing discoloration, trapping the dirt between tiles, and adding to the deterioration of the grout. Without mixing harsh ingredients into its formula, our product removes dirt, soap scum, mold, and mildew while preserving the sealant on the grout. Moreover, our cleaner removes the health risks caused by chemical fumes, so homeowners can seamlessly make it part of a household's cleaning routine. Our crew also recommended using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to scrub off the tiles without leaving scratches and keeping the shower dry with proper ventilation.
