This Homeowner in Tampa Received a Very Much Needed Restoration Thanks to Our Tile and Grout Cleaners
October 31, 2022Keeping a shower looking good is hard. Time and continuous effort are typically needed to prevent a shower from deteriorating. Our next client left one of his showers unattended for a few weeks, but he thought this would be no big deal. That was until one day he saw the state of the tub shower.
The owner noticed the terrible condition of the tub shower and immediately recognized he needed to contact professionals because it required more than just a simple cleanup. Concerned, he sought assistance on the internet. Most websites advised getting the area repaired by specialists to avoid structural damage. After giving it some thought, the homeowner realized that he wanted to avoid unnecessary hassle, and so he started looking online for tile and grout cleaners in Tampa, Florida.
The homeowner came across our website on the first page of search results. He contacted us to book a free in-home consultation after watching several video testimonials from satisfied customers and browsing through our picture gallery.
On the day of the consultation, we went to the homeowner's home to assess the state of the tub shower. As soon as we came in, we noticed the walls' grout lines were in horrible shape. The grout had discolored and the caulk had deteriorated past its prime. The tub was very dirty and the caulking was severely deteriorated. These problems were most likely caused by excessive moisture and lack of maintenance.
After some explaining, we offered the homeowner our multi-step tile and grout cleaning procedure. We'd begin by carefully cleaning the tub shower. We'd then fix the damaged caulk to prevent water from leaking under the tub. We also offered to use ColorSeal, our own proprietary sealant, to seal the shower's grout lines. Not only would this restore the color of the grout, but it would also protect it from harmful exterior contaminants. The owner accepted our offer and a date for the job to take place was set.
On the day of the job, we returned to the customer's home, ready to perform the restoration. We started by soaking the shower's surfaces in a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner. Our cleaner is also super-concentrated, natural, soapless, and has unsurpassed protection. We cleaned the whole tub as well as the walls. The areas that were more difficult to clean were cleaned with a steam cleaner.
Our team removed existing moldy or failing caulk and cleaned the areas to be caulked. When the surface was dry, we applied new mold-resistant silicone caulk. After the shower was spotless, we used ColorSeal to seal the shower grout lines. This is an acrylic-based sealant that prevents water, soap, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew from penetrating the grout's pores. ColorSeal comes in a variety of colors and makes cleaning surfaces simple and it has built-in grout hardening agents that help prevent grout erosion.
When our team was finished, we showed the owner the results. He was surprised with the new look of his shower. He was especially relieved to learn that ColorSeal will make maintenance simple. He thanked us for our services and said he would recommend Sir Grout Tampa to his neighbors.
Before leaving, we provided the homeowner some advice on how to maintain the shower's appearance. Cleaning the shower once a week with a soap-free, pH-neutral solution like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner was our first recommendation. This cleaner is suitable for both tile and grout and leaves no residue, unlike other store-bought cleaners. We also suggested keeping the surface as dry as possible. To do so, the homeowner should wipe away any excess moisture using a dry cloth. This procedure helps to avoid water seepage and the excessive growth of mold.
