Tile Shower Gets Restored Thanks to Our Clearwater Caulking Services
February 28, 2022
It's not easy to keep a shower in good condition. To prevent a shower from deteriorating, money and time are usually needed. A couple in Clearwater, FL, adored their home, but they were busy all the time and didn't clean their shower as much as they'd like to. However, one day, they felt they owed the shower a little bit of love.
The couple went to a nearby store and bought some cleaning supplies for the shower. When they returned home, they started cleaning the shower's surfaces, hoping to see results almost immediately. Cleaning the grout on the walls seemed impossible, but they kept trying. They also noticed the caulk was not in good shape and that the shower would require more attention. Concerned, they turned to the internet for help. Most websites recommended having the surface repaired by professionals in order to avoid major structural damage.
The pair agreed after a quick chat that they wished to avoid unnecessary expenses and began looking for professional Clearwater Caulking Services
. They found our website on the first page of search results. The homeowners called us to book a free in-home evaluation after watching some video testimonials from satisfied customers and checking out our before and after picture gallery
We arrived at the couple's home on the scheduled date to evaluate the shower. We saw the shower's grout and expansion joints were in bad shape as soon as we walked in. The caulk was beyond repair and the grout was badly discolored, as well as oxidized. Excess moisture and poor maintenance were most likely to blame for these issues. We asked the homeowners about their cleaning habits. They replied that despite attempting to clean the shower lately using store-bought products, they rarely had time to do this. We discovered that the majority of the products they used contained acidic characteristics. This showed why their efforts had failed to deliver positive outcomes.
We were asked by the couple whether we had a solution to the problem. We offered them our caulking services and a step-by-step procedure for restoring the shower's appearance. We'd start by cleaning the shower thoroughly. Then, to prevent water from leaking beneath the shower walls, we'd replace the broken caulk. We also offered to seal the shower's grout with ColorSeal, our own proprietary sealant. This method would not only restore the grout's appearance, but it would also protect it from hazardous external chemicals. The couple liked the offer and made an appointment for later in the week, confident in our abilities to restore the shower.
Ready to get the job done, we returned to the customer's home on the day of the job. We began by soaking the shower's surfaces in a pH-neutral cleaner that is grout safe and has enhanced properties that help inhibit mold and mildew growth. The enclosure and grout lines in the shower were then cleaned using a high-speed scrubber. We steam-cleaned the areas that were more difficult to clean, like corners.
We scraped off the damaged caulk and properly cleaned the areas before re-caulking the surfaces. Finally, we used ColorSeal to seal the grout lines in the shower walls. This is a sealant that encloses the grout's pores and protects it from water, soap, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew. ColorSeal is also available in a range of colors and makes cleaning surfaces much easier.
We showed the couple the results after we were finished. They were pretty happy with their shower's new look. They were also relieved to know that ColorSeal would make upkeep much easier. They expressed gratitude for our great work and said they would recommend Sir Grout Tampa to their friends.
Before we left, we provided the homeowners with some advice on how to maintain the shower's appearance. Our first recommendation was cleaning the shower once a week with a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Unlike other store-bought cleaners, this one is safe for both tile and grout and leaves no residue. We also recommended that the surface be kept as dry as possible. To do so, a dry cloth to wipe away any extra moisture can be used. This method helps prevent mold formation.
