Our Morrisville Caulking Services Made This Shower Look Better Than Ever
February 11, 2022A Morrisville resident started seeing how difficult it is to keep a shower clean almost a year after moving into his apartment. The shower's modest dimensions had made cleaning an easy feat in the past, so the homeowner was sure that the stains covering the grout lines had not resulted from a poor cleaning routine. The floors and the lower part of the walls had gathered enough efflorescence to make any time in the shower distinctly unpleasant. Moreover, water had seeped into the shower's surfaces, and the outcome had started to show on the seams and the floor's grout.
Knowing that it wasn't wise to let the problem go for long, the homeowner decided to look for the best Morrisville Caulking Services. He also knew about Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ from hearsay, including the quality of our restoration services. Naturally, he filled out the "Request a Quote" form as soon as he found our website. He requested an in-home evaluation, and our specialists were at his apartment a few days later.
Upon entering the bathroom and getting closer to the shower, our specialists immediately noticed the signs of deterioration on the grout. The discoloration on the grout lines was the first thing that caught their eye, but they also kept count on the areas where the grout had grown loose. After going over the client's cleaning routine (which included more than one soap-based product), they described the right way to undo the damage on the shower surfaces. They had to use specialized equipment to get rid of the soap scum and all the stickiness that had permeated the tiles. Also, all shower surfaces had to be sealed to avoid more damage but not before installing new caulking in areas where the grout had been damaged. The client thanked them for their explanation and scheduled a new appointment to have his shower cleaned and recaulked.
On the day of the appointment, our specialists began the restoration process by cleaning all shower surfaces. They used a pH-neutral cleaner to detach all the soap scum and grime and remove the residue with a high-speed scrubbing machine. Our product cleans dirt and liquids without creating a foaming film on your surfaces, removing all the drawbacks of generic, soap-based cleaners. Following this step, our crew steamed cleaned the shower thoroughly to prevent the growth of mold and mildew in hard-to-reach areas.
The next step was fixing the damage on the grout, so our specialists carefully removed the old caulk to seal all the grout lines. They applied a coat of our ColorSeal on the floor and walls until the grout looked spotless. Our sealant is the ideal solution to keep the grout clean for longer because it blocks out water, grime, soap scum, mold, and mildew and protects external elements from seeping into the grout pores. The client wished to have white grout on the walls to bring out the tiles' darker color while making the grout lines blend with the tiles on the floor.
Lastly, we installed our special epoxy grout on the shower floor joints. Since it's more resistant to water and other liquids, our epoxy grout can stay free of stains, simplifying regular maintenance on surfaces where dampness is a constant issue. When we invited the client back into the bathroom, every part of the shower was glowing.
The client thanked us and asked whether there were other steps he could follow while taking care of his shower. We told him that bleach and soap-based cleaners would only make the work harder for him, causing discoloration and making it easy for external elements to seep into the tiles and grout. With this in mind, we recommended using pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to clean all shower surfaces. This surface-safe product removes all the dirt without using harsh ingredients that could progressively damage the grout. This also means that no chemical fumes are released into the air each time you have to clean after spills, pools of water, and other stains.
In addition, we recommended using a terry cloth or a squeegee to scrub off the dirt since abrasive tools could leave scratch marks on the tiles and grout. Because showers are constantly subjected to the effects of moisture, allowing the circulation of fresh air will help keep the surfaces dry and stop the spread of mold and mildew. The client thanked us for our recommendations and promised to tell people about our services.
