Our Southampton Stone Sealing Experts Successfully Restored This Marble Shower Giving the Surface a Brand-New Appearance
February 15, 2021
A homeowner was having problems with a marble surface in her house. Thankfully, Sir Grout's Southampton Stone Sealing
experts came to the rescue and saved the day once again. The owner was expecting a visit from her sister, but while cleaning the shower in the guest room, she noticed the marble floor looked dirty and unappealing. Despite her efforts in mopping and brushing, she saw no improvements. Determined to solve the problem, the owner used some DIY methods she found online. She followed the instructions, but unfortunately, nothing worked.
Since her guest was arriving soon, the owner decided to hire professionals. She called one of her friends and asked for advice. Fortunately, he was a loyal Sir Grout Bucks customer and immediately recommended our services, saying we were the best in town. Following his suggestion, she went online to learn more about us. After thoroughly browsing our website, she was convinced we could help. She filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free in-home consultation.
On the appointed date, we arrived to inspect the shower and to offer an effective solution for the problems. We immediately noticed the marble surface was in poor condition. The grout lines had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue, acquiring a dark, unsanitary appearance. The caulking in the seams was also damaged and the stone needed sealing. We explained that unsealed surfaces can easily absorb external agents. To prevent damages, it's necessary to apply a special sealant. After finishing the assessment, we concluded that regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide an effective restoration. This job required Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We proposed our stone sealing services to remove the damages and give the surface a strong protective shield. After hearing the offer, the owner hired us without hesitation.
A few days after the assessment, we returned to begin the job. For the first step of our top of the line stone sealing process, we cleaned the surface using our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our pH-neutral, stone-safe product doesn't leave a residue and it won't cause any damage to the tiles or grout. After effectively scrubbing out the soiling, we steam cleaned the area to remove any embedded dirt. Once we finished cleaning, we repaired the grout lines. To accomplish this task, we thoroughly worked on the entire surface using professional diamond saws until we fixed all the issues.
To continue the job, we needed to address the caulking. Since the seams had deteriorated, we replaced caulk with a more durable solution. Unlike regular caulk or grout, our product isn't porous and offers many benefits. It is ideal for showers because it prevents mold and mildew growth. For the final step of the restoration, we sealed the marble shower floor. For this step, we used Sir Grout's ColorSeal. This top-notch sealant provides long-lasting protection, warding off dirt, grime, and other external agents. It reduces deterioration from daily use to make cleaning routines easy and fast. ColorSeal greatly improves the surface by giving the grout a brand-new appearance. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owner to match the tiles with the grout. When we finished, the stone was completely restored and ready to endure heavy wear and tear.
Our client was beyond thrilled with the results of the stone sealing job. She was very happy because the process had been fast, efficient, and cost-effective. After thanking us, she said our performance surpassed all her expectations and assured us she would recommend Sir Grout Bucks to her friends, family, and neighbors.
Marble is a beautiful natural stone and provides an excellent choice for flooring. The surface is durable and it can last for a long time, but it requires proper care. For this reason, it's necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. We suggested setting a weekly cleaning routine. To perform this task efficiently, use only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product offers many benefits and it's made with top-quality ingredients. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products contain harsh agents that can harm the stone, producing stains or discoloration.
Mold and mildew in damp areas. Before long, these fungi can become a serious threat and pose a health hazard for everyone. Keeping the shower well-ventilated and dry is essential to prevent this problem. Make sure to provide a source of fresh air by leaving the door ajar or window open. After using the shower, dry the surface with a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly is also one of the best ways to minimize the accumulation of dirt and grime.
