A Caulking Job in Exton, PA, Was Enough for This Shower to look Beautiful Once Again
June 15, 2018
Mold and mildew can be found anywhere in the environment. They are both fungi and they all need moist areas to grow. Dark areas that have poor air quality, such as showers, are particularly vulnerable. Those fungi organisms will sooner or later damage the surfaces where they are growing, spreading seeds or spores, and as a consequence, these spores can be in the air for anyone to inhale or get on their skin. It is not always harmful, but mold and mildew may cause minor or serious symptoms in some people.
Breathing in mold and mildew can cause allergies, or in worst case scenarios, can contribute to the development of asthma. On the other hand, when mold is in contact with the skin, it could lead to a burning sensation in the eyes, nose, throat, or skin. Our next customer is an Exton resident in Pennsylvania, who was worried and didn't understand why the shower had gained the horrible appearance it had even with regular cleaning. Luckily, she found our caulking experts in Exton, PA,
to renovate the surface.
The homeowner had been living in the house for four years, along with her husband, and as any owner, she always wanted her home to look in perfect condition. She regularly bought cleaning products to maintain the shower, but later she discovered that she was not using the right cleaners on the surface.
Last year, to her surprise, she noticed that mold had begun to grow in the master shower. She found no explanation for it, since she tried to clean as regular as possible. She decided to do something about the black stains growing on the surface by using some products she had in the cleaning room, but after she finished, she was disappointed to see that nothing seemed to work.
In her desperation, she searched for several DIY methods on magazines to apply them on the surface, but she got the same outcome every single time. Once she realized that nothing was working, she understood that professional help was needed. She talked about it with her husband and they decided to look for a high-quality hard surface restoration company.
The next day, after she arrived home from her long day of work, she started the online search right away. She typed in her favorite search engine: 'best hard surface restoration company in Exton' and she was surprised to find us in the top results. Before hiring us, she read positive reviews and also checked out some photos from our previous jobs in the before and after
section. After what she saw on the website, she decided to give us a chance to restore her master shower. She filled out the "Request a Quote" form and set up a date for a free in-home evaluation.
On the day of the appointment, our professional experts went to the client's house to assess the surface and evaluate the best way to fix the problem. While examining the ceramic tile shower, the team could see all the dirt and grime accumulated on the walls, especially in the corners where the mold was visible. Additionally, they noticed the dull look of the floor, so they asked about her cleaning routine. After hearing about the products and methods she had been using, they understood why the surface was in that condition. Since our specialists knew how worried the homeowner was, they assured her they had the perfect solution for restoring the ceramic tile shower. The customer accepted the offer and scheduled another date for the job.
On the day of the restoration, our technicians returned to the house to fix the problem. They started the procedure by cleaning the entire shower. To do so, our team applied an appropriate cleaner on the surface and used a high-speed scrubber to remove the dirt and grime. They used vapor steam to completely eliminate any trace of the black stains on the walls, then they cleaned the glass door.
After the first stage of the process was completed, our experts proceeded to the next step and replaced the old caulk with new caulk. The final step was to seal the shower, so they applied our proprietary sealantóColorSeal. Our crew explained that this is a product that creates a shield on the grout lines, making them resistant to dirt, water, stains, and mold and mildew, and that it comes in different colors to choose and match with the tiles.
Once the job was done, our team let the homeowner see the outcome. She was astonished by how our work left her master shower as beautiful as it used to be. She thanked our technicians for the wonderful results and assured them that she would recommend our company without a doubt.
Before leaving, our professional cleaners wanted to give her some recommendations to keep the floor great. They suggested she use soap-free cleaners to prevent grime and dirt from accumulating on the surface. They also recommended she dry it as soon as possible and to keep the area well-ventilated.
