A Caulking Service in Havertown, PA, Completely Removed the Mold from This Shower, Providing an Astonishing Restoration
July 22, 2019
A homeowner from Havertown, PA couldn't relax in her shower anymore. The joints around the tub looked awful and no matter how hard she tried, she couldn't improve the condition of the surface. She'd never had any trouble with maintenance before, but now it seemed impossible. Even so, the owner had the determination to solve the problem, so she looked for some DIY cleaning methods online.
She used many products and scrubbed for hours. Unfortunately, she was not successful. The joints remained dark and unappealing while the grout lines on the walls were full of dirt. Frustrated with the results, she considered hiring professionals. After talking with several friends, she only heard good things about Sir Grout of Greater Chester County, and decided to call us. The owner explained the issue and asked for a free in-home assessment. Thanks to our Havertown Caulking Services
, her shower was completely restored and now boasts a revamped look.
Following the owner's request, a Sir Grout of Greater Chester County expert team visited her house and inspected the damaged surface. She was expecting the visit and immediately showed them the shower. The problems were easy to spot for our professionals. The joints around the tub were full of grime and mold. Because of this, they looked damaged, dark, and unsightly. The grout lines on the walls suffered the same issue. The team told the owner that years of heavy daily use had caused that deterioration. Additionally, they found that it was necessary to seal the grout lines. This was important because the grout was exposed to all sorts of damaging agents present in the shower. They concluded that conventional cleaning wouldn't work because the damage was severe.
The solution the team offered was a caulking service. They told the owner that they would repair grout and replace the damaged caulk around the tub. Our technicians assured her it was possible to give her shower an enhanced appearance. The owner was happy to hear the problem had a solution, accepted our team's proposal, and agreed to set up a date for the job.
Our team returned to the client's house with everything they needed to perform the restoration. They began the process by cleaning the surface using Sir Grout's exclusive pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This is a top of the line cleaning solution that offers many benefits, including an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. It was necessary to remove all the dirt and grime in order to continue with the next step. With a high temperature steam cleaner, the team made sure the seams were free of mold and mildew. They followed this step by cleaning and repairing the grout lines.
Next, they needed to address the damaged joints around the tub. For this task, they replaced the old caulk with a resilient, high-quality product. This is the best option for bathtubs because it provides resistance to mold and mildew growth. When the technicians finished re-caulking the surface, they were ready for the sealing process. To finish the job, they sealed the grout lines with ColorSeal. This superior sealant keeps dirt, grime, and all other external agents at bay. It also reduces deterioration by preventing water and other liquids from seeping into the grout. Moreover, the owner can choose from a huge selection of colors and give the entire surface a beautiful new look.
The shower and the bathtub had received a complete overhaul thanks to our technicians' hard work. The team invited the owner to see the results for herself. She was awestruck when she saw the restoration they had achieved. She couldn't believe how gorgeous her bathtub looked. The client was pleased with the team's performance and thanked them, stating that Sir Grout of Greater Chester County had become her company of choice for hard surface restoration.
For Sir Grout of Greater Chester County it is important our clients know how to keep their restored surfaces in good condition. For this reason, the team took some time to give the owner some suggestions to make maintenance more effective. Daily use causes accumulation of dirt particles and other external agents on the surface. To prevent this issue, we recommend cleaning the shower weekly. For better results, use only pH-neutral, soap-based cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residue and won't cause damage. It also has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. We also recommend not using soap-based cleaners because they leave residue that seeps into the grout lines. This can damage the grout and promote mold and mildew growth. Also, it is best to avoid products that contain acidic properties. They are harsh and can deteriorate the tile and grout.
Mold and mildew are a constant threat in damp environments. To avoid health problems and illnesses, we recommend keeping the area well-ventilated and dry. This allows moisture to flow freely, minimizing fungi growth. After using the shower, leave the door ajar or a window open and dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth. Squeegeeing is the best way to keep the surface spotless.
