Amazing Mold Removal during a Grout Sealing Service Gave a New Look to This Bathroom in Chester Springs
December 27, 2016Due to the humid environment in bathrooms, mold and mildew growth can become a common problem in these areas. Fungi will quickly grow in humid environments and become a homeowner's worst nightmare, especially when they stain the grout lines, giving your bathroom not only an unappealing look but also a pungent smell. This homeowner from Chester Springs was struggling with this unpleasant and unsightly problem in her bathroom, as you can see in the picture below.
She tried some DIY recipes she found on the web to remove the fungi, but she realized that it was best to put her bathroom in professional hands before things got worse. She searched online for a grout sealing service in Chester Springs and found Sir Grout of Greater Chester County among the top results. After reviewing the before and after pictures and client testimonials from other jobs we had done, she decided to give us a call.
When our team arrived at the homeowner's place, they first assessed the situation and took a couple of photos. The grout lines of the homeowner's shower were moldy and stained. Fungi can thrive in any moist environment and will reproduce quickly if the conditions allow it. When mold and mildew stick to grout lines and are not removed, they will stain them over time. Therefore, it is important to remove mold and mildew and to seal grout lines, as this will prevent further damage to your shower. They communicated their findings to the homeowner and explained what they would do to restore it.
To remove fungi from the shower's grout lines, our team first applied our proprietary cleaner to the surface and deep cleaned both tile and grout with a gentle, high-speed scrubber. They also used vapor steam cleaning to remove the mold and mildew in their entirety. Then, they sealed the grout lines with our exclusive ColorSeal. ColorSeal not only seals grout, but it also recolors it and – best of all – makes it mold-, mildew-, water-, and stain-resistant, which facilitates its cleaning and maintenance. After our team had finished the job, they took more pictures to compare them with the before photos. As you can see from the pictures, the results speak for themselves; the shower got a brand-new look. Now, it was time to show it to the homeowner.
When our team showed the shower to the homeowner, she was mesmerized. It looked better than ever. She was so satisfied with the excellent job done that she couldn't wait to tell everyone and show them the before and after pictures. She decided to post them on Instagram to help spread the word about our work.
Mold and mildew growth doesn't have to become your worst nightmare. Their growth can be inhibited by reducing moisture and lowering indoor temperatures. Furthermore, it's always a good idea to keep a squeegee in your bathroom to help keep it dry at all times. To clean your bathroom, it's best to use only pH-neutral products. Also, use liquid soaps instead of bar soaps to prevent soap scum buildup; not only will your tiles and grout appreciate it, but your skin will, too.
