Amazing Transformation for This Ceramic Tile Shower After a Caulking Service in Havertown, PA
August 13, 2018Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's next challenge was a tough one. As most people know, once a surface has been accumulating dirt and grime for a long time, it is hard cleaning and restoring it to its original appearance. That happened to our next customer, a young woman who had lived in the same beautiful neighborhood as her father in Havertown, PA. The father was an elderly man that had been living alone since she moved out to her own house a few years earlier. Her father had recently had back surgery, so from then on, for obvious reasons, he didn't perform regular maintenance on his home. Instead, he hired cleaning services to keep the house as clean as possible.
The daughter used to visit her father once a week. Sometimes she helped him with the cleanup of the house. On one of those occasions, she was cleaning her old bedroom and bathroom when she realized the shower surface was in a really bad condition. The bathtub was full of soap scum, the tiles on the walls were grimy, the grout lines were moldy, and the caulk was falling apart. She never expected to see her old shower so deteriorated. She talked to her father about it and they both agreed that she would try to solve the problem by herself. He said that if her methods didn't work, they would need to get the best professional caulking services in Havertown, PA, to fix it.
She bought several different products at the store and began the cleaning sessions right away. She used acid-cleaners to remove the dirt from the tiles and change the appearance of the walls. Using the same products, she cleaned the bathtub. To her surprise, after the cleanup, the surface was exactly the same. Part of the grout lines still had some black stains because of the mold, and the walls and bathtub were as grimy as before. Since she never expected this outcome after a deep cleaning, she had no idea what else to do to fix the issue. The last thing she wanted was to wait until the surface got any worse than it already was, so she agreed to her father's request of looking for professional help.
The young woman asked everyone at her work if they knew an experienced company that performed not only tile cleaning services but caulking services as well. One of her friends told her that he had the perfect company, Sir Grout of Greater Chester County. He mentioned that if she wanted to know more information about our services, she could visit our website. Trusting her friend, she searched our page online and on it, she read everything about our tile, grout, and caulking services. Additionally, she saw some photos of our previous work and was convinced we were the company she was looking for to restore her old shower. She placed a call to schedule a free in-home consultation.
On the day of the assessment, our professional experts went to the house to examine the surface and establish what we would need to do to restore it. The woman invited the technicians to the bathroom, and when they saw the shower, they confirmed that it was in a bad a condition as the client mentioned on the phone call. Our team explained that there was nothing to worry about and assured that after a cleaning and caulking service, the shower would look like new. She accepted the offer and scheduled a date for the restoration job.
On the appointment day, our specialists went back to the customer's home to renovate the shower. They began the process by deep cleaning the tiles and grout using our proprietary cleaner and a high-speed but gentle scrubber to remove the dirt and grime from the surface and the soap scum from the bathtub. Sir Grout's cleaner now contains ingredients that can help inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms and surfaces, it can also stay clean for an extended period of time after it is applied. Next, they used a vapor steam machine to remove the mold and mildew.
The next step was to start the caulking process. Our team explained to the client that the main reason for this problem was that water and moisture seeped through caulk lines, damaging them. They told her that Sir Grout's caulking procedure would keep this from happening. The technicians removed the old grout and replaced it with new grout. They used an epoxy-based product to seal the caulk lines between the wall and the bathtub.
To finish the job, our team of professionals applied our exclusive sealant, ColorSeal. They explained that this product protects the grout lines, recolors them, and makes them durable. In addition, ColorSeal comes in different colors for the client to choose any shades they want.
Our technicians showed the results to the client. She was amazed to see the incredible transformation of the shower. It looked like brand-new. She was happy to see her old bathroom looking completely clean. The young woman mentioned that she would definitely recommend our company to anyone she knew.
Before leaving, our crew gave her some tips to maintain the shower. They advised her to use soap-free cleaning products to prevent grime buildup and mentioned that the best option she had was Sir Grout's cleaners. They also recommended keeping the bathroom well ventilated to prevent mold and mildew problems.
