Our Exton Caulking Experts Revamped the Appearance of This Shower
December 03, 2019For our next client, a homeowner from Exton, cleaning her shower had become a difficult chore. She contacted us because she couldn't improve the appearance of the surface. Over the years, the shower had received heavy use. As a result, the grout lines and the caulking looked dirty and run-down. The owner had tried using some DIY methods she found online, but nothing worked. Her cleaning attempts provided no solution. Frustrated with the negative outcome, she decided to look for professional assistance.
As she was searching for a hard surface restoration company, one of her friends told her about Sir Grout of Greater Chester County. He was a former client, so he immediately recommended us, saying we were the best in the town. He advised her to contact us as soon as possible. She followed his suggestion and called us, asking for a free inspection. Thanks to our Exton Caulking Services, her shower has no issues and boasts a wonderful new look.
As per the in-home consultation request, we visited her house to inspect the condition of the shower. We noticed the grout lines had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue. Because of this, the entire surface looked dirty. The caulking also suffered this damage and had an unsightly appearance. As the evaluation continued, we learned the surface needed sealing. Unsealed grout can absorb all sorts of external agents because it's a porous mixture. This can lead to deterioration and more issues. Keeping the grout lines sealed is essential to prevent damages. When we finished the evaluation, we concluded that regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide an effective solution. This task required Sir Grout's top-notch restoration process and professional equipment. We proposed a caulking service to address the problems and enhance the surface with a brand-new look. The owner accepted the offer and hired us.
Following the appointment, we returned to restore the shower. We began the job by cleaning the surface using Sir Grout's exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaner is pH-neutral and doesn't contain any harsh agents. It offers many benefits, including an enhanced formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for an extended period of time after application. When the surface was spotless, we re-grouted the shower's walls. After restoring the grout, our team used a steam cleaner to remove any embedded dirt. We continued the job by addressing the damaged caulking in the seams.
To rectify this issue, we replaced the caulk with a long-lasting epoxy solution. The epoxy variation isn't porous and has a resilient composition. It's ideal for showers because it's resistant to mold and mildew. After re-caulking the seams, we sealed the grout lines with our top-notch sealant, ColorSeal. Our product wards off dirt, grime, and all other external agents. It also gives the grout an improved appearance and a vibrant new color. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owners to match the tiles with the grout. When we finished all the steps, the shower had been completely restored.
The owner loved the results of the job. The renewed appearance of the shower impressed her. She was very happy because the restoration had been fast and cost-effective. After thanking us, she assured us she would recommend Sir Grout of Greater Chester County to her friends, family, and neighbors.
Showers require proper maintenance. Heavy daily use and constant wear and tear leads to quick deterioration. To prevent damages and to keep the shower looking great, it is necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. We suggested setting up a regular cleaning routine. For this task, use only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product doesn't leave residues and it's made with high-quality ingredients. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house. It's best to avoid soap-based cleaners and substances with acidic properties. These products can cause damage because they are harsh and leave a residue that seeps into the grout lines. This can lead to issues like mold and mildew growth, producing negative effects on the surface. To reduce accumulation of dirt and grime, we recommended squeegeeing the surface after using the shower.
Mold and mildew thrive in damp areas. To prevent this problem, we recommended keeping the shower well-ventilated and dry. Allow the moisture to flow freely by leaving the door ajar or a window open and always dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag.
