Professional Grout Sealing Restored This Old and Dirty Shower in Chester Springs, PA
November 30, 2016
A white tile shower is a dream come true for many homeowners since it evokes purity and cleanliness and fills the room with energy and positivity. As with everything white, this type of tile is hard to maintain because dirt becomes especially noticeable. Before making a buying decision, people should always carefully take their environment and cleaning commitment into account. At first, this homeowner was very committed to cleaning his white tile shower, but as he submerged himself into work, he had little time left for cleaning. His once-beautiful and immaculate shower was now dirty and moldy, but it was nothing that a grout sealing service couldn't fix.
The homeowner was determined to find a solution for his now moldy and dirty shower. He remembered how his shower looked years ago, and he wanted it back without having to change the tile. He knew he needed a grout sealing service. While searching for Chester Springs grout sealing
services online, he found Sir Grout of Greater Chester County. He was delighted by the positive reviews, and he also looked at the before and after photos on our website and was thrilled. So, he filled out the form on our website to request a quote.
One thing that is true is that hard surfaces can deteriorate over time. Many factors can contribute to tile deterioration, such as heavy foot traffic, acidic cleaners, hard water, soap, mildew, and dirt, the last of which is white tiles' biggest enemy. As time passes, mold, mildew, and debris stain grout. Once grout is stained, it is almost impossible to restore it with store-bought cleaners.
Upon arriving at the customer's residence, our professional grout sealing team took some photos of the damaged shower and talked with the homeowner about the plan of action. The team started with a thorough cleaning of the tiles and glass door by performing a steam cleaning procedure and by using a pH-neutral cleaner. The combination of steam cleaning and pH-neutral cleaner can get rid of years of mold and mildew, making grout lines look better. Then, the team applied ColorSeal to recolor and seal the old, stained, and dry grout on the walls. ColorSeal is our proprietary tinted sealer that forms a water-resistant layer over the grout that will protect it from mold, mildew, and stains. It also gives grout a new, even color.
The shower floor had an improper skim coat of unsanded grout on top of the original grout, so our team scraped the top coat off, cleaned it, and then applied our proprietary Epoxy ColorSeal to the grout. Epoxy ColorSeal creates a uniform color and prevents invasive dirt buildup, protecting grout lines from damage.
The completed job utterly transformed the dirty and grimy white bathroom. Our customer was thrilled and could not believe how our team managed to make his bathroom look better than new. Our team was happy to see that the customer was pleased. We strive to satisfy all our clients, and when they are thrilled and happy, we feel the same way.
