Stunning Results for This Shower Achieved by Our Tile and Grout Cleaners Experts in Kennett Square, PA
October 07, 2017A single mother in Kennett Square, PA decided that something had to be done about her son's shower. He just turned 18 and had gone off to college in San Francisco. Since he was no longer living at home, his mother decided to do some improvements to his bedroom and bathroom, especially the latter. This shower was full of dirt and mold so she tried some DIY tips she found online. Ten years had passed since she bought the house and she had never considered hiring professionals to clean the tile and grout, thinking it was unnecessary.
One day, the homeowner sat on her computer and Googled for tile and grout cleaners in Kennett Square. She soon found Sir Grout of Greater Chester County in the top results. She was impressed with the positive comments from other clients and the pictures in the before and after section. Besides that, she went through a few testimonials from our latest customers and that was all she needed to be convinced to give us a call to set up a free, in-home consultation.
A few days later, our experts arrived at the property for the evaluation. We confirmed this shower was surely full of dirt and mold. The Kennett Square resident told us this shower never received proper maintenance over the years. Our team explained that showers create the perfect environment for mold, mildew, and soap-scum to grow. We told the customer this shower needed a deep tile and grout cleaning and a caulking service, due to the joints between the shower pan and shower walls were filled with mold. The grout was presumably never sealed and/or the wrong cleaning products were used to clean it. The single mother showed our team the cleaning products she used to clean the bathroom. Soap-based agents are not recommended for grout because they leave a sticky residue that trap dirt. Our experts kindly explained to the homeowner that such cleaners should be avoided and that a professional grout cleaning and caulking service would make her bathroom look as good as new; she accepted immediately.
Our tile and grout cleaners returned the following week to begin the cleaning process. The shower looked dull from all the mold and dirt on it. However, our experts started by applying our proprietary cleaner to the surface to clean the tile and grout with a high-speed scrubber. Also, we used vapor steam cleaning to remove mold and mildew. The steam cleaner works by lifting the layer of grime, while the scrubber removes it completely. To finish the job, we re-caulked the shower's edges. We explained to the customer that these areas are highly exposed to water, so when the caulk becomes damaged or cracked, water can leak inside and get under the tiles, potentially causing structural damage. Our experts applied Epoxy Grout to the grout lines and Epoxy Caulk to the expansion joints. This not only seals grout, but makes it mold, mildew, water and stain resistant, it's also a lot easier to clean and maintain. Epoxy Caulk is an exclusive Sir Grout of Greater Chester County proprietary product that is long lasting. It's worth mentioning that this top-notch product is extra tough and does not need any sealant. Once the job was finished, it was time to show our customer the results.
The single mother was stunned with the amazing results. She was speechless. The shower looked wonderful—as good as new. She immediately called her son to tell him about the stunning results thanks to our services; she sent pictures not only to him, but also to her friends. She was happy and we were proud of the job. She and her son were amazed; she told our team that she would recommend us without hesitation to friends, family and neighbors.
Before leaving, our team told the customer if she wanted to maintain the grout lines pristine, she would need to clean this shower with pH-neutral products and use liquid soaps instead of bar soaps to prevent soap scum buildup. Also, we recommended to never leave excess cleaner to air dry, because this can cause dust and dirt to accumulate. She should use a dry terry towel to remove excess or dirty water.
