Thanks to Our Grout Cleaning Specialists in Phoenixville, PA, This Shower is Cleaner Than Ever
July 15, 2018For parents, it is very common to have more space in their homes after the children grow up and go to college or do their own thing in life. In most cases, they move to another city. This was what happened to our next customers, a married couple living in Phoenixville, PA. After their son left, they didn't clean his shower very often and soon started to notice that something bad was happening to the surface. It was full of dirt and grime, and the mold was attacking the expansion joints and the caulking base. The best option they found to resolve the issue was hiring our grout cleaning technicians in Phoenixville, PA .
Since their son had left a year prior, they had neglected the maintenance of his bathroom, not knowing the results it would bring. A couple of months earlier, the young man announced he was going to stay in the house for his vacations, so they decided to get his bedroom and bathroom completely clean before he came.
After they finished the cleaning session on the bedroom, they continued with the bathroom and what they found out left them speechless—the shower was far from perfect. In fact, the tiles on the walls were colorless and the grout lines were full of dirt. What they found most disgusting was the black residue on the grout between the walls and the shower floor, specifically in the caulking base.
The homeowners were worried about seeing the bad condition of the surface. They were sure it was too late to restore it. They even believed they would need to spend a lot of money to completely rebuild the shower. The husband convinced his wife that they should look for an alternative solution.
They searched online for a solution, and after reading about the products and methods they could use to restore the shower by themselves, they decided to give it a try. They bought several cleaners and used them, applying different methods on the surface. To their surprise, nothing worked—the shower still looked grimy. They tried to totally clean the surface for a few more weeks and the outcome was the same after every session, so they realized that no matter what they did, they were not solving the problem at all. Instead, they noticed it was getting worse, so they decided to look for professional help as soon as possible to fix the shower before their son came to visit.
They went online to search for the best way to clean the shower without spending too much money. They searched for: 'the best hard surface restoration companies in Phoenixville, PA.' There were a lot of results, but in the top results, they clicked on the website that had several positive comments for their service—Sir Grout of Greater Chester County. Browsing through it, they read about the different services we offer and also verified the quality of our work by seeing different photos of results from similar cases achieved by our experienced cleaners. After this, the decision was made. They agreed that our company was the best choice they had to solve the problem, so they filled out the "Request a Quote" form on the website to set up a date for the free in-home evaluation.
A few days later, our team of professionals arrived at the customer's home ready to examine the shower and offer the concerned homeowners a solution. They were invited by the owners to the bathroom and when they saw the shower, they noticed the mold on it right away. Our experts asked the clients if they had been cleaning the surface on a regular basis. After hearing that they neglected the cleanup of the shower for a year, our team explained that the lack of maintenance was the main cause of the bad condition the tiles and grout had. Furthermore, they were using the incorrect cleaners and methods, so no matter how much they tried to solve the issue, the results would be the same. Our technicians offered a quick grout cleaning and sealing job to renovate the shower. The homeowners agreed and set another date for the restoration.
On the day of the job, our team went back to the property to begin the grout cleaning process. First, they applied a proper tile and grout cleaner on the entire shower, then they used a high-speed but gentle scrubber to eliminate the dirt and grime accumulated on it. To sanitize and remove the mold on the caulking base and on the hard-to-reach areas, they used a vapor steam cleaner.
Once the walls and floor were cleaned, it was time to move on to the next step of the process: sealing the grout lines. To do so, our specialists used our proprietary sealant—ColorSeal—and explained that this product sealed the grout, preventing future damages. It also recolors the grout, giving the customer the option to match the grout lines with the tiles. In this case, the homeowners chose a white color.
Restoring the shower totally changed the appearance of the entire bathroom and our team invited the clients to see the outcome. They were speechless about how clean the shower looked. It was better and cleaner than ever. They thanked our experts for the wonderful service and assured us they would tell everyone about the high-quality of our work.
Before our crew left, they gave them a few maintenance tips to keep the shower looking brand-new. First, they recommended never using soap-based or acidic cleaners in their cleaning session because they will damage the tiles and grout lines. Also, they mentioned always keeping the bathroom ventilated to avoid mold and mildew problems in the future.
