These Bathrooms Needed Our Professional Tile and Grout Cleaners in Downingtown, PA, to Recover Their Beautiful Look
May 18, 2018Most homeowners need to understand that using harsh and improper products and methods will sooner or later lead to damage. Some of them find it difficult to keep a regular cleaning schedule, especially in bathrooms, where they may not always be so eager to clean. Keeping a bathroom extremely clean, however, is very important. These are difficult to keep spotless, and using harsh cleaners only makes it worse.
Our next client, a Downingtown resident, realized the condition of her master and hall bathroom, but it was already too late to do anything about it, so she needed the help of our professional tile and grout cleaners in Downingtown, PA, to help restore them.
Despite the fact that this homeowner knew she didn't have the time to regularly clean her home due to her busy schedule, she normally tried to maintain some kind of routine. A couple of weeks earlier, she was in the middle of a cleaning session and noticed the lack of regular maintenance had completely changed the appearance of her master shower. The ceramic tile bathtub had accumulated soap scum, and mold and mildew were invading the grout lines. The expansion joints were cracking as well. In the hall bathroom, there was the same problem: soap scum in the shower floor, cracking grout, and mold and mildew starting to grow over the surface. The homeowner decided to do something about it.
She used every single product and method she found in magazines and DIY videos online, but there were no positive results in the master and hall bathrooms, so she decided to start looking for additional help. She asked her brother about the company he'd hired when he had a similar problem in his master shower. He mentioned Sir Grout of Greater Chester County right away and recommended our work for the incredible service and results provided. The owner trusted her brother's opinion, so she searched our website on her favorite search engine. She viewed some before and after pictures and read testimonials from satisfied customers, which convinced her we were the right company to restore her bathrooms. She placed a call and scheduled a free in-home consultation.
On the day of the evaluation, our tile and grout cleaners were ready to examine both bathrooms and offer the most effective solution. The experts immediately noticed the bad condition of the bathtub in the master bathroom. They noticed dirty and cracking grout lines, lifeless look of the ceramic tiles, and mold and mildew all over the surfaces, especially in the expansion joints.
After the examination of the master bathroom, our specialists evaluated the hall bathroom where they noticed the serious mold and soap scum problem the shower had. The ceramic tiles were pretty much in the same condition as the master bathroom: dull and full of dirt. Once the team finished the assessment on both bathrooms, they offered a deep tile and grout cleaning job, replacement of the old caulk, and sealing the areas with ColorSeal to fix the entire surface and restore the bathrooms to their original look. The customer agreed right away, eager to solve the issue as soon as possible. She set a date for the service.
A few days later, our team of experts came back to the client's home to get the job done on the bathrooms. They began the process in the master bathroom by applying a proper tile and grout cleaner to the floor, walls and bathtub. They let the product sit for several minutes to make the grime and dirt on the surface easier to remove. To completely remove the grime, our team used a high-speed scrubber and a vapor steam cleaner. The latter was important to eliminate any grime left on the grout lines.
The next step of the process was removing the old caulk and replacing it with new caulk, especially in the expansion joints of the bathtub.
Once the entire surface was cleaned, the final step was applying our proprietary sealant, ColorSeal, which is a product that protects the grout from water, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew, creating a shield around it. Our technicians explained that if ColorSeal is properly applied and the surface are properly maintained, it can last as long as the grout itself. One of its best attributes is that it comes in different colors for the clients to match the grout lines with the tiles.
Our team repeated the process in the hall bathroom, to eliminate all the soap scum accumulated on the shower floor, and ColorSealed the surface to prevent future damages.
After our crew finished the job, they invited the customer to see the bathrooms. The woman was amazed to see the stunning results. She never imagined our tile and grout cleaners would get both bathrooms so clean. She thanked our experts for their work and mentioned she would recommend our services to anyone experiencing similar problems.
Before our crew left, they gave the owner some care tips to follow to maintain the bathrooms looking beautiful. First, they suggested never using highly acidic cleaners in her cleaning routines due to the damage these products can cause. Instead, they recommended she use pH-neutral cleaners. They also recommended she stop using bar soaps to avoid staining the shower floors.
