What a Makeover! This Shower Wall and Tub in Drexel Hill Now Look Outstanding Thanks to Our Tile Cleaning and Caulking Services
November 24, 2017We all know that keeping a house in a great condition is no easy task. Not all homeowners have the time to pay attention to every little detail, and that was the case with this young architect. She had graduated four years ago and started to work right away at a big company in Drexel Hill, PA. She didn't spend much time at home because her job required her to go out of town at least once a week. However, this resident didn't like letting her house get dirty, so she deeply cleaned every nook and cranny on the weekends. But for some reason, the bathroom wall and tub had started looking blemished, and the tiles and grout lines had gotten really dirty. Additionally, the caulk between the tub and the tiles had started chipping and were full of dirt. Later that week, she went out to a local store and bought the same cleaning products she always bought. The next morning, the woman began cleaning her beautiful house, but when she was about to clean her bathroom, it dawned on her that not even a deep cleaning session would fix the problem. She didn't even think it was worth the try. She knew she needed to find a company that not only provides superior tile cleaning services, but also exceptional caulking services.
The homeowner started searching for a company that could solve the issue. She remembered that a friend had told her about a tile cleaning company that had worked wonders on his kitchen floor. She called him right away. Her friend told her the company's name and how amazing the results were. Additionally, he said the company not only offers tile cleaning services, but also caulking services, which was exactly what she was looking for. The young woman immediately got on her computer and typed: Sir Grout of Greater Chester County. She found us among the top search results, which she thought was a good sign. On our website, she read some testimonials from satisfied clients and looked at some before and after pictures of our previous work. That was all it took. She was convinced that we were the right company for the job. She called us and scheduled a free, in-home consultation.
On the day of the examination, our team arrived on time. They were eager to see what the client was so worried about and offer her the best possible solution. The resident took us to see her bathroom, and our experts noticed the damage immediately. The grout lines on the wall were dirty and had started to blacken. The tub was stained with soap scum, and the caulk between the tub and the wall was breaking apart. The woman really wanted to know if her bathroom walls and tub could be fixed. She told our team that she had to travel once or twice a week because of her job, and she didn't have as much time to clean as she wanted. Our technicians explained to her that they had taken care of cases like these before, and homeowners frequently didn't have the time or the products to clean these kinds of surfaces. They told her that it was not her fault, adding that they had the perfect solution to her problem. The client agreed to their proposal. She just wanted her bathroom to look radiant again.
Our experts returned a few days later and were ready to start the cleaning process. The first step was to clean the dirty wall tiles and grout. To do this, our team applied a neutral cleaner with a high-speed scrubber. A vapor steam machine was needed to completely remove the grime from the tiles and grout lines. Then we applied our exclusive product, ColorSeal, which is a sealant that protects the grout, recolors it, and makes it durable.
Then it was time to start the caulking process. Our technicians explained to the woman that water and moisture often seep through caulk lines, and our caulking procedure would keep this from happening. The process consisted of applying an epoxy-based product that would seal the caulk lines between the wall and the tub, making the caulk lines resistant to mold, mildew, and chipping. This procedure will help preserve the caulk for many years.
The final step was to clean the bathtub. This was a special procedure because the tub had to be honed using a diamond disc to successfully get rid of all the soap scum. This method isn't typical, but traditional cleaning methods could be too abrasive for this client's tub. Besides, our technicians were very experienced and had mastered the technique. Our team was proud of what they did with this woman's bathroom.
When we were done, we showed the woman the incredible results. She couldn't believe her eyes. Her bathroom was radiant and spectacular. She told us that we had exceeded her expectations and thanked us several times. She said she wouldn't hesitate to recommend us.
Before leaving, our experts advised her to use soap gels instead of soap bars. Why? Soap bars contain talc, which can encourage the formation of chalky residues. Also, they recommended that she use dish soap to clean the tub.
