These Hospital Showers Have Been Completely Renewed Thanks to Our Tile Cleaning Service in Woodbury, NJ
December 27, 2017
Public health facilities need quick and efficient maintenance procedures to avoid interruptions in their services. In addition, maintenance is key to guaranteeing healthy and safe conditions for patients. All cleaning procedures must be consistent and thorough, but that also has a disadvantage: frequent cleaning and harsh procedures inevitably deteriorate tiles, floors, and showers. That was the case with the showers in this hospital in Woodbury, NJ. Regular cleaning had caused product buildup which was difficult—or impossible—to clean up without a professional tile cleaning service.
The maintenance staff at this hospital noticed that their procedures would not be enough to clean the showers properly. That was when they started looking for the company that offered the best tile cleaning in Woodbury
, NJ. After an internet search, they found Sir Grout Central New Jersey, read a lot of favorable reviews from commercial facilities and homeowners. The staff went to our website, filled out the form to schedule a free consultation, and set a date for our team of experts to visit the hospital and assess the work to be done.
During the assessment, our experts noticed that the tiles had accumulated dirt. The grout was also discolored, mainly due to the use of industrial cleaners, which are acidic. The tiles were not the pristine white color they used to be. Instead, they were stained. To fix all these problems, the technicians decided that a tile cleaning procedure would give the tiles a new appearance. To complement the cleaning service, they also recommended our ColorSealing procedure, which changes the color of the grout and improves its resistance. After the assessment, everything was ready for our team to start.
The first step to restore these showers consisted of cleaning the tiles. Our technicians applied a cleaning solution to the tiles and grout, and let it soak. Then, they used a high-speed scrubber and a vapor steam cleaner. The scrubber stripped off all the superficial dirt, and the vapor steam cleaner loosened up the deep-seated grime while getting rid of mold and disinfecting the shower surfaces with the high temperature of the vapor. With the right combination of correct cleaning solutions and tools, the appearance of the grout changed immediately.
The showers were ready for the next procedure: ColorSealing. During this procedure, grout is recolored with our proprietary product, ColorSeal. This is a durable epoxy sealant that protects grout from water, stains, mold, and mildew. At the same time, ColorSeal renews the color of the grout, giving it an impeccable appearance. ColorSeal comes in a range of colors to choose from, which allows clients to match it to their tiles or décor. One of the most notable features of ColorSeal is that it facilitates cleaning since it gives grout an impervious, plastic-like finish. The caulk —the line between the shower walls and floor— also needed to be protected in order to keep moisture from accumulating and prevent the eventual deterioration of the floor and tiles. Therefore, our technicians also retouched the caulk with epoxy caulking. The advantages of epoxy caulking are the same as ColorSeal: the caulk becomes waterproof, stainproof, and resistant to mold and mildew.
The tile and grout in all 16 showers were sealed with our proprietary product, TileArmor, a sealant that makes tiles smoother, shinier, and slip-resistant. It also protects tiles from water, which ultimately keeps mold and mildew at bay.
All 16 showers that our team serviced were spotless after the procedure. The discolored grout and stained tiles were gone. The showers had regained their pristine white color and looked as if they had just been installed, which showed that a professional tile cleaning is often enough to restore the appearance of hard surfaces. The floors looked perfect as well. Sir Grout Central New Jersey's services not only enhanced the look of the showers, but also made them cleaner, which is extremely important at any health facility, as patients need to be in a sterile and hygienic environment. A big advantage of our procedures is that the maintenance staff's duties will be easier from now on.
We advised the maintenance staff to dilute acidic cleaners when they use them because soapy cleaning products cause buildup that attracts grime. Also, high concentrations of acidic substances eat away at grout and dull the sheen of the tiles. Another tip on how to keep the showers clean and minimize damage was to avoid moisture. All showers must be dried with a squeegee after they are used to protect their surfaces from mold and mildew. Now that the maintenance staff was armed with these care tips, these showers will be in perfect condition for a long time.
