Our Ewing Grout Cleaning Experts Regrout a Homeowner's Forgotten Shower
September 24, 2021One of the most time-consuming household chores is cleaning the shower. As a result, most people tend to overlook this task. Failure to properly maintain your shower, on the other hand, might lead to major issues. While most tile materials can withstand the wear and tear that daily showers can entail, the same cannot be said about grout. Because the grout lines between the tiles are porous, they can absorb water as well as other external agents like dirt and soap. This not only degrades the aesthetic of the grout lines, but it also jeopardizes the structural integrity of your surfaces.
An Ewing, NJ, resident didn't have enough time to properly clean the house's master shower. He went into the shower one day and tried to clean the grout, hoping it would look more hospitable. He tried many DIY methods and over-the-counter items, but none of them worked. Frustrated, the homeowner decided that seeking expert assistance was the best option. He searched online for Ewing Grout Cleaning and discovered Sir Grout Central New Jersey among the top results. When he read all of the wonderful comments we had consistently received, he decided to fill out the form at the bottom of this page to get a free evaluation and quote.
We came to the client's house on the arranged day to inspect the shower. After introducing ourselves to the homeowner, we were ready to start the procedure. At first inspection, we identified the issues. The base was filthy, and the grout lines were clogged. Mold and mildew had infested the caulk on the shower's joints. These issues were created not just by a lack of regular maintenance, but also by the shower enclosure's lack of ventilation, which allowed mold and mildew to grow.
We discussed the dangers of leaving the shower in such a state. We informed the homeowner that long-term exposure to mold spores can be harmful to one's health. Furthermore, worn-out fixtures may cause structural damage. Concerned about the condition of the shower's surfaces, the client asked if there was anything we could do to make shower maintenance easier for him.
We advised him that the best approach to keep the shower in good working order was to take preventative steps. In this case, we offered a grout cleaning service and a multi-stage sealing process, using our own products. He agreed to our offer since he was relieved to hear we could solve the problem.
We returned to the customer's home a few days later to complete the service. To remove the filth from the tiles and grout lines, we used our tile and grout cleaner in conjunction with a high-speed scrubber to clean the shower's base and walls. To verify that the mold and mildew were thoroughly eradicated, we utilized a steam cleaner on the shower's joints. The damaged caulk was scraped away and replaced with our own brand of epoxy grout. This type of grout is made to resist high humidity levels.
Before applying our flagship sealants, we regrouted the shower. We then used ColorSeal to seal the grout lines on the walls and epoxy ColorSeal for the base after completely sealing the wall joints. The acrylic-based sealant seals the pores of the grout, preventing it from absorbing harmful exterior contaminants while the epoxy-based sealant is designed specifically for surfaces that come into touch with water on a regular basis.
The shower was spotless after we were done. The dingy fixtures were gone, and the expansion joints were mold and mildew-free. We asked the owner to see the results, and he was speechless when he did. After thanking us, he said he would tell his friends and family about Sir Grout Central New Jersey.
While ColorSeal and its variations are designed to last as long as the grout, adequate maintenance of the shower is still required to achieve long-term effects. As a result, before leaving his home, we gave the client some advice. To begin, we advise avoiding DIY cleaning methods and store-bought products. These cleaners frequently include harmful chemicals that can exacerbate the deterioration of tile and grout. We recommended that the customer clean the shower once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to keep it looking excellent. Finally, to avoid mold formation, we recommend cleaning away excess water with a dry cloth after each shower.
