Our Professional Caulking Services Restored This Porcelain Shower Floor in Manalapan
September 09, 2022It's challenging to keep a shower in good shape. Slowing down shower deterioration will often require lots of time and money. This homeowner discovered this the hard way. He had noticed a problem with his porcelain shower a few months before, but because of his busy lifestyle, he didn't have time to clean it. As time passed, the shower deteriorated one drop of water at a time.
One day, the homeowner decided to get rid of the problem, and so he stayed at home and performed what for him was a thorough cleaning routine, but the look of the shower barely improved. As a result, he recognized the shower would require more than just a simple clean-up. Concerned, he sought assistance on the internet. Most websites advised getting the floor restored by pros to avoid structural damage in the long run. After giving it some thought, the homeowner knew he needed to get special assistance, so he started looking for the best caulking services in Manalapan, New Jersey.
The homeowner came across Sir Grout Central New Jersey's website on the first page of search results. He called us to book a free in-home evaluation after watching several video testimonials from satisfied customers and browsing through our picture gallery.
On the day of the evaluation, we went to the owner's home to evaluate the shower. As soon as we came in, we noticed the floor's grout lines and expansion joints were horrible. The grout had dirt stuck in it, and the caulking was at its worst. These problems were most likely caused by excessive moisture and poor upkeep.
Worried, the owner asked whether we had a solution to the situation. We quickly offered him our step-by-step caulking services for restoring the state of the shower. We'd carefully clean the shower floor and fix the broken caulk, and regrout the surface to prevent water from leaking beneath the floor. The owner accepted our offer and scheduled an appointment for later in the week, putting his trust in our ability to restore his porcelain shower floor.
On the day of the job, we returned to the customer's home, ready to perform the restoration. We started by soaking the shower floor in a pH-neutral, tile, and grout-safe cleaner. This cleaner also includes cleaning qualities that help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. A high-speed scrubber cleaned the shower's tiles and grout lines. The portions that were more difficult to clean were cleaned with a steam cleaner.
After cleaning the shower floor, we scraped out the damaged caulk and replaced it with epoxy, along with regrouting some lines that needed it. Finally, we used ColorSeal to seal the shower floor. This acrylic-based sealant prevents water, soap, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew from penetrating the grout's pores. ColorSeal comes in a variety of colors and makes cleaning surfaces simple.
When we were finished, we showed the owner the results. He stood in awe with the improved look of his shower. He was significantly relieved to learn that ColorSeal will make maintenance simpler. He thanked us for our exceptional service and said he would recommend Sir Grout Central New Jersey to his neighbors.
Before leaving, we advised the homeowner on maintaining the shower floor's appearance. Cleaning the shower once a week with a pH-neutral solution like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner was our first recommendation. Our cleaner is suitable for tile and grout and leaves no residue, unlike other store-bought cleaners. We also suggested keeping the surface as dry as possible. To do so, you should wipe away any excess moisture using a dry cloth. This procedure helps to avoid water seepage and the growth of mold.
