Read How a Grout and Stone Cleaning Service in Wall, NJ Gave This Marble Shower an Extraordinary New Look
August 26, 2016These Central New Jersey residents moved into their current house just after getting married. When they bought the place, they made some changes to it, including a new marble shower and floor for the bathroom. At first, the final result was perfect in their eyes. However, they later noticed that the water in the shower always remained stagnant, and that they couldn't get it to drain properly. So, as time passed, their shower's marble floor started to stain and deteriorate, until it got to the point where it looked unrecognizable. The whole floor was suddenly very different from the one they originally had. Therefore, they decided to search the web for a grout cleaning company in Wall, NJ, that could solve the problem. That's how they got in contact with Sir Grout Central New Jersey and set up an appointment for a free quote.
When the day of the appointment came, Sir Grout Central New Jersey's technicians went to the customer's home. After inspecting the shower, they realized that the reason why the marble had suffered so much damage was because the shower drain had not been centered and it didn't have proper pitch, thus letting the water sit instead of going down the drain. The technicians told them that they could clean the stone, but that it would stain and deteriorate quickly again if they didn't solve this other problem first.
The homeowners asked them what could be done to solve the situation. The Sir Grout Central New Jersey hard surface specialists told them that the floor had to be removed to center the shower drain properly, but that they usually don't offer this service. Nevertheless, Sir Grout Central New Jersey's General Manager, Tom Cox, offered to perform the task himself, and, since he assured the homeowners he would do a good job, they accepted.
When the day of the job came, Mr. Cox, helped by the rest of the team, removed the floor and two courses of the wall. Then, they had a plumber center the drain and repair the underlayment. After this, the Sir Grout Central New Jersey crew reset the mud bed with proper pitch and set the tiles again. Subsequently, the technicians cleaned and sealed the shower's floor and walls to protect them from damage due to soap, shampoo, shower gels, or other products. This would help preserve the natural color of the stone.
After seeing their shower's rejuvenated marble floor and walls, the homeowners were deeply satisfied. They were astonished by their shower's transformation and kindly thanked Mr. Cox and the whole Sir Grout Central New Jersey team for the job. Also, they said they could not wait to use it.
Then, our team instructed the owners on how to maintain the clean and restored shower floor. They told them that daily maintenance would help keep the marble in good condition, especially if a few minutes were taken after showering to wipe the floor and walls with a rag or squeegee, since keeping the shower area dry would preserve it. Also, they emphasized that when cleaning was necessary, a pH-neutral cleaner should be used, as this will keep the marble clean and beautiful. Additionally, they recommended the homeowners to use a soft nylon bristle brush or a sponge for superficial stains and regular cleaning, and, if needed, a mold and mildew stain remover specially formulated for marble.
