Our Grout Cleaning Service in Jacksonville, FL Left This Moldy Shower Looking Like New
March 09, 2020Cleaning showers is a daunting task. Looking at all the discolored grout lines and grimy tiles can be discouraging to say the least. Like most people, you know regular maintenance has to be done, sometimes rutinary cleaning is just not enough. Unfortunately, this is very common because of the use of wrong methods and cleaners. When our customer received the visit of her sister she noticed the poor condition of the shower. That's when she suggested using some cleaning tricks she knew to help her clean the shower. After a while wiping and scrubbing, they realized that no matter which cleaning product or method they used, the state of the shower didn't change.
This story was the struggle of our latest customer, a Jacksonville resident who was extremely concerned about the state of her sister's shower. Since she had already tried every cleaning product and method that had been recommended to her, she asked her sister to search for a local hard surface restoration company to have them deal with the ever-growing grime on the shower floor. Shortly after searching online for grout cleaning experts in Jacksonville, FL, she found Sir Grout of NE Florida's website in the top search results. After watching some of the video testimonials and seeing many of our successful restorations in our Before and After picture gallery, she called to schedule a free assessment.
Our team of experts arrived the next day to inspect the shower. After they carefully examined the mold-ridden grout lines and grimy tiles, they offered the customer a tile and grout cleaning service followed by a grout sealing service using our flagship sealant ColorSeal. Our techs assured the homeowners these procedures would get rid of the mold once and for all. Trusting our crew's expertise, the clients agreed to the service.
Later that week, our specialists returned to the client's residence to perform the service. They began the cleaning process by applying Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to the shower's surfaces. This cleaner is pH-neutral, making it safe for both tile and grout. It also contains properties that help eradicate mold and inhibit its growth for an extended period of time after it has been applied. After removing most of the dirt from the shower's surfaces using a high-speed scrubber, our techs used a high-temp steam cleaner to solve the returning mold problem and to ensure it wouldn't grow back again.
Once they finished the cleaning process, our specialists applied ColorSeal to the grout lines. ColorSeal is an acrylic-based sealant that is specially designed for humid environments. Not only does this sealant restore the grout's color, it also protects it against water, stains, soap, mold, and mildew. To finish, our team re-caulked the shower's expansion joints to ensure they were in perfect condition.
When they finished, our crew showed the customers the results. Their eyes lit up the moment they saw the shower's surfaces. They had spent so much time trying to clean it without success. They thanked our team for the service and promised to call them again for maintenance.
Prior to leaving, our experts gave the sisters some maintenance tips to keep the shower in good condition. They suggested cleaning the bathroom once a week using a pH-neutral cleaning solution like our proprietary cleaner. In their desperation, the homeowners had used abrasive cleaners, soapy products, and even bleach. These products will do nothing but harm the shower's surfaces, so it's best to avoid them completely. Second, our team suggested keeping the shower enclosure ventilated. This helps avoid mold growth. It also helps to wipe excess moisture away from the shower's surfaces using a dry cloth, which goes a long way to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms.
