Our Jacksonville Grout Sealing Pros Gave This Homeowner the Shower Restoration She Deserved
February 15, 2023A homeowner from Jacksonville, FL, was used to taking considerable measures to make sure her shower looked its best at all times. The beige tiles added a nice touch to the shower, making it look sleek, even years after it was installed. The grout lines, on the other hand, had begun to collect enough dirt to detract from the shower's appearance. Despite the owner's best efforts to clean the shower, the impact continued. She gave up on DIY treatments and decided to take action with professional assistance.
She asked her uncle's help in finding a local grout sealing company, and he recommended Sir Grout of NE Florida. There had been no sealing job done since she moved in a few years ago and the client concluded that the grout in her shower had worn out at some point. She contacted us that very same day and we processed her request immediately.
A few days later, our Jacksonville Grout Sealing team arrived at her place to conduct an in-home evaluation. Our professionals determined that no conventional cleaning approach would solve the problem after inspecting the shower. Grime and soap scum were attached to the grout in several places, particularly around the corners, where the majority of the water accumulated. We highlighted that the acidic elements in both generic cleaners and homemade solutions made them dangerous for grout. Vinegar, soap-based solutions, and other similar chemicals wore down the surfaces over time, allowing water and grime into the grout pores. The client requested her shower grout to be sealed and the following appointment was scheduled.
Per the homeowner's request, we returned a few days later with all of the essential equipment to complete the restoration. Cleaning the shower walls and floor with our special cleaner and a high-speed scrubber was the first step. Our soap-free product effectively removes filth, mildew, and soap scum without harming the grout or tiles. We started by applying the product all over the shower's surfaces and letting it sit for a few minutes to loosen the soiling before cleaning it. After all the residue had been removed, we then used a steam cleaner to extensively clean the shower, especially the narrow areas that are more likely to accumulate filth.
Before applying our unique ColorSeal to the walls and floors, we used professional diamond saws to repair the places where the grout had been damaged. Our unique sealer provides the best protection for your grout, preventing it from absorbing dirt, water, and grime while maintaining its beautiful appearance during your everyday activities. After sealing the grout lines and cleaning away the residue, we were ready to show the client the results.
She was glad to see her grout again, now that it had returned to its original look. Each corner of the shower was clean, and knowing that the grout lines had been sealed gave the homeowner great comfort. We gave her some pointers on how to make cleaning more efficient and rewarding in the long run. We started by recommending pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to maintain the shower pristine without wearing down the grout and tiles.
Showers are constantly susceptible to daily wear and tear. If soap-based solutions are used to clean, the damage extends. Our soap-free product effectively removes dirt, grime, soap scum, and other exterior contaminants while leaving the surface looking good. To get a smoother process without scraping the tiles, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Furthermore, keeping the room well ventilated is a simple way to reduce mold and mildew buildup.
