See How a Grout Cleaning Service in Jacksonville Beach, FL, Helped This Master Shower to Look Brand New Again
March 22, 2018Everyone knows that bathrooms are hard to maintain in perfect condition due constant exposure to water and harsh cleaning products. This was the case with our next client when he called to hire our Jacksonville Beach grout cleaning services. He lives in Jacksonville Beach, FL, and has a busy life that doesn't allow him to dedicate time to cleaning his home as much as he'd like. The man had purchased his home five years earlier, and since he worked all week and, on some weekends, he only cleaned his house once in a while. During one of his cleaning sessions, he noticed the master shower floor looked different than when it was first installed. He noticed white powder on the tiles and grout lines, as well as mold, mildew, and a buildup of soap scum. Since the owner had a few days off from work, he decided to take care of the problem by deep cleaning.
When it was time to clean, the homeowner went to the local store to buy more cleaning products. He didn't have time to waste. The first thing he worked on was the master shower. He even searched for a few tips online to help with the shower. After deep cleaning the master shower, he was unsatisfied with the results. He tried several more cleanings over the next few days, with no change in the condition of the master shower. There was nothing else he could do to solve the issue. He resigned himself to spending a great deal of money changing the tiles in his master shower.
The homeowner asked his friends if anyone knew of a company to do the tile change job as soon as possible. One of his friends asked about the problem and the man proceeded to explain the issue to his friend. His friend later told him there was no need to spend money changing the tiles and suggested a company that could help with the problem: Sir Grout of NE Florida. She mentioned the wonderful job we'd done on her master shower. The man searched our website online and found us in the top results of the search engine. He saw several pictures of our previous work and read many wonderful testimonials from satisfied clients. He was convinced we were a company he could trust to clean his master shower, so he called to schedule an in-home evaluation, for free.
On the day scheduled, our team of experts arrived at the house of this concerned client to offer the best solution possible for his master shower. The man invited our technicians to the bathroom to see the problem. When they entered the bathroom, they noticed the white powder and soap scum on the shower floor. The team explained this usually happened when homeowners used the wrong products and cleaning methods to do the job. They also explained that efflorescence was there due to water getting under the tile, evaporating, and leaving mineral deposits. These stains were almost impossible to remove with regular cleaning products. The tiles of the master shower looked faded and dull due to layers of efflorescence and a lack of regular professional cleaning.
Our specialists came up with the perfect restoration plan. They would do a deep clean and use Colorseal on the grout lines. This proposal convinced the client and a date was set to start as soon as possible.
Our team of technicians returned to the client's house on the scheduled day. The first step was to remove the efflorescence covering the master shower floor. To do this, our team used gentle, soap-free cleaning solution to remove the embedded grime and soap scum. To deep clean, our team used a steam cleaner for the hard-to-reach spots. After our experts cleaned the master shower, the tiles were brighter and more colorful than they'd been in a long time.
Once the cleaning process was finished, it was time to use ColorSeal on all the grout lines to even out the color of the surface and seal the grout. The technicians explained that this product would prevent moisture from getting underneath the tiles and would give the grout lines a like-new appearance. Thanks to ColorSeal, the grout would also be resistant to water, stains, mold, and mildew.
The customer was stunned to see the amazing transformation of his master shower. He thanked us for our wonderful service and even stated our work exceeded his expectations. He mentioned that he wouldn't need to spend a lot of money on re-tiling the surface, and he said he would gladly recommend us to anyone with similar problems.
Before leaving, our technicians gave recommendations to the homeowner about maintaining the beauty of his master shower. They advised him to use pH-neutral cleaners from now on, as well as a once-a-week cleaning. They also recommended the shower be properly ventilated to prevent mold and mildew growth.
