The Master Shower in This Customer's Townhouse in Orange Park, FL Now Looks Impeccable Thanks to Our Team of Tile and Grout Cleaners
November 27, 2018A resident from Orange Park, FL was in the process of renovating his two-bedroom townhouse because he wanted to rent it for extra income. Unfortunately, the property's master shower was in bad shape as a result from years of exposure to dirt and soap scum. The tiles no longer looked clean and shiny, while the grout lines had become stained. He needed a cost-effective method to restore the shower, so he went online and searched for tile and grout cleaners in Orange Park, FL. The homeowner found our website within the top results. After browsing the picture gallery and watching some of the video testimonials from previously satisfied customers, he decided to call us for a free in-home evaluation.
As time passes, excess moisture, dirt, and soap residue can discolor tiles and grout, drastically changing the appearance of the shower. These and other external agents can be difficult to deal with if the surface has been exposed to them for long periods of time. For example, the longer soap scum builds up, the harder it is to remove. Proper maintenance along with a consistent cleaning routine is the best way to prevent these problems.
Upon arriving at the client's home, our trained team of tile and grout cleaners assessed the scope of the job to determine the best course of action. After they finished the inspection, our experts determined that even though the shower's surfaces were in dire need of a thorough cleaning, neither the tiles nor grout lines needed replacement. Mold had also begun to grow on the shower's joints. Our professionals offered the customer exactly what he needed, a well-performed tile and grout cleaning service followed by a sealing procedure. The homeowner agreed to the service and scheduled another appointment for later that week.
Mold growth on shower surfaces can be a result of improper sealing. Once present, mold can spread quickly, especially if the area contains high levels of moisture and little to no ventilation. Keeping surfaces well ventilated, properly sealed, and dry is the best way to keep them safe from mold, mildew, and other external agents.
A few days later our team of professional tile and grout cleaners went back to the client's townhouse to perform the services. They started the process by coating the shower's floor and walls with a pH-neutral cleaner. This product has been formulated to help decrease the growth of harmful microorganisms such as mold for an extended period of time after application. Next, they used a high-speed scrubber to remove the embedded dirt and soap scum from the tiles and the grout lines. To ensure the mold would not come back, they used a vapor steam cleaner on the shower's joints. They finished the job by applying our proprietary Tile Armor. This is an impregnating sealant that keeps tile and grout protected from moisture, soap residue, dirt, mold, and other external agents.
After they finished the job, our experts let the customer see the results. He was very happy with how the shower had turned out. The master shower in his townhouse was ready to be shown to potential renters.
Before they left, our experts gave the homeowner some care tips to keep the shower's tile and grout in great shape. First, they advised him to keep the shower ventilated. Excess moisture can be problematic for any bathroom. Always, wipe the excess water away with a dry cloth after using the shower. Second, they recommended cleaning the surfaces regularly with a pH-neutral, tile and grout-safe cleaner such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This will help keep the bathroom fresh and can help provide protection against bacteria. Finally, they suggested keeping an eye on the sealant every few months to ensure it is working. To do this, the homeowners should place a few drops of water on the grout. If it seeps in, then the grout must be resealed.
