See How a Grout Sealing Service Renovated the Look of this Gorgeous Marble Shower in Spring, TX
April 18, 2017
When you own a beautiful marble shower there are some things you need to keep in mind. The first is that such an elegant stone cannot truly shine unless it is accompanied by impeccable grout lines. The second is that to achieve the feat of keeping your grout clean without ruining your marble, you must be mindful of the type of cleaning product you are going to use because choosing an acidic detergent can spell disaster for both your grout and your marble, as this client came to find out.
A homeowner from Spring, TX had bought some inexpensive cleaning products and tried them on her marble shower, but the results were less than desirable. Yes, the grime was gone, but her grout looked damaged and grainy. Over time, she noticed this was only getting worse, so she decided to throw her products in the trash and look for a Spring grout sealing
service that could make her grout look good again.
While talking to a friend, our client happened to mention her problem with the shower floor. Her friend recommended calling the hard surface restoration experts at Sir Grout Houston, since she had had a similar problem a few months ago and they had managed to bring her bathroom back to life. She directed our client to Sir Grout Houston's website, telling her to call and make an appointment as soon as she could. Taking into account her friend's raving review, she signed up for a free in-home evaluation.
The day the technicians arrived to make all the necessary assessments, she told them all about the products she had used. Once they took a look at the state of the shower, they informed her that the grainy and damaged appearance was probably due to a combination of her cleaning products being too acidic, penetrating the sealant and eroding the grout. But she was relieved when they also told her the damage was not as severe, and that they would be able to reverse it with a grout cleaning and sealing service. Reassured, she agreed to the service.
After a few more days, the technicians went back to our client's residence to work on getting her shower back to looking beautiful again. First, our team applied our proprietary soap-less and pH balanced cleaner with a high-speed scrubber to rinse away the unwanted dirt. To remove the most resilient stains and grime they also used a steam cleaner. Once the cleaning process was done, our experts re-grouted the shower with our very own Stainmaster Epoxy Grout, which is a product known for its durability that aids in preventing water damage and seepage. The finishing touch was with using our Colorseal, a water-based sealant that enhances and evens grout color, and helps to protect tiles and grout against water and other damaging agents.
When the homeowner saw the final look of her shower, she sighed with immense relief. She thanked the team for being so diligent and helpful. She promised to use cleaning products of better quality and to seal her grout every 12 months to avoid water damage; because a good-looking marble shower with impeccable grout lines is the result of good care. She said she would try her best and, in case she needed professional help again, she had already saved Sir Grout Houston's contact to her phone.
