After a Professional Caulking Job Performed in Houston, TX, This Shower Was Free of Dirt
May 29, 2018
Have you ever imagined how dirty a bathroom can get if it is not properly and regularly maintained, or if it is neglected from the homeowner's cleaning routine? People may think that cleaning up every single day would be all the work necessary to keep the bathroom in a top-notch condition, but it does not work like that. If a surface is cleaned on a regular basis and the products and methods used are incorrect, it is very likely you would damage it over time, especially the shower where the expansion joints are very prone to harm. This would cause an owner to look for caulking experts in Houston, TX
to renovate them.
Ironically, the shower is in the top of the filthiest places in bathrooms. It is understandable that homeowners ignore paying too much attention in their cleanup sessions. The reality is different. People need to keep an eye on every single detail when maintaining the shower's surface. If not, there can be disgusting consequences:
- Mold on the curtain: One of the most obvious things that make your shower look gross is when the curtain is moldy. This happens when water is trapped in the curtain, making it a perfect spot for mold and mildew.
- Dirty glass doors: If you thought you were saved because you don't have a curtain but instead you have glass doors, you are wrong. In these cases, soap scum can create a cloudy appearance on the door, making it look ugly and unpleasant.
- Walls: These are one of the biggest problems because soap scum accumulates, leading to mold, mildew and bacteria growth.
- Soap scum: Using soap while taking a shower is pretty normal, but what people do not see is the layer it leaves on the walls and floor and even the curtain (or glass door).
Our next client was a Houston resident who unfortunately saw how his shower deteriorated over the years because of the lack of maintenance, but it was not his fault. His busy schedule didn't allow him to dedicate the time he would have wanted to keep his home as perfect as possible.
A couple of months prior, after a long day of work and after taking a shower, he noticed that the walls were gaining some black marks, especially in the expansion joints. However, he tried to solve this issue by cleaning up the surface over the next few days. Surprisingly for him, the outcome was not what he expected, so he decided to leave it just like it was.
As time went by, the homeowner realized the black marks of mold and mildew on the shower walls were not just worse, but the floor was in the same condition. He also noticed the caulk in the corners was breaking down. After what he saw, he couldn't explain how in a matter of weeks the surface was so deteriorated. He knew there was no time to waste to do something about it.
The man was worried about the condition of his shower's walls and floor, so he searched online for some DIY videos. After applying all of them to the surface, nothing changed. Even so, he kept trying to clean it for a few more days, but the results were the same over and over. He was not ready to give up on the shower yet, so he asked his son for some help to search online for companies that performed the best hard surface restoration. Sir Grout Houston's website attracted his attention for being in the top results and for the positive reviews it had. He decided to click on it. The man was amazed by the outcome achieved by our professionals and he was convinced we were the right company to restore his shower, so he immediately filled out the "Request a Quote" form in the website to set up a date for a free in-home consultation.
A Sir Grout Houston's team of experts arrived at the customer's house to evaluate the shower and established the most effective solution to fix the problem. When our technicians entered to the bathroom, they could see the dirt and grime accumulated on the shower and the mold stains were visible, so they asked about the cleaning routines the customer had been using. After heard about it, they knew why the surface was in the current condition. Our crew proposed a complete caulking service to renovate the look of the shower. The client accepted the offer and scheduled another date for the job.
Our specialists came back to the property to get the job done. To start the cleaning procedure, they protected all the surfaces around to avoid damaging them. Next, they applied a proper tile cleaner on the walls and floor, and after letting it soak for a few minutes, they used a high-speed but gentle scrubber to remove the soap scum and grime accumulated on the surface. They also used a steam cleaner to get rid of all the mold and mildew.
The shower was totally clean, so it was time for the caulking job. Our experts removed all the old caulk and replaced it using epoxy grout—a non-porous, mold-resistant substance that won't crack or peel over the long-term.
The work was finished, so the client was invited to see the outcome. He was thrilled by such a transformation. The mold and mildew were completely eliminated from the surface and looked brand-new. He couldn't believe what our technicians had achieved with a caulking service and mentioned that he would recommend the company to anyone needing hard surface restoration help.
Before our team left, they gave him a few maintenance tips to keep the shower totally clean. First, they suggested he always use pH-neutral soap-free cleaners during routines to avoid damaging the surface. Second, they also told him to dry using a towel or terry cloth to remove dirty water or cleaner residue. Last, they recommended he maintain the shower ventilated to avoid having mold and mildew problems in the future.
