An Outstanding Caulking Service Restored This Moldy Shower in Houston, TX
October 25, 2016
Everyone should have an impeccable shower. Not only is it more hygienic, but it can also help you relax after a hard day. Imagine coming back from work, feeling all stressed. You decide to take a shower and relax. Depending on your shower's condition, this action can have two outcomes. If your shower is pristine and looks like new, taking a shower would be more than a pleasure, and as if by magic, your problems would vanish. On the other hand, if your shower is not in optimum condition, it would be impossible to relax.
Some types of caulk have antimicrobial ingredients to prevent mold and mildew growth. However, the combination of moisture and residue from soaps and bath oils are a killer combination. If residue from soap builds up on the caulking, it can keep the antimicrobial ingredients from contacting the mildew spores. Moreover, deteriorated caulk can allow water to leak into the walls and under the tiles. Luckily, this homeowner knew she had to take action to prevent costly repairs due to water damage. She did not know what to do to fix her bathroom. DIY recipes were not an option since she just didn't have the time to try them.
The best she could come up with was searching the web for a Houston caulking services
. She found Sir Grout Houston on the first page of search results, and after browsing our website, she decided to schedule an appointment. She was determined to have her bathroom restored as soon as possible.
Our trained, professional caulking team inspected the homeowner's shower. They noticed that the shower had dirt buildup and mold. Also, the caulk had some cracks. Without hesitation, they decided to recaulk the shower.
First, they began to remove the dirt by using a pH-neutral cleaner and a scrubbing system along with vapor steam cleaning. They proceeded to remove the old and weathered caulk. Then, they sealed the joints with Stainmaster Epoxy Grout in white to match the bathroom tiles. Stainmaster grout is made from epoxy resins, which make it more durable and crack-resistant than regular grout. It is also resistant to stains, water, mold, and mildew, making cleaning easier. To finish the job, they applied ColorSeal to the grout lines. ColorSeal protects grout and also makes it mold-, mildew-, and water-resistant.
When they finished the job, they proceeded to show it to the homeowner. The homeowner was thrilled when she saw her shower. Her bathroom was impeccable again. She could not thank our team enough for the fantastic job that was done. As a special way to thank the team, she decided to post photos of the job to her Twitter and Instagram accounts so everyone could see the excellent job they did. Before the team left, they gave her recommendations on how to keep her shower looking as good as new.
Caulk is essential in any bathroom. The most important thing you can do to maintain your caulk is keep your bathroom clean and dry. Use a squeegee to remove most of the water after showering and prevent soap buildup by using liquid soap.
