Extreme Makeover! A Grout Cleaning Job in Houston, TX, Transformed This Shower
March 27, 2018For homeowners, maintaining their showers in perfect condition, free from mold and mildew, is not an easy task. Without regular maintenance, showers can drastically deteriorate. On the other hand, most homeowners use incorrect products and methods in their cleaning sessions, and as a consequence, showers are damaged drastically, making it hard for owners to restore them.
Our next customer, a mother who lives in Houston, TX, was about to receive her son for a few weeks. She wanted him to feel comfortable. He'd moved out from the house two years earlier when he found a job outside the city. His old room had been unoccupied since he'd moved, so she wanted to deep clean it before her son visited. Since the woman was a retired worker, she could dedicate the time she wanted to clean the entire room, including the bathroom. After cleaning the bedroom, it was time to clean the bathroom. As she began cleaning the bathroom, she realized how bad the tiles and grout lines on the shower were. The bathroom was not being used, and the lack of maintenance and poor cleaning habits had caused the shower to be full of mold and mildew. She believed with a deep cleaning session the problem would be solved. She was wrong. She was going to need to hire our grout cleaning service in Houston, TX.
The next day, the homeowner went out to a local store to buy several products for her cleaning routine. She intensively cleaned the entire bathroom, but before cleaning the shower, she searched a few tips online and applied them to the shower walls and floor. After the session, the homeowner wasn't satisfied, the shower still looked exactly the same: the tiles and grout lines were dirty and full of mold and mildew.
Before getting back to the cleaning routine, the owner searched and watched a couple of DIY videos and used them during the session. Still nothing changed. No matter what methods she tried, she couldn't bring the shower tiles and grout lines back to the uniform color they had when they were first installed. That's when she realized she needed professional help to restore her son's shower.
Since she had only a few days before her son arrived, she looked for help immediately. A neighbor heard about the issue the woman had with her bathroom and recommended a company that he'd hired to restore his kitchen floor: Sir Grout Houston. He promised she wouldn't regret it. He assured her the results would be amazing. The owner searched our website and found us in the top results. She read some of the testimonials from satisfied clients and viewed a variety of pictures from our previous jobs. She was convinced we were her best choice solving the problem, so she called to schedule an in-home evaluation, for free.
Our team of professionals went to the client's house on the day scheduled to assess the shower and offer a solution. The homeowner invited them to the bathroom, where they identified the problem right away. The experts asked how much time the bathroom had been in disuse. She told them one year. They explained that the stains were caused by soap scum and residue left behind from care products like shampoos or conditioners. Furthermore, it was clear the tiles and grout lines were dirty and full of mold and mildew. The customer asked if there was a possible solution. Our specialists told her a grout cleaning, caulking, and a sealing job would leave the shower like new. The woman set up a date to get the job done.
On the day of the job, our specialists returned to the house to begin the cleaning process. The first step was to apply a proper tile and grout cleaner on the walls and floor of the shower and let it soak for a couple of minutes to remove any debris or dirt. A gentle scrubber was used to completely eliminate the soap scum and grime. Our team then used a vapor steam cleaner to get rid of all the mold and mildew.
Once the shower was cleaned and dry, the next step was to replace the old caulk in the angle joints using epoxy grout. The final step was to seal the entire shower using our proprietary ColorSeal. The technicians explained that this product is a water-based sealant that helps both recolor grout lines and make them stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant.
After our experts were done, they showed the homeowner the brand-new shower. She was amazed. She said she never imagined a grout cleaning service would give the bathroom the incredible look it had. She thanked us for the wonderful job and promised to recommend our work to everyone who had a similar problem.
To maintain the shower's beauty, our team of experts gave the customer some recommendations. They suggested she always clean most surfaces using a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner to avoid staining the tiles. They also recommended she dry the shower with a terrycloth to avoid the chance of mold and mildew growth.
