Our Grout Sealing Professionals Gave This Shower in Cypress the Most Amazing Makeover
May 14, 2022A homeowner in Cypress had the shower she'd always dreamed of, with a unique design of contrasting angles and colors. Because the shower was such a signature part of her house, the homeowner was particularly upset by the sight of it in the past couple of weeks. Mold and dirt seemed to gather all over the place, covering the tiles and seeping into the grout lines at an alarming rate. After trying the products and solutions she knew to no avail, the homeowner decided to find a reliable grout sealing service in Cypress, Texas.
While going over her options, the client recalled having heard of Sir Grout Houston before. She had seen the results of our restoration process on a relative's kitchen floor, so she went online to look further into our methods. The homeowner read as much as she could about our cleaning and sealing process, and the content in our picture gallery solidified her decision. After that, it didn't take much to convince her that Sir Grout Houston was the best choice and filled out the "Request a Quote" form on our website to schedule an in-home evaluation.
On the day of the inspection, our specialists were bright and early at the homeowner's doorstep. They checked the shower from top to bottom, looking for potential grout damage. Soap scum, mold, and mildew had stained most of the shower. This included all the grout lines on the floor and walls, which had remained unsealed for over two years. Our specialists explained that generic cleaners could trap the dirt on the surface, and unsealed grout can absorb water and soap scum without anything to stop it from cracking. After looking through each part of the shower area, our specialists determined that the best course of action was a thorough cleaning and sealing service. The grout lines on the shower floor had gone loose, so they also needed to be regrouted. The client was eager to have her old shower back and scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.
Our specialists came back a couple of days later and started cleaning the shower with a pH-neutral cleaner. Our high-class product removes all the embedded mold and soap scum until any leftover stickiness is gone, leaving shower surfaces smooth and spotless. It causes no gradual damage or discoloration, so it's entirely safe to scrub off the grout's dirt. Our techs removed the loose soil off the shower with a high-speed scrubber and the old grout in the parts of the floor that needed fixing. Then, they steam cleaned the walls and the floor to protect harder-to-reach areas where it's more likely to find mold and mildew.
To seal the grout, they applied a coat of ColorSeal on the grout lines. Our sealant keeps the grout stain-free for longer while blocking the way of liquids that could seep into its pores. As a result, it also makes cleaning and maintenance simpler for homeowners. As per the client's request, we went with a white color to bring out the shower's design, which had remained hidden behind the dirty grout for weeks.
Our specialists applied our resistant epoxy grout on the floor, providing more effective protection against water and other liquids. Other shower surfaces were soaked with a coat of Tile Armor to keep most sources of dirt off the tiles. The result is a time-effective cleaning routine that demands less physical effort from homeowners. We called the client back into the bathroom to see the results when everything was ready. She was amazed by the look of her shower. The tiles now look like they first did when they were freshly installed, and there was not a spec of dirt to be found on the grout. She was very grateful to have found the best restoration company for her shower and promised to recommend our services all over Cypress.
Our specialists left with a few additional pointers to help the client's cleaning routine. They recommended replacing soap-based formulas with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is enriched with high-quality ingredients that remove all traces of dirt without wearing down the grout or other hard surfaces. Homeowners can use it during their weekly cleaning sessions without having to worry about causing discoloration on the tiles or releasing toxic fumes into their homes. Make sure to use a clean towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to wipe off the soap scum from shower surfaces without scratching the tiles. Our specialists also recommended allowing fresh air circulation to prevent moisture buildup so that the shower can retain its appearance more effectively when they're kept dry.
