The Best Texas City Grout Sealing Crew Gives This Shower a Whole New Look
December 22, 2021
A Texas City resident was very distressed by the deterioration of his master shower. For one, there were stains all over the shower's surface that made it look dingy and unappealing. However, the homeowner's main concern was the number of cracks on his grout, which were a glaring safety hazard. While the homeowner tried some cleaning products on the stains, he knew that only a professional Texas City Grout Sealing
company could bring a real solution that could stand the test of time.
Tired of finding such a gloomy sight each time every day, the homeowner contacted Sir Grout Houston. He'd already heard of our services in the past, so it took him no time to find our website. After a quick look through our picture gallery
, he became even more convinced and gave us a call. Our specialists were at his house a few days later to conduct an evaluation of his shower.
They assessed the damage on the surface before identifying the best approach. The main problem was the damage on the grout and tiles. We could see cracks on the floor, walls, and near the shower joints, which could signal underlying structural damage. Some of the holes were big enough to be a cause of immediate concern, as they left room for a host of risks ranging from unstable wood studs to the spread of mold, fungi, and other harmful elements. There were also signs of discoloration on the tiles, and the stains were particularly prominent on the shower floor, right under the showerhead.
Our specialists were thorough while gauging the extent of the damage to see if there was a need to make major repairs. They explained the structural issues that come up when too much water makes its way behind the tiles. They told the client that the best course of action was a professional cleaning job, followed by repairs on the grout and tiles. Lastly, the shower needed sealing, as water had likely worn off the original sealant long ago. After describing our restoration methods, we let the client schedule a new appointment.
On the appointed date, we came back to the house with all the necessary equipment for the job. The first step was cleaning, so we applied a pH-neutral cleaner all over the shower's surface to loosen the soil and soap scum. Our surface-safe cleaner helps remove all sorts of shower fluids without requiring harsh scrubbing or creating a sticky film all over your surfaces. It also combines quality ingredients that act without releasing harmful chemicals into your living spaces. After a few minutes, we used a high-speed scrubber to remove all the dirt and steam cleaned the shower to sanitize the surfaces that are more prone to mold and moisture buildup.
Afterwards, our specialists began the repairs by removing the old caulk and fixing the broken areas. They made their way through the whole shower, mending the damage and making replacements when necessary. When it was time to seal the grout lines, our crew applied a coat of ColorSeal on the floor, walls, and corners. Sir Grout's flagship sealant wards off water, mold, mildew, and soap scum, preserving the grout pores and keeping the grout's surface free of stains. Because it's available in different colors, our sealant also makes the grout lines more aesthetically pleasant overall.
To complete the repairs, our crew installed our resistant epoxy grout on all the shower joints, adding to their structural stability to prevent the deterioration of the grout more effectively. For the rest of the shower surface, our specialists applied Tile Armor to help resist the effects of water and simplify the homeowner's cleaning routine. By then, the shower's transformation was complete. The tiles shined like never before and the newly-restored grout was the perfect addition to rekindle the shower's unique charm.
The client was delighted by the results, but a part of him was afraid that his regular maintenance methods might not be enough to prevent damage in a few years' time. We gave him some useful pointers to preserve our service's results in the long run. First of all, we ruled out all soap-based cleaners since they are of little help on bathroom surfaces, trapping soap scum and other fluids as they seep into the tiles and grout.
To clean shower surfaces effectively without risking discoloration, we recommended using our Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our pH-neutral cleaner preserves the sealant's protection while effectively cleaning mold, mildew, and other shower-related liquids. It's also safer for regular use since there are no chemical residues to worry about. In addition, we recommended using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to scrub all the dirt after it's loosened. Steel wools and other abrasive tools will only increase the chances of scrape marks on the tiles. A regular cleaning routine should be joined by a dry environment that counters the collection of moisture on corners and narrow areas, so we recommended keeping good ventilation.
