Our Specialists Gave This Shower in Austin the Best Grout Sealing Service
October 04, 2022
A homeowner in North Austin found shower cleaning harder as time passed. Her master shower had an appealing layout combining different-shaped tiles and contrasting the colors on the walls and the floor. Unfortunately, this also meant that routine maintenance demanded more time and effort until the homeowner's efforts stopped being enough to keep stains off the grout lines. The solution to restoring such unique surfaces came from the best Austin grout sealing
It went like this: the homeowner spent weeks trying different cleaning techniques with the products and tools at her disposal. She knew she couldn't attempt a different approach on her own without potentially harming the shower surface. She suspected the sealant she'd applied had already disappeared from the grout by then. She went online looking for solutions and Sir Grout Austin was at the top of her search results. After admiring the photos on display in our picture gallery
, the homeowner filled out our website's "Request a Quote" form to ask for an in-home evaluation.
Our specialists didn't keep her waiting. They were at her doorstep only a couple of days later for the inspection. Inside the bathroom, they saw the stains on the shower right away, darkening the grout lines at the center of the floor and ruining the visual effect that the tiles were meant to create. They also confirmed the homeowner's suspicions about the unsealed grout, explaining that the grout lines had become vulnerable to mold and soap scum while soap-based cleaners trapped the dirt on the surface. The best course of action was to deep clean all shower surfaces with our professional equipment and sealed the grout after repairing the damaged caulk on the seams. Our specialists reviewed the restoration process with the client, and she scheduled a new appointment at the end of their assessment.
A few days later, our specialists returned to the client's home for the restoration. First, they cleaned all shower surfaces with a powerful pH-neutral cleaner. This high-quality formula makes removing stains ten times easier and more efficient. It leaves a surface spotless in only a few minutes, whereas traditional cleaners demand repeated scrubbing without getting rid of the stains. After working through each stain and steam cleaning the shower area, our techs moved on to the grout restoration.
They carefully removed the old caulk from the floor seams and regrouted the area with resistant epoxy grout. For the grout lines running along the walls and the floor, they started sealing with a coat of ColorSeal. Our flagship sealant inhibits the growth of mold and mildew while keeping the grout pores protected so no external elements can seep into its surface. It also improves the grout's appearance, as shown by the sleek grout lines that brought out the tiles' modern design.
Now that the shower had regained its gorgeous look, the client was ecstatic, admiring how the restored grout complimented the tiles. She thanked our specialists many times and promised to tell all her friends and family about Sir Grout Austin's incredible service.
As usual, our specialists shared additional cleaning pointers with the client during each restoration job. They started by recommending pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
to optimize her bathroom cleaning routine. Our product guarantees top-notch results on all shower surfaces, eliminating soap scum, mold, mildew, fungi, and other stains without wearing off the protection on the tiles and the grout. Regarding hard surfaces, neutral cleaners always deliver better results than acidic formulas and generic cleaning products. Next, our specialists listed the most appropriate tools to clean shower surfaces without scratching the tiles. The best option was to use a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to scrub off any stickiness or product residue. Lastly, our techs highlighted the importance of keeping a dry environment to prevent moisture buildup. For this, they recommended keeping appropriate indoor ventilation, with enough access to allow fresh air circulation.
