Our Techs Provided a Fantastic Grout Sealing Service to a Bathroom and Shower in Driftwood
August 23, 2022A homeowner in Driftwood was having a hard time cleaning her bathroom surfaces. The shower in her master bathroom had mold, and soap scum stuck all over its grout, especially on the floor. No matter what she did, the grout lines looked more unhygienic every day, making the rest of the shower surface look duller and darker. The homeowner wasn't sure how the problem started, but she became alarmed when the dirt wouldn't come out while cleaning the bathroom floor.
In both cases, the sealant had worn off the grout, and our client figured no cleaning method would solve the issue. She decided to find a hard surface restoration company in the area and came across the website of Sir Grout Austin online. She was very pleased by everything she saw, from the customer reviews to the results in our picture gallery. Not long after she started her search, the homeowner contacted our Driftwood grout sealing specialists to request an in-home evaluation.
Our specialists went to her apartment a few days later as scheduled. The dark grout lines on the bathroom floor immediately caught their attention, so they walked along the entire room before taking their inspection to the shower. As the homeowner had suspected, no sealant was left on any of the grout lines, leaving the grout unprotected against dirt, mold, and other fluids. Moreover, water had seeped behind the shower tiles, ultimately affecting the shower joints around the floor.
Our specialists explained to the client that bathroom surfaces are particularly vulnerable to wear and tear. The risks would only increase with the repeated use of traditional cleaners and chemicals. In short, these products only allow more dirt into the grout while prompting discoloration on the tiles. Our techs needed to clean and seal all the surfaces, but they also told the client that parts of the shower floor needed to be regrouted to preserve the shower's structural integrity. After explaining our restoration process to the client, she was happy to schedule a new appointment with our crew.
That same week, our techs returned to the apartment to work on the shower and the bathroom floor. They started cleaning all shower surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaner and painstakingly removed all the mold and soap scum from the grout and tiles. Our cleaner guarantees long-lasting results to keep a shower free of stains, all without using harsh ingredients that could cause discoloration on the tiles. Our specialists later used the same neutral cleaner on the bathroom floor and ran a high-speed scrubber over its surface to remove the accumulated dirt.
Before repairing the areas where the grout had cracked, our techs steam cleaned the whole shower area for good measure. They removed the old caulk from the seams and sealed the rest of the grout lines with ColorSeal. Our flagship sealant guarantees maximum protection to keep water, mold, mildew, and soap scum off the grout pores. It wards off all external elements while preserving the grout's look for years. The client had requested that the grout be the same color as the tiles, so our techs recolored all the grout lines to the same shade.
Then, they installed a resistant epoxy grout on the joints framing the floor to enhance the whole shower's stability while providing the best protection against wear and tear.
With the restoration complete, all bathroom surfaces looked terrific. When she saw the results for herself, the client marveled at how the grout's color matched the tiles perfectly. She was particularly delighted by the newly restored grout that made her shower floor look like never before.
Following their regular practice for every job, our specialists gave the client extra cleaning tips before the appointment ended. They recommended using pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner instead of soap-based products that could trap the dirt on the surface. Our product provides only the highest quality in its formula, removing dirt much more quickly and preserving the sealant's protection on the tiles and the grout. Another recommendation was to use a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to avoid scratching the surface while scrubbing off the dirt. They also reminded the client to help the room's ventilation by opening the windows and doors to prevent moisture buildup.
