Every once in a while it is necessary to take a moment away from hectic routines to unwind, and that can be as simple as enjoying a hot shower. But there are times you can't. There are times you are trying to concentrate on the warm spray of water, but you catch a glimpse of the grimy grout lines beneath your bare feet and you tense up. You try to keep your zen in vain, and get out of the shower feeling icky instead of relaxed. This is unacceptable, you say to yourself while you get your rubber gloves on. You get some disinfectant, drop to your knees and scrub hard, but the grime remains intact. At this point it becomes clear that your mom did not bequeath her natural dirt-combating talents onto you, and most importantly, that you need a professional grout recoloring and re-caulking service to get your good old shower back.
A couple in Atlanta felt the same way about their shower—they wanted it back to its original state. It had a mold problem and the tiles were not looking great either. They had already tried all the best and most stringent DIY cleaning methods, but nothing worked for them. Tired and concerned, they searched Google, hoping to find a local professional hard surface restoration company that could solve their predicament. They soon found Sir Grout Atlanta's website among the first results, and after checking more than a few of our excellent reviews, they called us and made an appointment for a free evaluation.
Days later, our team of experts showed up at their doorstep ready to assess the problem and offer solutions. They observed the overgrowth of mold in the grout and the caulk, which was probably caused by water seeping into the grout and creating a moist environment for it to develop. The tiles were also stained and the DIY cleaner recipes had only worsened their condition. The technicians suggested a grout recoloring service and a re-caulking service, and the couple accepted.
On the scheduled day, our experts arrived and began to work. First, they deep cleaned the whole shower using our proprietary soap-less cleaner and a high-speed but gentle scrub. To reach the most difficult places and get rid of the mold, they used a steam cleaner. After this was done, the techs used our very own ColorSeal, a water-based sealant that evens out grout color and makes all grout lines stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant. At last, they applied our own Stainmaster Epoxy Caulk in all the right angles and expansion joints of the bathtub to seal them and prevent further water damage and mold growth.
What a difference it made! When our clients saw the results, they marveled at the sight of their old shower restored to its classic white beauty. They could not believe they were about to pay an extra $4,000 if they had chosen another company. This was the best investment they had made in a long time.
To keep the shower in pristine condition, our team of specialists gave the couple a few maintenance tips before leaving. The best option when cleaning is using a pH neutral, soap-less cleaner, since regular soap leaves a sticky residue that attracts grime and stains tiles in a very short period of time. Last but not least, always dry the shower and keep it ventilated to avoid all the troubles moisture brings to enclosed spaces, like mold or mildew growth. This is very important because the overgrowth of fungi can make indoor environments become hazardous for one's health.
