Thanks to the Best Tile Cleaning Service in Atlanta, This Old Shower Now Has Revamped and Protected Surfaces
August 27, 2019
While preparing her house to list it for sale, a homeowner from Buckhead, GA noticed the shower needed maintenance. The tiles were badly stained and the grout lines looked unappealing. This was a problem for her because everything in the house had to be in top condition to attract more buyers. She needed to find a solution as soon as possible.
After searching online, she decided to try some DIY cleaning methods on the surface. She mopped and brushed as hard as she could, but nothing seemed to work. Her unsuccessful cleaning attempts led her to ask a friend for advice. Her friend recommended hiring professionals. He advised her to contact Sir Grout Atlanta because he'd heard we were the best hard surface restoration company in town. She followed his advice and called us. After explaining the situation, she asked for a free inspection. With our Atlanta Tile Cleaning
service, we successfully restored the shower and solved her problem.
We visited her house to perform the free consultation. After meeting the owner, we began the inspection. We immediately noticed the run-down appearance of the tiles. They looked dingy and stained. The grout lines had accumulated dirt, grime, and cleaner residue. Because of this, the grout had acquired an unsightly appearance. We told the owner that the harmful agents and the grout had become one. As a result, conventional cleaning methods wouldn't be effective. We continued the evaluation and learned the grout lines needed sealing. We explained that unsealed grout can absorb any external agent easily and it's vulnerable to degradation.
The results of the assessment showed us that the surface needed proper maintenance. We informed the owner it was necessary to use our professional restoration process. To fix the issues in the shower, we proposed a tile cleaning service. We assured the owner we would remove all the blemishes from the surface with this process. She was happy with the solution we offered and decided to hire us.
We returned on the appointed date to begin the tile cleaning job. We began by cleaning the surface using our exclusive pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Unlike regular cleaners, our product doesn't leave residues and it has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. For the following step, we addressed the stains on the shower's floor. Using a stain remover, we left the surface pristine. After that, we fixed all the issues in the grout lines and re-grouted the corners. We used our top of the line mixture to ensure long-lasting results. To finish the job, we continued with the sealing process.
To seal the grout lines, we used ColorSeal. Our product is a high-level sealant especially useful for damp areas like showers. It blocks the absorption of liquids and wards off damages from dirt and grime. It is resistant to mold and mildew as well. ColorSeal makes cleaning routines easy and fast by minimizing the need for excessive scrubbing. It also comes in a large selection of colors, allowing the owner to match the grout with the tiles and boost the appearance of the entire shower. When we finished, the shower looked brand-new.
We invited our client to see the results of the restoration. The owner was beyond thrilled because all the issues were gone. The shower looked amazing. She was happy because now the house was ready for sale. The owner was impressed by the excellent performance we displayed, and after thanking us, she said she would recommend Sir Grout Atlanta to her friends, family, and neighbors.
For Sir Grout, it's a priority to teach our clients how to take care of their surfaces. Before leaving, we gave the owner some suggestions for more effective maintenance. We recommended setting a weekly cleaning routine. For better results, use only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product won't cause any damage and it has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. Additionally, it is safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend soap-based cleaners because they leave residue that seeps into the grout lines. Products with acidic properties are also harmful because they are harsh and can discolor the grout and deteriorate the tiles. It is best to avoid these cleaning solutions.
It is important to keep the area dry and well ventilated. This will decrease the levels of moisture in the shower and help prevent fungi growth. Leave the door ajar or a window open, especially after hot showers. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing after every use is a great way to keep the shower spotless.
