Our Tile and Grout Cleaners Make a Shower in Tempe Look Its Best
May 18, 2022Few things are more uncomfortable than a dirty shower. Water and soap scum can do a number on shower surfaces, to the point that traditional cleaners can do little to remove the stains. This was the case for a homeowner in Tempe who had tried to scrub the mold off his shower for months to no avail. Most of the grout was dirty, and the shower joints looked less sturdy than they had just weeks before. The white shower floor also had many stains, so the shower felt unhygienic no matter where you looked.
With his shower looking worse by the day, the homeowner decided to leave the work in professional hands. He also feared wearing down the tiles with all the hard scrubbing he was doing every few days. He went online looking for Tile and Grout Cleaners in Tempe and Sir Grout Phoenix immediately stood out to him among all the companies he found in the area. He read through the information available on our website and filled out the "Request a Quote" form to ask for an in-home evaluation.
On the scheduled date, our specialists went to the client's apartment to look at his shower. As the client had described before letting them into the bathroom, most of the wall's grout was covered in mold, all the way down to the horizontal shower joints. It also became apparent that parts of the shower needed repairing, even with the stains covering most of the damage. Our specialists explained how traditional cleaning formulas could worsen these stains by trapping the dirt on the surfaces and gave the client a rundown of their restoration process. In short, they would use professional equipment to clean all shower surfaces, remove the loose grout, and seal all the grout lines to keep the pores from absorbing water and other liquids. The client agreed with this approach and scheduled a new appointment with our crew.
So, a few days after the inspection, our techs came back to work on the shower. They started the process by using a pH-neutral formula to clean all shower surfaces from top to bottom. Our cleaner loosens all the dirt that's attached to hard surfaces and leaves the walls and floors spotless in a matter of minutes. To remove the residue, our techs ran a high-speed scrubber all over the shower until they took care of all the stains. Then, they steam cleaned the shower area before moving to the next step.
When there was no dirt left, it became easier for our specialists to work through all the areas that needed repairs, such as removing the loose grout from the shower joints until all the grout lines were ready for sealing. Then, they applied ColorSeal to make the grout match the floor's color. Our flagship sealant is a shower's best defense, not only against external substances but also from the effects of wear and tear. By guarding the grout pores and preventing the absorption of water and dirt, our sealant helps improve the grout on a day-to-day basis without adding more effort to a homeowner's cleaning routine.
Following this, our specialists installed epoxy grout on the shower joints to enhance their protection and make regular maintenance more effective. They applied Tile Armor to the rest of the shower surface and called the client back into the room to see the results.
He was thrilled by the shower's final look. The tiles looked brand new, and there was no dirt bringing attention to the floor's texture. More than anything, seeing the grout lines so clean took a huge weight off his shoulders. He thanked our specialists and promised to recommend our restoration services from then on.
Before leaving, our specialists shared additional tips to help the client with his cleaning routine. First of all, they recommended using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to clean all shower surfaces more effectively. Our product guarantees the best care for the tiles and grout, helping remove grime, soap scum, mold, and mildew without damaging the surface after regular use. It has no harsh ingredients and releases no chemical fumes into the air after you use it, so it's the perfect solution to make cleaning simpler and safer. Shower surfaces are constantly at risk of getting molding because of all the moisture, so our specialists recommended avoiding leaving pools of water and product residue sitting on the shower after using it. Proper ventilation is another necessary step to keep a shower dry when it's not being occupied. On a related note, they recommended wiping all the stains with a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to avoid accidentally scratching the tiles.
