This Shower's Travertine Floor Was Completely Renovated After a Tile Cleaning Service in Scottsdale
October 13, 2016When these Scottsdale homeowners bought their current house 10 years ago, they made some changes to adapt it to their preferences. For this, they hired an architect to create some artistic, new looks for the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Then, they hired a team of builders to execute the plans. Among all of the numerous changes that were done, they had a customized brown and beige travertine shower built in the master bathroom. This shower provided great comfort to the owners when they showered in the morning and after work. For them, this was not only a wonderful place to relax, but also a great piece of art.
Nevertheless, as years passed, the floor of this shower started to become stained, which gave it an unappealing appearance. After some time, the homeowners realized that something needed to be done to fix it. Since they did not know what to do, they decided to look for the help of a specialist. The homeowners were used to searching all of the services they needed on the Internet, so they looked for a Scottsdale tile cleaning service online. That is how they found out about Sir Grout Phoenix. After reading our blog posts about satisfied clients and how our team of professional restorers had renovated several hard surfaces in nearby areas, they decided to contact us to book an appointment.
When the day of the appointment came, our specialists arrived at the house and examined the shower. Upon doing this, they determined that the travertine floor had not been properly maintained, which had given way to soap scum and dirt buildup, thus discoloring the stone. Besides this, there was also hard water buildup. Our team told the homeowners they could solve the problem by scraping the affected area, cleaning it, and then sealing the stone to prevent that situation from happening again. The homeowners agreed, so our specialists went back the next day to perform the task.
Our team of hard surface specialists started the restoration process by scraping the surface of the floor to remove all the dirt and soap scum buildup. Then, they cleaned the area using a steam cleaner to remove any remaining grime. After this, they applied a penetrating sealer to help protect the stone from stains.
When the homeowners looked at the final result, they were glad and thanked the team for their job. They said that the job was superb, as the shower floor now looked like new. Our experts gave them recommendations on how they should maintain the shower to make its new look last for a long time. Among the recommendations, they told them to dry the floor after every use to prevent excess moisture and remove any soap residue or cleaning product used in the shower. By doing this, they would prevent mold growth and hard water buildup. Also, they advised them to clean it periodically using a proper travertine cleaner, because travertine is sensitive to acidic substances and, therefore, not just any home cleaner is suitable for it.
