Our Newark Grout Sealing Experts Remarkably Restored This Damaged Old Shower and Gave the Surface a Gorgeous New Look
September 21, 2020A resident from Newark, DE contacted us because she needed professional assistance to restore her shower. It was a very old surface that had endured years of heavy wear and tear. Because of this, maintenance had become a challenge. The owner tried regular cleaning routines, but the condition of the shower didn't improve. Determined to solve the problem, she used some DIY methods she found online. Unfortunately, nothing worked. Frustrated with the negative results, she asked one of her friends for advice.
Thankfully, her friend was a Sir Grout Delaware client. He immediately recommended our services, saying we had done an amazing job restoring his granite floor. He advised her to contact us as soon as possible. Following his suggestion, she went online to find more information about us on our website. After thoroughly browsing our site and reading all the positive testimonials our satisfied customers have left us, she was convinced we were the best option. She called us and requested a free assessment. Our Newark Grout Sealing experts provided the solution she was looking for and now her old shower looks new.
Shortly after the in-home consultation request, we arrived to inspect the shower. We immediately noticed the grout on the floor and the joints were in poor condition. Over the years, it had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue. As a result, the grout lines had acquired a dark, unsightly color. As the evaluation continued, we learned the surface needed sealing. We explained that common grout is a porous mixture. It can absorb external agents, which leads to quick deterioration and more issues. To prevent future damages, it's necessary to keep this vulnerable component fully sealed.
When we finished the inspection, we concluded regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide the results the owner expected. An effective restoration required Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We proposed a grout sealing service to address the damages and give the surface a resilient protective coating. The owner was happy with the offer, so she hired us without hesitation.
We returned a few days later with the necessary equipment to begin the restoration. For optimal results, our grout sealing process follows a series of steps. We began by cleaning the surface using our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product is pH-neutral, doesn't leave a residue, and it's made with top-quality ingredients. After applying the cleaning solution, we steam-cleaned the shower to remove any embedded dirt. Once everything was spotless, we proceeded with the grout repairs. For this task, we used high-end diamond saws and we painstakingly worked on the entire surface until we fixed all the issues. When we finished the repairs, we were ready for the sealing process.
To ensure long-lasting protection, we applied a coating of Sir Grout's flagship sealant ColorSeal. Our top of the line product is ideal for showers because it reduces deterioration from daily use. With unmatched defense, it wards off dirt, grime, and prevents mold and mildew growth. ColorSeal also improves the surface by giving the grout a revamped appearance and a brand-new color. The owner can choose from a variety of colors and request to match the tiles with the grout. After a successful restoration, the shower looked great and the surface had a resilient shield that would last for a long time.
Our client was extremely happy with our job. She was pleased because the process had been fast and cost-effective. After thanking us, she said our performance had surpassed all her expectations and assured us she would recommend Sir Grout Delaware to everyone.
Shower maintenance can become a difficult and time-consuming chore. These surfaces receive heavy use and over time, the deterioration can be severe. Following Sir Grout's recommendations is the best way to keep this challenging area in top condition. We suggested setting a regular cleaning routine. When performing this task, use only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike regular store-bought products, our cleaner won't cause any damage and offers many benefits. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaning solutions or substances that contain acidic properties. These products are harsh, leave a residue, and can damage the tiles and grout.
Mold and mildew are a constant threat in showers and pose a health hazard for everyone. To keep fungi at bay, it's necessary to decrease the levels of moisture. We recommended keeping the area dry and well-ventilated. After using the shower, leave the door ajar or window open. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly also helps to reduce the accumulation of dirt.
As you can see in the before and after pictures, restoring your shower can be easy and fast with Sir Grout Delaware's help. We have years of experience and vast knowledge of hard surface restoration. With our grout sealing process, we can give any surface a beautiful new look and long-lasting protection.
