Stanton Tile Sealing: Outstanding Restoration Process to Revamp Damaged Surfaces
December 04, 2020A resident from Dewey Beach needed Sir Grout's assistance. While cleaning his shower, he noticed the tiles and the grout looked dirty and run-down. Despite his efforts, the condition of the surface didn't improve. Determined to solve the problem as soon as possible, the owner tried some DIY methods he found online. Unfortunately, nothing worked.
After considering his options, he decided to hire professionals. As he was searching for a hard surface restoration company, one of his friends told him about Sir Grout Delaware. She was a loyal customer and highly recommended our Dewey Beach Tile Sealing service, saying we had done an amazing job in her house. Following her suggestion, he went online to get more information about us. After thoroughly browsing our website, he was convinced we were the best option. He filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment.
As requested, we visited his house to perform the in-home consultation. We immediately noticed the grout in the shower area had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue. When this happens, the surface acquires a dark, unsanitary appearance. The caulking in the walls and the floor joints was in poor condition as well. As the evaluation continued, we learned the grout lines needed sealing. Common grout is a porous mixture and can easily absorb external agents. To prevent damages and deterioration, it's necessary to keep the surface fully sealed. When we finished the assessment, we concluded that regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide an effective restoration. This job required Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We proposed a tile sealing service to improve the shower with a renewed appearance and give the surface a coating of long-lasting protective sealer. The owner was pleased with the offer and hired us without hesitation.
We returned on the scheduled date to begin the tile sealing job. For the first step of the restoration, we cleaned the surface using our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our pH-neutral product doesn't leave a residue and it won't cause any damage to the tiles or grout. It effectively loosens the soling and our machine scrubs it out. After applying the cleaning solution, we used a steam cleaner to remove any embedded dirt. Once we sanitized the shower, we repaired the grout lines using professional diamond saws. We thoroughly worked on the entire surface until we fixed all the issues.
To continue the job, we addressed the caulking. Since the caulk was badly damaged, it was necessary to replace it. For optimal results, we used a resilient epoxy solution. Unlike regular caulk, this product isn't porous and offers many benefits. It is ideal for showers because it is resistant to mold and mildew. For the final step, we sealed the grout lines using Sir Grout's ColorSeal. Our top of the line sealant provides unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, reducing deterioration from daily use. ColorSeal also gives the grout a uniform color, greatly improving the surface. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owner to match the tiles with the grout. When we finished the restoration, the shower looked great.
Our client was beyond thrilled with the results of our work. He was very happy because the process had been fast, efficient, and cost-effective. After thanking us, he said our performance surpassed all his expectations and assured us he would recommend Sir Grout Delaware to everyone.
Showers are subjected to heavy wear and tear. For this reason, the tiles and the grout can deteriorate quickly. Following our recommendations is the best way to keep these challenging surfaces in top condition. We suggested setting a regular cleaning routine using only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is easy to use and it's made with high-quality ingredients. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend soap-based cleaners and substances with acidic properties. These products contain agents that can harm the surface and lead to more severe issues like structural damage.
Mold and mildew are a constant threat in damp areas. Before long, these fungi can become troublesome and pose a health hazard for everyone in the house. To prevent this problem, we recommended keeping the area well-ventilated and dry. Allow the moisture to flow freely by leaving the door ajar or a window open, and always dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing after using the shower also helps to reduce the accumulation of dirt.
