A homeowner in Flatbush took his shower's hygiene very seriously, so he was disappointed by the lack of results in his cleaning routine. Despite his best efforts, traces of mold had become a fixture on many of his shower surfaces, particularly the horizontal seams and the tiles close to the floor. He felt that his shower had lost all its former beauty and was determined to find a solution to the problem.

Shower Floor and Walls Before and After a Tile Cleaning in Flatbush
After proving that regular cleaners had no effect of the stains, the next step was obvious. The homeowner went online looking for tile cleaning services in Flatbush and found Sir Grout Brooklyn almost right away. Our website stood out from anything the homeowner had seen before. All the information available spoke of our team's expertise and the results in our picture gallery showed everything he wanted for his own shower.

The homeowner completed the online process for his request in only a few minutes, reassured by the possibility of having his shower inspected by our techs that same week. On the appointed date, our crew arrived at his house, wearing their uniforms and showing Sir Grout's logo on their vehicle. The client greeted them at his doorstep and led them to the bathroom so they could start their inspection of the shower.

In there, they saw the stains on the grout lines and discovered some areas where the caulk had gone loose. Efflorescence had also left lager yellow spots on many of the tiles, making the walls look very unattractive overall. Our experts went over these issues with the clients once they were done assessing the shower. They explained that moisture and soap can trigger the discoloration of hard surfaces, especially when there's no sealant protecting the grout pores.

Regular cleaners won't make a difference because they don't work against embedded dirt. In fact, they have enough soap to cover surfaces under a foamy film, trapping external elements on the grout pores. Between that and the corrosion caused by hard water, it's no wonder that shower surfaces lose their beauty so fast after the sealant starts to fade. With all this in mind, our techs offered their services and explained Sir Grout's restoration process to the client so he could make an informed decision. In the end, he didn't have to mull over it after seeing our crew's expertise first hand.

Following his request, our experts returned a couple of days later for the restoration. Before cleaning the shower, they protected the area with clear plastic and masking tape. Then, they used a surface-safe cleaner to get the dirt loose and scrubbed off each of the stains. At this point, they also vapor cleaned the shower to eliminate all the mold and soap scum from harder-to-reach surfaces.

The grout was ready for the next part of the process. Our specialists installed epoxy grout on all the seams after removing the damaged caulk. Thanks to our epoxy solution, the joints are less prone to structural damage because they're not exposed to the risks attached to cement-based grout.

The client had told our crew that he wanted the grout to blend in with the tiles, so they recolored the grout on the floor and walls with our signature ColorSeal. Our amazing sealant doesn't stop at giving the grout the perfect makeover, it also provides lasting protection against external agents like grime, mold, mildew, and soap scum. It's the ideal solution to keep a shower looking its best.

The shower looked gorgeous, and the homeowner loved the result. The tiles looked as good as new, and the clean grout only added to their beauty. He praised our skills and promised to tell all his friends and relatives about our tile cleaning services.

Before leaving the house, our specialists shared some tips to help the client with routine maintenance. Their first recommendation was to switch from traditional products to pH-neutral cleaners. This way, he could save time and effort on shower cleaning without worrying about any negative side effects. Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner combines all the benefits that make pH-neutral cleaners so effective. It works like a charm against stubborn stains caused by mold, mildew, and soap residue, removing all traces of dirt without leaving marks behind. Its cleaning power allows homeowners to get amazing results in harder-to-reach areas like the grout lines on the floor and the corner joints.

On this end, we also recommend using non-abrasive tools to simplify things. A towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee will reach narrow surfaces more effectively without scratching the surrounding tiles, so they're the best option to use next to your cleaner.

Lastly, our techs reminded the client to keep the bathroom properly ventilated at all times. It's hard to stop the spread of mold when surfaces are constantly subjected to moisture, but you can do it by wiping out any excess water and by keeping a constant source of fresh air. Sometimes, opening the windows and doors can make all the difference to minimize the stains on your shower surfaces.
