Tumbled Marble Shower Looks Brand New Thanks to Boston Grout Sealing Specialists
March 07, 2022There are a few things to keep in mind when you have a marble shower. The first is that a beautiful stone can't really shine until it's paired with flawless grout lines. The second is that, in order to maintain your grout clean without damaging the surface, you must be careful about the cleaning product you choose. Using soap-based cleaners can be disastrous for both marble and grout.
A homeowner from Boston, MA, went through this experience. She purchased some cleaning products and attempted to clean the shower with them, but the results were less than satisfactory. Although some of the filth had vanished, the grout's filthy appearance remained the same. She saw that this was only getting worse with time, so she decided to get professional assistance.
During a conversation with a friend, our client brought up the issue with the shower. Her friend immediately told her about us, since we had done a floor restoration at her place a few months prior. She went online and searched for our website and found us right away. The homeowner was sure our Boston Grout Sealing services were exactly what she needed after perusing our before and after picture gallery. She called, explained the situation, and requested a free in-home evaluation.
We went to the homeowner's home a few days after she filled out our form. Following a successful inspection, we informed the owners of our results. The grout was in terrible shape and had accumulated dirt, and the caulking had been damaged. We also let the owner know the surface had to be sealed. We highlighted the importance of using a special sealer to prevent future deterioration. For a successful repair, Sir Grout's expertise and high-end equipment were required. To repair the damage and restore the shower, we offered a multi-step grout sealing procedure. The owner liked our evaluation and decided to work with us.
We returned with the tools needed to restore the shower after the scheduled appointment. Because grout sealing is a laborious process, we must follow a set of steps. We began by cleaning the surface with our proprietary cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaner is pH-neutral, soap-free, and leaves no residue, ensuring that the tiles and grout are not harmed. After cleaning the surface, we began the grout repairs. We worked painstakingly throughout the shower, removing any imperfections with precision diamond saws. We proceeded on to the caulking after finishing the grout repair.
The caulking had to be replaced because it was in horrible shape. To carry out this step of the procedure, we used our strong epoxy solution. Unlike regular caulk or grout, this product is not porous and delivers long-lasting results. Because it's stain, mold, and mildew resistant, it's ideal for showers. The grout lines were then sealed with Sir Grout's ColorSeal. Our top-of-the-line sealant provides unrivaled protection. It withstands daily wear and tear while protecting against dirt and filth. ColorSeal refreshes the grout, giving it a more consistent color and a fresh appearance. It comes in a variety of colors, allowing homeowners to match their tiles to their grout.
We completed the multi-step restoration, the shower looked wonderful, and we were ready to present the results to our client. The owner was astounded by the restoration we had done to her shower. She believed we did a fantastic job. She said our work had exceeded her expectations and that she would tell her family about Sir Grout of Greater Boston.
Showers are subjected to a lot of wear and tear, thus requiring special care. Sir Grout's advice must be followed to avoid major deterioration. To avoid the accumulation of filth and grime, we recommend implementing a weekly cleaning routine. Use only soap-free, pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is made with high-quality ingredients and provides numerous advantages. It's non-toxic and pet-safe.
Soap-based cleaners should be avoided since they leave behind a residue that can penetrate the grout lines. As a result, staining, discoloration, and overall degradation may occur. Cleaning solutions that are acidic are also not recommended. These solutions are made up of strong chemicals that will damage your surface over time.
Mold and mildew grow in damp conditions. As a result, it's critical to keep the shower well-ventilated and dry. After you've finished using the shower, leave the door ajar or the window open. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. One of the most effective ways to maintain the surface clean is to keep it as dry as possible.
