There are immense benefits to having hard water in your home. Hard water, which is water that is naturally enriched with minerals like calcium and magnesium, can have good effects on people's health. However, even if hard water can be wonderful for humans, it can be a bit too rough on your bathroom surfaces due to its composition and how it interacts with soap and natural stone.

Before and After Picture of a Bathroom Stone Cleaning Service in Stamford, CT
Our latest clients were having trouble with their master shower. There was a white substance ruining the appearance of the shower floor that they couldn't remove because they would not dare to use abrasive cleaners and instruments on marble, which they knew would etch easily. They did not have the resources to get the results they were looking for, so they decided it was time to do some digging and find the best stone cleaning service in Stamford.

Thankfully, looking for a professional hard surface restoration company couldn't be easier these days, as the internet has become a go-to tool for finding all kinds of goods and services. All our clients needed to do was to use a popular search engine, type "Stamford stone cleaning services," and press enter, and they stumbled upon several options to choose from. One of the first results was Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County. After browsing through all their options, they settled on Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County thanks to its credentials and reputation. They immediately called to set up a free in-home evaluation and see what Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County could do for their shower.

Our technician arrived on the scheduled day to assess the state of the shower and offer the best and quickest solution possible. Once inside the bathroom, he observed that most of their problems stemmed from their use of hard water. The white efflorescence on the walls was due to hard water evaporating and leaving its minerals behind. Also, hard water tends to react chemically with soap, generating a lot of soap scum. To get rid of these two problems without compromising the marble, our technician proposed Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County's professional stone cleaning service. Trusting Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County's reputation and reviews, our clients agreed.

A few days later, our tech returned and quickly got to work. The first thing he needed to do was spray an adequate cleaner and wait for it to start dissolving the soap scum and mineral buildup on the shower floor and walls. This cleaner was specifically designed for marble, so it did not damage the stone while dissolving the soap residue. Then he removed the soap scum with a high-speed scrubber and vacuumed it. Once the cleaning process was done, our technician used a sealant to protect the marble and grout from water damage and make it easier to maintain.

Thanks to the meticulousness of our technician, the results of this stone cleaning job were stellar, and our clients definitely noticed. The job looked like a complete makeover despite the fact that it was only a cleaning procedure. The clients were satisfied with the new appearance of their shower, and they promised to call Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County again if they ever had another soap scum emergency. They even took the time to leave a review to express their satisfaction:

Sir Grout did an excellent job cleaning our shower. It was in bad shape prior to SG with stains and mold. After SG, the shower looked practically new. The shower is travertine marble. Great job!


The probabilities of soap scum appearing again were high, as this is not just a question of maintenance. When hard water minerals react with soap, it impedes soap from dissolving in water. The best solution for this is to invest in a water softener system, but it is understandable that some people still want the benefits of drinking hard water. Thankfully, water softener systems can be configured so that you can have hard water in some places and soft water where you need it. The second-best solution is to properly seal your natural stone surfaces to keep minerals and soap from seeping into them and staining them.
