In Just One Day, Caulking Services Refreshed This 25-Year-Old White Bathroom in New Canaan, CT
May 11, 2017A bathroom can say a lot about its owner; it's not only the most personal space in a house, but also the room we always want to keep clean for our guests. This homeowner knew that; therefore, when she bought her house in New Canaan, Connecticut, 25 five years ago, she decided that the entire guest bathroom would be white, since it's a color that evokes tidiness and cleanliness. She was proud of her house and always made sure to keep it immaculate.
Nonetheless, as years went by, the bathroom's floor and walls started to look dirty no matter how many times she cleaned them. Besides, decades of foot-traffic, daily use, and thousands of baths had deteriorated the grout lines of the room. On top of that, water was starting to leak due to some cracked caulk, promoting mold and mildew growth. In brief, the bathroom just didn't look pristine and white anymore. After realizing that her bathroom was in a deplorable state, she decided to search online for caulking services in New Canaan that could help her with her problem.
The homeowner found our website among the first search results and decided to call us after reading the customer reviews. We received her call and gladly scheduled an appointment for a free, in-home consultation with our team of caulking specialists for that same week.
Our well-trained restorers arrived early in the morning at the New Canaan resident's home to meet her; she kindly welcomed our team and showed them to the bathroom in question. With just one look at the 25-year-old bathroom, our expert restorers realized why the customer wanted a restoration service – the grout and the joints between the bathtub and the walls were grimy.
After an exhaustive inspection of the room, our team concluded that the tiles, grout, and caulk needed restoration. Especially the bathtub's caulk, since it was so peeled and cracked that it could lead to severe water damage; ergo, future costly repairs. Gladly, our team could solve all those problems in just one day! The homeowner, feeling relieved after hearing our service proposal, agreed and requested that the service be done as soon as possible.
The crew followed our client's requests and set to the task the next day. Our hard surface restorers arrived at 8 a.m. to start with the services. Firstly, a non-toxic, soapless cleaner was applied to the grout and tiles to loosen the embedded dirt; as some of it was difficult to remove, our experts turned to steam cleaning. Once everything was deeply cleaned, the team proceeded to replace any missing or cracked grout, and they removed all the old caulk along the bathtub. Finally, our team applied Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County's proprietary ColorSeal to all the grout lines to protect them from mold and mildew and to make them match the tile's shade. Also, they recaulked the tub with Stainmaster Epoxy Grout. By 6 p.m. all the work had been perfectly completed.
The homeowner expressed her amazement when she entered the room and saw the uniform white color that brightened up the bathroom – the tiles, bathtub, floor, grout, and caulk were all the same color, making the whole room look wonderfully clean and tidy. Our team of restorers were even able to hide two small holes where a former toilet paper holder was placed.
To maintain the bathroom's renewed appearance, our experts advised the New Canaan resident to use a soapless, pH-neutral cleaner for the bathroom. Along with that, they recommended her to be alert for future cracks in the grout or caulk – these are vital in protecting the floor and walls against water damage, so it is essential to always keep them safe and clean.
