See How Our Hard Surface Restoration Services in Fairfield, CT Helped Renew Two Bathrooms in One Day
November 27, 2018
We recently received a call from a Fairfield resident who noticed the showers in her master and guest bathrooms were in poor condition. Time had taken its toll, making the tiles and grout lines appear dirtier than they used to be. After having a brief discussion with her husband, they both agreed that the showers needed to be thoroughly cleaned. Since both of them worked full time, they decided it was best to leave the job in the hands of professionals. For this reason, the homeowners went online and searched for hard surface restoration services in Fairfield, CT
to find a reputable local company. They found our website within the top results, and after seeing some of the testimonials and reviews left by previous customers, they called to schedule a free in-home evaluation.
On the agreed date, our team went to the customer's home to inspect the showers and offer the best possible solution to the problem at hand. In both showers, the grout on the walls and floor had accumulated some grime, making the surfaces look dirty. This was more noticeable in the guest bathroom because of the small ceramic tile pattern on the floor. Our team explained to the homeowners that these occurrences are common because people tend to use harmful cleaning products. These cleaners can wear out grout or leave a film that traps dirt and soap residue on the tiles and grout lines.
After they finished the inspection, our experts concluded that both showers needed a touch up, so they offered the customers a tile and grout cleaning service. They also offered to seal the joints in both showers because they were heavily damaged. To do this, our techs would use our proprietary sealant, epoxy ColorSeal. The homeowners agreed to their proposal and scheduled another appointment to get the job done.
Regular maintenance is the key to keeping hard surfaces in great shape, but it is important to keep in mind that not all methods or products are good for them. For example, acidic cleaners can corrode the grout lines and the sealant. Even though the damage isn't immediately noticeable, it becomes apparent over time. Always make sure to use natural pH-neutral products that are tile and grout safe to avoid unnecessary expenses.
Later that week, our techs went back to the customer's house to restore the showers. They started by thoroughly cleaning the tiles and grout lines with a high-speed scrubber, using a pH-neutral cleaner that contains antimicrobial agents. This cleaner has sanitizing properties that reduce the number of bacteria for up to 24hrs after it has been applied. Grime had heavily accumulated on the shower joints in both bathrooms, so the experts used a steam cleaner to remove it. They finished the job by applying our flagship sealant, epoxy ColorSeal. This is an epoxy-based sealant that is resistant to stains, water, mold, mildew, and other harmful external agents. It also makes the showers easier to clean.
After they finished the job, our team let the homeowners see both bathrooms. They were happy to see how clean both showers looked. They thanked our experts and assured them that if they ever needed any hard surface restoration services in the future, they would make sure to call us again.
Prior to leaving, our techs gave the couple some tips to ensure both showers remained in top condition. First, they advised them to use a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
to avoid damaging the tiles and grout lines during the cleaning process. Additionally, this cleaner's antimicrobial agents will provide an extra layer of protection against harmful microorganisms for up to one week after it has been applied. Second, they recommended cleaning the bathrooms at least once a week. Finally, they recommended wiping the surfaces with a dry cloth after each shower to avoid mold and mildew growth.
