The Best Newtown Grout Sealing Specialists Revamp a Marble Shower and Vanity Top
December 23, 2021A couple in Newtown, CT, had spent months getting things in order to move out of their six-year-old house. Planning a move is always hectic, but they did their best to keep a tight schedule that would allow having all their affairs in order before the home inspection date rolled in. While keeping a tally of the improvements that could be made before putting the house on the market, the couple saw that the main bathroom needed some restorations. Thankfully, they hired the best Newtown Grout Sealing professionals to handle the challenge.
After giving the bathroom a closer assessment, the clients saw that the grout lines in both the shower and the vanity top showed signs of deterioration. Some joints were completely covered in grime, giving the whole bathroom area an unsanitary look that was at odds with the couple's strict cleaning habits. The whole bathroom's look was defined by the rustic touch that tumbled marble brought to the shower and vanity, but this also concealed some of the grout damage in plain sight. Conventional cleaning methods had no effect on the grout, but the couple didn't grow discouraged. They favored a time-effective solution that could keep their moving project on schedule, so they wasted no time going online looking for a company that could offer a reliable approach to their problem. The couple immediately landed on our website and, soon after, they contacted the specialists at Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County to ask for a free in-home consultation.
As requested, we went to their house and assessed each surface within the clients' bathroom. The grout lines had indeed been worn down by over scrubbing and decay. They also were unsealed, which explained how the damage had spread so rapidly, particularly on the shower's floor. We told the couple that the grout's porous surface could easily absorb all sorts of substances, from water to grime and mold, and regular cleaning products would only add to the problem unless there was a sealant preserving the grout's surface. We explained that regrouting was the best course of action and that the grout needed to be sealed afterward to ward off external elements. After getting a detailed explanation of the process, the clients were ready to get started with the restoration, but we explained that the right equipment was needed to work on the grout. They agreed to schedule a new appointment, and our specialists were back at their house a few days later.
At the start of the process, our technicians used a grout-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to remove the grime that was embedded in the grout and tiles. As our pH-neutral cleaner loosened the grime, our machine scrubbed it out until all surfaces were smooth and unsoiled. Because our product leaves no residue that could prompt structural damage, we could safely move on to repairing the grout lines.
For this next step, our specialists replaced the damaged caulk with a resilient epoxy solution that surpasses regular caulk or grout in terms of durability. The solution is not porous, so there's no way for external elements to seep into the grout lines. It also helps to prevent the growth of fungi, mold, and mildew, making it easier for homeowners to upkeep proper hygienic conditions within their bathrooms and shower areas.
To complete the restoration process, our crew applied our signature ColorSeal to the grout lines. Sir Grout's special sealant is harmless to all kinds of hard surfaces and simplifies cleaning practices considerably. It wards off dirt and grime from the grout while bringing out the color and texture of tumbled marble in a very flattering way. After the grout was sealed, both the shower and the vanity top had a brand-new look that fits perfectly into the clients' plans. As expected, they were delighted by the end result, claiming that our crew had revitalized the bathroom with a stylish air that hadn't been there before.
We left the couple with some recommendations that would help them spiff up their bathroom for the upcoming house inspection and ensure the proper maintenance of their new home. We started by suggesting soap-free, pH-neutral formulas like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner for everything related to hard surface cleaning. Marble surfaces are relatively delicate, and when you add the problems that moisture, mold, and mildew can unleash on a shower, the best option is to rule out harsh agents that would only worsen the stains on the stone. Our product's top-of-the-line composition leaves a bathroom thoroughly free of dirt and grime without adding gradual damage to the surface. We also recommended using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag to make sure no residue is left on the grout joints and other narrow spaces. The couple was grateful for our suggestions and eager to recommend our services to their acquaintances.
