The Grout Lines of This Natural Stone Shower in Darien, CT Came Back to Life Thanks to a Grout Cleaning
October 14, 2016This young couple had saved enough money to buy their first home, and they found their dream house in Darien, CT. The homeowner's wife fell in love with the master shower since it was spacious and stylish, but it needed to be restored. Nevertheless, they bought the house and decided it was a minor issue compared to all the benefits of buying that property. They decided they would hire a professional to take care of the problem.
They wanted to move in right away, so they started browsing the web for Darien grout cleaning companies to make an informed decision about the shower's renewal. Fortunately, they found Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County among the top results. The homeowner decided to ask his brother – a young professional builder, who lived in a different city – if he had heard of our services. He said that he had seen our company's work and that he would recommend us without a doubt. The young owners then contacted us and scheduled an in-home quote.
Our team went to the couple's home and assessed the state of the shower. As soon as they walked into the bathroom, their level of expertise allowed them to notice the deterioration in the floor and walls' grout lines. They also warned the owners about the cracked expansion joints. Our professionals immediately devised a restoration plan that could renew the shower's appearance and prevent future damage. Therefore, they told the homeowners that they had to perform a grout cleaning and sealing service. They also explained that they would need to seal the cracked expansion joints.
Grout is a porous material, which is why moisture and dirt can seep into it. This permeation might cause the grout lines to wear down, causing stains, cracks, flaking, and even crumbling. Sealing grout on time can prevent all these problems and keep your grout lines looking like new. Furthermore, checking the state of your shower's expansion joints and enclosure is crucial to prevent water from leaking under the tiles, which could cause severe damage, such as loose tiles.
The team returned on the day of the job, ready to restore the tile surface. They began by cleaning the shower's floor and walls, using soap-less cleaning products and a high-speed scrubber to remove all the grime from the tiles and grout lines. The experts also used vapor steam to clean stubborn areas. After thoroughly cleaning the tile surface, the crew started to seal the cracked expansion joints by using Stainmaster Epoxy Grout – a tough product that doesn't need any sealant. Its cutting-edge composition creates a shield that protects the joints from water and grime permeation.
Our team of professionals continued the service by sealing the grout lines with our proprietary ColorSeal, a state-of-the-art product that is specially designed to make grout lines resistant to stains, water, mold, and mildew. Besides protecting grout, this innovative product enhances the appearance of grout lines, making them look like new again. Since it comes in different colors – like Stainmaster Epoxy Grout – our customers were able to choose the preferred shade to match their tiles.
When the team finished the service, the homeowners were truly impressed with the modern and fancy appearance that the shower had gained. The homeowner's wife was amazed, and she mentioned that the bathroom felt inviting and warm now – just what they needed to make it a perfect home. They thanked the team with a handshake and told them they were going to recommend our work to everyone they knew.
