Even the most gorgeous shower will lose its appeal with just a few traces of mold. A homeowner in Palmetto kept trying to recover the beauty of his shower to no avail, and he got more stressed as time went on. The lower half of his shower stall looked completely unrecognizable, with thick black stains that spread around the horizontal seams from all sides.

Tile Shower Before and After Our Hard Surface Restoration Services in Palmetto
The homeowner didn't like feeling so out of his depth. That's why he tried a new cleaner every week for a month before he finally made up his mind about contacting a professional. His online search went more smoothly than expected; he found Sir Grout Sarasota on his first try and had no trouble scheduling an appointment via our website later that day. Our specialists visited his home only two days later, so the homeowner felt confident about our hard surface restoration services in Palmetto from the get-go.

During their in-home evaluation, our techs decided on the best approach after identifying the problem. Many factors had helped the spread of mold and mildew once the sealant had faded away from the grout. For one, shower surfaces are constantly exposed to stale water, with minerals dissolving on top of the grout and tiles. Homeowners expect to counter the damage with bleach and other cleaners, but the soap in many of these formulas only traps the dirt on the porous surface, as shown by the amount of residue that was firmly stuck between the tiles. The seams had absorbed too much liquid so our specialists decided that re-caulking the surface was the best way to provide long-lasting results. They also tested their special cleaner on a portion of the grout, and the result calmed the client's fears about permanent staining. He scheduled a new appointment after the evaluation was done, and our crew promised to return the following day.

They came back to the client's house early in the morning and wasted no time before getting to work. To remove all the dirt and marks, they soaked all shower surfaces with a powerful cleaning formula and started scrubbing after letting the product sit for a couple of minutes. This cleaner provides a quick solution to remove old stains and thick layers of mold with no issue so it's the ideal solution to keep the dirt from growing out of control. Our experts also used a 275-degree vapor cleaner around the entire shower stall, increasing the protection of areas that are constantly exposed to water and soap residue.

It was time to restore the grout. Our crew applied ColoSeal to the grout lines on the walls and the floor, successfully bringing back the grout to its original color with a superb recoloring job. The white grout lines brought out the tile's design while making the shower look larger and more spacious. Our sealant would ensure that the grout kept its pristine appearance, creating a protective layer to repel mold, mildew, product residue, soil, and other external elements.

The corner joints were restored with water-resistant epoxy grout. Our techs regrouted the horizontal seams on all sides after carefully removing the old caulk. Now, the shower would be better equipped to withstand the effects of wear and tear in the long run.

The restoration was a complete success and the client couldn't be happier. He could finally appreciate the sophisticated beauty of his shower stall, from the rich brown tiles to the clean grout adding a special touch. He praised our crew's expertise and promised to tell more people about our hard surface restoration services.

At the end of the appointment, our techs answered the client's questions about surface maintenance, taking the chance to share some additional cleaning tips. Their first recommendation was to use pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner on the shower and other bathroom surfaces. The chemicals in traditional cleaners not only fail to remove many common stains, but they create additional problems like grout damage and surface discoloration. Our cleaner sets the bar with a high-quality formula that works against mold, mildew, efflorescence, and more. The improvement is evident once you start using our product because it takes less time to get top-grade results. Another important step in a successful cleaning routine is to use non-abrasive tools like a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee. These tools help you scrap off any stickiness and product residue without scratching the tiles' delicate surface.

Another important tip that our techs shared with the client: regular cleaning is essential but much of your effort will go to waste if you don't take extra steps to prevent the effects of moisture buildup. It doesn't take long before dampness makes way for mold, compromising your shower's hygiene and bringing a needless health risk. Sometimes, a home's ventilation system isn't enough to reach all parts of a bathroom, so we recommend opening the windows and doors nearby to boost the circulation of fresh air.
