A Grout Cleaning in Franklin Lakes, NJ, Gave This Shower a Wonderful Makeover
April 27, 2018Taking a shower should be a peaceful time, where you let all your worries fade and relax for a while. In a murky looking shower, it is difficult to be at peace. This couple from Franklin Lakes, NJ, wanted their shower to look like it did in its prime, without having to spend thousands remodeling and replacing tiles.
They were not very happy with the condition of their shower. After a long day of work, taking a shower was the best way to unwind and relax. Recently, they started to feel uncomfortable in their shower. The walls and floors looked dull and had a muddy shade, the grout lines around the tiles were filled with dirt, grime and soap scum, and the shower had an unappealing appearance. Taking a shower was no longer a relaxing experience, so the wife thought she needed to look for a professional grout cleaning service in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Her husband, however, had another idea.
He thought it would be more convenient to do the job by himself, so he investigated and asked his friends for methods to clean the grout. His wife was a bit more concerned and told him that perhaps it was a better idea to replace the tiles and remodel their shower or to hire professional help in grout cleaning. Her husband insisted he could do it all by himself.
The next day, he talked about the problem with his friends and they told him to buy some cleaning products. As they suggested, he bought acid cleaners, baking soda, soapy cleaners and everything that claimed to be useful and effective for cleaning grout lines. Despite spending the entire day cleaning the shower, there were no changes, so his wife decided it was time to look for professional help. She went online and searched for a grout cleaning company in Franklin Lakes, NJ. In the top results, she found Sir Grout Northern New Jersey and was immediately impressed by the quality of service we offered. The positive comments of our former clients convinced her we were the solution for her problem. She filled out the "Request a Quote" form and scheduled a free in-home evaluation.
On the scheduled day, our team of professionals arrived at the house. The owners showed us the shower and we promptly began the evaluation. The shower was indeed in terrible shape; the grout lines were cracking and had mold and mildew. We explained that improper cleaning methods and harsh products attracted more dirt and grime to the grout. We told the couple that a full re-grout job was necessary in order to completely restore the shower to its former glory. They agreed and set up a date for the job.
Our team returned to the couple's house to perform the cleaning procedure. We began the process by removing all the grout from the walls and floor. We carefully re-grouted all the lines with our proprietary Epoxy Grout, giving them a long term, low maintenance solution. After thoroughly working on the walls and floor, they had a brand-new look, but we were not done yet. Afterward, we sealed the grout using our proprietary Tile Armor, to prevent future damage. We explained that Tile Armor is water- based, non-toxic, and safe for everyone in the house, pets included. After the work was completed, the couple had a renewed shower.
Remodeling a shower and replacing the tiles is a labor-intensive, time-consuming, costly project. Re-tiling a shower takes days plus the expense factor with the cost of labor and new tiles, making it a less than desirable option. It is a troublesome process that most people want to avoid. This couple was worried that they might have to undergo such grueling measure to have a clean, new looking shower. After our work was finished, however, their shower had that fresh look they so much desired.
We invited the couple to have a look at their shower. They were amazed and thrilled with the results. Their shower looked pristine and clean once again. The couple stated that they would feel comfortable in their clean, brand-new looking shower. They were thankful and happy to have found us, and said that from now on they would recommend Sir Grout Northern New Jersey to all their friends who needed grout cleaning services. This re-grouting process saved thousands in remodeling and tile replacement.
The porous nature of grout makes it prone to attracting water and filth. In a moist environment such as a shower, grout is susceptible to mildew, mold, and soap scum. Over time, these things will make it look unclean and soiled. Our plastic-based Epoxy Grout is more resilient to mold and mildew and is less likely to grow them. On the other hand, our water-based Tile Armor is a penetrating sealant that will protect the tiles in the future and make them more resistant to grime and soap scum. It would be easier for the couple to keep their shower in top condition from that point on.
Before leaving, our experts gave some recommendations to help preserve the beautiful look of their shower. First, we suggested doing proper and regular maintenance using the right tools and products. Also, we told them never to use a dirty mop, and to avoid acid or alkaline based cleaners. We recommended soap-free pH neutral cleaners, which won't leave sticky residue and don't need to be rinsed.
