Our Superb Kiawah Island Grout Sealing Service Leaves This Shower Glowing
November 10, 2021
A homeowner in Kiawah Island went to great lengths to ensure her shower always looked its best. The gray tiles brought a modern touch that made the shower appear sleek and stylish years even after it'd been built. The grout lines, however, had started collecting enough dirt to ruin the shower's modern look. The effect persisted despite the owner's best efforts to clean all her bathroom surfaces, so she gave up on DIY solutions right after the first homemade formula failed to make progress on the grout.
She enlisted her brother's help to look for a grout restoration service in the area, and he directed her to Sir Grout of the Low Country. After reading through our website, the client figured that her shower's grout had probably worn off at some point because there had been no sealing job done on any part of the house since she'd moved in a few years ago. She contacted Sir Grout of the Low Country via our "Request a Quote" form, sure that our Kiawah Island Grout Sealing
crew would be up for the task. As expected, they were at her doorstep a few days later to conduct an in-home evaluation.
Upon looking at the shower, our techs confirmed that no regular cleaning method would solve the problem. There was grime and soap scum stuck to various parts of the grout, especially near the drain, where most of the water pooled after people used the shower. We explained that generic cleaners and homemade solutions alike were harmful due to the acidic ingredients in their composition. Vinegar, soap-based formulas, and other similar products slowly wore down the surfaces while leaving the grout pores open to water and dirt. The client was expecting this outcome after reading through the information on our website and immediately requested a new appointment to have the shower grout sealed.
We were back a few days later as per her request, this time with all the necessary equipment to complete the restoration process. The first step was cleaning the shower walls and floor with our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our soap-free product is effective against grime, mold, and soap scum without posing any risk on the grout and tiles. We began by applying the product all over the shower's surface, letting it sit long enough for the soiling to come loose. After our machine scrubbed out all the residue, we used a steam cleaner to thoroughly sanitize the shower, including those narrow areas that are more likely to collect dirt.
We used professional diamond saws for the next part of the process to fix the areas where the grout was damaged before applying our signature ColorSeal on the walls and floors. Our proprietary sealant is the best protection to keep your grout from absorbing dirt, water, and grime while ensuring it looks stunning through all your daily chores. When asked about her aesthetic preferences, the client chose to keep the contrast between her tiles and the grout's white tone. We finished applying a coat of sealant on the grout lines and cleaned away the residue, so we were ready to call the client back into the room to see the results.
She was thrilled by the sight of her grout now that they were back to their original appearance. Each corner of the shower looked spotless and knowing that the grout lines were sealed was a huge relief for her, to the point that she started planning to have the same process done in the guest bathroom. We left her with some useful tips to make cleaning more effective and rewarding in the long term. We started by recommending pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
to keep the shower spotless without wearing down the grout and tiles.
Showers are subjected to constant wear and tear due to their exposure to water. When you add soap-based formulas into the equation, the damage that falls on your shower can be hard to undo. Our soap-free product removes dirt, grime, soap scum, and other external elements while keeping the room free of toxic residue. A squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag all work as ideal tools to accelerate the process without scraping the tiles. In addition, keeping the area well ventilated is a simple solution to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
