Cleaning high-traffic surfaces can be overwhelming when there's no clear solution for the dirt that makes its way to the seams. A homeowner in Bayside was tired of repeating the same grueling process on his shower only to find larger stains the next day. He tried different cleaners, but nothing managed to restore the seams' original color. To top it all off, the homeowner had been going through similar issues on his hallway floor for weeks so he had more than enough reason to question the effectiveness of his cleaning products.

The homeowner knew that following the same DIY method with a different cleaner wouldn't make much of a difference, so he decided to contact our tile and grout cleaners in Bayside. He'd come across our website while looking for cleaning tips and by then, he was halfway convinced about leaving the problem in the hands of a professional.

Only a few days after his discovery, the homeowner decided to contact Sir Grout Queens via our online scheduler. He filled out the form to request an in-home evaluation and secured an appointment with our specialists in only a few minutes. Now that he had the support of our hard surface experts, it felt like a weight had been lifted off his shoulders.

On the scheduled date, our techs were at his doorstep to look at the issue. First, they evaluated the shower, paying special attention to the seams to rule out the chances of structural damage. As expected, the most obvious issue was the yellowed grout on the corner joints. Grout discoloration is a fairly common occurrence that's triggered by the high concentration of minerals in the water. In time, the grout takes an unattractive shade of orange and its surface becomes more vulnerable to mold and mildew. The stains on the hallway floor were easier to conceal but that didn't stop the area from looking dull and neglected.

When the homeowner asked about the ineffectiveness of traditional cleaners, our experts explained that soap-based products don't do much more than create a foamy film on the surface, allowing the accumulation of new stains. The solution was a deep cleaning service, followed by the necessary repairs to preserve the grout long-term. The homeowner had a few questions about the specifics of our restoration process, so our techs cleared his doubts before he scheduled a second appointment.

Following his request at the end of the evaluation, our specialists returned to his home later that week to restore the shower and the hallway floor. They started by running a high-speed scrubber across the floor after letting our cleaner sit on the surface for a few minutes. When they moved to the shower, our crew prepared the surrounding area with clear plastic before soaking all shower surfaces with the same permeating cleaner. Then, they vapor-cleaned the shower stall to fully remove all traces of mold from the grout and the walls.

The next step was the grout's restoration. Our experts started with the vertical seams since this was the most affected part of the shower. After removing the loose caulk, they installed epoxy grout on the surface, providing a strong solution to eliminate all the downsides of cement-based grout. The grout lines on the walls and the floors were recolored with our flagship ColorSeal, an acrylic-based sealant that keeps mold, grime, efflorescence, and other external elements from seeping into the grout.

The restoration left both parts of the house looking as good as new, and the client was impressed by the quality of our work. He thanked our crew for their services and promised to share the most glowing recommendations with all his friends and acquaintances in the Bayside area.

Here are the tips we share with clients at the end of each appointment: First, traditional cleaners can hardly keep up with all the moisture that a shower collects over time. PH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner permeate shower surfaces to eliminate all the dirt without altering the tiles' color or the sealant's protection. Our cleaner consistently leaves your shower surfaces smooth and stain-free so you can see a real improvement in your cleaning routine. Its performance is also enhanced by the tools you use to scrub off the dirt, which is why we always recommend non-abrasive tools like a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee. This approach also ensures more precision in harder-to-reach areas like the corner joints.

The right cleaning habits are an important starting point, but you also need to ensure that your bathroom surfaces are well ventilated when you aren't actively cleaning them. Good indoor ventilation is important in any part of the house, but its importance is particularly evident when you consider all the ways in which mold and mildew can harm your shower's hygiene.
