No homeowner feels comfortable with soiled bathroom surfaces, and there's no way to ignore the stains on a shower for long. A homeowner in Long Island City didn't waste time after spotting mold residue on her shower seams but was confused when, at the end of a long round of scrubbing, all the stains stayed in place.

Shower Before and After a Service from Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Long Island City
It was the first time she'd had this problem in years. Because of this, the homeowner suspected that months of water and soap-based products had finally removed what was left of the sealant. She had sealed her grout surfaces two years before, so it was a good time to get input from a hard surface professional. The shower tiles had also taken a sad, dull look so the homeowner took the chance to see if our tile and grout cleaners in Long Island City were available for an in-home evaluation.

She visited our website to schedule the appointment, trusting that the specialists at Sir Grout Queens would know what to do. On the scheduled date, our techs went to her home to inspect her master shower.

Their evaluation confirmed many of the homeowner's concerns. There were no traces of sealant left on the grout lines and the porous surface had absorbed a lot of soap scum over several weeks. As our techs explained, this was also worsened by the use of multiple chemical cleaners on the shower, which also explained the lack of shine on all tile surfaces. Unfortunately, harsh cleaners can do a number on bathroom surfaces when they're already exposed to moisture and other artificial products. Mold and mildew spread quickly, and these cleaners leave the grout unprotected when external elements get stuck on the surface. Our specialists knew what to do, so they explained their restoration process to the client after reassuring her that none of the shower surfaces had suffered lasting damage. By the end of their explanation, the client was excited to have her master shower restored by our crew, so she immediately scheduled a second appointment.

Our crew returned right on schedule a few days later. They brought the necessary equipment to give the shower a full makeover and started working as soon as they got to the shower stall. For the first step, our team soaked all parts of the shower with a surface-safe cleaner. The cleaner permeated the areas between the tiles to simplify the removal of all the embedded dirt. Soon enough, all the stains were loose enough for our techs to scrape them out. They also steam cleaned the shower area for good measure, ensuring that our cleaning power reached every edge and corner.

With no stains left on the shower, our techs got ready to seal all the grout lines. They applied Sir Grout's flagship ColorSeal and recolored the grout to match the color of the tiles. This amazing sealant works wonders to revamp grout surfaces, simultaneously upgrading their looks and preserving their durability against wear and tear. Its protection repels water, soap scum, grime, mold, mildew, and other external elements, so clients don't have to deal with as many stains in their day-to-day routine. This is the ultimate solution to preserve high-traffic surfaces.

Our techs also installed epoxy grout on the seams, specifically in portions that had grown loose due to time and decay. Resistant to water, mold, and mildew, our epoxy grout is an asset to keep showers from suffering structural damage.

The shower looked pristine, and the homeowner had nothing but praise for our team when they showed her the results. She took her time admiring the walls and the floor, loving how the shower revitalized her entire bathroom with its beauty.

Our experts left the client with a few useful cleaning tips. When she asked about alternatives to replace acidic cleaners, our techs explained the advantages of using pH-neutral formulas. As they told the client, products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are much more effective at removing mold, mildew, and soap scum. Our unique product works against the embedded dirt in minutes, so homeowners don't need to use chemical-based formulas just to enhance its cleaning power. It also helps preserve tile and grout surfaces in the long run, because it doesn't cause discoloration and works in tandem with our sealant to keep liquids out of the grout pores. To avoid marks and excessive scrubbing, our specialists recommended using non-abrasive tools like a clean towel, a squeegee, or a terry cloth. This way, homeowners will make their showers shine without exerting too much effort during routine maintenance.

After a general reminder to keep an eye on the ventilation in each room, our techs were ready to leave the house. The homeowner thanked them for their recommendations and promised to spread the word so more people could discover the quality of our restoration services.
