Glencoe Resident Avoids Costly Repairs to his Stained Shower with Grout Recoloring and Sealing
February 17, 2016An elegant shower is a dream for many new homeowners. It gives your bathroom that luxurious, sophisticated look and feel that is inviting and comfortable. This was the case for our Glencoe homeowner's shower - its appealing and sophisticated look had faded through years of regular usage, and the grout was now discolored and stained. This unfortunate turn of events worried our customer, who thought that she would need to renovate her shower entirely. A renovation would not only be expensive but would take a long time to complete. She couldn't bear the thought of not being able to use her magnificent shower. Since she was so worried, she told her neighbor and close friend about her concern that her shower would never be the same again. Luckily, her friend suggested that maybe sealing or recoloring her grout could do the trick. Our client was holding on to the hope that her friend was right and that a renovation wouldn't be necessary after all, so she decided to search online for Glencoe grout recoloring and sealing services. Sure enough, she found Sir Grout of Chicago's website and was so impressed by reviews of our staff's efficient and quick service that she contacted us immediately for an appointment.
Showers, unfortunately, are very susceptible to damage throughout years of usage, and they can also be very difficult to maintain with regular cleaning products. This is due in large part to the build-up of soap-scum, shampoo, conditioner, as well as chemicals from other bathroom products that come into contact with the surface. These products seep into the grout pores on the shower floor as water evaporates off of the surface. This causes the grout lines to become stained, and many homeowners spend hours trying to remove the damage with common cleaning products to no avail, mainly because the residues of bathroom products are already deeply embedded into the grout lines. Therefore, a professional grout recoloring and sealing is the best chance to recover your grout without having to sacrifice your entire shower floor.
Upon arriving at the homeowner's house, our team of trained professionals decided to inspect the problem. The team decided the most efficient and long-lasting solution would be to clean the shower tiles thoroughly and then apply Sir Grout's ColorSeal to the grout lines. Our client was pleased to find out that even though the grout lines in her shower were badly stained and discolored, a renovation wouldn't be necessary at all. Sir Grout's ColorSeal process re-colors grout while making it stain- and water-resistant, as well as mold- and mildew-resistant. It is a long-term solution that, when properly maintained, can last as long as the grout itself. To put the cherry on top of the job, our team decided to apply Tile Armor tile protector.
Our customer was invited to see the finished product and was overwhelmed with the results. She was so pleased to see that her shower was now as elegant and sophisticated as she remembered. She kindly thanked our team for their services, which she described as professional and impeccable. Our team was equally satisfied with the services performed and thanked our customer for confiding in Sir Grout of Chicago's services.
A great way to maintain shower tiles at home is to clean them regularly with a pH-neutral cleaner. However, Sir Grout recommends taking preventative action and suggests that homeowners seal their grout as soon as it is installed, especially on surfaces where chemicals are frequently used, such as bathroom and shower floors. The benefits of using ColorSeal are that it leaves grout and tiles looking like new and protects grout against all stains, which preserves its appearance throughout the years and averts costly renovations.
Whenever your grout becomes stained or discolored and needs to be sealed or re-colored, Sir Grout can be of assistance. If you live in Glencoe or surrounding areas, don't hesitate to call our local phone number, we will gladly give you a free evaluation!
