A resident from Lincoln Park, IL, wanted to give his old shower a new look. After years of enduring constant use, the surface had received heavy deterioration. The tiles and the grout looked dirty and run-down. This was a problem for him, and taking showers was no longer a relaxing experience. However, the owner was too busy to solve the issue by himself. After considering his options, he decided it was best to hire a professional hard surface restoration company.

While he was searching, one of his friends told him about Sir Grout Chicago. She was a loyal customer and immediately recommended our Lincoln Park Grout Sealing services, saying it was simply the best. Following her suggestion, he went online to get more information about us. After thoroughly browsing our website, he was convinced we were the right choice. Hoping to solve his problem quickly, he filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment. 

Soon after receiving his request, we visited his house to provide the in-home consultation. As soon as he led us into the shower, we noticed the problems. The grout lines had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue. Because of this, the surface had acquired an unsanitary appearance. The joints were also in poor condition and the grout needed sealing. We explained that grout is porous and can easily absorb external agents. To prevent damages, it's necessary to apply a special sealant.

When we finished the assessment, we had enough insight to offer a solution. Since we had determined that regular cleaning methods wouldn't be an effective solution, the restoration would require Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We proposed our grout sealing services to remove the damages and give the surface a coating of resilient protection. The offer was satisfactory to the owner, so he decided to hire us, and we set up a date for the job.

The restoration began shortly after, as we returned with everything we needed to perform the grout sealing job. For the first step of the process, we cleaned the shower using our exclusive cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product is pH-neutral and doesn't leave a residue. Therefore, it won't cause any damage to the tiles or grout. It effectively loosens the soiling and our machine scrubs it out. After that, we steam cleaned the area to remove embedded dirt.

Once the surface was pristine, it was ready for the grout repairs. For many homeowners, this task can be a headache. Sir Grout, on the other hand, has top-notch equipment and professional processes that can solve any issue on this vulnerable component. We thoroughly worked on the entire shower, revamping the grout lines tenfold. For the following step, we addressed the joints.

Since the damage was severe, this area required an epoxy replacement. Unlike regular caulk or grout, our epoxy solution isn't porous and offers many benefits. It is ideal for showers because it prevents mold and mildew growth. For the final step of the restoration, we sealed the grout lines using Sir Grout's ColorSeal. Our top-of-the-line sealant provides long-lasting results and unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, reducing deterioration from daily use. ColorSeal gives the grout a brand-new appearance, greatly improving the surface. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owner to match the tiles with the grout. The process yielded the results we expected, the shower received a complete overhaul, and the surface was fully protected.

With a successful restoration, we called our client and showed him the renewed shower. Our client was extremely happy with our work. He was thrilled because everything looked perfect. After thanking us, he said our performance surpassed all his expectations and assured us he would recommend Sir Grout Chicago to his friends, family, and neighbors. 

Due to the heavy wear and tear these areas receive, shower maintenance can become troublesome. Therefore, these surfaces can deteriorate quickly and require proper care. For this reason, it's necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations to keep these challenging areas looking great. We suggested setting a weekly cleaning routine. To perform this task efficiently, use only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner.

Our product offers many benefits and it's made with top-quality ingredients. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products contain harsh agents that can harm the surface, causing many issues like stains or discoloration.

It's important to prevent mold and mildew growth. These dangerous fungi thrive in damp areas and pose a health hazard for everyone. It is essential to provide a source of fresh air and to keep the surface dry. To allow the moisture to flow freely, we recommended leaving the door ajar or window open. After using the shower, always dry the surface with a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly is also one of the best ways to reduce the accumulation of dirt and grime.
