Showers are one of the most frequently used areas of the home, so it can be challenging to keep them in good shape. In many cases, standard cleaning methods aren't enough to provide satisfactory results, requiring professional help.

Shower Before and After Our Superb Hard Surface Restoration Services in Santa Barbara, CA
A resident of Santa Barbara, CA, was having this problem with her shower. Even with regular cleaning, she was disappointed to see the surface was still dirty and unappealing. After trying alternative methods that didn't work, she went online and searched for hard surface restoration services in Santa Barbara, California, and found Sir Grout Central Coast at the top of Google's results.

She visited our website and was happy to see all the information that was available to her. She then read a few of our blog posts and viewed before and after pictures, which gave her the confidence to fill out our online scheduler to request a free evaluation on a day and time that was most convenient for her.

As always, we arrived on time, in uniform, and in our Sir Grout vehicle on the inspection day. We quickly assessed the problems in her shower and noticed the caulking was damaged and the grout wasn't adequately sealed, which had contributed to the staining, discoloration, mold build-up, and grout decay.

After discussing our assessment with the owner, we suggested the best solution to fix the issues and restore the surface. We recommended our tile and grout cleaning, recoloring, and sealing services using Sir Grout's proprietary products because they are the safest, most advanced products on the market. We told her we would replace the damaged caulk, color seal the grout to bring back its original color, and ensure her shower would look like new again.

We gave her a no-obligation quote outlining the work we would perform. She was surprised at how reasonable the quote was and immediately requested to schedule the job on a future date and time that was convenient for her.

We arrived on the appointed day and time, ready to restore her shower. After preparing the area with clear plastic and masking tape to ensure it was protected while we worked, we set up our equipment and began our multi-step process, letting the homeowner know we were available to answer any questions she might have.

First, we cleaned the surface using a high-speed scrubber and our exclusive cleaner. We explained to the client that our product uses high-quality ingredients that wouldn't leave a residue or damage the shower's surface.

Next, we used a 275-degree vapor steam cleaner to remove embedded dirt and kill mold spores. Satisfied the grout was spotless, we repaired decaying and damaged grout to ensure a beautiful, consistent appearance.

For the following step, we addressed the caulking. Since the caulk was damaged, we replaced it with a resilient epoxy solution. Unlike common mixtures, this product isn't porous and can withstand day-to-day wear. It's ideal for showers because it's resistant to mold and mildew.

Finally, we sealed the grout lines with our flagship sealant, ColorSeal, a high-quality product that protects against dirt, water, stains, and other damage. In addition, it reduces wear and tear, making it easier for the homeowner to maintain.

During our free assessment, we explained to her that what makes our ColorSeal stand out is that it gives grout a uniform color and a completely revitalized appearance, improving the surface tenfold. In addition, our large variety of colors almost always ensures we have a color to match the original color of the grout, or many homeowners choose to change it, providing a new look.

After cleaning up, we invited the homeowner to view the results. She was impressed by what she saw and said she felt like she was stepping into a new shower. She thanked us for a job that exceeded her expectations and promised to recommend our services to family and friends with any hard surface-related issues like hers.

Before leaving, we gave our client some recommendations and helpful tips for maintaining her shower. We suggested a weekly cleaning routine using pH-neutral and soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. We told her it delivers outstanding results, and because it's non-toxic, it won't harm anyone in her household, including pets.

We also suggested she avoid using soap-based products or substances with acidic properties because they contain harsh chemicals that harm the surface and leave a residue that often seeps into the grout to cause discoloration, staining, and other issues.

Since mold and mildew are a potential health threat, we emphasized the importance of taking measures to help prevent their growth. We suggested keeping the area well-lit when possible, providing a source of fresh air by leaving a door or window open, and, after using the shower, drying surfaces with a squeegee, towel, or terry cloth.
