A homeowner in San Luis Obispo was far from happy with the appearance of his shower. From looking warm and elegantly subdued, the shower had taken an almost rustic look that the homeowner didn't find appealing. Beyond his personal taste, he grew more and more concerned about the spread of mold on the walls, particularly after testing his cleaning products multiple times.

Shower Stall Before and After a Service from Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in San Luis Obispo
He was introduced to Sir Grout Central Coast when he asked some of his relatives for advice, and the results of his own research didn't let him down, our website had all the information he could've asked for and more, The homeowner was set on getting an informed opinion from our tile and grout cleaners in San Luis Obispo so he contacted us via phone call to request an in-home evaluation.

As per his request, our crew went to his house the following day to look at the shower. They inspected the entire stall, taking note of its rundown look as soon as they started. While the tiles looked dull and lifeless, the most visible stains were on the grout. Mold spread from the seams to the grout lines on the floor and the walls, creating several dark spots that were impossible to ignore.

The best course of action was a complete restoration using Sir Grout's professional equipment. Bleach and other regular cleaners wouldn't work on the stains because most of them have enough soap in their formula to keep the dirt trapped on the grout pores. As part of the shower restoration process, our experts also offered to regrout the seams and apply sealant to the grout on the walls since most of it had faded over time. The client was grateful for their assistance and immediately scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.

So, they returned to his house before the end of the week to complete the process. Once inside the client's bathroom, they used clear plastic and masking tape to prepare the area before working on the shower. With that out of the way, our techs applied surface-safe cleaner to get the dirt loose and steam cleaned the entire shower stall. They ensured that there were no traces of mold left on the surface before getting ready to restore the grout.

For this part of the process, our specialists replaced the old caulk on the seams with water-resistant epoxy grout, effectively reinforcing the surface against the worst effects of moisture buildup. Then, they used ColorSeal to recolor the grout on the walls and the floors. Our acrylic-based sealant is available in multiple colors so our techs met the client's request with no issue; they applied white sealant to make the grout stand out from the tiles without contrasting too harshly with the rest of the ceramic surface.

The shower looked amazing and the grout had the strongest protection to keep mold, mildew, and soap scum at bay. As expected, the client was delighted with the transformation and promised to recommend Sir Grout Central Coast all over the area.

Our techs had some additional tips to share before they were ready to leave the client's house. They stressed the importance of avoiding chemical-based cleaners and recommended pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner, instead. When using our cleaner, there's no need to subject hard surfaces to excessive scrubbing because the dirt gets detached from the pores in minutes. Our product works against efflorescence, mold, mildew, mineral residue, and more. It can also be used in any part of the house without risking harm to people and pets because its composition rules out the possibility of toxic fumes. To prevent harsh treatment on delicate ceramic surfaces, our experts recommend using only non-abrasive tools like a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee.

Lastly, we always remind clients to open the windows and doors every day to keep the air from becoming stale. It might not seem much at a glance, but optimal ventilation does a lot to prevent the spread of mold around shower surfaces and it keeps the moisture from leaving a lasting mark on your floor and your walls.
