It's hard to appreciate the beauty of your bathroom spaces when cleaning your shower tiles is a constant struggle. For a homeowner in Wilmington, routine cleaning had turned ten times more stressful as efflorescence covered more and more of her shower walls. A large portion of the wall was completely hidden under a large white stain, and that only drew more attention to the bits of mold that were embedded on the grout.

After years of sticking to the same products, the homeowner wanted to upgrade her cleaning routine but she didn't know where to start. She decided that the best option was to get assistance from a tile cleaning service in Wilmington, so she started looking for companies online and came across Sir Grout of New Castle County almost right away.

Our website made a great first impression, but the homeowner took her time browsing our content, just to be safe. From her reading, she could tell that our techs were true professionals and this was further confirmed once she reached our picture gallery. Filling our online form only took a few minutes, and our techs didn't keep her waiting after she reached out to them.

They went to her house a couple of days later, as per her request. The homeowner welcomed them into her home right away before taking them to the master bathroom. Once in there, our techs checked every grout line separately and tried their cleaner on one of the stains on the walls. After confirming that there was no sealant on the grout, they explained that soap and hard water are known for seeping into the grout pores and behind the tiles. Traditional cleaners are unfortunately not helpful to deal with this issue, since they also have enough soap to keep the dirt trapped on top of the grout.

The solution was to deep clean the shower, regrout the seams, and seal the grout on the walls. Our crew described Sir Grout's restoration process for the client and answered all her questions in between. By the end of their explanation, she didn't have to think twice to request a new appointment.

On the agreed-upon date, our specialists returned to her house with the necessary equipment. They quickly prepared the shower area and soaked every surface with a permeating cleaner. After letting the product sit for a few minutes, our techs removed all the embedded dirt, including the large stains on the walls. They also used a 275-degree vapor cleaner to eliminate all traces of mold from harder-to-reach surfaces.

The next step was replacing the grout on the seams. Our experts carefully detached the loose caulk and installed water-resistant epoxy grout until they circled the bathtub. They repeated the process on the vertical joints at the corner. To seal the grout on the walls, our crew applied Sir Grout's flagship ColorSeal on each grout line, gradually restoring the grout to its natural white color. When it comes to grout protection, our sealant has no match because it keeps the surface looking as good as new while warding off water, soap, mold, mildew, and more.

The homeowner was amazed by the shower's new look. The ceramic tiles looked gorgeous and there were no stains left on the grout. She thanked our specialists for their hard work and promised to recommend our services to all the people she knew in Wilmington.

The restoration was complete, and our techs only had one thing left to do. They ended the appointment with a series of tips that would help the client with her cleaning routine in the future. Here's what they had to say: The majority of traditional cleaners are unsuccessful at keeping dirt from spreading around shower surfaces. That's why pH-neutral formulas like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are by far the best choice. Our product reduces all the effort that goes into shower cleaning by removing efflorescence, mold, mildew, and other stains in little time, without needing any chemical-based cleaners to enhance its effectiveness. Its composition also ensures that no toxic residue is released into your bathroom surfaces, so there's less risk for people and pets. Our second recommendation is to avoid using abrasive tools that could scratch the tiles when scrubbing too hard. You'll get more precision while using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee.

The right cleaning habits will get you far, but the right environment will save you a lot of effort in the process. That's why we always recommend looking into the room's ventilation to check that there's constant circulation of fresh air. This is extra important when it comes to bathroom surfaces, where the effects of moisture buildup are much more likely to damage your hard surfaces.
