A homeowner in West Bloomfield Township was starting to get frustrated with the amount of dirt on his shower joints. When he found the first few stains, the homeowner had been confident in his ability to work through the problem during his chores. Unfortunately, mold and soap scum clung onto the grout despite long cleaning sessions, and he even found new stains along the way.

Tile Shower Before and After a Grout Cleaning in West Bloomfield Township
The homeowner didn't want to spend months dealing with the same issue, so he'd considered the option of a grout cleaning service in West Bloomfield Township not long after his first failed attempt to clean the grout. A few days of no progress helped him make up his mind about it, so he started looking for local restoration companies online.

Luckily, the homeowner came across the perfect solution almost immediately. He found Sir Grout Macomb at the top of his search results and was impressed by our website's content as soon as he started browsing. After reading about our services and checking picture gallery, the homeowner gave us a call to schedule an appointment with one of our agents.

Following his request, our specialists went to his house the very next day for an in-home evaluation. They inspected every inch of the shower and checked the grout. As the client had explained during his phone call, most of the embedded dirt was located on the grout. The ceramic on the walls and the tub had mild traces of soap scum, but the homeowner had been careful about wiping any errant stains. The problem was that mold and water had seeped into the grout as chemical cleaners kept weakening the porous surface.

When the client asked about it, our techs explained that soap-based cleaners are more likely to get the dirt stuck on the grout pores because they create a foamy film that makes cleaning an uphill battle for homeowners, especially on bathroom surfaces. The homeowner didn't expect this from products he'd used for months, but the grout hadn't suffered any lasting damage and our crew had the solution to restore its good looks. They explained Sir Grout's methods to the homeowner and agreed to return in a couple of days when he scheduled a new appointment to have his shower restored.

During their second visit, our experts brought all the necessary equipment and got to work right away. First, they removed the stains after soaking all shower surfaces with a powerful cleaning formula. Once our permeating cleaner seeped into the surface, removing mold and soap scum was no hardship. To complete this part of the process, our techs steam cleaned the shower stall with a 275-degree vapor streamer, helping the protection of harder-to-reach surfaces.

Next, they made the necessary repairs to the corner joints. Cement-based grout is prone to absorbing too many external elements due to its porous surface. With this in mind, our specialists installed epoxy grout on the wall seams and around the tub to avoid structural damage later down the line. The process was complete once they applied ColorSeal to the grout lines on the walls, ensuring that no dirt or soap residue would stain the surface. Thankfully, our sealant is available in multiple colors so it was easy to recolor the grout to match the white ceramic on the tub.

When everything was ready, our techs called the client back into the room to see the result. He loved the shower's new look and was particularly impressed by the grout's transformation. After thanking our specialists for doing an excellent restoration job, he promised to spread the word about our grout cleaning services.

Our specialists had some additional tips to share before the end of the appointment. As they told the client, pH-neutral cleaners are the most effective way to keep a shower from collecting new stains all the time. Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner is a prime example, with unmatched power to remove soap scum, mold, and mildew quickly and efficiently. Our product also helps homeowners keep a safer environment because it won't contaminate bathroom surfaces with toxic fumes and it doesn't subject hard surfaces to harsh chemicals. Homeowners can get the desired results in the most challenging parts of their home, especially when they pair pH-neutral cleaners with non-abrasive tools like a towel or a terry cloth.

Lastly, we recommend opening the windows and doors to keep the air circulating in different parts of the house. There's no avoiding moisture on your shower surfaces, so good indoor ventilation is essential to keep a clean shower for much longer and your best chance to stop the spread of mold.

On top of preserving your bathroom's hygiene, a thorough grout cleaning service works wonders for your peace of mind.
