A homeowner in Tacoma didn't know what to do about the soiled shower in her master bathroom. She was happy with the light color of the tiles, but the lighter color meant there was no hiding the marks left around the shower when regular cleaners failed to remove the dirt on the grout. Mold and soap scum adhered to the horizontal joints, spreading to the grout lines on the floor and the walls.

Shower Before and After a Service from Our Tile and Grout Cleaners in Tacoma
She found Sir Grout South Sound by pure coincidence while looking for cleaning tips online, and the first impression was enough to pique her interest. After looking at some of the jobs in our picture gallery, the homeowner knew that she couldn't miss the opportunity, so she got in touch with our tile and grout cleaners in Tacoma to request an in-home evaluation.

She scheduled a free assessment, and our techs arrived at her house the next day. They immediately saw the issue and understood her frustration. In addition to the unsightly appearance, some sections of the grout had begun to loosen, allowing even more water to get between the tiles. The techs told her this would eventually lead to extensive damage but that she'd caught it in time. They assured her they could restore her shower to like-new condition.

Happy with their assessment, the client scheduled a date for them to get the job done. Our technicians returned to the client's home on the scheduled date, ready to work.

First, they soaked the shower walls and floor with a surface-safe cleaner. Our techs worked on the stains as the product loosened the mold, ensuring nothing was left behind.

One of the techs explained that the powerful cleaning formula is the most reliable solution to deal with common stains because it acts quickly and helps eliminate dirt more efficiently without damaging surfaces.

When they finished the first part of the process, our techs steam-cleaned the shower area before starting the repairs. They removed the old caulk and installed our epoxy grout to fill the gaps.

They told the client the epoxy mix increases the durability of grout surfaces because it doesn't have the weaknesses common to cement-based grout.

To complete the job, our techs applied ColorSeal to the grout lines on the walls, protecting their porous surface from water, mold, mildew, efflorescence, and other substances. The client wanted her grout to match the color of the tiles, which we were able to accomplish. As a result, the grout lines blended perfectly with the shower's ceramic surface, making the shower look clean and new again.

After checking that everything was in order, our techs called the client back into the bathroom to see the results. She was thrilled and immediately called the rest of her family to see the shower. Everybody in the family was pleased with the job. The client said she would happily recommend Sir Grout to anyone needing tile and grout services.

While one tech was putting away equipment, the other took the opportunity to share some additional cleaning pointers with the client. To optimize routine cleaning, our tech told her to try pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner.

He explained that Sir Grout's product has no harsh ingredients, unlike most brands you see at the store, so there is no chance of discoloration or grout damage. More importantly, its cleaning power is enough to remove the worst stains without using other products. The client asked about the best tools to use with our cleaner. Our tech explained that surfaces are vulnerable to scratches, so he recommended using a towel, a terry cloth, or a squeegee to wipe out the soap scum that gets stuck on shower walls.

Our techs also addressed the effects of moisture buildup, telling the client that damp surfaces can accelerate the spread of mold and mildew. That's why it took only a few months for the mold to reach all the shower seams. The tech advised that wiping all the leftover liquid inside your shower is the best way to prevent this problem. Proper indoor ventilation is also important, so our experts reminded the client to open the windows and doors for at least a few hours daily.
