Our Specialists Conduct the Finest Memphis Stone Cleaning on Marble Shower
November 19, 2021No one can deny the beauty of marble surfaces. This is one of the reasons why marble is such a popular choice when homeowners want to make a bathroom go from average to sophisticated in one fell swoop. The catch, however, comes with the stone's porous surface and all the ways it can suffer when subjected to the water that pools in a shower, a vanity top, or a bathroom floor. A homeowner from Memphis, TN, had spent weeks trying to fight this problem on her marble shower, which had started to look dull from all the grime on its surface. The best Memphis Stone Cleaning service was the ultimate solution to bring the shower back to its former beauty.
Before reaching out to Sir Grout Memphis, the homeowner had hoped that multiple cleaning sessions would get the dirt off in the span of a few weeks. She knew how tricky it could be to stop moisture buildup on a shower, so she had expected the issue to persist longer when compared to other stone surfaces in her home.
As it turns out, the marble only looked more worn off, and the grime started taking over her grout lines until there was no way to see their natural color. When her diligent cleaning efforts bore no results, the client knew that the problem would only get worse unless she enlisted professional help. She had already heard of Sir Grout Memphis, so it took no time for her to find our website and look through our past results. At the end of her research, the homeowner gave us a call to schedule an in-home evaluation.
Our specialists were at her place that same week to look at her shower. We saw the root of the problems just minutes into the inspection. The shower's surfaces had no sealant, making way for all the water that had seeped into the grout. After checking the extent of the damage on the grout, we asked the client about the products used in her cleaning routine, and she named a few store-bought cleaners. We explained that many of these formulas have pH imbalances that make them harmful for hard surfaces, including marble tiles which are comparatively delicate against water and other fluids. The grout also needed to be repaired and sealed to stop similar issues down the line. The client was very receptive to our explanations and agreed to schedule an appointment for the shower's restoration.
We came back to the client's house just a few days later with all the necessary equipment for the job. To begin, we used a pH-neutral cleaner to loosen the soiling from the stone and the grout. Made of top-quality ingredients, our stone-safe product causes no damage to the tiles while simplifying the removal of dirt, grime, soap scum, and other shower residues. We let the cleaner sit on the floor and wall's surface for a few minutes and then used a high-speed scrubber to remove all the residue. After sanitizing the area with a vapor cleaner, we began working on the grout repairs.
For this, we removed the loose grout and fixed all the damaged areas before revamping the grout lines with Sir Grout's ColorSeal. This acrylic-based sealant keeps your grout protected against external elements and stops the gradual deterioration that comes with daily use. It is also the best option to upgrade your grout's overall look, because you can pick among a variety of colors to make the grout perfectly match your tiles. After removing the excess, we applied a coat of SilTanium to enhance the protection on the shower floor, which also results in safer cleaning practices thanks to the product's slip-resistant properties. The end result made the shower look stunning and highlighted the marble's natural shine, to the client's immense delight.
Before leaving, we shared some recommendations to make cleaning less of a chore in the future. We told the client to use only pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Most generic products have acidic properties that wind up wearing down the stone after regular use, making it more vulnerable to the effects of moisture, mold, mildew, and fungi. Sir Grout's cleaner helps inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms and preserves the sealant's protection while effectively removing all the dirt and soap scum. Other recommendations included using clean towels and squeegees instead of steel wools and other abrasive tools. To keep the bathroom surfaces dry, we suggested opening the windows a few hours every day to allow the circulation of fresh air. The client welcomed all our tips and promised to recommend our services to all the people in her circle.
