Amazing Results for This Tub Shower in Tarrytown, NY Thanks to Our Caulking Services
July 15, 2022There are different reasons that cause mold to grow in houses, offices, and other places, but the main cause of mold growth is moisture. Where there is moisture, there are high possibilities that sooner or later there is going to be mold. That's why it is so common for homeowners to have this kind of problem in bathrooms, especially in showers.
Our next customer found it very difficult to regularly clean his beautiful home. He is a retiree who had always been worried about the maintenance of his house. As time went on, his cleaning sessions were not frequent. This led to some deterioration, particularly in the tub shower. Fortunately, his son helped him find the best caulking services in Tarrytown, NY.
By the time the homeowner realized there was mold on the walls of the tub shower, it seemed that it was too late. One day, his son was in town to visit him. He told him about the black stains on the shower and asked if something could be done to remove them. His son promised that since he was staying for a few more days, he would try to solve the problem by himself.
The young man bought different products to use during the cleanup session, but nothing seemed to work. The black mold still remained on the grout and the joints. He tried fixing the problem every day but the problem persisted in spite of what cleaner or method he used. Determined to fix the situation, he went online and that's when he found Sir Grout Westchester.
He searched online, and Sir Grout Westchester was there among the first results. While browsing our website, he could see how our technicians restored different types of surfaces, achieving spectacular results. He was convinced by our before and after picture gallery, and so he filled out the "Request a Quote" form right away to schedule an in-home consultation.
On the day of the evaluation, our team arrived at the client's home to assess the surface. During the examination, they noticed the accumulated dirt on the walls and that the grout lines were plagued with mold. The old caulk in the seams had shrunk, cracked, and had become infested with black mold. Our experts told the homeowner that our multistep caulking procedure would leave the tub shower looking brand-new. The customer accepted the offer and scheduled another date for the procedure.
On the day of the job, our technicians went to the house to get the job done. They started the process by cleaning the entire shower using our own pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner, and a high-speed scrubber to remove the dirt from the surface. Our techs completely restored the grout and caulk and made sure all the mold was removed as well.
To finish the process, our specialist sealed the grout lines on the walls using Sir Grout's ColorSeal, our non-toxic sealer that helps inhibit the growth of mold and mildew while protecting the grout from stains.
When the job was finished, our team invited the homeowner to look at the outcome. He was thrilled with the appearance of his renovated tub shower. The black mold stains were totally gone. The homeowner thanked our expert for the quality work and said that he would recommend the company to anyone needing this kind of service.
Before leaving, we gave the owner some suggestions in order to properly maintain the shower. First, we recommended drying the surface after using the shower. Second, we suggested using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to get the best results instead of soap-based cleaners.
Soap-based cleaners and products with acidic properties are not recommended. These solutions leave a foam behind that seeps into the grout, causing stains and discoloration. Chemicals and abrasive compounds can have a negative impact on the surface as well. Use a clean mop to apply the cleaning solution, and make sure the floor is thoroughly dry before entering the room again. Abrasive tools should never be used since they can scratch the tiles.
