Our Stone Cleaning Service is Exactly What This Shower in Tucson, AZ Needed to Recover Its Appeal
July 28, 2023While looking at her master shower, a homeowner from Tucson, AZ realized the shower's surfaces were dirtier than they used to be. Grime and soap scum had made a mess out of the once beautiful slate floor and the surrounding walls were covered with water stains. After having a brief discussion with her husband, they decided the shower needed a thorough cleaning.
The couple worked full time, so they agreed it was best to leave the job in the hands of hard surface restoration experts. They went online and searched for reputable stone cleaning services in Tucson, AZ. Shortly after, they found our website. After reading several reviews and watching some of the video testimonials from pleased customers, they called to schedule a free in-home evaluation.
On the agreed date, our experts visited the couple's home to inspect the shower and offer the best possible solution to the problem at hand. During the inspection, they noticed the shower's walls were heavily discolored by water stains. The stains reached all the way down to the floor. The grout lines on the walls were in good shape, but the grout on the floor was in poor condition. Both grime and soap scum had accumulated over the tiles and grout lines on the shower floor and gave it an unappealing appearance.
Concerned about potential leaks, our techs tested the state of the grout. After placing several drops of water on the grout lines, our techs learned the water slowly seeped into seeped into them. Fortunately, this only meant the grout's sealant had worn off. Had it been left unattended, the integrity of the surface could've been compromised.
After the assessment, our hard surface restoration professionals offered the couple a thorough stone cleaning service to get the shower's surfaces back in shape. They also offered to enhance the floor with our proprietary sealant, Stone Armor. The homeowners agreed to the service and scheduled another appointment to get the job done.
On the day of the job, our team went back to the customer's home ready to perform the service. They started with a deep cleaning of the tiles and grout lines using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This cleaner is safe for both grout and natural stone. It also contains sanitizing properties that reduce the number of bacteria on any surface for up to 24 hours after it has been applied. Our experts also used a steam cleaner on the spots that proved more difficult to clean, like the area that surrounded the drain. Our crew finished the job by applying our flagship Stone Armor to protect the tiles and grout lines on the shower floor. This impregnating sealant makes it so the surface is resistant to stains, water, soap, mold, mildew, and other external agents.
After the job was finished, our specialists let the homeowners see the results. They were happy to see the appearance of their shower had drastically changed. It now looked fantastic. The clients thanked our team and told them they would definitely recommend our services and would call back for maintenance.
Prior to leaving, our techs gave the clients some tips to ensure their shower remained in top condition. First, they advised the homeowners to clean the shower at least once a week using a pH-neutral stone-safe cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This cleaner contains all the necessary elements to preserve any hard surface. Additionally, this cleaner's ingredients will provide the shower floor with an extra layer of protection against harmful microorganisms. Second, our experts suggested drying the shower's surfaces with a dry cloth after every shower and cleaning session to remove excess moisture. This will help prevent water damage and mold growth. Third, our team recommended keeping an eye on the grout lines to have them re-sealed when necessary. To do this, the homeowners should place a few drops of water on the grout. If the water seeps in, the grout must be re-sealed.
