Why is it Important to Seal your Grout Using a Solvent Based Penetrating Sealer and How to Do it Yourself?
You invest in costly tile for your floor, shower and countertop to enhance the look of your interiors. But...
Tile, grout and shower restoration products are often misused and hence you do not get the best results. While some products are not as efficient as they claim to be, there are some which are great but do not provide proper instructions. If you are hiring professional services for your tile, grout, and shower restoration, then you need not worry as the experts know how to use them, but if you are planning a DIY, then a brief about their usage can prevent you from wastage and will also help you get desirable results. Here is a detailed guide on how to use the tile, grout and shower restoration products from one of the leading restoration products manufacturing company – pFOkUS.
When you plan to perform a Do-It-Yourself shower restoration procedure, you need first to note the different areas which will need deep cleaning, repair and sealing:
People generally install natural stone like slate, travertine, marble, etc for their flooring and walls or non-natural stone such as ceramic and porcelain. While artificial stone poses no threat of mold, natural stone does. It is porous and tends to absorb water and moisture inside its pores, which further leads to mold breeding. Mold not only ruins the aesthetics of your flooring but also poses a health hazard. If you have used acidic cleaners in the past for mold removal, you might have etching marks on your surface.
Moreover, soap scum and hard water stains further ruin the look of your flooring and walls. You need to use a deep-penetrating tile cleaner that can knock off the hidden and superficial germs and dirt from your flooring and render it completely sanitized. You might chipped or cracked tile in your flooring and walls too. These can be repaired by adhesives and fillers. The tile then needs to be sealed to prevent further damage.
Your glass surfaces such as shower glass doors and glass shelves also get attacked by soap scum, etching and hard water stains. These need to be cleaned with high-quality cleaners, which remove the stains without ruining the integrity of your glass. Not only cleaning, glass restoration includes sealing the glass surfaces to prevent re-staining.
Grout is also porous and provides an excellent breeding ground for mold and mildew after absorbing water. This grout should be cleaned by deep-penetrating cleaners that can eliminate the hidden mold and germs at the root-level so that you do not face grout discolouration or staining issues. Not only grout cleaning issues, grout restoration also includes repair cracked or missing grout and then sealing it further to prevent re-staining.
So, once you have jotted down the areas in your shower that need deep cleaning and restoration, you can get to work with high-quality restoration product range from pFOkUS.
