    @Mikey P what's that grout sealer you used on a post awhile back? I'm thinking of using bar keepers friend followed by alkaline. Any other suggestions? All the edges and corners are siliconed and that's where the mold is growing. 20171224_235711.jpg 20171224_235719.jpg 20171224_235739.jpg 20171224_235906.jpg

    Super Grout Additive is the good one to go for. Easy fix and help those grout lines sustain for long. Here some easy tips to get ahead with grout cleaning afterwards, follow steamprony.com/four-helpful-tips-to-clean-the-grout-between-tiles

    Do those professional grade steam machines do a good job cleaning shower t&g?

    I’m getting calls for it.
    I’m turning them down because mthe impression you’ve given me is it’s 8 hours with a razor blade.

    It certainly can be.


    And the next call can be cleaned with just your hydraforce gun.

    My oldest granddaughter (7 years old) came over to spend the night with me tonight. My wife commented that she wished she could live with us permanently cuz I go from grumpy to happy whenever she’s here.

    I stay grumpy if her brothers come.

    Yeah, that would work for me too.

    Especially if my grandkids were there!

    Yes, but I don’t recommend you get one. The pressure washing tools you have will do very well and are useable in conjunction with your truckmount.

    How? Nothing stays on the walls long enough to remove the mold and the grout never whitens up like the floor.

    Well, I’ve had success with bleach and detergent, Barkeeper’s friend for lime deposits and Venom peroxibright. There are liquid oven cleaners which are not lye based and cut crud really well.

    In general, I’d suggest spritzing the wall from down to up, then lathering it up with a soft brush. Rinse with your Gekko or whatever you have, then if there are any discolored spots, spritz bleach to lighten them.

    I just can’t see laying out a few thousand for vapor steam equipment when you already have heat and pressure.

    I would be glad to loan you mine if you want to mess with one, though.
