Need help- frameless shower, re-appearing mildew issue

A few months ago a customer contacted us about a mildew issue under the silicone on their frameless shower.  The shower was older; probably installed in the 1990s. 

My technicians went out, disassembled the shower, cleaned the glass and tile with a clorox cleaner.  They said they ate lunch after cleaning to allow time for the cleaner to dry up.  They put it all back together using a mildew-resistant silicone from CR Laurence and told the customers not to use the shower or get the silicone wet for at least 24 hours.
