A Floor in Utica Got an Impressive Makeover from Our Grout Sealing Crew
November 16, 2023It's hard to make any room look good when the floors are soiled. Food traffic can easily take things out of control if you're already dealing with dirt embedded in the grout, to the point that you can no longer keep tabs on the stains that appear every day. A homeowner in Utica had been dealing with a similar problem for weeks. The ceramic floors in her living room area lacked half the charm they used to have, and she was losing hope of ever getting rid of the stains.
At some point, she realized that her cleaning products stopped working on the grime that got stuck between the tiles and the problem spread to all parts of the floor as time went on. Dark stains concealed any shine that the homeowner managed to get out of the tiles, while the grout took different shades of brown as more dirt seeped into its porous surface. Hoping to make a breakthrough, the homeowner contacted our Utica grout sealing techs.
She'd found Sir Grout Macomb about half a month after she started having problems with her grout cleaning routine. From our website's content, the homeowner figured that the grout's sealant had worn off, so she wanted to get confirmation from our specialists. It took no time for her to schedule an appointment for a free in-home evaluation, and our techs didn't keep her waiting.
They were at her doorstep just two days after she contacted Sir Grout Macomb, all ready to evaluate her living room floor. Their inspection confirmed the homeowner's suspicion: there was no sealant on the grout, and the surface had absorbed a combination of dust specs, grime, spill residue, and soil. The ceramic tiles had been similarly affected, as shown by the dark film of dirt tracing the tiles' pattern. Our techs explained that traditional cleaners, don't work on these stains, because their chemical properties only trap external elements on the surface without actually protecting the pores. In such conditions, it's expected to get many stains within a short span of time, especially when it comes to the most active parts of a home. At the end of their evaluation, our techs offered to clean and seal the floor with Sir Grout's high-end equipment. The homeowner knew this was the surest way to protect her floor in the long run, so she happily scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.
A few days later, our techs returned to her house in Utica. This time, they had all the necessary equipment to fully revamp the living room floor. They started by soaking the surface with a pH-neutral cleaner, giving our product a few minutes to act on the floors. As the dirt got loose, our crew used a high-speed scrubber to remove every stain, putting all their care into the task to ensure that nothing was left behind. Our neutral product represents the ultimate solution to simplify grout maintenance because it removes common household stains without prompting discoloration or other side effects.
For the next step, our techs began sealing the grout. They applied our powerful ColorSeal on all the grout lines, using a light beige color to match the shade of the ceramic tiles. This unique sealant provides the best protection to prevent deep staining on the grout. It wards off water and other liquids, as well as mold, mildew, grime, and other external elements. It's the most practical solution to keep your grout spotless and in perfect condition for a long time.
Our techs buffed the floor before calling the client back into the room. As expected, she was delighted by the result. Our cleaning had enhanced the details on the ceramic surface and the restored grout made the floor look better than ever before. The homeowner thanked our specialists for doing such amazing work and promised to recommend our services the next time she had people over.
Before leaving the client's house, our techs shared some additional cleaning tips. They recommended replacing generic cleaners with pH-neutral formulas like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product guarantees a vast improvement that no other cleaner on the market can match. It removes stains quickly while bringing out the tiles' natural beauty, and it works without weakening the sealant's protection on the grout.
Our specialists also had recommendations to keep dirt at bay. A pointer was to use non-abrasive tools like a mop or a towel to wipe out spills, food residue, oil, mud, etc. Keeping these tools clean is also important to avoid collecting dirt on the grout and other narrow surfaces. Lastly, our techs suggested placing a doormat at the room's entrance to avoid soiling the floors too much whenever people come inside from outdoors.
