Grout Recoloring Renews Stone Tile Floor in Naples, Florida
January 20, 2016Naples, Florida is a dream destination for many. Whether living on the Gulf Coast of sunny, warm Southwest Florida, or simply stopping by for a tropical vacation, Naples is truly the place to be. The beautiful white sand beaches, the turquoise water of the gulf, and the friendly tranquility can attract anyone who loves the beach and warm weather. These homeowners heeded the call of the warm, tropical climate in 1980, buying a home in the Naples area, and moving down to live there. For three and a half decades, their Naples house was home to three children, two dogs, and a cat. The stone tile floor stood up to years of foot and paw traffic, as well as the salty, humid, unforgiving air of Southwest Florida.
As time went on, however, the stone tile floor started showing signs of aging. It was as if someone put a film on the tiles -- the color just wasn't as sharp and bright as it used to be. While the stone tiles themselves were turning dull, the grout lines were in even worse shape -- the once light-colored grout lines slowly dried out and turned to a brownish, inconsistent hue. The homeowners spent years thoroughly cleaning their floors with various cleaning products and agents, but as the years went on, it felt as if they were fighting a losing battle. After a recommendation from a neighbor, the homeowners settled on a professional steam cleaning and grout recoloring as the next step in undoing the years of damage to their stone tile floor. They searched for Naples grout recoloring to find professional experts who had the expertise to clean and recolor the grout of their stone tile floors. They quickly found Sir Grout SW Florida. Prior to committing, the homeowners researched Sir Grout thoroughly, and quickly learned of their vast experience and excellent feedback clients have left over years of Sir Grout's excellent service. Not hesitating any further, they called Sir Grout of Southwest Florida and explained their issue.
Although over the counter cleaning products can do wonders for dirt and mildew on surfaces, harsh, abrasive, acidic cleaning products do little to clean grout, and some may even damage it further. As time passes, moisture and dirt get into the microscopic pores of aging grout, discoloring and fading the grout. These Naples homeowners made the right call by contacting Sir Grout of Southwest Florida. Even the best over the counter cleaning products are no match for a professional steam cleaning and grout recoloring performed by experts.
Upon arriving at the Naples residence, Sir Grout's trained team analyzed the scope of the grout recoloring job and took several pre-treatment photos of the stone tile floors. Before beginning the grout recoloring process, the team steam-cleaned the kitchen floor utilizing a proprietary method that combines both alkaline and neutral cleaning agents to help break down the years of dirt, grease, and mildew buildup without damaging the stone tiles. The result was clean, fresh tiles that looked as new as the day they were installed. The team then proceeded with grout recoloring. To recolor and seal the clean, pre-existing grout, the team turned to ColorSeal. ColorSeal is a tinted sealer that works to fill and eliminate the dirt-trapping pores found on grout, creating a water-resistant layer that protects grout while giving homeowners the look of brand new grout. The customers looked at several different colors and chose a subtle color called "Champagne".
Upon completion, the customers' stone tile floor looked very different than it did earlier in the day. The tiles were clean, fresh, and new-looking, while the freshly-applied sealant gave the grout lines a light, off-white appearance to closely match the kitchen tiles. The customers were very happy with the results, and thanked the Sir Grout team for giving their floor a cleaner look, and simpler maintenance.
