Grout Recoloring Spruces Up Fort Myers Rental Property
October 22, 2015Laura N. had much to celebrate -- the recent purchase of a new home had her on cloud nine! Owning one home is a large part of the American Dream. Owning two homes -- her old one as well as her recently purchased one -- well, that is even better! After some deliberation, Laura decided not to sell her old home, but instead, to rent it out. The appeal of living in sunny Florida and the excellent location in beautiful Fort Myers made her old home an ideal candidate to serve as an excellent rental property. However, in order to make her home tenant-ready, Laura had some work to do. Primarily, her concern was with her old shower -- the years of mildew, moisture, and dirt took its toll on the light-colored tile surface, discoloring the tile and damaging the grout lines.
Laura was worried that the condition of the shower may turn off potential renters. She tried a few household cleaning chemicals, but they seemed to do very little to mitigate the years of damage. After a few futile attempts to clean the years of damage off her shower, Laura decided to enlist the help of professionals. She searched for Fort Myers grout recoloring, and found Sir Grout of Southwest Florida. Sir Grout of Southwest Florida was a one-stop-shop for Laura. Not only did Sir Grout have the expertise and the equipment to thoroughly clean her shower, Sir Grout could also seal and recolor her damaged grout. Laura did her due diligence -- the years of experience and excellent feedback from previous clients made Sir Grout an obvious choice for Laura.
Southwest Florida is a tropical paradise – a great place to vacation and an even better place to live. However, the climate and weather does exponentially more damage to surfaces than it would in drier, cooler climates. Florida's humidity and salty air is punishing to any porous surface, especially grout. Florida's heat, especially in the summers, puts showers to extra use. The compounded punishment from high heat, humidity, and multiple daily showers can damage even the toughest of tiles and grout. Laura wanted a solution that was not only going to make her shower look clean, new and ready for a new tenant, but was also going to be a long-lasting, durable solution for her grout and tile in case the new tenants do not bother taking care of the shower tiles and grout the way she did. Sir Grout of Southwest Florida was ready to help!
Upon arriving at Laura's rental property, Sir Grout's trained grout recoloring team assessed the scope of the job, and settled on a thorough cleaning for the tiles, and grout recoloring for the faded grout lines using ColorSeal. ColorSeal is a tinted sealer. It both eliminates and fills the pores that trap dirt within grout lines, creating a clean, fresh, water-resistant layer that protects grout while giving an appearance of new grout. Sir Grout considers ColorSeal one of the best sealers on the market, and uses it on jobs of any size and scope.
The final result was a clean, new-looking shower with fresh, light-colored grout lines. Laura N. was extremely happy with the result -- the new shower was ready for new tenants, and years of use!
