Our Grout Cleaning Professionals Bring Life To This Home's Floor in Bonita Springs
April 22, 2022Cleaning our home's surfaces is one of the most time-consuming household chores. As a result, most people disregard it. Leaving the floors unclean for an extended period of time can lead to serious problems. While most materials can endure the wear and tear that everyday foot traffic can cause, grout is not one of them. The porous grout lines between the tiles can absorb fluids as well as other external agents such as dirt and dust. This not only ruins the appearance of grout lines, but it also jeopardizes the structural integrity of tiled surfaces.
A resident from Bonita Springs, FL, couldn't spare much time to properly clean his home's floor. He tried to clean the grout, hoping it would look better. He tried some DIY methods and over-the-counter products, but nothing worked. Annoyed, he decided that searching for expert assistance was the way to go. He searched online for Bonita Springs Grout Cleaning and discovered our website among the first results. After he read all of the positive feedback we had received, he filled out our form to get a free in-home consultation.
On the scheduled day, we arrived at the client's home to evaluate the surface. We were able to identify the problems at first sight. The grout lines were completely filthy, mold and mildew had found their way into them. These problems arose not just as a result of a lack of routine maintenance, but also as a result of the constant wear and tear that these tiles were subjected to.
We talked about the consequences of leaving the surface in such a state. We informed the homeowner that his surface faced a difficult situation. Damaged grout lines are very likely to cause structural damage. Concerned about the condition of his floor, the client asked if there was anything we could do to help remedy the issue.
We informed him that taking preventative measures was the best way to keep the floors in good shape. A multi-step grout cleaning service, utilizing our own chemicals, was offered to the homeowner. He accepted our offer since he was relieved that the matter had a solution.
The next day, we returned to the customer's residence to get the service done. We cleaned the floor using our tile and grout cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to remove the grime from the tiles and grout lines. Mold-removal and mold-prevention solutions are included in our product. We also used a steam cleaner to make sure the mold and mildew were completely gone. We then scraped away the broken caulk and refilled it with our own epoxy grout.
The following step was to apply a sealant to the entire surface. The grout lines on the entire floor were sealed with ColorSeal. This acrylic-based sealant covers the pores of the grout, preventing it from absorbing harmful impurities from the outside.
The entire surface looked pristine after we were done. The filthy grout lines were gone, and the floor was now in optimal conditions. We showed the results to the owner, and he was really impressed by our work. After thanking us, he said he would tell his family about Sir Grout SW Florida.
While our ColorSeal and its variations are designed to last a long time, frequent maintenance of your home's surfaces is still advised to achieve the best results. Before leaving the owner's home, we gave him some advice. To begin, we advised avoiding DIY cleaning methods and store-bought products. These cleaners mostly include harmful chemicals that can accelerate the deterioration of tile and grout. We recommended that the customer clean the floors once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Furthermore, we recommend cleaning away liquids or spills as soon as they touch the floor to avoid mold formation.
