Our Team of Tile and Grout Cleaners Successfully Restored a Tiled Floor in Fort Myers, FL
November 30, 2019Dirt builds up over time, dulling the appearance of tiles and discoloring grout. Even regular mopping can fail to remove the soil that has penetrated deep into the grout's pores. In their desperation, many homeowners end up using improper cleaning methods that only cause further damage to the tiles and grout lines.
A couple in Fort Myers, FL had a similar problem. Their once clean tiled floor had been overcome by dirty-looking grout lines. When they tried different cleaning products and homemade recipes that had been recommended to them, they noticed the fixtures initially looked cleaner, but they quickly returned to poor condition.
Seeing they had no success using these products, the couple went online to search for advice. They came across a local website where users detailed similar experiences to theirs. In most cases, the issues had been caused by improper maintenance. That's when the homeowners realized there was nothing they could do. They needed the help of professional tile and grout cleaners in Fort Myers, FL. Luckily, it only took the couple a quick online search to find our website. After reading some of the testimonials and how pleased other customers were with the quality of our services, they decided to call for a free consultation.
Our team of experts arrived at the customer's residence on the appointed day to assess the floor. Upon walking in, they noticed the dirty grout lines completely changed the appearance of the surface. The grout had a dark hue that made the white tiles appear darker. When our specialists asked the customers about their cleaning routine, the homeowners told them about the methods they had tried using to clean the floor's grout. Unfortunately, the homeowners had used questionable methods to remove the dirt, including cleaners that do nothing but cause more damage over time.
Despite having a dingy look, the damage on the grout lines was not severe and the floor's integrity was not compromised. Our crew offered the couple a grout cleaning and sealing service to fully restore the floor's grout. The homeowners agreed to the offer and scheduled another appointment to have the job done.
On the day of the job, our team began the restoration as soon as they arrived at the customer's home. They started by using Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner along with a high-speed scrubber to remove all the dirt that had accumulated on the grout lines. This cleaner also contains properties that can help decrease the number of bacteria for an extended period of time after application. Some of the grout lines needed more in-depth cleaning, so our experts used a steam cleaner to completely remove the grime. Once that had been taken care of, our techs finished the job by applying ColorSeal to the grout lines. This is an acrylic-based sealant that protects grout against dirt, stains, spills, mold, mildew, and many other external agents. It also comes in a variety of colors. The clients chose white to match the color of the tiles.
After they finished the job, our experts showed the homeowners the results. They were amazed and content with their bright-looking bathroom floor. They also assured our team they had made the right choice by calling Sir Grout SW Florida to get the job done.
To ensure the bathroom floor remained in top condition, our experts gave the customers some maintenance tips. First, they recommended cleaning the surface at least once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner that's safe for both tile and grout like our proprietary cleaner. It also prolongs the lifespan of ColorSeal. They also suggested wiping the excess moisture away from the floor after every cleaning session to avoid dirt accumulation. To finish, they advised them to check on their sealant every few months to ensure it is working. To do this, the homeowners should place a few drops of water on the grout. If it seeps in, the grout must be resealed.
