See How Our Grout Cleaning Service in Fort Myers, FL, Recovered This Dining Room's Beauty
January 23, 2018It's no secret that some rooms in a house have more foot-traffic than others. In the case of our next client, her dining room was the space with the most foot-traffic. The young woman lived in Fort Myers, FL, where she bought her house four years ago. Most of her family and friends lived very close to her, and she usually invited them over for dinner and drinks at her beautiful home. The woman was frequently hosting different get-togethers and some rooms had more foot-traffic than the rest. This is what had happened to her dining room floor and the main reason why she hired our grout cleaning services in Fort Myers, FL.
This homeowner had a busy life because of her demanding job, so she didn't have the time she would have liked to dedicate to deep clean the house, except for the weekends. On those days, since she usually invited people over, she tried to clean the house and leave it in the best condition possible before her guests arrived. She invited her family and friends over once or twice a month, but when she didn't invite them, she still tried to fulfil the cleaning routine she had set for her home in order to keep it beautiful and clean.
One weekend, the woman invited her family and friends over for dinner and while they were having a good time, her sister told her that the dining room floor looked odd. The homeowner didn't pay much attention to the comment at the moment but the following weekend, in the middle of her cleaning session, she noticed something was different about the dining room floor and remembered her sister's comment. After she finished cleaning, the woman was looking through some home decor photos online and found a floor that resembled her dinning floor when first installed, that's when she confirmed that the grout lines in her dining room were full of grime and dirt.
The homeowner knew that there was no major damage to the floor, but she wanted to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Since she had a couple of weeks free from work, she decided to spend some of that time cleaning her home.
On her first day off, she noticed that she needed to buy more cleaning products, so she went to the local grocery store and bought some to deep clean the house, including the floor, which she noticed was full of dirt.
The woman didn't have time to waste, so she started cleaning right away. On that day, she cleaned the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. She decided to leave the dining room floor for the next day. On her second day off, she knew it was time to do something about the dirt on the dining room floor and grout lines, so she started cleaning very early in the morning. When she finished, the floor didn't change at all; the tiles and grout still looked dirty. The woman thought that maybe more than one session was necessary to fix the problem. After several days trying to solve the problem, the floor was still in the same condition, so she realized that there was nothing else she could do. Professional help was the only way she could fix the problem.
The young woman started out by calling some of her family members to ask if anyone knew a high-quality and reliable company that provided tile and grout cleaning services. Her sister told her that she had a similar problem months before, and she had hired Sir Grout SW Florida. The sister assured her that the results were incredible. The homeowner, trusting her sister's judgment, searched for our website. She noticed that we were among the top search results. She reviewed some pictures of our previous work and read some testimonials from satisfied clients, she was then convinced that we were the best choice to solve the issue. She called to schedule an in-home evaluation, for free.
On the day of the appointment, our team of professionals arrived at the woman's house to see what the problem was and offer the best solution possible. The owner invited the experts to see the dining room, and after a quick look they identified the problem. The team asked the woman about her cleaning routine. She told them that she usually cleaned on the weekends and also told them about the products and techniques she used.
Our technicians listened carefully to the homeowner's explanation and determined what they needed to do to restore the surface. They told her that they needed to perform a tile and grout cleaning service. Moreover, they proposed that the grout lines needed to be sealed to prevent future damage. The homeowner agreed and scheduled a new date to get the job done.
Many homeowners do not know that if tile surfaces are not properly maintained, they can damage. Using the incorrect cleaning products and methods can lead your tiles to crack, scratch and accumulate dirt. On the other hand, grout is crucial when installing tile surfaces, but because of its porosity it is vulnerable to liquids, which can seep into the floor, causing problems such as mold and mildew growth, and dirty, stained or crumbling grout lines.
A few days later, our team of experts returned to the house to start the job. They began the process by applying a neutral cleaner and using a high-speed scrubber to deep clean the floor. Once the surface was clean, it was time to seal the grout lines. To do so, our specialists told the homeowner they would use our exclusive product, ColorSeal. They explained that this product protects grout against moisture, mold, and mildew. Furthermore, it comes in a wide variety of colors to choose from. The owner chose an oak color to match with the tiles of the dining room.
The job was done, so our technicians invited the woman to see the final result. She was thrilled with the outcome. The floor and grout lines looked beautiful and clean. She took some photos to show them to her sister who recommended our company and she thanked us for the incredible grout cleaning service. She even mentioned that she would recommend us to anyone who had similar issues with hard surfaces.
Before leaving, our team gave some recommendations to maintaining the floor. They suggested to always use pH-neutral, soap-less cleaners to keep from damaging the floor. They also told her to dry it with a towel or a terry cloth after each use. By doing this, she could maintain the beautiful look of the floor for many years to come.
