These Light Brown Tiles Now Look Different Thanks to a Grout Cleaning and Recoloring Job in Fort Myers, FL
January 12, 2017Moving into a new house represents a new beginning and new opportunities, yet it can also be a stressful experience. Usually, it takes several days to settle in and move all the furniture, organize the kitchen, and repaint the walls. Above all, when moving into an old house, home improvements must be performed. These homeowners bought a property in Fort Myers, Florida, from a foreclosure sale. Apparently, the place was built decades ago and had been sitting empty for over 5 years. They bought it at an excellent price, acknowledging that they would have to invest in repairs.
Out of all the imperfections, the kitchen needed the most improvements. The new furniture and kitchen appliances looked great; nonetheless, the dull and unattractive light brown tiles and the dirty grout ruined the entire appearance of the room. The homeowners, aware of what needed to be done, searched online for a Fort Myers grout cleaning and recoloring service that could help them solve the problem. Sir Grout SW Florida's website appeared among the first search results. They read about our services and decided to call us immediately for a free, in-home evaluation, which we scheduled for that same week.
When the day of the consultation arrived, our team of experts went to the residence to meet the clients and to inspect the kitchen. As soon as they walked in, they noticed the deteriorated floor. Years of dust and dirt together with a lack of cleaning had discolored the grout to the point where it looked almost black. Our hard surface restorers offered the couple a tile and grout cleaning plus a grout recoloring service to restore the floor and renew the aging grout. They immediately accepted.
The team begun the cleaning process the following day. They started by applying our proprietary, non-toxic cleaner for tile and grout. Then, they thoroughly cleaned the surface with a high-speed, gentle scrubber and a vapor steam cleaner; with these procedures our hard surface restoration experts managed to remove the embedded dirt from the kitchen tiles and grout. Once the cleaning process was completed, it was time to change the grout's color with our proprietary ColorSeal. The homeowner wanted a color that would suit the kitchen's light brown tiles, and out of the wide range of ColorSeal options, she chose the color Cinnamon since it matched the tiles' design. Thanks to ColorSeal, we not only recolored all the grout lines, but also made them stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant.
As a result of the whole procedure, the kitchen's appearance changed; the light brown tiles looked different thanks to the new grout color, and the place had a brighter and cleaner appearance. The Fort Myers residents were pleased with the results; now their floors looked beautiful and were easy to clean thanks to the sealing service!
Once the process was done, our team interviewed the homeowners to learn about their cleaning methods and then kindly recommended new strategies to prevent dirt from building up on their floors. They advised them to use a soapless, pH-neutral cleaner to preserve the renewed appearance of the grout. Also, they recommended them to always use a clean mop and to change mop water frequently when cleaning to achieve true cleanliness. Finally, the team of specialists advised the homeowners to always dry the floor with a clean towel or a terry cloth, instead of air drying it, to prevent dirty cleaner residue from settling into the tiles and grout lines.
