This Old Fort Myers Floor Looks Better Than New After a Grout Sealing in Florida
July 20, 2017Many homeowners neglect home repairs for many years, mostly because they lack time or money. This couple spent a long time (28 years!) doing only the bare minimum maintenance on their floors, but the time had inevitably come to give their kitchen a new look. The floor looked sticky, and the grout was dirty—after all, the kitchen was the place where this family spent most of their time and heavy foot traffic had taken its toll. The owners were willing to have the job done by a quality company, so they started their search for grout sealing services in Fort Myers.
The owners went on the Internet, and came across our website, where they noticed that we offer many services for hard surfaces. They also read our blog posts about the hard surface renovations we have done and the testimonials of satisfied clients, which provided them with the trust they needed to put this job in our hands. Knowing that we offer the highest quality services at a fair price, they quickly and easily booked an appointment for an in-home estimate with our online form, and the day for the visit was set.
The in-home consultation is one of the most important steps. It allows the client to show us exactly what they want to fix and how they want it done, which guarantees their satisfaction. When the experts first saw the floor we corroborated that it needed a professional cleaning and grout sealing service. It had been cleaned with the wrong products for many years, specifically pine oil cleaners. There was a residual sticky film that was attracting more dirt than usual, making the floor look old and dirty. This is an example of how clients usually do not know how much damage they can be doing to their hard surfaces by using or abusing common household cleaners or DIY methods. This type of problem is normal after many years of continued use without any professional cleaning services, but we had the solution.
We started the process with a deep cleaning, since the sanded grout on this floor had absorbed a large amount of grime over the years, and it was also stained. The action of a high-speed scrubbing machine and a pH-neutral cleaner removed all the grime on the tiles and the grout. The use of a vapor steam cleaner was also needed where there was stubborn grime. Next, we applied ColorSeal, our very own grout sealant. It has many advantages: it evens out the color of the grout, makes it resistant to spills, stains, dirt, mold and mildew, and it protects it from water infiltration. To finish off the process, Tile Armor shielded the tile floor with a coating that prevents stains and makes the surface easy to clean. It is important to say that both ColorSeal and Tile Armor are non-toxic, so they are safe for pets, and for families.
We strive for excellence in all our services and make sure we provide our clients with the knowledge they need to keep their hard surfaces impeccable for a long time. Some tips for floor and grout care that we provided our client with were mostly directed at the correct choice of cleaning products (non-acidic), and the prompt cleaning of spills or stains. All in all, our clients were happy to see that their kitchen had a refreshed look just by improving the condition of the floor, and thanked our team for their professional work and helpfulness.
