See How a Complete Grout Cleaning Service Helped This Home in Sugar Land, TX, Recover Its Former Glow
December 06, 2016
This homeowner had been living in his family's residence in Sugar land, Texas, for fifteen years now. He loved the city's humid summers and mild winters, as well as the lovely, 200-square-feet residence his great grandparents had left for him; nonetheless, he had just been offered a managing position at a tech company in Boston that he couldn't refuse. Therefore, he decided to put the house on sale. It was time to move on and let a new family take care of the property.
However, after a home inspection, he was informed that several repairs needed to be performed before considering selling; among them, the professional home inspector recommended a grout cleaning service for the entire house's floors and especially for the master shower. The homeowner had never hired that kind of service for the house before, although he did agree that his tiles needed a touch-up. So, he went online to search for a grout cleaning service in Sugar Land
and found Sir Grout Houston's website. He scheduled an appointment for a free quote through our site.
As part of the consultation, our team asked the homeowner if a grout cleaning had ever been done in any part of the house but, like they suspected, none of the floors had ever been professionally cleaned before. Consequently, the charming, 200-square-feet property's surfaces were not in the best shape – the tiles in the dining room and the rest of the house had embedded dirt. The master shower was also in terrible condition: rust, efflorescence, mold, and mildew growth made it look discolored and worn down.
Our crew of hard surface restorers offered the homeowner a three-step solution to fix the problem: a grout cleaning and ColorSeal service for the entire floor and the same service for the master shower, plus an epoxy regrout for the master shower floor. The Sugar Land resident wanted to leave the house impeccable before selling it, so he immediately agreed to the service.
Our team of experts decided to start the cleaning process in the master bathroom using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to extract the embedded dirt. Next, they steam cleaned the entire shower to sanitize it and remove any soap scum, efflorescence, mold, and mildew. Secondly, they removed the loose grout from the floor joints and performed all the necessary repairs straightaway. To regrout the master shower floor, our team applied Stainmaster Epoxy Grout, a two-part mixture epoxy product known for its durability. All the vertical and horizontal joints of the shower were protected with the same product.
The house started to gain a new atmosphere as the project progressed from the master bathroom to the rest of the tile floors. Upon completion, the floors and master shower looked like the ones in home magazines. By the end of the service, our customer was amazed by how diligently and professionally the team worked to restore his property. The kitchen, the entrance hall, the dining room, the bathroom – it all looked amazingly clean. He couldn't believe the change in his surfaces, especially in the shower. "I didn't know the tiles were that white. It looks brand-new!" he told our team while looking at the grout cleaning and regrouting results.
Even though our experts knew that the house was going to be sold soon, they gave the homeowner some cleaning advice so he could take proper care of his next residence. They recommended him to thoroughly inspect the condition of his future property's floor and to have a cleaning done promptly if needed. Also, they mentioned that a grout and tile sealing service would be great to protect the floor from stains, mold, and mildew.
