A Grout Cleaning Service in Houston, TX, Was All This Family Was Looking for to Renew Their Home!
October 17, 2017For this family in Houston, TX, their home was their most valuable property. They had been living there for the last ten years. They often invited many of their friends over on the weekends to spend time together and have dinner. After ten years of living in their incredible home, the wife noticed something odd about their living room floor and brought it up immediately to her husband. He noticed that the floor's grout looked unattractive due to all the dirt that was covering the surface. They both agreed they needed to do something about it. These parents had two children and had no time to clean the living room floor except for on the weekends, so they found a few tips online, bought some cleaners, and decided to give DIY grout cleaning a try. The couple was excited about cleaning their living room floor.
A month passed and the couple didn't notice any positive results—the grout was still dirty and it was not getting any better. In their desperation, the husband called his brother to ask him if he knew about a reliable and professional company who could help them with their problem. The brother advised him to search online for a grout cleaning company in Houston. The couple searched right away and found Sir Grout Houston in the top results. On our website, they read some testimonials about previous clients and saw some before and after pictures about the grout restoration services we provide—they were amazed! They decided to give us a call to arrange an appointment.
On the day of the evaluation, our grout cleaning team examined the living room floor and confirmed why the couple was so worried—the floor's grout was covered in dirt. The team explained that grout can suffer damage when exposed to heavy foot traffic, water, and improper cleaning products and methods. Our experts guaranteed the couple that a grout cleaning service would recover its attractive appearance. The main problem with this surface was the grout lines, which made the tiles look as if they were a different color, so a grout cleaning service would do just the trick. The team and the couple agreed on a date to do the job. They wanted the living room floor renewed as soon as possible so they could start entertaining their friends again without being embarrassed of their dirty floors.
Days later, the team arrived at the house to start the grout cleaning job. To help these concerned clients solve their problem, a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner was applied using a gentle scrubber to remove the grime from the grout and tiles. To achieve a deeper cleaning, a vapor steam cleaner was used. After the floor was clean and dry, our team applied Sir Grout's proprietary ColorSeal with the color the customer chose: Antique Ivory. This color matched perfectly with the living room's decoration. Our ColorSeal product is a long-term, cost-effective solution that will re-color the grout while also making it resistant to stains, water, mold, and mildew. The living room completely recovered its brightness back.
The couple was impressed with the outcome when our experts showed them the cleaning and recoloring results. The floor really was renewed. They took several pictures of it and promised they would show the photos to their friends. They were happy and satisfied with the wonderful service.
Before leaving, the experts gave the clients some care and maintenance instructions to preserve the renewed look of the floor. They advised them to stop using soap-based cleaner for the floor. Why? This leaves a sticky residue behind that traps dirt, so they should use a non-toxic, pH-neutral, soap-less cleaner instead. Also, they explained that tile floors should never be left to air dry; it is best to use a dry mop or terry cloth to dry the floor to ensure that the tiles and grout remain clean.
