From Dull to Radiant: A Grout Recoloring Service Transformed Both the Kitchen and Living Room of This Houston Resident
December 28, 2016This homeowner is a DIY home restoration enthusiast. Ever since she bought her lovely residence in Houston five years ago, she has made some repairs that the house needed. Installing new closets, fixing the rain gutters, or replacing damaged baseboards – she did everything by herself and got admirable results. The Houston resident also had a good eye for home design and loved to renovate rooms. That year, she decided to do a remodel; she repainted the kitchen and living room walls with light blue and had new white kitchen furniture installed.
The place looked great, but something was out of place. The living room and kitchen floors were too dark for the new bright and charming decor. She considered changing her tiles, but the project was way out of her budget. Then it occurred to her: changing the color of the grout would surely brighten up the floor's appearance. At first, she thought she could do the recoloring by herself, but after researching the procedure, the homeowner concluded that this was a project that had to be handled by professionals. Therefore, she went online and searched for a Houston grout recoloring service that could help with her plan.
When browsing for options, Sir Grout Houston appeared among the first search results. Our previous work and the positive customer reviews on our website made her trust our services, so she decided to give us a call to schedule a free, in-home consultation. Naturally, when we heard the homeowner's story, we told her we would be really happy to help with her project.
On the day of the consultation, the homeowner welcomed us with a big smile and gave us a tour of her home – she even showed us old pictures so we could admire the remodeling job she had done. She explained what she wanted for her floor's grout, and we were glad to have the perfect solution for her.
We offered her a grout recoloring service, but we told her that before that job, the grout and tiles needed to be cleaned since years of foot-traffic had dirtied the surface. After said service, our team of experts would use Sir Grout Houston's proprietary ColorSeal – a thick, water-based, acrylic sealer for grout that is also tinted. The homeowner agreed to the services right away, and we arranged for the project to start a few days later.
The cleaning began with a non-toxic, pH-neutral cleaner that we applied to the grout and tiles; we then used a high-speed scrubber to loosen the embedded dirt. Once the floor was properly cleaned, our team started the recoloring process by applying ColorSeal to each grout line. This service not only changed the grout's color to the one the customer wanted, but also sealed the grout, making it stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant.
The homeowner was really impressed by our team's work. The grout was not only in the color she wanted, but it also looked extremely clean. She then told us that the renewed floor surpassed her expectations. As our team noticed how proud the Houston resident was of her house, they decided to give her some recommendations to maintain the floor's clean appearance, especially advising her not to use a dirty mop to clean the floor and to never leave the floor wet so the dirt doesn't settle into the grout lines. So, they recommended her to use a big terry cloth towel to dry the whole surface.
