Outstanding and Beautiful Results for This Kitchen Floor in Hitchcock, TX after a Grout Recoloring Service
August 23, 2017For a chef, a kitchen is the most important room of any property, either workplace or home. This was the case with a client in Hitchcock, TX. He had been working as an executive chef in a popular restaurant in town and didn't have time to take care of his kitchen at home. However, whenever he had some free time, he dedicated it to cleaning his house, especially his kitchen, but something was wrong. One Saturday night, after intensely cleaning the kitchen floor, he invited his friends over for dinner and they noticed the floor was still looking dull.
Months later, the chef decided to spend his day off resting at home. In the afternoon, he was looking through old pictures and realized his kitchen floor was not the same from when first installed like he thought, the grout had become all dirty and dark. Immediately, he Googled a grout recoloring company in Hitchcock with quality services. In the top results, he found Sir Grout Houston. He was impressed with the before and after pictures that were on their website, so he called right away and arranged an appointment.
That same week, our team went to the house to examine the problem. They verified that the grout was dirty and dark, and there were parts of the grout missing as well. The client explained to us that he usually was not at home due to his work, but he cleaned his kitchen floor every weekend so he did not understand what happened to the floor.
Our experts told him that without periodic professional maintenance and proper cleaning methods and products, tiles and grout darken and deteriorate until they look completely different from the day they were installed. He admitted he cleaned the floor with general cleaning products bought at the local store.
Grout is a porous material that allows grime and liquid to permeate its surface. For that reason alone, it is necessary to apply sealant to the grout lines to preserve their appearance and durability. After the inspection, our hard surface restorers concluded that harmful cleaning products contributed to the dirt buildup on the tiles and grout lines. This dirt buildup can seep into the grout lines, causing stains.
Our team explained to the homeowner that before recoloring the grout, the floor needed a deep grout and tile cleaning service. Then, they would need to remove the old grout and replace it with new grout. The team guaranteed him that with a grout cleaning and recoloring service, his floor would recover its beauty. He accepted right away; he wanted his kitchen looking beautiful again.
A few days later, the cleaning process began. Our team deeply cleaned the floor using soap-less, pH-neutral cleaning products and a high-speed scrubber that removed the dirt buildup. They even used vapor steam cleaning to make sure that the floor was clean to its core. Once the floor was completely clean, they immediately removed the old grout and replaced it with new grout. Then our restorers started the recoloring process applying Sir Grout's proprietary ColorSeal—a top-notch sealant, designed specifically for grout lines. They explained to the client that this product will not only recolor the grout, it would also make it stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant, simplifying the cleaning process. It can last as long as the grout itself if it is correctly applied and maintained.
After finishing the service, the professionals showed the customer his renewed kitchen floor. The chef was in love with the result. Amazed by the excellent job, he thanked our team for the incredible outcome. His entire kitchen looked renewed and was gorgeous… exactly as he wanted. He said he would recommend us to anybody that needed these services. He posted a picture on his Facebook page to reveal the stunning kitchen floor after our work.
Our team gave this client some advice to maintain his beautiful kitchen floor. First, they told him 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. They also advised him to stop using a soap-based cleaner since it leaves a sticky residue behind that traps dirt. Instead, he should look for a non-toxic, pH-neutral, soap-less cleaner.
