See How a Grout Recoloring in Houston, TX Revived the Deep Colors of This Homeowner's Tile Floor
September 28, 2016This homeowner fell in love with her kitchen from the first moment she saw it. It was actually the decisive feature that made her acquire the property. The kitchen definitely suited her goal of starting her own catering service from home. After four years of running her small business from home successfully, her kitchen floor had suffered the consequences. What was once an elegant and attractive surface, had become dull and dingy with time and use. Constant exposure to spills, heavy foot traffic, and incorrect cleaning methods had all resulted in grimy and cracked grout lines, which wasn't very helpful when looking for inspiration to make culinary creations.
She decided to invest some of her company's profit in the appearance of her kitchen, since it was essentially, the place where she worked her magic every day. However, she didn't know where she could find a reliable company. The homeowner decided to turn to her social networks for help. She explained her situation to one of her friends on Facebook, who told her that he could recommend her the best grout recoloring company in Houston. He sent her the link to our website and she immediately browsed it. The customer finally scheduled an in-home free quote.
Our team arrived at the client's home and workplace and inspected the kitchen floor right away. They saw the potential in that apparently unappealing floor and instantly designed a plan to help it achieve the maximum of that potential. The experts told the homeowner that they were going to perform a procedure involving multiple stages to ensure good, long-lasting results. Our team of well-trained professionals said that they would start by deeply cleaning the surface to prepare the grout lines for the color sealing stage.
The use of grout is necessary to fill in the space between tiles. Nevertheless, the porous composition of grout allows grime to permeate its surface. This can cause staining and discoloration, as well as mold and mildew growth. Accordingly, it needs to be sealed as soon as it is installed. The grout lines of this tile floor had been exposed for a long time, and they had also been cleaned with incorrect cleaning products, such as soap-based cleaners, which had acted like a dirt magnet. Of course, the homeowner tried to eliminate the dirt by using acidic substances like lemon and vinegar, but this only resulted in deteriorated and discolored grout lines.
On the day of the job, our team of professionals performed a thorough cleaning with pH-neutral products and a high-speed scrubber that removed all the dirt from the grout's surface. They continued the procedure by using vapor steam cleaning to remove the embedded grime in the grout lines. At the end of the service, the specialists carefully color sealed the grout lines to prevent further damage.
ColorSeal is Sir Grout Houston's proprietary, cutting edge grout sealant, which is especially designed to create a shield against dirt, stains, mold, and mildew. It is particularly useful in areas that are subjected to heavy foot traffic and excess moisture. Since ColorSeal comes in different colors and shades, our customer was able to choose a black shade that could highlight the beautiful gray tiles' pattern, customizing the style of her kitchen floor.
After finishing all the planned stages of the service, the professionals showed the homeowner her new floor. She was amazed by the results! She said that she couldn't believe how the grout's color made the tiles stand out! She thanked the team and complimented them for the wonderful outcome. She said she would recommend us to anybody that needed a similar service.
