This Bathroom Floor Gets a Full Makeover with Our Richmond Grout Cleaning Service
September 06, 2021Sometimes, a regular cleaning routine is not enough to hide a bathroom's run-down look. This is something that a Richmond couple understood very well after trying countless different cleaning products on their floor with no success. The couple kept a regular cleaning regime to prevent dirt and mold from collecting on their bathroom surfaces, but that didn't stop their floor tiles from looking shabby and worn down. They also tried following some tips they found online, but the recommended products did nothing to improve the floor's appearance. Fearing their DIY approach was causing more harm than good, they decided to seek professional assistance to help them restore their floor's natural color and shine.
This was a reasonable concern, as the problem specifically affected the bathroom that was usually reserved for guests. As homeowners, the couple was well aware of what kind of impression this could leave on any potential visitor, so they took their research seriously, making sure that the company they ended up hiring had the right credentials to solve their problem once and for all. They found Sir Grout Houston online while searching for a Richmond Grout Cleaning services and immediately took note of our clients' positive reviews. They were particularly optimistic after seeing the results displayed in our website's picture gallery and wasted no time to give us a call. As per the couple's request, the Sir Grout technicians headed to their home to inspect the floor's condition.
Once inside the clients' house, our team started assessing the bathroom area and immediately noticed that the floor's color looked dull, adding an unsanitary appearance that was very unflattering. They could also see traces of dirt that remained stuck to the grout despite all previous cleaning attempts. While the problem had extended all over the entire bathroom floor, our specialists were quick to reassure the couple that there was no irreparable damage. We explained the best course of action: a full steam cleaning service, followed by the application of a sealant on the grout lines. After describing the process, the clients hired our cleaning services and scheduled an appointment for us to work on their floors.
On the day of the job, we began cleaning the floors with our signature cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Most regular cleaning products leave marks that gradually dull the surfaces due to the pH imbalances in their formulas. Sir Grout's pH-neutral product poses no risks on the surfaces, helping your grout last longer without showing signs of deterioration. After we used a steam cleaner to remove any embedded dirt, the tiles regained much of their original shine.
Our crew then applied ColorSeal to preserve the grout lines against dirt, mold, mildew, and other external agents, including UV rays in areas exposed to sunlight. The sealing process made the grout more resistant, but it didn't stop there. Being available in different colors, our top-of-the-line sealants add to the surface's aesthetic appeal, making it possible to make the grout match the color of the tiles. This job was no exception. Once we were done sealing the grout, the entire floor looked much more polished, and the change was evident in all areas of the room. We ended the process after buffing the floors to enhance the tiles' renewed shine.
The clients were thrilled as soon as they saw the results. They'd been secretly worrying about potential mishaps, and seeing that such a vast improvement was achieved in so little time was a pleasant surprise. Thanks to Sir Grout's exclusive cleaning and sealing services, their bathroom floor can now retain the classy appearance it was always meant to give while resisting the effects of dirt, grime, foot traffic, and other common household conditions.
To ensure this outcome in the long run, we shared some recommendations with the couple that will surely help them through the maintenance of their grout. For a proper cleaning routine, we suggested using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Soap-based cleaners and substances with acidic properties not only cause visible stains after being absorbed by the grout but also wear down the surface's sealant, prompting structural damage on the floors. We also recommended keeping an eye on all cleaning tools to ensure no scratches are left on the floor after each cleaning session. Wire brushes and steel wools should be left out of the process altogether. Proper ventilation also does wonders to stop the accumulation of fungi and mold.
