This Homeowner in Sugar Land, TX Said Goodbye to Dirty Grout Lines in Her Kitchen with a Professional Grout Cleaning
August 29, 2016This working mom had been complaining for months about the look of her kitchen floor. She kept on saying that she wanted to revive it, since it had lost the beautiful appearance that it had when it was installed. The kitchen was her favorite place in the house. However, the floor had aged and deteriorated. The grout lines were dingy and stained, which gave the kitchen floor an unappealing look. Of course, her frustration increased every time she cleaned it using regular products, with no results. Unfortunately, she hadn't found the time to look for a professional company that could restore it, due to her frequent business trips.
Her sister and best friend wanted to give her a surprise for her birthday. So, they decided on having the homeowner's floor restored as a birthday present. The homeowner's sister started asking her friends through all their social media accounts and see if they knew of a Sugarland grout cleaning company. She was starting to become stressed, but one of her friends sent her a link to Sir Grout Houston's website. She immediately visited our website and filled out the form to schedule a free in-home quote.
She was determined to renew her sister's favorite place. So, the next time her sister was out of town, she let the team of professionals examine her sister's home. Since she was concerned about having everything ready on time, she asked the team if they could perform the service before that Friday, which was her sister's return date. Our team of experts told her that they could start the job the next day.
The professionals noticed the damage at first glance. After having inspected the floor, they told the homeowner's sister that the grout lines were a little aged and deteriorated. Right after, they explained which procedures were the most suitable solutions for this kind of situation. The team said they needed to carry out multiple steps to thoroughly clean the surface. They also said that the grout lines needed to be sealed after cleaning them to prevent further damage.
Grout is a highly porous material. This porosity can allow grime and moisture to permeate grout lines and even get under the tiles. If this seepage is not treated on time, it could create bigger problems. It is necessary to keep an eye out for cracks, uneven spots, and stains, among other signs that can tell you your grout lines are not OK. The best way to prevent further damage to your tile walls and floors is by sealing them right after installation, especially when the area is highly exposed to foot traffic or moisture.
The team of experts returned the next day at the agreed time. They were ready to help with the surprise. They started by using a high speed, yet gentle scrubber and pH-neutral products to remove all the grime from the tile and grout's surface. The professionals also used vapor steam cleaning for stubborn areas. They finished the service by carefully applying an off-white shade of our proprietary ColorSeal, which made the grout lines water-, stain-, mold-, and mildew-resistant.
As soon as the experts finished, they called in the homeowner's sister to show her the new appearance of the kitchen floor. She was very happy with the results, since our team had achieved exactly what her sister had wanted for a long time. The day after, when the homeowner returned to the house, she stood in awe at the kitchen door. She hugged her sister tightly and thanked her for the thoughtful present. She said that it was more beautiful now than when it was first installed.
