See How Our Tile Sealing Service in Houston, TX Renewed The Appearance of a Customer's Worn-Down Ceramic Floors in Just One Day
September 10, 2023Our latest customer recently contacted us because he had been having problems with the beautiful ceramic floors in his home. Both the tiles and grout lines had become dirty. Despite using many cleaning methods and products, he couldn't restore the floors to their former appearance. Unfortunately, it only got worse as time passed. Concerned, the homeowner decided to look for a Houston Tile Sealing company that could help him achieve what he wasn't able to do by himself.
Because of its convenience, the homeowner trusted finding a high-quality hard surface restoration company by surfing the web and looking at the most recommended results in search engines. That was how he managed to stumble upon Sir Grout Houston's website. While checking our picture galleries, he was thrilled to find we had a lot of experience restoring ceramic tile floors. The testimonials and reviews were the cherries on top that prompted him to pick up the phone and call to set up an appointment for a free in-home assessment.
On the day of the evaluation, our techs arrived at the customer's residence early in the morning. After they were greeted by the client, they inspected the floors. Deep-seated grime covered the tiles and grout lines, making them appear unhygienic. Upon closer inspection, our tech noticed the floors were coated with wax. Since the wax trapped dirt and debris, it contributed to the deterioration of the surfaces and made them difficult to clean.
To remove the grime, clean the grout, strip the wax, and leave everything looking like a brand-new installation, our tech proposed a tile and grout cleaning and sealing service. Trusting our tech's expertise, the client agreed to their proposal and scheduled a date for the job.
On the day of the job, our team of technicians returned to the customer's home to restore the floors. They began by spraying the floors with a wax stripping solution. Next they used a high-speed scrubber to remove the wax from the tiles and grout lines. Once they finished stripping the floors and extracting the dirty solution, our team rinsed the surfaces using a pH-neutral cleaner. On top of being safe for tile and grout, this cleaner contains sanitizing properties that help reduce common household bacteria, mold, and mildew. For the spots that proved difficult to clean, our experts used a steam cleaner.
Once they finished cleaning, our techs began the sealing procedure. First they coated the grout lines with our flagship sealant ColorSeal. This is an acrylic-based sealant that shuts off the grout's pores, making it impervious to water, stains, spills, mold, and mildew. It also comes in a variety of colors. The client chose white to give the floors the pristine appearance he always wanted. To finish, our specialists coated the tiles with Tile Armor. On top of sharing some of the protective qualities of ColorSeal, this impregnating sealant enhances the overall appearance of tile by giving it a fresh look.
When they finished, our techs let the homeowner see the results. He couldn't believe the outcome. The once dingy floors now looked clean, and the grout lines evoked a sense of cleanliness that he felt was missing before the service. He thanked our team for a job well done and said he would recommend our services to his friends and family.
Before leaving, our experts gave the client a few maintenance tips to help him keep the floor in good shape. Even though ceramic flooring is easier to clean than flooring of other materials, it's important to give it regular maintenance to ensure it remains in good condition. For that reason, our techs recommended cleaning the floors once a week using a dry mop and a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike most store-bought products, this cleaner doesn't contain acidic substances or soap, making it the ideal cleaning solution for regular use. Our team also suggested wiping away spills as soon as they happened. This practice helps prevent dirt accumulation and deterioration.
