A Grout Cleaning Service Repaired the Floor and Walls of This Bathroom in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
March 30, 2017
As part of the annual spring cleaning ritual, this homeowner had taken on the challenge of renovating the bathrooms in his home in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. However, the task turned out to be harder that he thought, especially in the first-floor bathroom. The grout of the wall and floor tiles was covered in so much grime that it was impossible for the Phoenixville resident to clean, no matter what methods he used. He decided that for this bathroom in particular, he needed professional help.
The homeowner went online to see if he could find a grout cleaning company in Phoenixville
that could help him restore the bathroom. Surprisingly, he found Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's website among the first search results; he had heard about the company before but didn't know they covered his area! He decided to put his trust in our services and he filled in the "Request a Quote" form on our website to set up a free, in-home consultation.
Sir Grout's team of restorers went on the fixed day to examine the bathroom. The place had an interesting design with three different types of tiles: granite and white ceramic tiles on the walls and grayish tiles on the floor. They noticed right away that the grout was covered in dirt, which was blackish and unappealing. The grout was presumably never sealed or wrong cleaning products were used to clean it.
The Phoenixville resident showed our team the soap-based cleaner he used daily to clean the bathroom. Soap-based agents are not recommended for grout because they leave a sticky residue that traps dirt. The cleaner that the client had was undoubtedly one of the reasons that contributed to the grout's deterioration. Our experts kindly explained to the homeowner that such cleaners should be avoided and that a professional grout cleaning service would make his bathroom look as good as new; he accepted immediately.
Our hard surface restorers arrived early in the morning a few days later to start the cleaning process. First, they applied Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's special tile and grout cleaner to loosen the embedded dirt in the walls and floor. A high-speed buffer was then used to deeply clean both surfaces. Once the walls and floor were clean and dry, the team proceeded with the restoration process. For the walls, the grout had to be re-grouted because it was structurally deteriorating; the team replaced it with a white-colored grout that matched the tiles' shade. As for the floor's grout, the experts used Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's proprietary ColorSeal in the color the customer chose which was a light blue shade to contrast with the floor tiles.
All of their hard work turned out to be worth it. The bathroom looked great – the restored walls and tiles looked brand new and the recolored floor grout highlighted the tiles' grayish shades. The combination of the white wall tiles and the gray floor tiles, along with the bathroom fixtures and accessories, resulted in an interesting yet traditional, relaxing room. The homeowner couldn't wait to show it to his family. Besides swapping out his cleaner for a soap-less, pH-neutral kind, our team advised the Phoenixville resident to dry the floor with a clean towel or a terry cloth, instead of allowing it to air dry. This is to prevent dirty cleaner residue from settling into the grout lines and damaging the tiles.
