This Ceramic Floor in Wayne, Looks Pristine Again Thanks to Our Grout Cleaning
March 26, 2022Light-colored ceramic tiles are a popular choice when it comes to kitchen floors. Not only do they evoke high-quality and elegance, but they're also very durable. If they're not properly maintained, however, ceramic floors can be easily overcome by dirt. That was the case for a homeowner in Wayne, PA. She didn't know how to properly maintain her floor, resulting in dirty tiles and discolored grout lines.
Even though she cleaned the floor regularly, the grout lines kept getting worse. Unfortunately, she wasn't aware that she had to frequently change the mop water to prevent dirt from lodging into the grout's porous surface. She tried cleaning with store-bought products and even bleach, but none of them worked. She didn't want the floor to look the way it did, so she went online and searched for a reputable Wayne Grout Cleaning company to have the surface restored. She found our website in the top search results. After watching a few video testimonials and browsing the picture gallery, she called to schedule a free in-home assessment.
A few days later, Sir Grout of Greater Chester County visited her home to assess the surface. When they inspected the floor, they saw that the once clean tiles and grout lines were now darkened due to dirt buildup. Cleaning the ceramic floor with store-bought products and not changing the mop water frequently were among the factors responsible for the state of the surface. Grout is a porous material. If it's not properly sealed, grout can absorb everything that it comes in contact with, causing it to discolor or stain. Cleaning with a dirty mop does nothing but spread the dirty water over the floor, damaging the grout lines.
Fortunately, it was nothing Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's professionals couldn't handle. Even though the floor was dirty, it could be easily restored with a tile and grout cleaning procedure. They also offered to seal the grout with ColorSeal to protect it long-term. The homeowner agreed and set up a date to get the job done.
On the day of the job, our techs went back to the client's home to perform the service. Our team started by cleaning the floor using our proprietary pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaner contains properties that help reduce mold and mildew. The floor's grout slowly regained its color the more they cleaned. Once they finished the thorough cleaning process, they began the sealing procedure.
Our specialists carefully applied our proprietary sealant ColorSeal to the grout lines. Not only does ColorSeal recolor grout, but it also protects it against dirt, spills, stains, water, mold, and mildew. It also comes in a variety of colors. The customer chose white ColorSeal to give the floor a hygienic appearance.
Once the job was finished, our experts showed the client the results. She was mesmerized by the outcome and couldn't believe that from that point forward the grout lines on her floor would look pristine. The white grout highlighted the beautiful ceramic tiles. She thanked our crew and said she would call back for maintenance.
Before leaving, Sir Grout of Greater Chester County's team gave the homeowner some simple recommendations to keep the floor looking brand-new. They first recommended cleaning the floor once a week using a clean mop and a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike bleach and other over-the-counter products, this cleaning solution won't damage tile or grout nor leave any residue behind. They also suggested changing the mop frequently during lengthy cleaning sessions to avoid spreading dirt around. Our experts also noted that the floor should be cleaned gently. ColorSeal makes surfaces easier to clean, so it's not necessary to do any hard scrubbing to keep the grout lines in good condition.
