May 31, 2017
The interior details of a business should be inviting and make people feel comfortable and confident about the service or product they've come in for. It represents responsibility and respect for your workplace. More importantly, it shows that you care about your business, your staff, and your customers. One of our recent clients owned a business, and even though he knew the importance of having a well-maintained office space, deterioration of certain details over time is inevitable. The most evident signs of deterioration in this office were its floors, which had a brownish, grimy appearance. The owner knew it was imperative that he improved the look of his office to give his clients a comfortable and appealing space, so he decided to look for professional help. The only problem was not knowing where to start. He asked his assistant for help, who immediately went online and searched Exton tile cleaning
. She found Sir Grout of Greater Chester County among the top results and arranged for a free consultation.
The team of experts arrived on the scheduled date and time. They were shown the areas that needed improvement—flooring of the foyer and a bathroom. The specialists' expertise helped them identify the problem at first glance. They told the owner that time had a lot to do with the deterioration. It also seemed that they had been using the incorrect cleaning methods and products. It was necessary to deeply clean and seal the grout lines
and tiles and then sealed to reverse and prevent further damage.
Grout is porous, making it highly vulnerable to permeation of liquid and dirt. The accumulation of moisture and grime within grout lines can result in an unpleasant appearance and deterioration, giving you brownish, stained, cracked, peeled, or even crumbling grout lines. As grout decays, tiles become prone to loosening, sometimes to the point of needing to replace them. To prevent this, it is crucial to seal the grout lines right after installation.
On the planned date, the team got to work. Since the owner was eager to show his clients an improved office area, the technicians started by restoring the foyer. The first stage began with cleaning the area with soap-free products and a high-speed scrubber to remove the grime from the surface. Nevertheless, it was necessary to steam clean to ensure the maximum cleanliness of the grout lines and eliminate any existing mold and mildew.
When moisture permeates grout lines, it will probably leave stains. The stain removal procedure can make grout look uneven, which can be solved only by recoloring the grout lines. Since recoloring is one of the most important steps, it should be done by experts. The team proceeded to apply our proprietary ColorSeal—a modern product, specifically designed to seal and protect the grout lines. This sealer does not only give a new, spotless look to your grout lines, but it also blocks the natural pores of the grout, preventing moisture permeation. ColorSeal is made to last as long as grout itself if properly maintained. It comes in different colors so you can match your tiles; the business owner chose a light shade that perfectly matched the tiles in the foyer and the bathroom.
Once the technicians had accomplished the client's needs, they let the business owner in to show him the results. The customer was impressed by the change, saying it looked better than when it was first installed. He thanked the team and told them he was going to recommend our work to anybody in need of a similar service.
Before leaving, the team gave the owner some recommendations to sustain the appearance of the floor. They said it was necessary to keep the surface as dry as possible and to remove any spill as soon as possible. They also said that it was important to use pH-neutral, soap-less cleaning products, which are harmless to the surface.
