This Tiled Kitchen Floor in Devon, PA is Now Fully Clean Thanks to a Grout Cleaning Service
January 07, 2020
Like most things in a home, hard surfaces are exposed to daily wear and tear. Regardless of the care they receive, damage is unavoidable and there will come a time when restoration is needed. This is especially true in the kitchen, where the surfaces are subjected to high traffic and sometimes need to be cleaned more than once per day to keep them free from dirt.
Fortunately, that wasn't the case for a returning customer in Devon, PA. We first met the homeowner six years prior when he had us seal the grout on his kitchen floor. The floor had proved difficult to maintain and he needed an immediate fix. He was so pleased with the outcome that he's requested yearly maintenance sessions for the surface ever since. This time around, the client asked our grout cleaning experts in Devon
to give the floor's grout lines a touch-up.
At the time, we had sealed the grout on the client's floor using our proprietary sealant ColorSeal. This sealant had kept the customer's floor protected over the past six years. While it's true ColorSeal's acrylic composition had made the fixtures less prone to accumulating dirt, it's still necessary to professionally service the grout lines every year to preserve their pristine appearance.
When we arrived at the client's home, we assessed the grout lines to ensure everything was in order. The grout had acquired a grayish tone since our last visit, which was completely normal. We also noticed a few grimy spots near the kitchen counters where most of the spills had happened. The current state of the floor meant the homeowner and his family had once again followed our maintenance tips to a tee. Had that not been the case, we would've come across something entirely different from what we observed.
Once we made sure the fixtures were in good shape, we started the cleaning procedure. We began by soaking the floor with Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Not only will this cleaner loosen up the embedded dirt, it'll also help inhibit the growth of the harmful microorganisms on the client's kitchen floor. After we let the cleaner sit for a few minutes, we extracted the remaining dirt from the tiles and grout lines using a high-speed scrubber. We also used a steam cleaner on the fixtures near the counters to ensure the grime was completely removed. To finish, we wiped the floor dry to avoid leaving excess moisture. The results were outstanding. We had renewed the appearance of the grout lines yet again, and the client was pleased. He thanked us for another amazing job and promised to call back next year for another maintenance session.
Prior to leaving, we reminded the homeowner to continue cleaning the floor once a week using a pH-neutral cleaning solution like our proprietary cleaner. This practice alone had helped preserve the floor's tiles and grout. We also advised him to wash or wipe spills away as soon as they happen. The grimy spots near the counters suggested he had left food waste and other substances sit on the floor for too long. The client thanked us for the tips and assured us he would follow them.
