Our Arlington Tile and Grout Cleaners Bring a Speckless Christmas to This Homeowner
December 23, 2021While tile is a versatile material that can be utilized in a variety of contexts, it excels in areas that require a simple yet attractive design. That is exactly what prompted an Arlington, TN, homeowner to have tile flooring installed on his kitchen. Unfortunately, the floor began to show signs of disintegration one year after it was installed. The grout lines were extensively deteriorated and the tiles had lost their natural color.
The owner couldn't stand looking at the current state of the floor. The family's favorite part of the house was the kitchen, where they had created many wonderful moments. He wanted to make sure that this precious site was well-protected and well-maintained. He also wanted to touch up the tiles to improve their appearance. Despite his doubts about whether he would be able to find a reputable company quickly, he went online and looked for Arlington Tile and Grout Cleaners. Our website came up first in the search results. He was so impressed with the work we'd done on other surfaces that he contacted us to set up a free in-home consultation.
On the scheduled date, we went to the client's house to evaluate the floor. We immediately noticed what the client had mentioned over the phone as soon as we entered the kitchen area. After we completed analyzing the surface, we were able to confirm our first suspicions. The deterioration of the floor was caused by shoddy grouting. During the installation of our client's floor, the workers he hired utilized the incorrect sort of grout. Because tile expands and contracts in response to temperature fluctuations, professionals use caulk to fill in gaps so the surface's integrity isn't jeopardized.
Thankfully, we came just in time to save the day. We provided the owner with a top-notch restoration service. We'd start by thoroughly cleaning the tiles on the floor and scraping out any remaining filth. After that, we'd seal the entire surface using our proprietary sealant ColorSeal. This would give the tile surface a brand-new look. The customer agreed to the offer and made an appointment for later in the week, believing in our abilities to restore the floor.
On the scheduled date, we returned to the client's home to complete the service. We started by using our natural cleaner to wet the floor. This cleaner has properties that can help suppress the growth of filth, mold, and mildew, in addition to being pH-neutral and harmless for both tile and grout. We let the cleaner sit for a few minutes to ensure that even the most stubborn dirt was removed. We then used a high-speed scrubber to remove the cleaner from the tiles. We scraped the remaining grime from the floor after we finished cleaning. Because much of the grout mix had adhered to the sides of the tiles, this proved to be a challenging task. To prevent damaging the tiles, we treated several portions of the floor with extra caution.
We applied our epoxy grout to the floor after the old grout was fully removed. Regular grout is significantly less durable than this high-quality grout mix. It also helps inhibit water seepage, cracks, stains, and mold growth. Finally, we applied our flagship sealant ColorSeal. This impregnating sealant not only protects tile floors, but it also improves their beauty by giving them a lovely bright look. ColorSeal is available in a variety of colors, allowing our customers to pick the one that matches their tiles.
The job went off without a hitch. Our unique procedure provided the homeowner with exactly what he desired: tidy tiles and spotless grout. The client complimented us on our work and stated that he would recommend Sir Grout Memphis to his co-workers.
Before leaving, our experts gave the homeowner some advice on how to keep the tiles and grout in good shape, like sweeping the floor to remove loose dirt and dust on a regular basis. After that, we advised him to clean the tile and grout with pH-neutral, soap-free floor cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner and let them soak for five minutes before mopping as usual where filth had accumulated the most. Keep the surface dry with a towel or cloth to eliminate any filthy water or cleaner residue that has fallen into the concave grout lines.
