Our Clearwater Grout Cleaning Masters Restore the Floor of a Home and It Goes Smoothly
November 29, 2023One of the most time-consuming household chores is cleaning the floors. Thus, most people tend to overlook this task. Leaving the floors too much time uncleaned might lead to major issues. While most substances can withstand the wear and tear that daily foot traffic can entail, the same cannot be said about grout. Because grout lines between the tiles are porous, they can absorb liquid as well as other external agents like dirt and filth. This not only degrades the aesthetic of the grout lines, but it also endangers the structural integrity of tiled surfaces.
A Tampa, FL, resident didn't have enough time to properly clean his home's floors. He tried to clean the grout, hoping it would look better. He tried many DIY methods and over-the-counter items, but nothing worked. Frustrated, he decided that searching for expert assistance was the best option. He searched online for Clearwater Grout Cleaning and discovered Sir Grout Tampa in the top results. When he read all of the positive comments we had received, he decided to fill out our evaluation form to get a free in-home consultation.
We went to the client's house on the arranged day to inspect the floors. At first glance, we identified the issues. The grout was filthy, and the lines were clogged. Mold and mildew had gotten inside the grout lines. These issues were created not just by a lack of regular maintenance, but also by the constant wear and tear these tiles can endure.
We discussed what type of issues leaving the surface in such a state can lead to. We informed the homeowner that long-term exposure to mold can be harmful to one's health. Also, damaged grout lines may cause structural damage. Concerned about the condition of the home's surfaces, the client asked if there was anything we could do to resolve this problem.
We advised him that the best approach to keep the floors in good shape was to take preventative steps. The homeowner was offered a grout cleaning service and a multi-step sealing process, using our own products. He agreed to our offer because he was relieved to know the problem had fixing.
We returned to the customer's home the next day to get the task done. To remove the filth from the tiles and grout lines, we used our cleaner in addition to a high-speed scrubber to clean the floors. This cleaning also includes solutions that help in the removal of mold and the prevention of its growth. To verify that the mold and mildew were thoroughly eradicated, we utilized a steam cleaner. The damaged caulk was scraped away and replaced with our own brand of epoxy grout.
The next step was to seal the entire surface. We used ColorSeal to seal the grout lines on the floors. This acrylic-based sealant seals the grout's pores, preventing it from absorbing dangerous exterior contaminants.
The entire surface was spotless after we were done. The dingy grout lines were gone, and the floor was now mold and mildew-free. We asked the owner to see the results, and he was flabbergasted when he did. After thanking us, he said he would tell his coworkers about Sir Grout Tampa.
While ColorSeal and its variations are designed to last as long as the grout, adequate maintenance of floors is still required to achieve long-term effects. Before leaving the owner's home, we gave him some advice. To begin, we advised avoiding DIY cleaning methods and store-bought products. These cleaners mostly include harmful chemicals that can accelerate the deterioration of tile and grout. We recommended that the customer cleaned the floors once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner to keep it looking good. Finally, to avoid mold formation, we recommend cleaning away liquids or spills as soon as they touch the floor.
