This Bathroom Has a Brand-New Look Thanks to Our Grout Recoloring Service in St Petersburg, FL
November 14, 2017Bathrooms receive a lot of foot traffic, which is why they need regular maintenance. However, this does not guarantee that the grout between the bathroom tiles will always look as good as it did when the tiles were first installed. That was what happened to this family in St Petersburg, FL. They bought their wonderful home five years ago, and they loved every part of it. Since the husband's job didn't allow him to spend much time at home, the wife was at home more often. She had a part-time job that allowed her to spend more time with her children and do the things she liked to do. Also, having this job allowed her to clean the house every once in a while. She cleaned the house once or twice a week, depending on how much time she had after taking care of the children.
One day, while she was cleaning, she decided to focus on the bathroom. Why? She knew it was more susceptible to dirt due the foot traffic, but like her husband, she wasn't at home all day. She did not think that there was something wrong with her bathroom. While she was cleaning and listening to some music, one of her friends sent her photos of a a grout recoloring job that was done in her kitchen floor in St Petersburg. The results were incredible and after seeing these photos, she asked herself if any area of her home needed this kind of service. She looked at some pictures from when she and her husband bought the house, and something caught her attention—the grout in the bathroom was full of dirt. She didn't understand how this had happened.
She spent the next day cleaning the bathroom after reading some tips that she had found online. After her first attempt, there was no change at all. But she believed it was just because it needed more than one cleaning session to see any results. After a month of deep cleaning sessions, she still didn't see any positive results in the bathroom. That's when she realized that she needed to hire professionals to solve the issue. The woman immediately called the friend who had sent her the pictures and ask about what company had cleaned the kitchen floor. Her friend told her to search for Sir Grout Tampa online. The friend told the homeowner that the company usually appears among the top search results. After seeing several pictures of our previous work and reading some testimonials on our website from satisfied customers, the resident decided that we were perfect fit for the job and called us to schedule a free, in-home consultation.
On the day of the examination, our team of experts arrived at the client's house to offer her the best solution to the problem. The woman led us to the bathroom that she had talked about over the phone, and our technicians noticed the dirty grout lines right away. They explained to her that it was not her fault because most homeowners do not know the proper cleaning methods and products to apply when they are cleaning this particular area of the house. Also, they explained that since grout is highly porous, it can become stained if it is constantly exposed to liquid and dirt. Our experts decided that a grout recoloring procedure would solve the problem. The woman trusted us. She knew that she was in the best hands.
On the day of the job, our technicians came back knowing what needed to be done to leave the bathroom just as the woman wanted. They started the process by applying a pH-neutral cleaner to the bathroom and used a high-speed scrubber to remove the old grime. Also, they used vapor steam cleaning for the most difficult areas. The bathroom tiles and grout looked cleaner, but there was one last step that was needed to really finish the job.
Our experts explained to the client that the final step was to apply our proprietary ColorSeal, which is a product that creates a shield around grout, protecting it from water, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew. If this sealant is properly applied and the bathroom is properly maintained, it can last as long as the grout itself, and the best part of all is that it comes in different colors so that the client could match her grout lines to the tiles.
When our team finished applying ColorSeal, they invited the client to see the results. The woman was thrilled to see the amazing outcome. She never thought that our service would leave her bathroom so clean and beautiful. She thanked us for our incredible work and mentioned that she would recommend us if she learned of anyone who was having problems with their hard surfaces.
Before leaving, our experts told the resident some tips to keep the bathroom looking amazing. Our crew kindly recommended that she clean the surface with soap-less cleaning products for regular maintenance because these products will not wear down the grout or damage the sealant. Soap-based products, on the other hand, leave a residue that attracts dirt.
