Check How Our Grout Cleaning Service Gave These Dirty Floors in Cedar Park, TX a Flawless Appearance
March 30, 2020Decorations can drastically change the appearance of a room. The truth is, however, that even the fanciest interior decoration can be unsightly if the surfaces are dingy. That was the case for a homeowner in Cedar Park, TX. He recently had most of the decoration in his home changed, but the floors remained in poor condition. The grout lines were dirty and stained, which prevented the rooms from looking flawless. After he spent several days searching online to see what he could do to improve the situation, he found several homemade recipes which he tried and found to be ineffective.
While searching online, he also noticed that many people had dealt with a similar issue. In their accounts, improper cleaning techniques and poor sealing procedures had been the culprit. With this in mind, the homeowner decided it was best to leave the restoration of the floors in the hands of professionals. He searched for grout cleaning professionals in Cedar Park, TX, and found our website in the top search results. After seeing many video testimonials from satisfied customers, he called to schedule a free assessment.
A few days later, our experts visited the client's house to perform the evaluation. As they examined the surfaces, they noticed the grout lines showed several signs of deterioration. Our techs explained to the customer that the sealant had worn off, leaving the grout lines exposed to harmful external agents. When our specialists asked the client about his cleaning methods, he said that he had been using a homemade recipe in an attempt to clean the grout lines. The recipe contained vinegar, lemon, and baking soda. What the customer didn't know is that his cleaning attempts had only made matters worse. The acids in vinegar and lemons had compromised the integrity of the grout lines, making them prone to absorbing dirt and moisture.
Fortunately, none of the fixtures were cracked. Most of the damage had happened at a surface level, widening the grout's pores and leaving them open to absorb more debris. To solve the problem, our experts proposed a grout cleaning and sealing service for every surface. To seal the floors they would use our flagship sealant Tile Armor. Feeling glad that there was a solution to the problem, the client agreed to the service.
On the day of the job, our experts went back to the customer's home to perform the service. They started by dousing the surfaces with a pH-neutral cleaner that is safe for both tile and grout. This cleaner has been enhanced with an ingredient that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold and microorganisms. After most of the dirt had come loose, our crew extracted the remaining dirt from the grout lines using a high-speed scrubber. They also used a steam cleaner on the spots where dirt proved difficult to remove. To finish the job, our techs thoroughly dried the floors and coated them with Tile Armor. This is an impregnating sealant that protects tile and grout against dirt, spills, water, mold, and mildew. It also enhances the overall appearance of the tiles.
As shown in the pictures, the pristine-looking grout lines changed the appearance of the surfaces for the better. The homeowner was pleased with the outcome and for having found a much-needed solution to his problem. He thanked our crew and said he would recommend our grout cleaning services to his friends and family.
Before leaving, our team gave the client some care tips to help him keep the floors in good condition. They first suggested cleaning the floors once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike the products and homemade recipes the client had been using, our cleaner doesn't damage tile or grout. It also prolongs the lifespan of Tile Armor. Our crew also recommended wiping excess water away after every cleaning session. This helps prevent the spread of dirt in high traffic areas such as the kitchen.
