Bellevue Stone Sealing: Revamping Damaged Natural Stone Surfaces with the Best Restoration Process
February 22, 2020A homeowner from Bellevue, WA needed Sir Grout's assistance. His natural stone shower had received years of heavy daily use. Because of that, the tiles and the grout looked rundown and unappealing. The owner performed regular cleaning routines, but the condition of the surface didn't improve. Determined to solve the problem, he went online and found some DIY methods. Unfortunately, his efforts mopping and brushing didn't provide the results he was hoping for.
The owner wanted to find a solution as soon as possible, so he decided to hire professionals. Thankfully, one of his friends was a loyal Sir Grout Seattle client. She highly recommended our Bellevue Stone Sealing service, saying we had incredibly restored the ceramic floors in her house. He followed her advice and went online to visit our website. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery, and reading the positive feedback we receive every day, he filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment.
Shortly after the owner's request, we arrived to perform the in-home consultation. We immediately noticed the natural stone tiles were in poor condition. As a result of heavy use, the surface had accumulated dirt, grime, and soap residue, giving the entire area an unsightly appearance. Upon closer inspection, we learned the stone needed sealing. We explained that unsealed surfaces can absorb all sorts of external agents. This can lead to quick deterioration and more issues. To prevent damages, it's necessary to keep the stone fully sealed. When we finished the inspection, we concluded regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide the solution the owner was expecting. This job required Sir Grout's professional process and high-end equipment. We proposed a stone sealing service to address the damages, shield the surface, and give the shower a revamped new look. The owner was happy with the offer and hired us without hesitation.
On the appointed date, we returned to restore the shower. To achieve optimal results, our stone sealing process follows a series of thorough steps. We started by cleaning the surface using our exclusive stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product is pH-neutral, doesn't leave a residue, and won't cause any damage to the natural stone tiles. After effectively scrubbing out the soiling, we steam-cleaned the area to remove embedded dirt. For the next step, we continued with the grout repairs. Using high-end diamond saws, we painstakingly worked on the entire surface until we fixed all the issues. Once the surface was spotless, we were ready for the sealing process.
For this task, we applied a coating of an enhanced protective sealer. Our top of the line product provides long-lasting results and unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and reduces deterioration from daily use. Our sealant improves the surface tenfold by giving the stone a brand-new appearance. It also makes cleaning routines easy and fast by minimizing the need for excessive scrubbing. When we finished all the steps, the restoration had been successful, all the issues had been addressed, and the natural stone surface looked great.
Our client was extremely happy with our work. He was beyond thrilled because the process had been efficient and cost-effective. After thanking us, he said our performance had surpassed all his expectations and assured us he would recommend Sir Grout Seattle to everyone.
Natural stone tiles are a great choice for showers, but over time, heavy wear and tear can lead to deterioration and damages. For this reason, it's necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations for optimal maintenance procedures. We suggested setting a weekly cleaning routine to minimize the accumulation of dirt and grime. Perform this task using only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is made with top-notch ingredients and offers many other benefits. It's also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners because they leave a foam that seeps into the grout lines. This can lead to degradation and more severe issues like structural problems. It's best to avoid cleaning solutions with acidic properties as well. These substances are harsh and can harm the stone.
Mold and mildew thrive in damp areas. These fungi are a threat and can become a health hazard for everyone in the house. To prevent this problem, allow the moisture to flow freely by leaving the door ajar or window open. After using the shower, dry the surface using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing regularly is also one of the best ways to keep the surface in top condition.
