Bothell Stone Sealing Pros Successfully Restored This Stone Floor, Enhancing the Surface
November 27, 2021A homeowner from Bothell, WA, contacted us because she was not happy with the condition of her floor. Her house was equipped with a beautiful natural stone surface, but after years of enduring heavy foot traffic, it had lost its beauty. Now, it looked dirty and unappealing. The owner was not happy with this situation, but nothing she tried had worked. With limited options, she decided it was best to look for a professional hard surface restoration company. Luckily, she found Sir Grout Seattle and we helped her solve the problem.
The owner heard about us when she called one of her friends and asked for advice. He was a loyal client and immediately recommended our Bothell Stone Sealing services, saying we had done a wonderful job restoring the marble countertops in his house. Following his suggestion, the owner went online to learn more about us on our website. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery, and reading positive reviews from our satisfied customers, she asked for a free assessment by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
Soon after accepting her request, we visited her house and provided the in-home consultation. The owner quickly showed us the affected floor, and we immediately noticed the problems. The stone looked dull and the grout lines had accumulated dirt. As a result, the surface was run-down and unsanitary. With closer inspection, we learned the surface was unsealed. It was necessary to address this problem as soon as possible because the stone was exposed to absorb water, dirt, and grime, which can cause further damage and degradation.
Upon reaching a satisfactory conclusion, we offered a solution. Since we had determined that regular cleaning methods wouldn't be effective, the restoration would require Sir Grout's professional process and top-of-the-line equipment. We proposed a stone sealing service to address all the problems, improve the floor with a revamped appearance, and give the stone a superb coating of protection. The offer met the owner's needs, so she hired us for the job.
When we returned, we were ready to begin the restoration on the floor. Our multi-step process is thorough and ensures the best result. First, we cleaned the surface using our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product won't cause any damage because it doesn't contain harsh chemicals and it's made only with top-quality ingredients. It also offers many other benefits and doesn't leave a residue. After scrubbing out the soiling, we continued with the grout repairs. For this task, we worked on the entire surface using professional diamond saws until we addressed all the damages. When the surface was spotless, we followed with the sealing process.
For this step, we applied a coating of a protective sealer. Our top-notch product blocks the absorption of liquids and wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, reducing deterioration, and making cleaning routines easy and fast. The protective coating also has enhanced properties, boosting the appearance of the surface with a brand-new reflective finish. Our sealers also offer UV defense, minimizing damage in areas subjected to solar impact. As expected, our work was a complete success, the surface had been fully restored, the surface had a beautiful shine, and the stone was protected to endure heavy foot traffic.
With our goal accomplished, it was time to show the results to our client. The owner loved the amazing result. After thanking us, she said our performance surpassed all her expectations, and before we left, she told us she would contact Sir Grout Seattle for any other future projects.
Heavy wear and tear can cause damages and lead to quick deterioration. For this reason, floors that receive constant foot traffic require proper maintenance and care. To keep these difficult areas in top condition, it's essential to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. To reduce the accumulation of dirt, we suggested setting up a weekly cleaning routine. For more effective results, perform this chore using only pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is soap-free and provides excellent results. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets.
We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. The harsh agents in these products can be harmful to the surface. They also leave a foam that seeps into the grout, which can produce stains and discoloration. When applying the cleaning solution, use a clean mop and let the floor dry completely before entering the room again. Avoid cleaning the floor with abrasive tools because they can scratch the stone. While cleaning the area, keep the wet surface free of footsteps.
Restoring your old natural stone surface doesn't have to be impossible or extremely expensive. As you can see in the before and after pictures, it can be easy and fast with Sir Grout Seattle's assistance.
