Mercer Island Grout Sealing Professionals Revive This Kitchen's Ceramic Floors
October 21, 2021A dirty floor can instantly kill the appeal of a brand-new home, and this is the kind of scenario that no real estate agent wants to witness while on the job. While getting ready for a weekend open house, a Mercer real estate agent noticed a series of unflattering stains on the kitchen's ceramic floors. His profession had helped him develop an eye for structural damage, a skill that he had used to oversee repairs in other residential properties. He soon realized that professional assistance would be needed to deal with the level of discoloration displayed on the floors.
He had just started looking for Mercer Island Grout Sealing services when a colleague recommended contacting Sir Grout Seattle. The real estate agent went online to look through the information on our website and was pleased to find that our expertise extended to the restoration of ceramic surfaces.
After seeing photos of our previous jobs, the client was sure that Sir Grout's methods would match the quality that potential homeowners expected to find during the upcoming showing. He filled out our "Request a Quote" form to request a free in-home inspection, and our specialists got back to him in no time. The end result surpassed our client's expectations and took the spotlight during the entire week the house was on show. Let us walk you through the process.
A few days after the client reached out to us, our crew visited the house to take a closer look at the floors. Upon evaluation, they found some instances of wear and tear, as well as an overall dull look that was taking over the ceramic. Moreover, the grout was in need of sealant, as shown by the countless stains covering the grout lines. While it's true that sanded grout is durable, regular cleaning sessions will do little to prevent dirt and residues from settling on them when there's no sealant to protect its pores. After identifying the source of the problem, we explained the situation to the client. We immediately requested an appointment to get started with the restoration process.
Our team was back at the house according to schedule, bringing the most advanced equipment to work on both the ceramic and the grout. They began by cleaning the entire floor's surface using a pH-neutral cleaner and used a high-speed scrubber to remove all the dirt that had stuck to the grout lines. Our exclusive surface cleaner is free of harsh components, and this sets it apart from generic formulas that gradually damage the surfaces after repeated use. Once our specialists made sure there was no residue left on the floor, they applied a steam cleaner to complete the sanitizing process.
At this point, the grout was all ready for sealing. To complete this step, our crew applied Sir Grout's ColorSeal, a high-quality acrylic-based sealant that keeps the grout lines safe against all sorts of external elements. The ColorSeal also serves to enhance the surface's esthetic appeal because it's available in various colors to match the tone of the tiles and make the whole surface stand out. By the end of the process, the floor looked as good as new, and its sleek appearance caught our client's eye right away.
Keeping in mind that the house would see a lot of foot traffic in the near future, so we brought up some suggestions to help the real estate agent upkeep the floor's immaculate look. First off, we recommended using pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This way, there would be no damage on the tiles and no toxic residues putting people at risk. After all, few things are more dangerous than chemical substances settling anywhere near a home's kitchen. The client took notes of all our recommendations, so the floors remained spotless through more than 30 showings that took place in the course of the following week.
