Our Grout Sealing Specialists Brought This Beautiful Floor in Monroe Back to Life
May 27, 2022
A homeowner in Monroe felt helpless as dirt started covering the floors in one of the most active parts of her home. Basically, the floors in most of her living area were made of beautiful Saltillo Mexican tile. This part of the house was usually reserved for guests and social gatherings, but the homeowner and her family also liked to settle by the backdoor at the end of a long day. They were all very upset when their combined cleaning efforts did nothing to remove even an ounce of the dirt that had adhered to the floor.
The grout was the most affected, with nearly all the grout lines looking gray and unattractive. Luckily, she didn't let the problem go on for much longer and set out to find a Monroe grout sealing
company soon after all the household members had tried cleaning the floors.
When the homeowner went online looking for restoration services in the area, she found Sir Grout Seattle at the top of her search results. She perused our picture gallery
, and the quality of our results left the best impression. After checking our credentials and general information, the homeowner filled out the "Request a Quote" form to ask for an in-home evaluation.
Following her request, our specialists visited her home a few days later to look at the floor. They saw that the grout lines were completely covered in dirt, leaving no way to discern their original color. The floor also looked dull and lifeless, so the client worried about having accidentally deteriorated the tiles during her cleaning sessions. Our specialists told her there was no permanent damage but also explained that the floor's appearance had a lot to do with the exposure to harsh cleaners that only worsened the effects of wear and tear on hard surfaces. Soap-based cleaners can trap dirt on the grout pores, and bleach can eventually discolor Saltillo tiles in an irreparable way. The best course of action was to conduct a deep cleaning service on the floor and apply sealant on both grout and tiles. After listening to our techs' assessment, the client didn't wait to schedule a new appointment.
Our specialists came back as scheduled to work on the floor. They started with a coat of pH-neutral cleaner all over the floor's surface and ran a swinging machine multiple times until all the dirt was removed. Our product guarantees the best results to optimize hard surface maintenance. No matter how much traffic you get on the floor, our cleaner removes all traces of soil, mold, water, and other substances without compromising the tile surface. It also makes it easier to remove the dirt that gets stuck to the grout, saving homeowners time and effort in the process.
For the next step, our specialists applied Sir Grout's ColorSeal on all the grout lines, recoloring the grout in a natural-looking gray that worked well with the tiles' warm tones. Our unique sealant is the best protection to reduce the number of stains that grout normally gets, warding off dirt, fungi, mold, mildew, and other external elements for a long time. It is the best asset to keep the grout looking nice and spotless through all daily activities.
At this point, the restoration was almost complete. Our specialists applied a coat of tile sealant on the rest of the floor and buzzed the entire surface using a high-speed machine. Then, they called the client back into the living area to check the results. As expected, she was delighted, praising our work on the grout and admiring how well the grout lines looked with the newly-cleaned tiles.
Before leaving the client's house, our specialists shared additional cleaning tips to help her maintain her Saltillo tile floor. First, they recommended using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
to clean the floors and other hard surfaces.
Our product enhances the effectiveness of household cleaning while removing many of the risks that come with generic cleaners. It doesn't discolor the surface or wear down the sealant's protection, no matter how many times you use it. Moreover, it won't spread toxic fumes that could endanger everyone. The room is connected to the backyard, so our specialists remarked that opening the windows and doors a few hours a day would help keep the area well ventilated. Another way to stop the growth of mold and mildew is to clean any wet spots with a mop, a towel, or a terry cloth. The client welcomed all our recommendations and promised to recommend our services to all her friends and relatives.
