A Grout Cleaning Service in Scottsdale, AZ, Gave This Kitchen Floor a Whole New Look
January 10, 2018For this homeowner, her kitchen is like her own sanctuary. This is no surprise, since her favorite hobby is home cooking. Every day she spends several hours in the kitchen, trying out recipes and exploring new flavors. Her cooking is so interesting and delicious that friends and family love it when they are invited on Friday nights to taste her new recipes, and she loves to teach them all the secrets to her unconventional dishes. For this reason, proper cleaning and maintenance of the area, including the kitchen floor, is essential to her.
One day, after realizing the kitchen floor grout was starting to look dingy and unattractive, this home chef hired a grout cleaning service in Scottsdale that she had read about online. That time, our team provided a cleaning service for the entire floor, leaving it not only clean, but also stain-, mold-, and mildew-resistant thanks to Sir Grout's proprietary ColorSeal – a thick water-based, acrylic sealer that closes off grout pores and restores the grout's color. The client was satisfied with her renewed grout, which at the time also matched the kitchen tiles' brownish color.
Nonetheless, as years go by, dirt will inevitably come back. Improper cleaning methods can cause grout to get dingy again. This home chef used to clean the entire kitchen on a daily basis. However, she inadvertently used the wrong products – like a soap-based cleaning agent – which didn't help to successfully remove all the dirt from the floor. So, when she noticed that her kitchen was getting a little grimy again, the homeowner decided that it was time for maintenance, and she called Sir Grout Phoenix, just as she did five years ago. She contacted us and explained her case.
Our team clearly recalled the grout cleaning service they had provided five years ago and were happy the client decided to trust in our services again. They went to the home chef's residence that same week and examined the floor; dirt had evidently come back, but it was nothing a maintenance service couldn't solve. Our well-trained specialists informed the client that although Sir Grout's processes are designed to last, the grout still requires periodic, deep maintenance to ensure it remains in optimum condition. Fortunately, the ColorSeal process that was carried out five years ago would make the cleaning process much simpler and quicker.
The homeowner authorized the maintenance plan so the service started the next day. As our specialists expected, cleaning was much easier thanks to the previously performed ColorSeal service. Our specialists removed the dirt right off the sealer, which is easier than removing it out of unsealed grout. In the blink of an eye, the kitchen floor looked just like it did after the original service.
Once the process was done, our team interviewed the homeowner to learn about her cleaning methods and kindly recommended new strategies to prevent future dirt buildup. Firstly, they advised her to use a soap-less, pH-neutral cleaner to preserve the renewed appearance of the grout. Moreover, they strongly recommended her to always use a clean mop and to never put a dirty one back into a bucket full of cleaning solution when mopping the floor. Finally, the team of specialists advised the homeowner to always dry the floor with a clean towel instead of air drying it; while moisture evaporates, dirt does not.
