After a Grout Sealing in Paradise Valley, AZ, This House is Now Beautifully Renewed
June 25, 2018Our next big challenge was to completely transform the appearance of a floor installed in a fireman's residence. This homeowner lived in Paradise Valley and he chose terrazzo tile for the living room floor because it gave the house a unique and spectacular look. He never thought the surface would deteriorate the way it did, but then our grout sealing service in Paradise Valley, AZ, rescued it.
When it comes to choosing materials to install on a floor, there are plenty of options, but few are better than terrazzo tile because it is made by combining cement with types of stones such as granite, marble, and quartz, giving a very attractive and long-lasting option to any client. Furthermore, terrazzo is more durable than most other materials like stone, porcelain, or ceramic, and if it is properly sealed, it can last many years. Additionally, it can be used outside or inside the house.
After our next client chose terrazzo tile for his living room, he was proud of the appearance it gave to the area and to the entire house. Nevertheless, he didn't give the proper maintenance to the surface and he would eventually suffer the consequences.
A couple of months earlier, after a long week of work, he dedicated the weekend—as every weekend—to the regular maintenance of his home, especially to the terrazzo tile floor. In the middle of the cleaning session, he noticed the surface looked odd, but he was not sure what was wrong with it. After he finished the cleanup, he took a rest before it was time for a friend's reunion at his home.
During the reunion, one of his friend noticed something looked odd in the terrazzo tile floor and told him about it. She said the surface looked darker and dirtier than before, which confirmed what he saw earlier that day. The next day, he repeated the cleaning session on the surface with the problem, and after he was done, the outcome was not what he expected it to be—the terrazzo tile and the grout lines were exactly the same. He asked himself if he was using the right cleaners and methods, so he took the initiative to look for more methods online. He found a few new methods, but after applying them, the results were not different than the first time. No matter what he did, he didn't manage to solve the problem by himself. It was time to look for professional help as soon as possible.
The homeowner called his friend and asked her if she knew someone that could help him with the issue, and she told him that she hired the services of a high-quality company called Sir Grout Phoenix to restore her bathroom floor and the results had exceeded her expectation. The man, trusting in his friend's judgment, searched our company online, where he read about all the services we offered in the hard surface restoration industry. In our gallery, he saw photos of surfaces that had similar problems, and the outcome achieved amazed him. What truly convinced him of our reliability was that our company has more locations around the country. He didn't waste any time and called right away to schedule a free in-home consultation.
On the examination day, our team of specialists arrived at the customer's residence to evaluate the floor and give him the best solution possible. They were invited to see the condition of the surface and they immediately recognized the problem when they saw the terrazzo tiles were dark and the grout lines were too dirty. They explained that even if the floor had a regular maintenance over the years, using incorrect products and methods would make the tiles and grout dark and dull. They also told him not to worry because they had the perfect solution to restore the floor— a grout sealing job— which consists in cleaning the entire surface and then sealing it to prevent any damages in the future. The owner agreed and scheduled a date to get the job done.
On the restoration day, our team of professionals returned to the client's home ready to begin the procedure. First, they needed to completely clean the floor in order to seal it, so they applied a right cleaner in the entire surface and also used a high-speed scrubber to get rid of the dirt. They used vapor steam to eliminate any trace of grime from the floor. After this, the terrazzo tiles and the grout lines recovered the beautiful appearance they once had, but there still was one step left to finish the service.
Once the floor was totally clean, our technicians proceeded to seal it using Sir Grout's proprietary sealant—ColorSeal. This product protects the grout lines from dirt, grime, and spills. Also, ColorSeal makes the surface easier to clean and in addition, it recolors and gives the grout a uniform color.
After the procedure was done, our team invited the client to the living room. He was thrilled to see the outcome achieved by our specialists. The terrazzo tiles looked brand-new and made the whole house look updated. He thanked us for the service and mentioned he would recommend our company to anyone experiencing a similar problem.
Before our crew left, they gave him a few maintenance tips. First, they told him to never use soap-based products again when cleaning the floor because they can damage the tiles and grout lines. Instead, he should use pH-neutral non-toxic products. Also, they said that the best method to maintain the surface was using a clean mop and avoid rinsing it in dirty water.
