Our Grout Sealing Services Drastically Changed Two Bathrooms in Gilbert, AZ for the Better
February 19, 2019
For most people, grout is simply a nightmare. They believe grout can stain easily and is very hard to clean. A customer from Gilbert, AZ had this belief. Initially, she made sure to clean both bathrooms in her home every week, but this task became harder over time. The homeowner started noticing how the grout lines in both bathroom floors kept deteriorating, giving them a dirty look. She tried cleaning the grout lines with products she found online and even some homemade recipes, but none of them seemed to give her the desired outcome.
Feeling frustrated, the homeowner went online and searched for advice. After browsing several websites, she found grout is likely to wear down if it's not sealed. Most websites suggested contacting professionals to have grout restored. For this reason, she searched locally for grout sealing services in Gilbert, AZ
and found our website within the top results. She took time to browse Sir Grout Phoenix's website, and after seeing some of the testimonials and reviews from previous customers, she decided to call us for a free in-home consultation.
On the appointed date, our team of experts arrived at the customer's home to assess the situation in both bathrooms. They noticed the floor's grout in both cases had discolored and accumulated dirt in several places. Our experts gave the client a brief explanation of why the grout had an awful appearance. Grout is a porous mixture, which is why it's necessary to give it proper maintenance.
The best way to keep grout in good shape is to clean it once a week with a pH-neutral cleaner. These cleaners will not damage grout, unlike acidic products and homemade recipes. In her desperation, the homeowner had used an acidic solution which not only wore out the grout lines, it also discolored them. Acidic cleaners can also have a negative effect on the grout's sealant, causing the sealant to disappear over time and leaving the grout lines exposed to external agents.
Despite having a worn-out look, the damage on the grout of both floors was not irreversible. This led our specialists to offer exactly what she needed, a well performed grout sealing service with our proprietary sealant, ColorSeal. The homeowner was relieved to hear that, so she agreed to the offer and scheduled another appointment to have the job done.
On the day of the job, our team began the restoration process of both bathrooms. First, they soaked the floor with a pH-neutral grout-safe cleaner with antimicrobial properties to loosen the embedded dirt. This cleaner ensures the well-being of any surface while providing protection against harmful microorganisms for up to one week after it has been applied. Second, the techs used a high-speed scrubber to remove the grime from both floors. Some sections of the floors had accumulated too much grime, so it was necessary to use a vapor steam cleaner to remove it.
Our team made sure the areas were clean before starting the third and final step, which is the application of our flagship sealant, ColorSeal. This is an acrylic sealer that closes off the pores on the grout to protect it from damage. It also restores the grout's color, which gives a beautiful clean-looking appearance to the customer's bathrooms.
Once they were done with the grout sealing process, our experts showed the customer the results. She was content with her fresh-looking bathroom floors. The homeowner said she had made the right choice when she reached out to Sir Grout Phoenix to have both floors restored.
Before leaving, our team gave the homeowner a few tips to keep the bathroom floors in good shape. First, they recommended cleaning the floors once a week with a pH-neutral cleaner such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. This cleaner is safe for tile and grout and contains antimicrobial agents that keep your surfaces protected. Second, they suggested avoiding homemade recipes and acidic solutions because they can damage the surfaces and wear out their sealant. Finally, they advised her to use a dry cloth to wipe away excess moisture. This will help prevent water seepage and mold growth.
