This Helpless Floor in Tempe, AZ, Could Only Be Restored by Our Professional Tile and Grout Cleaners
August 30, 2017If you can't imagine just how dirty a floor can get, here is a mental picture for you: think of a scab of dust and soap scum covering the surface of your tiles until they begin to change colors. Imagine mold feeding and growing on the soap scum, turning your already dirty tiles into a shade of green that makes you squirm every time you look at it.
This awful mental picture was the real-life description of one of our latest client's floor. He, a busy entrepreneur who was constantly at work, rarely had time to upkeep his home and left in the hands of a housekeeping service he hired once or twice a month. Over time, he let it slip his mind. However, one day he found himself with some free time and lounged around the house in flip-flops, when he noticed that his floor felt a bit sticky. One look at his tiles was all that was needed for him to run to his computer to find professional Tempe tile and grout cleaners to have them clean his floor ASAP.
While browsing Google for a reputed hard surface restoration company in Tempe, AZ, he followed a trail of good reviews to Sir Grout Phoenix's website. After checking out the galleries showcasing the previous work on dirty surfaces, he decided to give us a call and set up a free in-home evaluation, hopeful that we could restore his floor to the way it used to look.
On the appointed date, our team arrived at our client's residence to evaluate the state of the floor and offer the most efficient and time-conscious treatment. The floor was really, really dingy; it had a layer of dirt and mold covering the tiles so much so that the floor appeared a different color. If neglected for any longer, the mold infestation could become dangerous. Our team of tile and grout cleaners recommended a thorough grout cleaning service to get rid of all the dirt. All things considered, our client agreed to the service.
When the cleaning day came, our team returned to our client's residence and got to work right away. We started first by applying a strong in-house designed cleaner to break up the dirt. After waiting long enough, they used high-speed scrubbers to remove the residue, and high-temperature steam cleaners to kill the mold and clean the whole surface. After half a day of hard work, the dirt and mold were finally gone, but there was still something to do: give the floor a final touch with our proprietary ColorSeal—a water-based, non-toxic sealant that helps to recolor grout lines (with a wide variety of colors to choose from) while also making the grout water, stain, mold and mildew resistant.
With the floor already cleaned and sealed, it was time to show the results of our labor to our client. It was a complete turnaround: from a moldy nightmare to a perfectly clean floor that looked recently installed. The client was thrilled, and promised to call again in the future. He assured us it would be sooner than later, to avoid letting the floor get to that state of foulness again.
There are many ways to prevent your floors from ever getting so dirty. The first one is to never mop with a dirty mop and/or dirty water. It should go without saying, but many people forget that mop water needs to be changed regularly to be effective and that the mop needs to be cleaned; otherwise all you do is distribute dirty water over the surface of your floors. Also, remember to never let your floor air dry, because when this water evaporates, it leaves residue and dirt behind.
If you think your floor is in dire need of a thorough cleaning service, then you need the best team around to help you restore it to perfection.
