This Tile Floor in Phoenix's Desert Ridge Neighborhood Was Revamped with a Grout Cleaning and Recoloring
July 17, 2017For this homeowner, his restoration story began at a dinner party held by his friends, who lived nearby in the Desert Ridge neighborhood of Phoenix. He had visited their house before on several occasions, but this time there was something different about the dining room – it looked surprisingly clean and tidy. He couldn't figure out why it looked different, until he noticed the glossy, renewed tile floor that enhanced the whole room.
Wondering what they had done with the place, he asked his friends. It was then when the hosts told him about a grout cleaning service in Phoenix that they found online and hired to renew the dining room floor. He didn't know that such a service even existed or that grout needed periodic maintenance, but he was amazed by how clean the room looked thanks to that service. A family dinner was coming soon, and this year would be his debut as his family's dinner host. Therefore, he thought that his place could benefit from that kind of procedure.
So, at home, while looking at his living room floor's dirty and unattractive grout, the Desert Ridge resident decided to contact Sir Grout Phoenix for a free, in-home consultation, as recommended by his friends. Our team listened to the story and was glad to hear that former clients had referred him to our cleaning services. We were eager to help, so we set up an appointment for that same week.
On the day of the consultation, our specialists started to examine the floor's condition, and after a thorough inspection, they realized why the homeowner wanted a grout cleaning service – years of poor maintenance and damaging cleaning products had deteriorated the living room tiles, not to mention the grout, making them look dull and dirty, respectively. Fortunately for the client, a grout cleaning service would leave the whole floor as neat as a pin. The client agreed, so our team began the restoration the following day.
To start the cleaning service, our well-trained specialists applied a non-toxic, pH-neutral cleaner to the living room floor to loosen the embedded dirt, and then they used a high-speed scrubber. As the procedure started to work, the floor's color began to change. Once the grout was deep cleaned, our technicians machine buffed the area for a polished, revamped look. Also, they applied our proprietary ColorSeal to make each grout line water-, stain-, mold-, and mildew-resistant while recoloring the grout to make it match the tiles' shade. The result? An attractive floor that would surely amaze the homeowner's future guests in upcoming gatherings.
Additionally, to preserve the floor's new look, our specialists recommended the homeowner to never use dirty mops to clean the surface. Moreover, they strongly advised him to avoid the use of any kind of soap-based cleaning products, since those leave a sticky residue that traps dirt, dulls the surface, and promotes mildew growth. Instead, he should use a pH-neutral, soap-less floor cleaner and follow this easy, three-step cleaning process: apply the solution liberally to tiles and grout, let it sit for 5 minutes, and then just mop as usual. This process should be performed once a week. Daily, quick sweeping or vacuuming might also help to prevent buildup of dirt and debris before they can become embedded in the tile or grout.
