A Tile Sealing in Doylestown, PA is Exactly What This Kitchen Floor Needed to Achieve an Impeccable Appearance
July 28, 2020Ceramic tiles are a fantastic choice for kitchen areas. Not only can this type of flooring make your kitchen appear wider, it can also facilitate its maintenance. There is, however, a big downside to ceramic tiles in high-traffic areas. When the grout lines get dirty and dark, they can ruin the overall appearance of the surface.
A homeowner from Doylestown, PA recently contacted us after trying several cleaning methods on his kitchen floor. These methods involved using products and homemade recipes that had been recommended to him, but none of them yielded the results he had hoped for. Concerned, he decided to look for professional help. He went online and searched for a reputable tile sealing in Doylestown. He found our website in the top search results. After browsing our picture gallery and watching a few video testimonials, he called to request a free in-home assessment.
On the day of the consultation, we finally got to see the surface the client had described over the phone. It was a beautiful ceramic tile floor. Unfortunately, a mixture of dirt and stains covered most of the grout lines on the surface and gave it an unappealing appearance. Years of foot traffic had also taken a toll on the tiles, making them appear dull.
In conclusion, the surface was in dire need of a touch-up. Fortunately, we had the necessary tools and expertise to restore it. We offered the client a tile and grout cleaning and sealing service to renew the surface. To seal the grout lines we would use our proprietary sealant ColorSeal. The customer accepted our proposal and chose a date for the job.
We went back to the client's home a few days later to perform the service. We began by soaking the kitchen floor with a pH-neutral non-toxic cleaner that's safe for tile and grout. This cleaner also contains enhanced properties that inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and microorganisms. After most of the dirt came loose, we used a high-speed scrubber to extract the remaining dirt from the surface. We also used a steam cleaner to sanitize the joints surrounding the counters. We did it to ensure any trace of food waste or any other substance was completely eradicated.
Once we finished cleaning, we thoroughly dried the floor and repaired the damaged grout. To finish, we coated the grout lines with our flagship sealant ColorSeal. This is an acrylic-based sealant that shuts off the grout's pores, protecting it against water, spills, stains, mold, and mildew. It also comes in a variety of colors. The client chose white to make the tiles stand out.
The outcome exceeded the homeowner's expectations. He was amazed by how clean the grout lines looked, and loved the kitchen's new, impeccable appearance. He thanked us for a job well done and said he would recommend our services to his friends and family.
Before leaving, we gave the client a few care tips to help him keep the floor in its current condition. We first recommended cleaning the floor once a week using a soap-less pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike most store-bought products and homemade recipes, this cleaner contains all the necessary ingredients to preserve tile and grout. We also advised the client to keep the floor as dry as possible. Food spills and excess moisture often lead to deterioration, so it's best to avoid them completely.
