In Just One Day, a Grout Cleaning Service Increased the Value of This House for Sale in Chalfont, PA
December 28, 2016Few people are aware of how much a grout cleaning service can increase the value of any property. This homeowner was in the process of putting her house up for sale when she heard about a grout cleaning service in Chalfont, Pennsylvania. She had lived in the residence ever since she moved to the city eight years ago, but all of the sudden, a new job opportunity overseas was presented to her, and she couldn't refuse it. Therefore, she decided that even though she loved her house and her quiet neighborhood, it was time to move on and start a new adventure. In short, she had to put her residence up for sale.
Before putting the house up for sale, she hired a home inspector to assess the property's condition. The examiner mentioned a series of improvements she could perform for her bathrooms, like changing all the furniture and replacing the faded tiles, but this was just too expensive for her limited budget – she couldn't afford those expenses, so she gave up on the project.
Nevertheless, when talking to a friend about the problem, she was told about Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ's hard surface restoration services. Since she was curious, she went online and found our website, where she read all the customer reviews and saw the before and after pictures from our jobs. What she saw encouraged her to give us a call and schedule a free, in-home consultation, hoping we could provide a service that would refresh her bathrooms at a fair price and help increase the value of her home.
Our team of hard surface restorers arrived the same day to inspect the rooms. Both bathrooms were small yet lovely: one had a cream-colored, alcove bathtub that matched the floor and wall tiles, while the other one was a little bigger and had a shower. However, years of foot-traffic and lack of proper cleaning and regular maintenance had dirtied the grout to the point where it looked very grimy and unattractive. The Chalfont resident told us her story and what she wanted for her bathrooms; fortunately, our team had the perfect solution for her: grout cleaning plus a recaulking service.
The homeowner agreed with our team on the services and the price, so our experts came back the following day to start the job. They began the cleaning process by applying Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ's special non-toxic, soapless tile and grout cleaner to loosen the embedded dirt. Then, they used a high-speed, gentle scrubber to deep clean every inch of the bathrooms. To clean and restore the grout, they applied Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ's proprietary ColorSeal, which not only recolored the grout to a uniform color, but also made all the grout lines stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant. Old caulk was also replaced with Stainmaster Epoxy Grout, which is a two-part epoxy product that won't crack or peel and will resist mold. Our team finished the service by applying Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ's Tile Armor sealant over the entire shower.
The client was amazed by the remarkable results – both bathrooms not only looked cleaner, but also brighter and more attractive. She even regretted that she was going to leave the residence now that her bathrooms had such a lovely appearance.
Even though our experts knew that the house was going to be sold soon, they gave the Chalfont resident some grout and tile cleaning recommendations so she could take proper care of her next residence. They advised her to thoroughly inspect the condition of her future home's floors and to have a cleaning done promptly if needed. Also, they mentioned that a grout and tile sealing service would be great to protect the floor from stains, mold, and mildew. The homeowner later called us to tell us that she had sold the house at an excellent price thanks mostly to the bathrooms – the new owners loved them!
