Newtown Grout Sealing Experts Restore This GMC Facility in Newtown, PA
September 29, 2021
Hard surface restorers from Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ recently visited a dealership's professional office building in Newtown, PA, to seal the property's ceramic tile flooring. The owners came to us for aid since they didn't like the way the floors looked. After so many years of foot traffic, the surfaces had deteriorated to the point where they seemed dirty no matter what cleaning techniques they employed.
The property manager had been employing floor stripping and waxing services on a regular basis as part of a maintenance plan for the building's tiled surfaces, but the services weren't cutting it. The floors remained unclean and the grout cracked despite the stripping, and it was also expensive. The owners did not want their building to be associated with this image. After seeing that the dirty grout and stains didn't go away, they sought out a Newtown Grout Sealing
company that specialized in commercial services for large office buildings. They wanted a solution that would increase the floors' resistance to daily wear and tear while also making cleaning and maintenance easier.
The owners looked at our before and after picture gallery
and scrolled through our website for a few minutes to learn more about our services. They were blown away by the grout restoration work we'd done on ceramic-tiled surfaces, which was just what they were searching for. They were confident in our ability to restore the grout inside their office, so they contacted us to schedule a free on-site evaluation.
On the scheduled day, our team arrived at the facility to assess the situation. After a comprehensive assessment, our team determined that the grout was cracked and discolored due to heavy foot traffic and poor maintenance. Grout must be taken care of properly if it is to survive and maintain a consistent color. Grout staining can occur as a result of situations such as using incorrect sealing, everyday wear and tear, bad cleaning methods, and the use of harmful products.
The owners inquired as to whether the grout lines needed to be replaced. Even though the grout was discolored, our experts explained that the damage was primarily on the surface, therefore scraping them out was unnecessary. Our technicians would clean the grout and seal it with ColorSeal, our proprietary sealant, to address the problem. This would not only restore the grout lines' color, but it would also render them impenetrable to dangerous external agents. The proposed solution was accepted and a date was scheduled for the procedure.
The issue with commercial floors is that they are difficult to keep clean. As a result of the massive foot traffic, they tend to deteriorate more quickly than usual. Consequently, they require more cleaning and maintenance than hard surfaces in a typical home. Furthermore, they require regular sealing — when tiled floors are not sealed, all types of filthy liquids or spills will be absorbed by the grout, resulting in a dark and unpleasant appearance. Cleaning also becomes a huge effort because the filth becomes entrenched and is nearly hard to remove using conventional ways.
Later in the week, our hard surface experts returned to the customer's office to properly seal the ceramic tiles and grout. Our team began by soaking the ceramic tile surfaces in a pH-neutral cleaner that is safe for both tile and grout. This cleaner also contains enhanced ingredients that help prevent the formation of germs, mold, and mildew. Our technicians then used a high-speed scrubber to remove the cleaner from the tiles and grout lines. This was done in the bathrooms, the hallways, and the entrance. The surface must always be as clean as possible for ColorSeal to adhere to the grout correctly.
Our team began the sealing procedure once they finished cleaning. ColorSeal, a proprietary acrylic-based sealer from Sir Grout Bucks PA and West NJ was used to accomplish this. This substance seals the pores in the grout, protecting it from water, dirt, stains, mold, and mildew. ColorSeal is available in a number of colors to match the color of any tile.
The procedure went off without a hitch. The owners were really satisfied with the outcome. Before leaving, our crew provided the owners a few suggestions on how to keep the floor in good shape. While ColorSeal makes grout lines easier to maintain, regular cleaning measures are still required to extend the life of the grout lines. As a result, our technicians suggested cleaning the surfaces once a week with a pH-neutral cleaner, like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
Unlike most cleaning products, ours does not contain acidic ingredients that can harm tile and eat away at grout. Wiping away any extra moisture with a dry cloth was also recommended by our team. Allowing shampoo, soap, water, or other external chemicals to linger on the floor for long periods of time can cause harm to tile surfaces. The floors and walls will stay in good shape as long as the owners follow these easy guidelines. Our clients expressed gratitude for our technicians' recommendations and stated that they would suggest our services to their friends and relatives.
