Our Team of Tile and Grout Cleaners Refreshed This Beautiful Ceramic Kitchen Floor in Souderton, PA
November 28, 2018Moving into a new house often represents a new beginning filled with opportunities, but it can also be a stressful experience. It usually takes a couple of days to settle into your new home and reorganize it to fit your taste. Sometimes it is necessary to perform home improvements that go beyond simple tasks like rearranging furniture. When a couple first moved to their new home in Souderton, PA they immediately fell in love with the ceramic tile floor in the kitchen. What they didn't know is that the floor hadn't been given proper maintenance before they arrived.
Over time, the tiles and grout lines deteriorated and gave the room an unappealing appearance. The homeowners cleaned the floor regularly, so they didn't understand the problem. They went online to look for advice and found that floors in high-traffic areas must be kept sealed to ensure they remain in good condition. They also found that sealants should be applied only after the surface has been fully cleaned, so they searched for tile and grout cleaners in Souderton. After finding our website within the top results and browsing the picture gallery, they called to schedule a free in-home evaluation.
When the day of the consultation arrived, our experts went to the customer's residence to inspect the kitchen. As soon as they walked in, they noticed the deteriorated floor. Dirt had discolored the grout to the point where it looked black. Our techs poured some water on the grout lines to test the sealant. The water immediately seeped into the grout lines. This meant the grout lines had not been sealed in a long time, leaving them exposed to harmful external agents.
To solve the problem, our experts offered the homeowners a tile and grout cleaning service. They also offered a sealing procedure with our flagship sealant, ColorSeal. Not only will this sealant ensure the grout lines remain in good shape, it will also restore their color. The couple immediately accepted our proposal and scheduled another appointment for the job.
On the day of the job, our experts began the cleaning process by soaking the floor with a pH-neutral tile and grout cleaner. Not only is this cleaner safe for tile and grout, it also contains agents that can help inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms for an extended period of time after it has been applied. Next, they deep cleaned the tiles and grout lines with a high-speed scrubber. They also used a vapor steam cleaner in some hard to clean areas.
After they cleaned the floor, they carefully applied our proprietary sealant, ColorSeal. This is a cutting-edge sealer that has been especially designed for grout lines. It completely seals the grout's pores, protecting it against dirt, water, mold, mildew, and other external agents. ColorSeal also comes in different colors. The customers chose beige to match the light brown color of their tiles.
Once the process was done, our team let the homeowners see the results. They were amazed by the surface's transformation. Their kitchen now looked cleaner than it did when they first moved in. They thanked our team and promised to call back for maintenance.
Even though ColorSeal makes grout more resistant to damage, it still needs proper maintenance. Our experts gave the couple two care tips to ensure their kitchen floor remained in top condition. First, they suggested cleaning once a week with a soap-less, pH-neutral cleaner such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This cleaner is safe for tile and grout. It also helps prolong the lifespan of your sealant. Second, they recommended wiping away any spills or excess moisture with a dry cloth as soon as they happened.
