Manhattan Grout Sealing: Professional Process to Enhance and Shield Damaged Hard Surfaces
April 16, 2019Damaged grout can give tile surfaces an unsightly appearance. For this reason, it is important to keep this vulnerable component in top condition and fully protected. However, grout maintenance is challenging and time consuming. This task is best left in the skillful hands of professionals like Sir Grout Manhattan because successful and safe grout restoration requires high-end equipment and years of experience.
A couple from Midtown Manhattan was having a difficult time with the maintenance of their kitchen and bathroom. No matter how much they tried, the grout lines remained dirty. Nevertheless, they were determined to solve the issue. They read some guides and tried DIY cleaning methods. Unfortunately, nothing worked. The owners were frustrated with the unsuccessful cleaning attempts, so he decided to look for professional assistance.
The couple heard about our Manhattan grout sealing service from a friend. They went online to check out our website and get more information about us. After browsing the pictures on the "Before and After" gallery, they read testimonials from our previous satisfied customers. Everything they saw and read certified the success and efficiency of our restoration processes. Convinced we could help them, they called us and requested a free in-home consultation.
A few days later, we arrived to assess the surfaces. The problems were immediately noticeable. Over the years, the grout lines accumulated dirt and grime. As a result, the floors had acquired an unclean appearance. We told the owners that heavy wear and tear and improper cleaning methods had led to this deterioration. We also learned that the grout lines were not properly sealed. We explained that unsealed grout is exposed to all sorts of damage from external agents because it can easily absorb dirt, liquids, and cleaner residue. We finished the evaluation and informed the owner that the surfaces required our professional treatment because conventional cleaning wouldn't be effective.
For the solution, we proposed a grout sealing service. With this procedure, we would spruce-up the surface and give the grout lines an enhanced look. We assured the owners their bathroom and kitchen floor would have a wonderful new appearance when we were finished. They accepted our offer and hired us.
We returned to our clients' house to perform the grout sealing process. We needed to address the damage in the bathroom and the kitchen floor, so we decided to start in the bathroom. To get rid of all the dirt and grime, we used our exclusive pH-neutral product and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaner won't cause any damage because it is soap-free and doesn't leave residue. Additionally, it has an improved formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to an extended period of time after application. Once the surface was spotless, we were ready to fix the grout. We repaired the grout lines and removed all the blemishes. After that, we began the sealing process.
We applied ColorSeal, our high-end sealant. This high-end product closes off water absorption and protects the surface against dirt, grime, and all other harmful external agents. Thanks to its special properties, maintenance isn't a problem because it makes cleaning routines easier and faster. Furthermore, the owners can choose from a large selection of colors and match the grout with the tiles, improving the appearance of the entire surface. We continued by working on the kitchen floor. The process was basically the same and we achieved full restoration. When we finished, everything looked fantastic and the surfaces were fully protected to endure heavy daily use.
We invited our clients to see the results. The couple was amazed when they saw how beautiful the bathroom and the kitchen looked. They were extremely pleased because the process had been successful, cost-effective, and fast. After thanking us, they said the quality of our work was impressive, and from that point on, they would recommend our service to their family, friends, and neighbors.
Before leaving, we took some time to teach our clients how to perform safer and more effective maintenance. We recommended setting up a weekly cleaning routine. For this task, use only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product has an ingredients that can help that provide protection against bacteria and fungi. Furthermore, it is non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We told them it is important to avoid using soap-based or acidic cleaners. These products leave residue and contain harsh agents that can deteriorate the grout and stain the tiles. Make sure your product is free of these properties
For the bathroom, we recommended keeping it dry and well ventilated. This is important because mold and mildew thrive in damp environments. Allow the moisture to flow freely by leaving the door ajar or a window open, especially after hot showers. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth rag. Squeegeeing after every use is a great option to keep the bathroom free of dirt particles.
