Our Grout Cleaning Specialists in Manhattan, NY, Rescued This Bathroom and Kitchen from Dirt and Grime
June 21, 2018Ceramic tile is one of the most commonly used types of material because it can be installed in almost any environment; as with any other hard tile surface, ceramic tile has its advantages and disadvantages. Our next customer, a married woman living in Manhattan, NY, had no idea about the cons of having this type of surface, and when she became desperate about an issue she had, she found our grout cleaning specialists in Manhattan, NY.
This homeowner was expecting her family who planned to stay a couple of days for a wedding celebration, so a few weeks earlier, she began to prepare the house for their arrival. She started cleaning the entire house, but she was surprised to see that the kitchen and bathroom floors, two of the most important areas of her home, were not in perfect condition. She wasted no more time and decided to do something about it right away.
The woman took the initiative and bought different products to clean the surfaces. She also searched for other methods online to use during the cleanup. Unfortunately, the outcome was the same every time. She was running out of time, so she asked one of her relatives if they had had this kind of problem in the past and that was when she heard about Sir Grout Manhattan. Her relative mentioned that hiring our services was the solution to restore his bathroom floor and assured her the results completely exceeded his expectation. He also said that if she needed to know more information about us, she could find it on our website.
While browsing through it, she read the positive reviews our company had, and she saw different pictures of amazing outcomes achieved by our technicians in our gallery section. She was totally convinced that we were the best choice to restore the damaged surfaces, so she filled out the "Request a Quote" form on the page to set up a date for an in-home evaluation.
A few days later, our team of specialists came to the client's home ready to assess the surfaces. The woman invited them to examine the kitchen floor first, where they could identify the problem immediately—the ceramic tiles looked colorless and the gout lines had accumulated dirt. They also evaluated the shower and saw the same problem. They explained that using improper cleaners would cause the tiles and grout to become damaged. Our professionals offered a complete grout cleaning on both areas to solve the issue. The customer accepted the offer and scheduled a date for the restoration.
On the day set, our technicians came back to the house to get the job done. They started the process by cleaning the kitchen floor, and to do so they applied a proper cleaner and let it soak on the surface for a couple of minutes. They used a high-speed scrubber to eliminate the dirt and grime from the ceramic tiles and grout lines. Once the kitchen floor was clean, our team continued the process and it was time to seal the entire surface using our proprietary sealant—ColorSeal. They explained that this product protects the grout from grime, dirt and stain, making it easier to clean. Moreover, ColorSeal recolors the grout lines, allowing the client to match them with the tiles.
The grout cleaning process was repeated on the shower, and after removing the dirt from the surface, they used vapor steam in the hard-to-reach areas to ensure that the mold and mildew were eliminated. Finally, they used ColorSeal to protect the shower grout from future damages.
Once the service was done, our specialists let the homeowner see her just-renewed surfaces. When she entered the kitchen, she was thrilled with the appearance it had. She was also invited to the shower and she was happy to see the outcome achieved by our experts. She was now ready to receive her family. She thanked us for the work and mentioned that she would recommend our company to anyone experiencing a similar problem.
Before leaving, our crew gave her a few maintenance tips to keep both the kitchen and the shower looking beautiful. First, they gave her recommendations for the kitchen: never use acid-based cleaners. Instead, she should always use pH-neutral, non-toxic cleaners to not damage the tiles and grout. Also, they suggested drying the surface using a dry terry cloth to remove dirty water and cleaner residue.
The recommendations to maintain the shower were similar, adding one more: keep the bathroom well-ventilated to avoid mold and mildew problems in the future.
