A Hallway Floor in Edgewater Looks Gorgeous Thanks to Our Tile and Grout Cleaners
December 12, 2023The tile floor of a large house in Edgewater, MD, had caused a lot of grief for its homeowners. A long hallway connected almost every room on the ground floor, making its surface one of the most active parts of the house. There was no way to avoid foot traffic, but the homeowners had always managed to keep most of the dirt off the floor. That changed in a couple of months' time as soil and grime slowly darkened the grout lines. The tiles didn't fare much better, with large marks running along the entire length of the hallway.
One of the homeowners brought out the idea of hiring a restoration company. Cleaning products did nothing to solve the problem, and trying to conceal the stains was out of the question in such a visible area. When he started looking into his options, he figured that it would take him at least a few days to find the most suitable service. To his surprise, the solution became obvious as soon as he discovered Sir Grout Annapolis, and his family also agreed when they got to read more about our tile and grout cleaners in Edgewater. The homeowner contacted us online and our techs quickly responded to his request for an in-home evaluation.
On the scheduled date, they arrived at his home in Edgewater, MD, and immediately started to inspect the hallway floor. They found that the grout sealant had worn off almost entirely, leaving dirt and different substances to slip into the pores until they got embedded in the surface. The ceramic also had traces of embedded dirt, and the faded color made the stains much more evident. While going over the causes of the problem, our techs explained that exposure to generic cleaners often results in grout damage and discoloration. There's no shortage of harsh ingredients in most of the cleaners you see every day, and repeated use only adds to the deterioration of high-traffic surfaces. Despite all of this, the homeowners never slacked off in their weekly cleaning and it showed. There was a lot of dirt to get through but no lasting damage to the surface. Our techs were confident that they could complete the restoration in a single visit so they put their services at the client's disposal. Grateful for their professionalism, the homeowner took the chance to schedule a new appointment with our crew.
As per his request, our specialists returned to the house a few days later. The first step of the restoration was cleaning, so they ran a high-speed scrubbing machine several times after soaking the hallway floor with a special cleaner. Our product acts quickly, making it easier to remove stains even when they've been stuck to the grout pores for a long time. When our techs eliminated all the dark spots on the surface, they got ready to recolor the grout.
For this part of the process, they applied a powerful sealant to all the grout lines. Our amazing ColorSeal never fails to restore the grout's beauty, no matter how many stains it's gathered over time. On top of repelling all sorts of external elements, this sealant is also available in multiple colors to match any shade. Our experts had asked for the clients' preference beforehand, so they knew to use white on the grout. Then, they buffed the tiles to make the hallway glow.
The effect was undeniable, from the shiny tiles to the nice color contrast created by the newly-restored grout. The client and his family were delighted by the results, and they took their time admiring each section of the hallway floor. They also promised to recommend Sir Grout Annapolis to everyone they knew after thanking our techs for an excellent service.
Grout maintenance is always tricky when it comes to high-traffic surfaces. For this reason, our experts shared some additional cleaning tips before leaving the client's home. They told him that pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner go a long way to simplify household chores. Our product is effective against grime, soil, spills, and other stains, removing marks without leaving anything behind. To make the job easier, our crew also recommended to use a clean mop, a towel or a terry cloth when scrubbing off the dirt. This would help our cleaner's performance without harming the tiles' delicate surface. Our final recommendation was to open the windows whenever the air became stale. Proper indoor ventilation is key to counter the effect of dampness and it reduces the chances of mold and mildew in areas that usually go unnoticed through a household's daily routine.
