Hard surfaces require proper maintenance, especially in commercial settings. Tile, grout, and natural stone surfaces deteriorate when exposed to heavy foot traffic, water, harsh chemicals, and other harmful agents. Sir Grout Annapolis's hard surface restoration processes have been tested to be long-lasting, resistant to deterioration, and easy to maintain. Nonetheless, because of the extensive wear and tear your surfaces can receive, signs of degradation can still appear.
For this reason, we have a maintenance program to ensure your surfaces always look beautiful and in top condition. With our periodic maintenance, the following issues will be kept at bay:
The most qualified experts.
The best results.
With our maintenance plans, we can help you prevent the most common problems that can damage your tile, grout, or stone:
Efflorescence occurs when water leaves behind salt deposits on natural stone surfaces. It creates a white, powdery substance on the stone. This is a clear sign of water damage. It shouldn't be left unchecked because it could lead to more time-consuming repairs in the long run. Our professionals can quickly identify efflorescence, clean, and seal the stone to prevent future damages.
Natural stone surfaces are sturdy and reliable but not impervious to deterioration. Dull spots can appear on the surface, spoiling its natural gloss. This is known as etching and it occurs when harsh chemicals or substances with acidic properties are left on the stone for long periods of time. Dull surfaces don't leave a good impression on your customers. Fortunately, we have the right processes, equipment, and products to remove any etches your stone surface might have.
Caulk is an essential component for structural integrity because it seals the joints or seams and prevents water damage. Unfortunately, caulk doesn't last forever. It can develop cracks because of the natural contraction a structure undergoes as seasons and temperatures change. Old and damaged caulk should be replaced immediately. With our maintenance program, we make sure your caulking is always replaced with a high-quality, resilient solution.

Grout can acquire a darkish or brownish color when it is full of dirt, grime, or debris. Also, harsh cleaning products with strong chemicals can cause discoloration in the grout lines.
