A Grout Cleaning Job in Dallas, TX Gave This Bathroom Floor a Great, New Appearance
August 27, 2019
Dingy grout can drastically change the appearance of a surface. For this reason, a homeowner in Dallas, TX contacted us to have the grout lines on his bathroom floor restored. He had tried cleaning the fixtures several times, but it looked as if only a professional service could fix the problem. One day, after yet another unsuccessful cleaning session, he went online and searched for reliable grout cleaning experts in Dallas, TX. He found our website in the top search results. After he saw the positive feedback we have received from previous customers, he called to schedule a free in-home consultation.
On the appointed day, we arrived at the client's home ready to assess the bathroom floor. We immediately noticed the grout lines on the floor were very dirty and stained. Certain sections of the floor had dirt embedded deep in the grout. Fortunately, the damage wasn't severe so it wasn't necessary to perform any major repairs. We assured the client that a thorough grout cleaning service would be enough to restore the color of the grout lines. We also offered to seal the grout with our proprietary sealant, Tile Armor, to keep them protected. The customer agreed to the service and set up an appointment for the service.
A few days later, we returned to the customer's house to perform the cleaning and sealing procedure. First, we soaked the floor with a pH-neutral cleaner that contains antimicrobial properties. Not only is this cleaning solution safe for grout and tile, it also contains sanitizing agents that keep surfaces free from bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. After letting the cleaner sit for a few minutes, the dirt that had lodged deep into the grout lines came loose. Next, we used a high-speed scrubber to remove the leftover dirt from the tiles and grout lines. When we finished cleaning, we began the sealing procedure with our flagship sealant, Tile Armor. This is an impregnating sealant that protects tile and grout against water, stains, mold, and mildew. Sealing the surface is essential to ensure long-lasting results.
When we finished, we showed the client his newly restored bathroom floor. He was amazed. The floor now looked brand-new. We were glad to see the customer was pleased by the job we had done. We had removed every trace of dirt and taken additional measures to ensure the grout remained in its current condition. The homeowner thanked us and said he would recommend our services and call back for maintenance.
We also gave the client some tips and recommendations on how to keep his bathroom looking great. First, we suggested cleaning the floor once a week using a pH-neutral soap-less cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. The client had been using store-bought products that did nothing but further ruin the floor's appearance. Using a cleaner that's safe for both tile and grout is the best way to prolong the lifespan of a surface. Second, we recommended wiping the surface with a dry cloth after every cleaning session.
This practice will help dry excess moisture caused by water or cleaner residue. Third, we advised the client to test the grout's sealant every month to ensure it's working. To do this, the homeowner should place a few drops of water on the grout lines. If the water seeps in, the floor must be re-sealed. Keeping the floor sealed helps prevent a myriad of problems that could lead to costly repairs.
Even the finest tile can appear dirty and unattractive if it's surrounded by filthy and stained grout.
