A Grout Cleaning Was All What This Ceramic Floor Needed to Look Incredible in Dallas, TX
March 13, 2018The ceramic floor of this doctor's office was generally in good condition at first glance, but it could use some work. The main problem was the dirty grout lines—this was something the owner wanted to fix a long time ago to give a fresh and clean touch to the office. A few weeks before she hired a cleaning company to deep clean the office floor, but she wasn't pleased with the results. Even though the tiles looked clean, the grout lines remained dirty. After this disappointing experience, the owner decided to research in-depth on grout cleaning in Dallas, TX, hoping to find the right company to do the job.
When she searched the Internet, among the top results was our website. She learned about our tile and grout cleaning services as well as our ColorSeal treatment, which caught her attention. She checked out the 'before and after' section and started reading all the positive testimonials of our clients and she also saw numerous pictures of the previous work we had done at the gallery. She was amazed by all this information, supporting many years of our experience in the profession. The woman decided to contact us by phone and requested a free in-home consultation as soon as possible.
The arranged day, our team of technicians arrived at the doctor's office in order to evaluate the condition of the floor. Before this, the doctor told them about the previous cleaning service from a few weeks earlier that didn't work. Our technicians could see that the grout lines were full of grime and dirt due to the lack of sealant, which allowed water to seep through making them lose its original color and look unattractive and dirty. The specialists explained to the owner that it wasn't really that bad, and we suggested a grout cleaning and ColorSeal to restore the grout lines and the floor. This plan intended to not only clean the grout lines but also seal and protect them from future dirt accumulation and liquid. The woman agreed and put her trust in us to get the job done properly.
Our technicians started by applying a non-toxic pH-neutral cleaner to the tile and grout. Then, they deep cleaned the area with a high-speed gentle scrubber that extracted dirt from the grout. Next, our experts used vapor steam cleaning for particularly stubborn areas. Finally, they applied Sir Grout's proprietary Tile Armor grout protector to seal and shield against future stains and spills. Last but not least, Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth's one-of-a-kind ColorSeal treatment was applied to the grout lines after the grout cleaning process. ColorSeal is Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth's most renowned and versatile service, making grout resistant to stains, water, mold, and mildew; ColorSeal also re-colors the grout lines, which gave the final touch to this beautiful ceramic floor. When the woman entered the office and saw the floors, she couldn't believe it. The results were quite noticeable, and she was certainly satisfied with the outcome. After a very careful inspection, she thanked the crew for the excellent job performed and took some pictures that she mentioned she would show to her colleagues and friends.
Before leaving, our experts gave the office owner some recommendations to maintain the tiles and grout, which included vacuuming the floor frequently to remove loose dirt and dust. After that, we told her she should apply pH-neutral and soap-less floor cleaners to the tile and grout and let it soak for 5 minutes before mopping as usual and using undiluted cleaner where dirt has accumulated most. It is important to always dry the surface with a towel or terry cloth to remove dirty water or cleaner residue that has settled into the concave grout lines, otherwise, once the liquid evaporates, dirt will be left behind.
Ceramic flooring is a versatile architectural resource that can be used in a variety of environments without having to worry about constraints of water, stains, and design. Additionally, ceramic tiles are available in small sizes, making the tile easy to handle. It also prevents wastage in tile material. Ceramic flooring is extremely tough, and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for 10 – 20 years or longer if well maintained. If a single tile cracks due to a severe impact, the process of replacing that tile is relatively simple. Besides this, it is fairly easy to care for. Dirt, stains, and liquids all rest on the surface, allowing you to easily wipe or mop them away.
