Our Stone Cleaning Experts in Dallas Successfully Revamped the Appearance of This Slate Floor
June 23, 2019
When our next clients moved into their new house in Dallas, they loved the slate floor it had. The flowing months, the couple performed regular maintenance on the floor and used wax to improve the appearance of the stone. Unfortunately, this produced a negative effect. The slate tiles started to look discolored and unappealing. The owners tried everything to bring back the beauty of their floor, but nothing worked. After many unsuccessful cleaning attempts, they decided to look for professional assistance. Thankfully, they found our Dallas stone cleaning
service and we provided the solution they were looking for.
They heard about Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth from one of their friends. He recommended us because he was very happy with the job we did in his house. He suggested checking out our website to get more information. They followed his advice, visited our site, read testimonials from previous customers, and browsed the "Before and After" gallery. The couple was pleased because everything they read and saw certified the quality of our work and the amazing results we provide our customers. Convinced we could solve their problem, they filled out the "Request a Quote" form and scheduled a free consultation.
A few days later, we evaluated the surface. After greeting the owners, we proceeded with the assessment. We noticed several layers of wax had discolored the beautiful slate tiles. As we continued the inspection, we found the floor didn't have sealant. We explained that unsealed slate can absorb cleaner residue, oils, water, or any splash of liquid left on the surface for long periods of time. This can dull the stone and spoil its appearance. We concluded that it was necessary to use our professional process in order to rectify the issues and give the floor a breath of new life.
For the restoration, we offered a stone cleaning service. With our professional equipment and exclusive products, we would remove all the damages from the floor. We assured the couple our process would be successful. They were pleased with our assessment and the solution we proposed, so they decided to hire our service.
We returned to restore the floor. To ensure optimal results, this procedure consisted of several steps. We began by cleaning the surface using our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This exclusive product won't cause any damage to the slate tiles. Additionally, it has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. When the floor was completely clean, we performed all the necessary repairs in the grout lines, removing all the dirt and fixing all the damages. For the following step, we needed to remove the wax. We stripped the layers of wax with our high-end equipment and gave the stone its original finish. After that, we were ready to seal the slate.
For this task, we used our top of the line Stone Armor. This sealant is ideal for floors because it minimizes the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic. It protects the surface from all sorts of liquids, warding off stains and other signs of deterioration. Furthermore, it enhances the slate with a brand-new look. When we finished the process, the floor looked amazing.
We invited our clients to see the results. The owners were in awe when they saw the astonishing renewed appearance of the slate. They were surprised because this incredible restoration had been fast and cost-effective. After thanking us, they said our performance had gone beyond their expectations. They assured us that they would certainly recommend our services to their friends, family, and neighbors.
Once the couple finished their inspection, we took time to give them some suggestions for more effective maintenance. We recommended cleaning the floor every week using only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residue and won't cause damage. Additionally, it has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. It is also important to keep the surface as dry as possible. Spills shouldn't be left lingering on the floor for long periods of time. If spills occur, they should be removed immediately using a towel or a terry cloth.
We don't recommend using abrasive tools such as wools because they can scratch the tiles. Thanks to the protective layer our sealant added, excessive force won't be necessary when scrubbing the surface. They will be able to clean the floor with minimal effort. Avoid using soap-based or acidic cleaners because these products contain harsh agents that react negatively with the composition of slate and can damage the stone. To prevent deterioration, it is necessary to keep the surface sealed. Check the sealant periodically by pouring a few drops of water on the stone. If the slate absorbs the liquid, then it needs sealing. We recommend checking the sealant every year.
