The Floors of This Home in New Canaan Were Transformed with a Tile Cleaning Job
April 03, 2017
Dogs can be one of the happiest yet messiest additions to any family. They give us plenty of reasons to open our hearts and doors to them. Without even noticing it, they become important family members, ones you cannot live without. The problem with dogs, especially male dogs, is that they love to mark their territory by urinating in places that they think belong to them, which may leave yellow stains on floors. That was exactly the problem of this New Canaan homeowner. He had two large dogs who sometimes marked their territory and left yellow stains on the kitchen, living room, and mudroom floor. No matter what products the homeowner used, the stains would not go away. He knew he had to seek professional help to restore his floors, so he searched online for New Canaan tile cleaning
. While searching for companies online, he found Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County; our years of experience, the before and after pictures from previous jobs, and our clients' testimonials made it an easy decision for this homeowner.
Dogs are territorial by nature; thus, they tend to mark their territory with urine. Urine stains are hard to eliminate from any surface. The reason these types of stains are so difficult to remove is because of the uric acid crystals found in urine. Most household products do not work because the chemicals in them cannot break down this component. As a result, the yellow stains on your tiles and grout may seem impossible to remove. To eliminate these stains, a professional cleaning service is necessary.
Upon arriving at the homeowner's residence, Sir Grout's trained team assessed the scope of the job, documented the pre-treatment state of the floor, and formulated a plan. The team determined that they could restore the homeowner's floors with a tile cleaning and grout recoloring service.
Our team first applied our unique tile and grout cleaner and deep cleaned the floor with a gentle, high-speed scrubber. They also used vapor steam cleaning to remove the remaining stains and dirt in the grout lines and then applied ColorSeal – our proprietary sealer that will recolor your grout while making it stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant – in a tone that matched the tiles. They had first shown the client over 30 standard colors that he could choose from, and the client settled for ColorSeal in Bone.
When the team finished, they showed the outcome to the homeowner. He was very impressed with the results; the new grout lines now had a light color, and they were clean and fresh. The stains had disappeared, and his house had a fresh, clean smell. He could not thank our team enough for restoring his home's floors and making them look like new.
Before our team left, they gave the homeowner some recommendations so he could continue enjoying his fresh and clean floor for years to come. To minimize dirt buildup, they recommended him to use floor mats, frequently change mop water, and clean the tile and grout with neutral and soapless cleaners. They also told him that if he needed additional care tips and product recommendations, he could find them here
