This Dingy Travertine Floor Is as Good as New after Our Stone Cleaning Service in Stamford
January 15, 2018
A house is a sacred place for families, which is one reason why homeowners try to keep their homes in the best possible condition. This married couple in Stamford, CT was no exception. They were going to be hosting some friends and family on Christmas and New Year's Eve, and they had a few days off from work for the holidays and had decided to spend some time deeply cleaning their house. After all, they were going to be having people over, and they wanted everything to look perfect.
On their first day off, they went out to buy some things they needed around the house, including some cleaning products. They didn't waste any time and started cleaning their house that same day. It wasn't long before they noticed that something was wrong with their living room floor. The travertine and grout lines were full of dirt and grime. The wife compared the floor to some photos that were taken when the floor was first installed and immediately noticed the difference. Since they were going to have a lot of family and friends over, they needed the best stone cleaning service in Stamford, CT
to clean their floor as soon as possible. However, the husband thought it would be better to try to solve the problem by themselves before seeking professional help.
The couple tried cleaning the floor, but they didn't notice any difference. So, they decided to spend the next few days cleaning. The wife even searched online for some tips on how to clean travertine floors. But no matter what they tried, the outcome was always the same. After several cleaning sessions, they decided that there was nothing else they could do. It was time to look for professionals who could solve the issue.
They called their siblings and friends to ask if they knew of a reliable company that they could hire to clean their living room floor. A friend from work told them that he had hired Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County and that they had done an amazing job with his kitchen floor. The homeowners trusted their friend and searched online for our company. The couple noticed that we were among their top search results. They looked at some photos of our previous work in our "Before and After" section. They also read several reviews from satisfied clients. That was all they needed to make up their minds. They gave us a call and scheduled a free, in-home evaluation.
A few days later, our team arrived at the couple's house to offer them the best possible solution. The couple showed our experts the living room floor, so they could see the problem for themselves. The technicians noticed that the travertine and grout lines were dirty, and they explained to the homeowners that pitted travertine floors usually collect difficult-to-clean dirt and grime. The clients asked if there was a solution, and our team told them that the best solution was our stone and grout cleaning service. The couple accepted our offer right away and scheduled a time for our technicians to get started. They just wanted to see their living room floor free of dirt and grime.
Many homeowners do not know how important it is to perform routine maintenance on their floors. Since living room floors are exposed to constant foot traffic, they can get dirty—and their grout lines can get grimy. Additionally, incorrect cleaning methods and products can damage floors, which is why it is important to hire a grout cleaning service twice a year.
On the day of the appointment, our crew arrived and was ready to get to work. The first step was to mask off the areas that needed to be protected before starting on the floor. Then we began the cleaning process. We used a stone cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to deeply clean the floor. After the travertine tiles and grout lines were clean, our experts removed all traces of the cleaner with a wet vacuum.
Once our technicians had finished the cleaning process, the next step was to seal the surface of the floor with our exclusive stone sealant, Stone Armor. This product is a natural-looking, solvent-based sealant that works on all stone surfaces.
After our technicians were done, they invited the clients to take a look at the results they had achieved. The couple was amazed by the incredible service our experts had provided. They never thought that a stone and grout cleaning service would make their living room floor look brand-new. The travertine floor was ready for Christmas and New Year's Eve. The wife thanked us several times for our work, and the husband took some pictures, so they could show the outcome to their friend. They both mentioned that they would recommend us to anyone who was experiencing similar issues.
Before leaving, our team gave the homeowners some tips on how to keep the floor looking beautiful. They explained that even though the sealant our technicians had applied would protect the surface from foot traffic, all spills should be cleaned up immediately because acidic or alkaline substances can break the sealant over time and reach the stone. Also, our experts recommended using specialized stone cleaners for regular cleaning.
