September 11, 2018Selling a house can be a complicated task. There are many things to consider before, during, and after putting a home up for sale, from the impersonal decor to the optimal functioning of every system and area. Everything must be impressively attractive, warm, captivating, and of course, fully operative. With that in mind, this Darien resident decided to give his home a touch-up with the intention of drawing the attention of potential buyers. That is how he came across our service of stone honing in Darien, CT.
The Cleaning ProcessOur homeowner's bathroom floor was in pretty rough shape, for which it was necessary to use the right cleaning products and a high-speed floor machine. Our technicians scrubbed off all the grime that had accumulated in the grout lines and the crevices of the stone tiles. It was necessary to use vapor steam cleaning to eliminate the most embedded grime. A similar, yet less intensive, process was performed on the bathroom countertop, as all the stone surfaces had to be completely cleaned before honing and polishing because any remaining trace of dirt could compromise these subsequent processes. Fortunately, cleanliness wasn't an issue, as they were all cleansed with Sir Grout's recently enhanced cleaning products, that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold and microorganisms.
Honing and Polishing the Stone SurfacesOnce all surfaces were clean and dry, our techs continued by honing the bathroom floor and countertop using low numbered grit pads to eliminate the scratches, stains, and etch marks on both surfaces. As expected, the stone bathroom floor needed some extra honing to get rid of the hideous look of its surface. Afterward, the specialists buffed both surfaces with higher number grit pads and abrasive materials until a beautiful shine blossomed through.
Replacing and ColorSealing the GroutTo achieve the expected results, our technicians had to replace the old deteriorated grout from between the bathroom floor, as it not only aesthetically overshadowed the recently polished stone, but it would cause damage in the long run because damaged grout lets moisture accumulate between and under the stone. They carefully removed and replaced it with a more durable and less porous epoxy grout. Finally, to give the grout extra protection, ColorSeal was applied. This thick water-based acrylic sealer added an extra layer of protection to the already durable epoxy grout. It also gave the grout lines a uniform color all throughout the entire bathroom floor.
The OutcomeAs soon as the multistage restoration came to an end, the homeowner stepped in to take a look at the outcome. He was visibly pleased and gave thanks to our crew for the magnificent work they had performed in his house. He could now confidently put the house up for sale because he knew the sight would dazzle potential buyers into paying a good price.
