A Stone Polishing and Grout Cleaning Job Restores the Wonderful Appearance of This Home in Stamford, CT
March 31, 2017
This homeowner from Stamford loved her travertine dining table since it gave the room an elegant and modern look. She always did everything she could to keep it looking radiant, but with kids in the house, this became a difficult task. We know how messy kids can be; they can spill and drop food or drinks that may be acidic, such as grapefruit juice. Acidic spills on travertine or any other stone surface should be cleaned up immediately to prevent etch marks. Unfortunately, her dining table had already suffered the consequences: it was now a reflection of constant spills from her kids. Also, it looked dull and scratched and had lost its appeal. She tried to remove the stains with some DIY cleaning recipes she found on the internet, but she didn't get good results.
The homeowner was starting to think that her travertine table's beautiful shine was lost forever and that she would have to replace it. Nonetheless, she remembered that her next-door neighbor also had travertine surfaces in his home, so she asked him if he could recommend a reliable stone polishing service in Stamford
. Fortunately, her neighbor recommended Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County and gave her the contact number so she could schedule a free evaluation.
When our team arrived at the homeowner's place, they first assessed the situation, took a couple of photos of the travertine table, and explained to her how they were going to restore it. The customer was satisfied with their evaluation and approved the service. Our stone polishing professionals first started by applying our proprietary cleaner to the surface and deep cleaning the table with a gentle, high-speed scrubber. The next step was to hone the surface, which would remove the imperfections caused by acidic substances. Then, they proceeded to polish the surface using a higher grit and polishing compound to give the stone a semi-gloss finish. Finally, they applied our proprietary stone sealer to protect the stone from future damage.
Our customer was so thrilled with the beautiful results that she showed us her master bathroom's shower, floor, and countertop. The tiles and grout were stained and grimy, but it was nothing that grout cleaning
service couldn't fix. We started the restoration by deep cleaning the master shower with our proprietary tile and grout cleaner and a gentle, high-speed scrubber. Then we used steam cleaning to kill mold and mildew and remove soap scum buildup. Next, we proceeded to clean the grout lines and fix the ones that were uneven and cracked. We finished up by honing and polishing the master bathroom floor and countertop.
Once the job was finished, we showed our client the results. She was already happy about her renewed travertine dining table, but after seeing how incredible her bathroom looked, she was ecstatic. She thanked our team for their hard work and told us she would recommend us to anyone who needed a hard surface restoration specialist. She even thanked her next-door neighbor for recommending us.
Before our experts left, they advised her to use neutral and soapless cleaners to keep her table, countertop, and floor beautiful and shiny.
