A Tile Cleaning in Darien, CT Might Be Exactly What Your Restaurant Needs to Bring in More Customers
January 23, 2020A business owner in Darien, CT recently contacted us because he wanted to give his restaurant's surfaces a little TLC. It had been a while since the restaurant's floors had been professionally serviced, so he decided to contact Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County's tile cleaning experts in Darien to have them renew their appearance.
Most of the areas in the restaurant, including the kitchen, had tile floors. Even though tile floors are both a great and durable option for areas subjected to high foot traffic, it's necessary to give them regular maintenance to ensure they remain in good condition. Unfortunately, the owner's busy schedule had caused him to leave the business' floors unattended. This allowed dirt to build upon the tiles and grout lines, making the surfaces appear unhygienic.
The owner knew first impressions mattered when it came to customers, so he couldn't afford to further postpone the restoration of the floors. For this reason, he searched online for a reputable hard surface restoration company that offered high-quality services. Luckily it wasn't long until he found our website. After watching some of the video testimonials left by previous customers and browsing our Before and After gallery, he was convinced we were exactly what he needed. He called to request a free assessment and a quote.
When we visited the customer's restaurant on the appointed date, we noticed there were no major issues with any of the floors we were asked to restore. The surfaces simply needed a thorough cleaning. To solve the problem, we offered the client a tile cleaning and sealing service. Our sealing procedure will protect the surfaces from future damage. The owner agreed to our proposal and scheduled an appointment for the next day.
On the day of the job, we began the restoration procedure by soaking the floors with Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This cleaner is safe for both tile and grout. Thanks to its enhanced properties, this cleaner is also perfect for restaurants and other areas that need to be fully cleansed. After the cleaner sat on the floors for a few minutes, most of the dirt that had adhered to the surface came loose. We used a high-speed scrubber and a steam cleaner to remove the remaining dirt from the tiles and grout lines.
Once we finished cleaning, we began the sealing procedure. We used our proprietary sealant, Tile Armor, this is an impregnating sealant that protects both tile and grout from water, stains, mold, and mildew. The sealant also gave the floor a beautiful matte finish.
The results were outstanding. The appearance of the floors had drastically changed for the better. The tiles were no longer riddled with dirt and the grout wasn't discolored. The owner was impressed. Not only had we restored the surfaces, we had helped him create a more inviting environment for his customers. He thanked us for the job and promised he would call back regularly for maintenance.
Prior to leaving, we gave the client and his cleaning crew a few tips to ensure the restaurant's floors remained in good condition. We first recommended cleaning the floors regularly using a pH-neutral soap-free cleaner and a damp mop. It's important to use cleaners that are safe for tile to avoid damage. We also suggested wiping away spills and excess moisture away with a dry mop as soon as they happened. Letting water and other substances sit on the floor can lead to costly repairs. To finish, we advised them to keep an eye on the state of the floor's sealant to ensure it's working. To do this, they should place a few drops of water on the floor. If the water seeps in, the floor must be re-sealed. The owner thanked us for the tips and assured us he would put them to use.
