No More Dirt for This Bathroom After Our Tile Cleaning Service in Darien, CT
November 10, 2017Sooner or later, nearly everyone wants to own a house. This should come as no surprise, as a high-quality house is a wonderful place to raise a family. In fact, this homeowner in Darien, CT had a big family—a husband and many sons. One day, she and her husband realized that their house was too big for them now that their boys had moved out, so they decided to sell it and buy a smaller one. However, when the married couple started examining the house, they realized that something was wrong—the bathroom floor had horrible dark stains and was very dirty. She couldn't put the house up for sale with her bathroom looking like that. So she went to a local store and bought a bunch of cleaning products to remove the stains. She dedicated a weekend to cleaning the dark tiles. At first, she didn't notice any changes to the floor, but she thought the stains would disappear after several cleaning sessions. However, after three weeks of hard cleaning, she was still trying to remove the stains. The results were not positive. In fact, the floor was getting worse.
She told her husband about how desperate she was to remove the stains, which could even lower the price of their house. She realized they needed to get professional help as soon as possible so, her husband made a call to a friend asking about a tile cleaning service in Darien, CT and Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County was mentioned. The Darien residents immediately went online and found our website among their top internet search results. She saw the quality of our work in our gallery of before and after photos. Additionally, she read testimonials from satisfied clients. She was convinced and gave us a call to schedule a free, in-home consultation.
On the day of the evaluation, our team examined the bathroom and offered the concerned client the best possible solution. The experts noticed the persistent dirt and faded tiles in the shower. Also, the team noticed that the grout was unsealed. We explained to the customer that the unsealed grout had allowed dirt and humidity to penetrate the surface and leave horrible stains. Our team decided that a deep cleaning service was needed to eliminate the dirt. We also needed to apply a sealant to the entire floor to protect it from future damage. The client trusted our judgment and accepted our proposal right away.
A few days later, the team returned to start the cleaning process. Eliminating the grime was the first problem our team needed to resolve. To do this, we used some of our proprietary products, which are safe for tile and grout. Then we used a high-speed scrubber to remove all the dirt. A vapor steam cleaning machine was also needed so we could deeply clean the most difficult areas.
Grout is a porous material, which makes it easier for soil and grime to penetrate its surface. Unfortunately, grout stains easily if it is constantly exposed to liquids and dirt. People tend to clean grout lines with the wrong type of cleaning products, without knowing that some cleaners can leave behind a film that traps dirt.
Our team's final step was to recolor the grout lines. We used our very own ColorSeal, which allows customers to choose the color they want their grout to be. This homeowner chose a color that matched her bathroom tiles. The best part about this product is that it seals grout, making it resistant to spills, stains, water, mold, and mildew. We told the homeowner that ColorSeal would help maintain her shower in perfect condition. Shower floors are exposed to moisture and soap scum, and ColorSeal helps protect grout from these elements and increase the floor's durability.
When our specialists finished, they showed the client the final result. The homeowner was amazed. She had never imagined that a tile cleaning service could completely transform her bathroom. She sent her husband some pictures of the wonderful outcome and thanked our team several times. She was sure that they could now sell their house at a good price.
Before our specialists left, they gave her some tips on how to keep her bathroom looking great. We advised her to always use pH-neutral, soapless cleaners on the shower and any other area of the house to prevent soap residues from making the tiles look unappealing. Our team also told her to never let the room air dry. Instead, we advised her to use a terry cloth to remove dirty water.
