A homeowner in Stamford, CT, didn't feel comfortable with the appearance of her floors. The area connecting the foyer to the inner part of the house had changed drastically in only a few months due to several dark spots on the floor. The stains were expected since the homeowner was used to dealing with dirt being carried over from outside, but she was at a loss when most of it remained on the grout after multiple cleaning attempts.

Travertine Floor Before and After a Grout Sealing in Stamford
The best way to deal with the problem was to get a professional to look at the floor, so the homeowner started looking for grout sealing services in Stamford. Her first online search led her straight to Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County, and she knew right away that she was on the right path. From the results in our picture gallery, the homeowner could tell that our services were just what she needed for her floor so she didn't hesitate to contact our crew via the website's online form.

At her convenience, our experts went to her house later that week for an in-home evaluation. The dark brown grout lines were the first thing to catch their eye, but they also noticed specs of dirt that were spread all over the travertine tiles. Most of the marks were caused by foot traffic, and regular cleaners don't work against this type of stain once the dirt has seeped into the porous surface. Unfortunately, the floor's look didn't improve after our techs made their way from the foyer to the kitchen area. The best course of action involved a thorough deep cleaning service, followed by sealant on the floor's grout.

Our techs confirmed that Sir Grout's restoration method would fix the issue without putting a strain on the delicate stone surface, so the client felt reassured about going forward with the process.

She requested to have her floor restored the next day and our techs didn't let her down. They returned to her house early in the morning with all the necessary equipment, and they were welcomed in right away. First, they soaked the floor with a surface-safe cleaner and ran a high-speed scrubber on the entire surface, making their way through the hallway and the kitchen. This way, our techs saved time removing all traces of dirt from the tiles.

The travertine surface already looked brighter, but our specialists still needed to restore the grout. They applied ColorSeal to all the grout lines and recolored the surface to the client's specifications. Our acrylic-based sealant is the perfect solution to prevent stains after hours of foot traffic. It wards off all sorts of external elements, including soil, grime, dust, food residue, and more, so homeowners don't need to scrub for hours because the dirt doesn't get stuck on the grout pores.

Last but not least, our crew buffed the floor with stone sealant to preserve the travertine's natural beauty. Their work left the tiles looking like new, and the client was thrilled with the result. Her foyer looked amazing, and she couldn't wait to have guests over so she could tell them about our grout sealing services.

With that, our techs were ready to leave the house, but they took a few moments to share some additional recommendations. They warned against using generic cleaners on natural stone surfaces and told the client that pH-neutral cleaners were a much better choice. Products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner won't expose the floors to harsh ingredients each time you have to wipe off a new stain. Large surfaces can be cleaned more effectively, and homeowners don't have to waste time juggling different products at once. Moreover, our cleaner doesn't release toxic fumes into the air so there's no risk to people and pets. Another recommendation was to scrub the tiles with non-abrasive tools like a mop, a towel, or a terry cloth. If you try using shaper tools, chances are you'll leave a couple of scratch marks on the surface.

Regular cleaning is essential but we also recommend looking into the home's ventilation system if your floors are constantly affected by mold and mildew. Much of the damage that hard surfaces take over time can be traced back to a damp environment. You can easily minimize the effects of moisture buildup by simply opening the windows and doors from time to time.
