Our Stone Cleaning Techs Made a Bathroom Floor in Southport Look Stunning
April 29, 2022A homeowner in Southport, CT, contacted our specialists to help her with her floor. The master bathroom floor combined different colored tiles in a pattern that was very pleasing to the eye. In the last few weeks, however, the tiles had suffered severe discoloration, to the point that it was almost impossible to see the details on the stone. Since she took care of house cleaning, the homeowner was familiar with stains on her bathroom surfaces. It didn't take long for her to understand that hiring a Southport Stone Cleaning company was the best approach.
Unlike other stains in her bathroom, there was no way to loosen the soil and product residue from the floor. The stone tiles and the grout looked dirty and unhygienic even after going through various cleaning sessions throughout the week. As she started looking for a stone restoration service, the homeowner had set her mind on finding the most specialized company in the area, so she ruled out a couple of options before coming across Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County. She decided to contact our specialists after seeing the results in our picture gallery, and our specialists went to her house a couple of days after she filled out our website's "Request a Quote" form.
Our specialists went to her house on the appointed date to evaluate her bathroom floor. The first thing they noticed was the soil stuck to the tiles and the grout. It made the floor look unhygienic and dimmed the color of the stone tiles. They also noticed that the sealant had worn off, so the tiles had been stained with no way to preserve their shine. When we asked the client about her cleaning routine, she confirmed that she had used bleach on her bathroom floor, and later on, she'd tried a mix of vinegar and water in an effort to detach the dirt from the grout lines. Our specialists explained that these solutions only cause discoloration and compromise the stone's porous surface. Luckily, there was no deep structural damage, so our specialists could conduct a thorough cleaning job to leave the floor as good as new. They also needed to hone the stone and seal the floor to enhance its protection. The client was happy to know there was a definitive solution and hired our restoration services right away.
On the day of the restoration, our techs started cleaning the bathroom floor with a special pH-neutral cleaner. Our product helps remove dirt, soil, spills, mold, and mildew while remaining safe for stone surfaces. It causes no discoloration and doesn't affect the stone grain in any way. To remove the loose soil, our specialists ran a high-speed scrubber all over the floor's surface until it was spotless. For the next step, our crew honed the surface to remove the etch marks on the tiles.
Now they just had to seal the surface. Our techs applied Sir Grout's signature ColorSeal all over the grout lines until they were spotless. Our sealant provides the best protection to ward off outside elements and helps inhibit the growth of fungi, mold, and mildew. It keeps the stains away from your grout, even on surfaces subjected to constant liquid and food spills.
After buffing the floor one last time with Stone Armor, our specialists called the client back to the bathroom. She was delighted by the result. Every inch of the floor looked spotless, and the tiles' design popped out in a way that enlivened the whole room. The client thanked our specialists for an impeccable job and promised to recommend our services to all her friends and relatives.
Before leaving, our specialists shared some helpful pointers with the client. They told her that pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are the safest and most effective way to clean stone surfaces. Our cleaner keeps stone floors shiny while helping preserve the sealant for longer. It's also free of chemical ingredients, so no toxic fumes are released into the air, and there's no risk of discoloration on the floor. Our specialists also recommended wiping spills as soon as they happen using a mop, a clean towel, or a terry cloth. Moisture buildup is a common problem in showers and other bathroom surfaces, so homeowners should open the windows to help the circulation of fresh air and prevent the appearance of mold and mildew.
