July 12, 2019
Cleaning bathrooms can be difficult and time-consuming. For many homeowners, it is a struggle because damaged hard surfaces can't be restored with conventional methods. Professionals like Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County have the experience and the equipment to perform this task successfully. Our next client needed our assistance because there were several issues in her bathroom she couldn't solve.
The grout lines on the floor had acquired a darkish tone. As a result, the entire surface looked dirty and unappealing. Also, the marble countertop had lost its shine. The owner wanted the stone to have a semi-glossy finish. She tried many DIY methods she found in a magazine. Despite her best effort, the condition of the surfaces didn't improve. Nothing seemed to work. After some consideration, she decided to hire professionals. Thankfully, she found our grout cleaning service in New Canaan, CT
. Our experts revitalized the marble countertop and spruced-up the appearance of her bathroom's floor.
She later told us she found Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County because her friend told her about us. He said we had done an excellent job on his natural stone floors. He suggested going online to get more information about our services. Following his advice, she visited our website. She read testimonials from our previous satisfied customers and saw the pictures in the "Before and After" gallery. The pictures showed her the amazing results we provide our customers and the positive feedback was a testament to the quality of our work. After browsing our site, she knew we could solve the problems in her bathroom. She scheduled a free in-home consultation by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
We arrived on the appointed date for the evaluation of the bathroom and to offer an effective solution. After the greetings and introductions, we began the assessment. We spotted the problems right away. We noticed the marble countertop looked dull and unappealing. Furthermore, the grout lines on the bathroom's floor were full of dirt and had acquired an unsightly appearance. We told the owner that heavy daily use and improper maintenance led to this deterioration. Upon closer inspection, we learned that the grout lines were unsealed. We explained that grout is porous and susceptible to damage. If it is not sealed, it can absorb water, dirt, grime, soap, and cleaner residue. When this happens, the grout lines look dirty and rundown. After finishing the inspection, we concluded that the bathroom required our professional service.
We offered a grout cleaning service to remove the blemishes from the floor and give the marble countertop a new life. We would hone the stone to any finish she requested. We assured the owner her bathroom would have an improved look when we were finished. She was pleased with our solution, so she decided to hire us. We set up a date for the job.
We returned to her house a few days later to restore the bathroom. This process requires several steps and the most effective techniques. Since we needed to address the damage on several areas, we decided to start working on the marble countertop. We cleaned the surface using our stone-safe product and a high-speed scrubber. Unlike soap-based and acidic cleaners, our product doesn't leave residue and won't cause any damage to the marble. In addition, it has an improved antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. Once the countertop was spotless, we were ready to hone the stone. For this step we used our high-grade diamond honing pads.
We ran three sets, each with an increased level of grit. We grinded until we achieved the semi-gloss finish the owner requested. We continued by working on the bathroom's floor. We cleaned, repaired, and applied ColorSeal to the grout lines. Our sealant wards off damages from dirt, grime, and all other external agents. It's especially useful in showers and bathrooms because it prevents water and other liquids from seeping into the grout. Moreover, it comes in a variety of colors and enhances the appearance of the entire surface. After all the steps were completed, the bathroom had been fully restored. The marble countertop looked amazing and it had the finish the owner desired.
We invited our client to see the outcome of the process. When the owner saw the countertop, she was thrilled because it finally looked the way she wanted. The marble had a beautiful semi-gloss finish. She was impressed by the gorgeous new appearance of her bathroom. The owner was happy with our job and said that our performance had gone beyond her expectations. After thanking us, she stated that she would recommend Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County to her friends, family, and neighbors. She would contact us for any hard surface restoration she might need in the future.
When we were about to leave, we gave the owner some suggestions to help her keep the surfaces in great condition. We recommended cleaning the bathroom periodically using only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product is safe and won't stain or discolor the marble. It also has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. Soap-based cleaners, on the other hand, leave residue that seeps deep into the grout lines and can cause mold and mildew growth. We don't recommend acidic cleaners either because they are harsh and can deteriorate the stone. Never use products that contain these properties.
Mold and mildew thrive in damp and moist areas. For this reason, it is important to allow the moisture to flow freely. We recommend leaving the door ajar or a window open, especially after hot showers. Keep the surface dry using a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth. Squeegeeing after every use is a great way to decrease the accumulation of dirt particles on the bathroom.
