This Grungy Travertine Floor Now Looks Wonderful Thanks to a Stone Cleaning in Stamford, CT
December 01, 2021A resident from Stamford, CT, contacted us because she wanted to improve the condition of her travertine floor. The owner performed regular cleaning routines, but despite her best effort, she couldn't restore the stone. Nothing she tried seemed to work. Determined to solve the issue, she even used some DIY methods she found online. Unfortunately, she saw no positive results.
After considering her options, the owner decided it was time to look for professional assistance. While she was searching for a hard surface restoration company, one of her friends told her about Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County. He was a loyal customer and highly recommended our services, saying we had done an amazing job restoring the bathrooms in his house. Following his suggestion, the owner went online to get more information about us on our website. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery she called us, explained her problem, and asked for a free assessment. Our Stamford Stone Cleaning experts successfully restored the travertine, and now the surface looks wonderful.
As the owner requested, we arrived to perform the in-home consultation. We immediately noticed the travertine floor had an unsightly appearance. The surface looked filthy and run-down. We explained that this kind of stone has many pits and pores. Because of this, it can absorb dirt easily and deteriorate quickly. Grout itself is porous as well and requires sealing. We told the owner it was necessary to seal the grout lines to prevent future damages. After finishing the evaluation, we determined regular cleaning methods wouldn't provide the result the owner was expecting. For an effective restoration, it was necessary to use Sir Grout's professional process and top-of-the-line equipment. We proposed a stone cleaning service to address all the problems, improve the floor, and give the travertine a breath of new life. After hearing the offer, the owner decided to hire us for the job.
A couple of days later, we returned to restore the travertine floor. To achieve optimal results, we use a process that follows a series of steps. We began by cleaning the surface using our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product won't cause any damage to the travertine because it's made only with top-quality ingredients. It also offers many other benefits and doesn't leave a residue. After cleaning, we continued with the grout repairs and the sealing process.
For this step, we sealed the grout lines with ColorSeal. Sir Grout's exclusive sealant offers long-lasting results and provides unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, making cleaning routines easy and fast. It also repels UV rays, for areas subjected to solar damage. ColorSeal revitalizes the grout with a vibrant color and brand-new appearance, greatly improving the surface. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing homeowners to match the tiles with the grout. When we finished the final step, the travertine was in top condition and the floor looked amazing.
Our client loved the results of our work. She was beyond thrilled with the renewed appearance of the travertine. After thanking us, she said our performance was impressive and surpassed all her expectations. Before we left, she assured us she would recommend Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County to everyone.
Travertine is an excellent choice for flooring, but the stone is porous and can absorb all sorts of external agents. For this reason, these surfaces require proper maintenance and care. To keep this stone looking great, it's essential to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. To prevent the accumulation of dirt, we suggest setting up a weekly cleaning routine. For more effective results, perform this chore using only pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is soap-free, non-toxic, and safe for everyone in the house, including pets.
We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products leave a foam that seeps into the grout and contains agents that can harm the surface. When applying the cleaning solution, always use a clean mop and let the floor dry completely before entering the room again. Avoid cleaning the floors with steel wools or any other abrasive tool. While cleaning the area, keep children and pets away from the wet surface.
