This Restroom in Connecticut is Now Back in Shape Thanks to Our Team of Tile and Grout Cleaners
February 20, 2019The cleanliness of the restrooms reflects on the business as a whole. For this reason, most business owners know it's important to keep the restroom's surfaces fully cleaned. It's the best way to ensure that both the customers and employees feel welcomed and appreciated. The owner of a BMW dealership in Connecticut knew this was the case, so he always made sure to keep the business's restrooms in good shape. Over time, he noticed that despite being cleaned regularly, the restroom's tiled surfaces were dull and the floor's grout became heavily discolored. The grimy grout lines stood out and gave the entire surface an unappealing appearance.
The owner went online and searched for possible solutions. He found that dirt, excess moisture, and many other external agents can drastically change the aspect of a surface if they're not properly maintained. Most websites suggested hiring professionals if the grime couldn't be removed with conventional cleaning methods. He knew that it was the best option, but he didn't know where to find professionals in the field of hard surface restoration. He went online once again and searched for tile and grout cleaners in Fairfield, CT and found our website. After watching some of the video testimonials and reading several reviews previous left by previous customers, he called to schedule a free evaluation.
Upon arriving at the dealership, our tile and grout cleaning experts assessed the restroom's surfaces to determine the best course of action. After they finished inspecting the surface, our team assured the customer that even though the surfaces were in dire need of a thorough cleaning, neither the tiles nor the fixtures needed replacement. Our specialists offered the client what he needed, a thorough tile and grout cleaning service and a sealing procedure for the restroom's floor. To seal the floor they would use Tile Armor, our proprietary sealant. The owner agreed to the service and scheduled another appointment for the job.
Dingy grout lines can be the result of improper sealing. Grout is porous, which means it's exposed to all kinds of external agents. To keep dirt, water, and other substances from seeping into the grout lines, it's best to coat them with an impregnating sealant that closes off the grout's pores. This will help prevent water damage, dirt accumulation, and mold growth.
Later that week, our experts went back to the dealership to clean and seal the restroom's surfaces. They started the cleaning process by soaking the floor and walls with a pH-neutral cleaner. Not only is this product safe for tile and grout, it also helps inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold and microorganisms. Next, they used a high-speed scrubber to remove the grime from the tiles and grout lines. For the spots on the floor that were harder to clean, they used a vapor steam cleaner. After drying the excess moisture, our experts finished the job by applying our flagship sealant, Tile Armor. This impregnating sealant will keep the surfaces protected until the next maintenance session.
After they finished, our techs let the customer see the results. He was happy with how the restroom had turned out. The tiles looked flawless and the grout lines looked pristine. His car dealership now had a restroom that matched his work ethic. He thanked our specialists and assured them he would call back for maintenance.
Before they left, our crew gave the client some care tips to keep the restroom looking great. First, they recommended cleaning the surfaces regularly with a pH-neutral, tile and grout-safe cleaner such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This will help keep the restroom fresh and free from bacteria. Second, they suggested keeping an eye on the sealant every month to ensure it's working. To do this, the owner should place a few drops of water on the grout. If it seeps in, then the grout must be resealed.
