Tile and Grout Sealing Gives Fresh, New Look to Potomac Customer's Home
May 18, 2016
This homeowner had a problem – his beautiful home in Potomac, MD, a prominent suburb of Washington DC, was starting to show its age. The years had not been kind to the interior of his home – the tile and grout in his kitchen, master bath, and two other bathrooms were starting to become discolored. The tiles, abused by years of moisture and mildew from hot showers and baths, were no longer close to their clean, beautiful original condition – some were even beginning to crack, and the grout lines in between the tiles were also starting to wear. The grout was dark and discolored, and some patches of grout were beginning to dry and flake off.
Not only was the tile deteriorating, but the marble in his home's powder room AND the granite countertops in his kitchen were dirty-looking and no longer smooth and shiny. The homeowner did his best to mitigate the damage by creating a thorough cleaning schedule and making sure everyone in the family did his part to keep the house looking clean and new, but he was fighting a losing battle. Yes, the homeowner had a problem and needed the help of stone, tile, and grout professionals to get his house back to what it originally looked like. He went online and searched for a Potomac grout sealing
company to find local businesses in the area. He hoped they would be able to get started before the holidays – he was sure this would be a massive repair project. He found Sir Grout Washington DC Metro – the excellent reviews and feedback from previous customers made Sir Grout an easy choice. He was even more relieved to find out that Sir Grout could take care of everything he needed: steam cleaning the tile, repairing and sealing grout, and honing and polishing his marble and granite countertops.
The homeowner made the right choice by contracting Sir Grout Washington DC Metro, and our team was ready to get to work!
On the day of the job, Sir Grout's trained, professional tile and grout sealing team assessed the scope of the job, and settled on a multi-step approach. The team started with a thorough cleaning of the aged, discolored, and dry grout in the kitchen, master bath, the guest and children's bathrooms, and the powder room. They implemented a proprietary method to clean the hard surfaces: high-pressure, high-temperature, alkaline-based cleaning solution. Following the cleaning, they honed and polished the marble in the powder room. The crew then proceeded to polish and seal all the marble and granite countertops in the upstairs bath, kitchen, and butler's pantry. The team then circled back to the three bathrooms and applied ColorSeal to all the grout in the showers and baths, which filled in all the cracks in the tile and gave the grout a clean, uniform color.
When the job was finally completed, the final result left the homeowner in a state of awe. The homeowner could not believe that so much work could be done in such a short period of time and leave such a drastically different result without costly remodeling! He thanked the team repeatedly and promised to recommend Sir Grout to his friends and neighbors.
