Our Professional Tile and Grout Cleaners in Rockville, MD Revamped This Bathroom with an Amazing New Look
February 20, 2019
Tile and grout require proper maintenance in order to keep surfaces looking beautiful and clean. However, it is important to know that grout is a vulnerable component because it is most commonly cement-based and has a porous composition. As a result, it readily absorbs water, dirt, soap, and cleaner residue. When this happens, the grout lines acquire a darkish color, spoiling the surface with an unclean appearance. Furthermore, even the sturdiest tiles can show signs of deterioration. For instance, soap residue can turn into soap scum, forming nasty stains on the surface. These blemishes can't be removed with conventional cleaning methods. Professional tile and grout cleaners can successfully rectify any damage using special methods and high-end equipment.
Our next client was needed our assistance because he was struggling with the condition of his bathroom. At first, maintenance hadn't been much trouble, but as time passed, daily wear and tear started to take a toll on the surface. The grout lines looked dirty and the tiles had an unsightly appearance. The owner tried using some DIY cleaning routines he found in a magazine, using products like vinegar and ammonia, but nothing worked. After considering his options, he decided to look for professional assistance. All his problems were solved when he found our tile and grout cleaners in Rockville, MD
One of his neighbors told him about us. When he mentioned the issues in his bathroom, she recommended us right away. We had worked on her natural stone shower, and she loved the results. She suggested going online to get more information about us. He followed her advice and went to visit our website. He read testimonial from our previous satisfied customers and looked at the picture gallery
. The pictures showed him the amazing results we provide our customers and the positive feedback we receive every day was a testament to the dedication we put on our work. After browsing our site, he knew we could help him. He scheduled a free in-home consultation by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
On the appointed date, we arrived at his house to perform the evaluation of the bathroom. After the introductions, we proceeded with the assessment. We immediately noticed the grout lines were full of dirt and looked damaged. Also, the tiles were dingy and stained. Daily wear and tear, improper cleaning methods, and the use of harsh products led to this deterioration. We explained to him that his cleaning attempts were not effective because the grout had become one with the harmful agents. Moreover, there was no sealant on the surface. This allowed water, dirt, and soap residue to seep into the grout, causing more damage and potentially leading to mold and mildew growth. We concluded that the bathroom required our professional process for full restoration.
We offered a tile and grout cleaning service to remove all the dirt and blemishes from the surface with our state-of-the-art products, professional equipment and advanced techniques. We assured him the shower would have a beautiful new appearance when we were finished. The owner was pleased with our assessment and the solution we proposed, so he hired us for the job.
A couple of days later, we returned to our client's house to begin the bathroom's restoration. Our process consisted of several steps and required thorough execution. We started by cleaning the surface using our special pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. In addition to being safe for tiles and grout, our product has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. When the tiles were no longer dirty, we were ready to repair the grout. We fixed all the problems in the grout lines and moved to the next step. Using a high temperature steam cleaner, we removed the remaining grime and dirt from the areas that were difficult to reach. After that, we continued with the sealing process.
To seal the grout lines, we used our exclusive ColorSeal. This high-level sealant blocks the absorption of liquids, warding off damages from dirt, grime, and all other harmful external agents. When the surface is shielded with this sealant, excessive scrubbing won't be necessary, making cleaning routines easier and faster. ColorSeal comes in a variety of colors so the owner can match the grout with the tiles, enhancing the appearance of the entire bathroom. Thanks to its highly resistant composition, our sealant is ideal for areas subjected to daily use because it reduces deterioration from heavy wear and tear.
We finished all the steps and showed the amazing restoration we had achieved to our client. The owner was beyond thrilled with the renewed appearance of his bathroom. He was happy to see that the grout lines no longer had a darkish color and all the issues had been solved. He was relieved because the process had been cost-effective, successful, and it only took one day. The owner was impressed by the quality of our work, and after thanking us, he said he would recommend our service to his friends, family, and neighbors.
We always take time after finishing our work to teach our clients the proper way to perform maintenance on their restored surfaces. We recommended cleaning the bathroom using only pH-neutral soap free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product won't cause any damage because it doesn't leave residue. Also, it has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. Soap-based cleaners, on the other hand, leave a film that seeps deep into the grout lines, giving the surface an unsightly appearance and promoting mold and mildew growth. For this reason, we don't recommend products with these properties. To keep the bathroom in top condition, establish a cleaning routine for every one or two weeks. This will prevent dirt accumulation and other signs of deterioration.
Due to the high moisture levels of the area, it's necessary to keep the bathroom dry and well ventilated. This is important because mold and mildew thrive in damp environments. After every use, leave the door ajar or a window open to allow humidity to flow freely. To dry the surface, use a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth. Scrub gently to avoid scratches.
