Our Top-Notch Grout Cleaning in Franklin, TN Greatly Improved the Appearance of a Ceramic Bathroom Floor
July 26, 2021Last year, a newlywed couple moved to their new home in Franklin to start their life together. While most of the hard surfaces in their lovely home were in good shape, others needed a touch-up. One of them was the floor in the master bathroom. It had a beautiful ceramic tile décor, but the grout lines were dirty. At the time, they tried cleaning the grout using different methods and products. They succeeded in giving the grout lines a cleaner appearance, but they still didn't look quite right.
After dealing with dingy grout lines for a year, the couple finally decided to seek professional help. The suggestions they had received from their friends and family hadn't worked, so they needed something better. They went online and searched for grout cleaning professionals in Franklin, TN. They found our website in the top search results. Browsing the picture gallery was all they needed to determine we were the right choice. They called to request a free in-home assessment and a quote.
We visited the client's home a few days later to assess the surface. We quickly identified what was causing the problem. The bathroom had beautiful ceramic tiles, but dirt and other substances had permeated the grout because it hadn't been sealed in a long time. Some of the grout lines were severely stained, which was likely the result of improper cleaning methods. We later confirmed that was the case when we asked the couple about their cleaning routine. They admitted to using bleach and other abrasive cleaners in an attempt to clean the grout lines.
Despite the grout being in bad shape, the damage was still reversible. With this in mind, we offered the customers a grout cleaning and sealing service. To seal the grout lines, we would use our flagship sealant ColorSeal. The clients agreed to the proposal and set up an appointment for the next day.
The following day, we returned to the homeowner's place to restore their bathroom floor. We started the restoration procedure by soaking the floor with a pH-neutral cleaner that is safe for tile and grout. It also contains properties that help inhibit the growth of common household bacteria, mold, and mildew. After we let the cleaner sit for a few minutes, most of the dirt came loose. We extracted the remaining dirt from the grout lines using a high-speed scrubber. Once we finished cleaning, we dried the surface to inspect the grout. Fortunately, the removal of the dirt revealed healthy-looking grout lines.
To finish the restoration procedure, we sealed the grout with our flagship sealant ColorSeal. This is both a high-quality waterproof and stainproof coating that protects grout and facilitates its maintenance. It also prevents dirt accumulation and mold and mildew growth and comes in a variety of colors. The clients chose white ColorSeal to give their bathroom a hygienic appearance.
The clients loved the outcome. When we brought in the couple so they could see the results, they couldn't believe how clean the grout looked. They didn't think the bathroom had the potential to look the way it did up until now. The couple thanked us for the job and assured us that if they ever needed any of their hard surfaces restored, they would call us. Our number one goal is to earn the trust of our customers, so we were pleased to hear that.
Before leaving, we gave the couple a few maintenance tips to help them keep the floor in good shape. We first recommended cleaning the floor once a week using a damp cloth and a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike most products in the market, it won't damage grout nor leave any residue behind. We also suggested keeping the floor as dry as possible. Bathroom floors are constantly exposed to water, making it easy to spread dirt around. To finish, we advised them to avoid hard-scrubbing the grout lines. Now that they're sealed with ColorSeal, the grout on the floor should be much easier to clean. There's no need to use harsh substances or tools to keep them looking great. The couple thanked us for the tips and promised to follow them moving forward.
