A Grout Sealing Job in Boston Provided Full Protection to This Bathroom and Enhanced its Appearance
June 06, 2019
Grout is an essential component for tile installation because it supports the integrity of the surface. Even though it prevents water and other liquids from leaking into the walls, grout is mostly cement-based and porous. This means it is vulnerable and susceptible to damage because it readily absorbs all sorts of external agents like dirt, grime, and cleaner residue. When this happens, a darkish unclean appearance spoils the entire surface.
Grout sealing is necessary in order to prevent the deterioration of the surface. Properly sealed grout repels damages and withstands daily wear and tear. For this reason, it is important to seal the grout lines upon installation. However, grout sealing is complex and requires skillful procedures. Professionals like Sir Grout of Greater Boston have the experience and the tools to perform this task effectively and successfully.
Over the years, our next client's bathroom received heavy wear and tear. Because of this, the grout lines had acquired a darkish tone. The owner was not pleased with the condition of the surfaces, so he tried some DIY cleaning methods he found in a magazine. He spent the day scrubbing the walls and floors. Unfortunately, nothing seemed to work. He considered his options and decided to look for professional assistance. Later, our grout sealing experts in Boston
were able to help him. Thanks to our certified process, his bathroom now has fully protected surfaces and an enhanced appearance.
To find a solution, he went online and searched for the best hard surface restoration company in Boston. The top results led him to Sir Grout of Greater Boston. He decided to check out our website. He went through the site, browsed the Before and After
gallery, and read testimonials from previous satisfied customers. The positive feedback and the outstanding results displayed in the pictures convinced him we could solve the issues in his bathroom. He scheduled a free in-home consultation by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
We arrived at his house a couple of days later for the evaluation of the bathroom and to offer the most effective solution for the restoration. After greeting the owner, we proceeded with the assessment. As we began the inspection, we noticed the problems in the grout lines. They had accumulated dirt, soap, and cleaner residue. As a result, the grout had acquired a darkish unclean appearance. We told the owner that daily wear and tear led to this deterioration. As we continued the evaluation, we learned the grout lines needed sealing. We explained that unsealed grout can absorb any external agent easily and it is vulnerable to degradation. After we finished the assessment, we informed the owner that his bathroom needed our special process for full restoration.
We offered a grout sealing service to protect the grout lines with our top of the line sealant and keep future damages at bay. We would also clean and fix the surfaces with our superior products and professional equipment. We assured the owner his bathroom would have a beautiful new appearance when we were finished. He was happy with the solution we proposed and decided to hire us.
We returned to our client's house to begin the restoration of his bathroom. This procedure requires several steps and our tested methods. We needed to address the damages in the shower and the tub area. For this task, we cleaned the walls and floors using our exclusive pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This top-notch product is soap-free and safe for tiles and grout. Additionally, it now has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. When we completed this step, the bathroom was spotless. Next, we cleaned, patched, and repaired the grout. We thoroughly worked on the walls and floor and fixed all the problems. We were ready for the sealing process.
To seal the grout lines, we applied our state-of-the-art ColorSeal. This product prevents the absorption of liquids and provides protection against dirt, grime, and all other harmful external agents. Once the surface is shielded with our sealant, maintenance isn't a problem because it makes cleaning routines easier and faster. Furthermore, it comes in a wide range of colors so the owner can match the grout with the tiles, enhancing the appearance of their surfaces. We sealed all the grout lines and finished the process.
The bathroom looked incredible. It was completely clean and renewed. We were ready to show the owner the results, so we asked him to enter the bathroom. When he saw the surfaces, he was impressed. He couldn't believe all the problems were gone. The owner was happy because this amazing restoration didn't take much time and it had been cost-effective. Our performance had gone beyond his expectations. He stated that from that point on, Sir Grout of Greater Boston would be his company of choice for any hard surface restoration he might need in the future. After thanking us, the owner said he would certainly recommend our services to everyone he knows.
Before leaving, as we always do with all our clients, we gave the owner some suggestions to perform safer and more effective maintenance. We recommended setting up a weekly cleaning routine using only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residue and won't cause any damage. Furthermore, it now has an antimicrobial agent that provides protection against bacteria and fungi. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We do not recommend using soap-based or acidic cleaners. These products contain harsh agents that can deteriorate the tiles. Moreover, these cleaners leave residue that causes damage to the grout lines and can discolor or even break them. This can lead to more severe issues and structural problems.
Mold and mildew thrive in moist and damp environments. To prevent fungi growth, it is important to keep the bathroom dry and well ventilated. Lower the moisture levels by leaving the door ajar or a window open after using the shower. Always dry the surface with a squeegee, a towel, or a terry cloth. Squeegeeing is a great option to keep the shower free of dirt particles.
