A Stone Cleaning in Boston, MA, Completely Refreshed This Bathroom Floor
August 13, 2018Sometimes homeowners pay more attention to the regular maintenance of specific rooms than others. Our next customer, a Boston resident, made the mistake of neglecting the weekly clean up of her guest bathroom floor, but luckily, she realized the problem just in time to hire our stone cleaning services in Boston, MA.
When the woman moved into her beautiful new house, she decided to install white marble on the guest bathroom floor, combined with white tiles next to the stone surface. She had a part-time job, so she had enough time to deep clean her home. Since she decided to have marble surfaces in the guest bathroom, she knew the natural stone needed special care. For that reason, she planned a weekly cleaning routine for the marble to keep its original beauty.
After months of performing regular maintenance, the owner thought that cleaning the guest bathroom on a regular basis was not necessary because it was downstairs and wasn't used very often, so she thought the surface would not deteriorate if she didn't clean it as often as she cleaned her master bathroom.
Little by little, as time passed, the natural stone floor in the guest bathroom started to gain a dull appearance on the tiles and a dirty look on the grout lines. The woman didn't notice the issue until one of her relatives visited and mentioned the grout had a yellowish look that stood out from the rest of the floor. When the family member told her what he saw, she was worried and felt guilty for neglecting the natural stone surface of the guest bathroom floor.
The homeowner decided to do something about the appearance of the marble bathroom floor. That same week, she bought some products to resolve the problem before it got worse. After she cleaned the surface, she saw the grout lines were not better at all. She believed that maybe more than one session would be necessary to change the situation, so she kept trying for weeks to deep clean the natural stone and the grout. There were no positive results. In fact, she noticed the floor was getting worse and realized that no matter how many more times she tried, nothing good happened. She decided to look for professional help immediately.
Since she had no idea about a reliable company to restore the natural stone surface, she asked her father about the experts he'd hired a few months back to clean his granite countertop. He mentioned that the company he hired was Sir Grout of Greater Boston. He assured her the outcome had been outstanding. She trusted her father's opinion and searched online for the company. While browsing our website, she read about the different hard surface services we offered. Additionally, when she read that Sir Grout had more locations all over the US, she was convinced we were the right choice to clean her guest bathroom floor. She called us and set up a date for the free in-home consultation.
On the appointment day, our stone cleaning professionals visited the customer's home to evaluate the bathroom floor and to offer the best solution possible. The experts entered the room and immediately noticed the grout lines were full of dirt and the stone looked dull. They explained that the lack of regular maintenance and the use of harsh products had most likely affected the appearance of the marble. The homeowner asked if something could be done to bring back the original look of the marble surface and our specialists proposed a stone cleaning job. She accepted the proposal and scheduled another date for the job.
On the day set, our technicians returned to the house to begin the restoration process. The first step was cleaning the surface. Since our experts knew the nature and composition of the stone, they knew what products to use in this procedure, so they applied Sir Grout's non-toxic cleaner on the marble floor and mentioned that our proprietary products contain certain advantageous properties. In addition, these cleaners can now help inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and mold. They used a brush vertical scrubber to remove the dirt accumulated from the stone and the grout lines and they used vapor steam to eliminate any trace of grime.
The next and final step was applying our proprietary sealant, ColorSeal. Our team explained that this high-quality product is resistant to water, stains, and mold and mildew. In addition, ColorSeal gives the grout a uniform color.
Once our crew finished, they showed the natural stone floor to the client. She was thrilled to see that the grout lines were completely clean and looked like brand-new. We recovered the natural beauty of the marble. She thanked us for the job and said she would recommend our company to anyone having hard surfaces problems.
Before leaving, our stone cleaners wanted to offer some recommendations to the homeowner to keep her marble floor looking great. They suggested cleaning the surface weekly using stone-safe products such as our proprietary cleaners to prevent damaging the grout lines. Also, they advised her to keep the bathroom floor as dry as possible.
