Grout Recoloring Creates the Look of New Grout for Lynnfield Home
September 30, 2015
Alyssa Burke had what she believed was a big problem: the porcelain tile floor in her kitchen, which had been the staple of her Lynnfield home, was no longer shiny or new-looking. Alyssa loved cooking, and hosted cooking parties where she would invite her close friends to follow a recipe and create an amazing meal. Enduring the years of happy cooking, her floor took the brunt of dirt, moisture and foot traffic from thousands of meals and the people who prepared them.
As time went on, the once warm, glossy floor gradually lost its shine. Microscopic particles etched and damaged the tiles. Meanwhile, the grout surrounding the tiles also did not age gracefully. The white, clean lines faded and dried out, slowly turning to a rough, uneven, brownish color. Alyssa's favorite place in the house needed a makeover, pronto. After a recommendation from a friend, she went online and searched for Lynnfield grout recoloring
to find professional experts who could fix her old grout. She quickly found Sir Grout of Greater Boston. Their experience and excellent client reviews made the choice easy for Alyssa -- the very same day, she called Sir Grout, and explained her problem.
Alyssa Burke was right to leave her old, dried out grout to the professionals. Sweeping, vacuuming, or attempting to clean grout with harsh chemicals are not good methods. Not only are these methods not likely to fix the problem, they can actually exacerbate it, as harsh, acidic chemicals can eat away the delicate, old grout, and damage it even further. As time passes, moisture, dirt and mildew warp and destroy old grout, making the once clean, neat grout lines look old, faded, and discolored. Alyssa wanted clean, neat grout lines to once again make her kitchen floor the staple of her home. Sir Grout of Greater Boston was ready to leap to the rescue!
On the day of the job, Sir Grout's trained grout recoloring team assessed the scope of the recoloring job, took several pre-treatment photos, and decided on a plan of action. Sir Grout's expert team settled on a multi-step process to take care of both the grout, and the faded, discolored tiles. First, the team steam-cleaned the kitchen floor, utilizing a proprietary method involving alkaline and neutral cleaning agents to help break down the stubborn, stuck-on dirt, grease, and discoloration. When the steam clean was completed, the team proceeded to phase two of the work: grout recoloring. To complete the grout recoloring, the team turned to ColorSeal with Silverado. ColorSeal is a tinted sealer that serves to fill and eliminate the dirt-trapping pores found on grout, creating a clean, water-resistant layer that protects grout while giving it a new, freshly-applied appearance. Sir Grout of Greater Boston turns to ColorSeal for grout recoloring jobs of all sizes, and considers it one of the best sealers on the market.
When the Sir Grout recoloring team was finished, Alyssa Burke was thrilled upon seeing her "new" kitchen floor. The tiles looked clean and glossy, while the grout lines were fresh, clean, and light-colored. Alyssa was very happy with the results, and was even happier that Sir Grout took care of both cleaning her kitchen floor and recoloring her grout! For Sir Grout of Greater Boston, the job was a complete success. The ColorSeal bonded perfectly, and the steam cleaning went off without a hitch.
