Grout Recoloring Gives New Life to This Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts Resident's Home
March 15, 2016It always gets a little scary when your grout becomes deteriorated. Even with regular maintenance, kitchen surfaces inevitably get stains over time, and sometimes they are not the type that you can easily clean with household products. That was the case for one Boston homeowner, from Chestnut Hill, MA, who learned firsthand how difficult it could be to keep her unsealed tile and grout clean. Our client had previously invested money in designing her kitchen with beautiful tile and wanted it to look new again.
She tried to maintain it with routine cleaning, but little did she know, the maintenance cleaning process inadvertently created more stains as the household cleaning products along with dirty mop water caused the dirt to get stuck in the porous surfaces. Her bathroom grout eventually caught up with her as well and became stained to the point where it required professional help. With the holidays coming, this concerned homeowner was concerned her house wouldn't look decent enough for her family. She decided to find a local Chestnut Hill grout recoloring service, and found herself reading reviews for Sir Grout of Greater Boston. She learned it was a highly recommended company, so she booked an appointment. Fortunately, Sir Grout Boston would soon come to the rescue.
Even under the best conditions, tile floors and grout lines can become stained. This is because grout is a porous material that can easily absorb spills and become discolored or stained when dirt seeps into its pores. When using traditional cleaning methods such as mops, sometimes the grout ends up looking even worse because you end up pushing dirty water over the floor, which seeps into the grout.
It was a good thing she called -- the kitchen tile was stained to the point where it was difficult to differentiate the tile from the grout. It was originally a dark brown tile, and the bathroom tile was stained due to heavy foot traffic. Upon arriving at our client's home, the professionals examined the state of her grout. They determined that a thorough cleaning was the first thing that needed to be done.
Sir Grout's professional cleaning starts with removing dirt in grout lines that cannot be achieved from regular cleaning methods. This is accomplished by using of a special pH-neutral cleaner that would not harm the homeowner's tile and grout. Then, the professionals deep cleaned and removed dirt from her kitchen and bathroom grout with a gentle high-speed scrubber. After a thorough cleaning, the team made the choice to apply their comprehensive ColorSeal service.
ColorSeal is a layer of sealer that adds color to the grout at the same time. The ColorSeal treatment filled the pores and made the grout look just as new as the day the tiles were first installed. After that, a layer of Tile Armor protective solution was applied to Janet's tile surfaces. Tile Armor is both water-based and non-toxic. ColorSeal is also a non-toxic odorless solution, so it's safe for all family members, including pets! Take a look at the amazing results below!
As for her bathroom, the experts applied the same formula: the professionals assessed the scope of the job, and settled on a thorough cleaning for the tiles and grout recoloring for the faded grout lines using our tinted sealer ColorSeal. It both removed and filled the pores that trapped dirt within grout lines, creating a clean, water-resistant layer that protects grout while giving the appearance of new grout. The final result was a beautiful, clean bathroom that looked like new, with light-colored grout lines. Our client was extremely happy with the results. "I am so happy with the work," she said. "The color choices, which I worked out with Chris, are optimal for the tiles and the look I was hoping for. I would be happy to recommend your company and your team!"
