The Best Canton Stone Cleaning Service Reveals This Travertine Floor's True Beauty
December 05, 2021It had been a couple of months since this young couple moved into their new home in Canton. They had fallen in love with the house after their first visit and, since then, they had worked hard to bring all the warmth and comfort of a good home. The beautiful travertine tiles running through a large expanse of the floors had captured the couple's attention from the start.
With their earthy shade and natural shine, travertine surfaces are usually all you need to make a room look elegant and welcoming at the same time. Because they had limited experience looking after stone surfaces, the couple was careful in the maintenance of their travertine floors, always making sure to avoid sharp tools and removing spills swiftly to avoid leaving a permanent stain.
In the time it took to settle into their new home, they failed to remove some dirt from the grout lines that their floors had been collecting long before they moved into the house. The tiles had grown even duller since then, and there was no way to see the grout lines' actual color because of all the dirt that clung to their pores. After making this discovery, the couple wasted no time and set out to find the best Canton Stone Cleaning service. Their search led them to Sir Grout of Greater Boston, and soon after they filled our website's form, our specialists were at their place to conduct a free in-home evaluation.
During the inspection, we went through the house's floors many times, checking the state of the grout and the areas where the stone looked particularly worn down. The tiles had absorbed large amounts of grime and dirt, likely from constant foot traffic. The grout was similarly affected since there was no sealant protecting its pores. To the couple's shock, we clarified that a majority of generic cleaning products have acidic properties that make stone surfaces more susceptible to damage. They were relieved when we told them that the damage could be fixed, but only with a professional cleaning and sealing service that could stop the problem for good. After the clients hired our restoration services, we set up a new appointment to work on the floor.
Our specialists began the process a few days later, cleaning the entire floor surface with a stone-safe, pH-neutral cleaner and a high-end scrubber. Not only does our product restore travertine's shine, but it also removes all sorts of stains. Then, they sealed the stone to protect its surface before moving on to the grout lines.
To work on the grout, we used professional diamond saws to fix the damaged areas. We had verified that there was no major structural damage upon inspection, so now that the grout was free of dirt and residue, it was time to begin sealing. Our specialists applied a coat of ColorSeal to keep the grout lines protected in the long run. Our flagship sealant blocks the access of dirt, dust specs, mold, mildew, and other external elements. Moreover, it is available in multiple colors, so clients can make their grout blend with their tiles or have them pop out in a very flattering way. The couple chose a white pigment that worked perfectly with the travertine's renewed vibrancy. At the end of the process, we buffed the floor for good measure and removed all residue from around the grout lines.
The clients were ecstatic when we finished the process and invited them to see the results. They had expected to find all traces of dirt gone from their floors, but they had no idea that travertine was meant to look this good. They thanked our specialists and said they would call Sir Grout of Greater Boston if they happened to find other inconsistencies in their home's surfaces.
We left the clients with some useful tips. To clean their stone surfaces, we recommended using only pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product provides thorough cleaning without damaging or blemishing the stone, serving as the perfect asset to counter dirt buildup. It is also free of chemical components that could contaminate your spaces when left to dry on a surface, so there's no danger when it's used on the regular for areas that sustain constant foot traffic. The couple took note of our recommendations and were happy to confirm that they had already been following other important steps to keep their floors in proper condition. We told them to continue using clean mops and dry towels to avoid scratching the tiles and reminded them to allow fresh air in to prevent moisture
