It's not every day that the Sir Grout team has the honor of performing a hard floor restoration service for someone who has served in the United States Armed Forces, let alone a Korean and Vietnam War veteran. This veteran from Littleton, CO had a lovely home - unfortunately, he was dealing with a dirty tile floor due to a grimy wax coating, which was making his floors look unappealing. He had tried several different products and cleaning methods, but nothing seemed to clean the floor – it only seemed to get dirtier. He decided to take matters into his own hands and contacted 4 different companies to receive a quote for Littleton tile cleaning services before he found Sir Grout Denver's website. He was impressed by the other jobs our team had done and the excellent recommendations from other homeowners, so he decided to call us for a quote.
When the Sir Grout team came out to his home for the evaluation, they noticed that the tile floor was messy and dirty from years of grime buildup on top of the wax finish, which was also making the grout lines look dirty. Most homeowners like to wax their floors because it maintains the shine and protects them from wear, but even though wax can make floors look shiny and bright, wax builds up over time and gives the floor a dingy look. Using more wax only makes the problem worse since each layer makes the buildup yellower and thicker, and the thicker the buildup, the more difficult it becomes to remove. Add foot-traffic and the wrong cleaning methods and products, and the floor will look unclean even after a lot of elbow grease.
The homeowner was looking for a solution that could fix his problem without having to go through an expensive renovation. After the inspection, the team decided that the best option was to strip the wax buildup and perform a deep tile cleaning service to restore the floor to its original condition.
On the day of the job, the team proceeded to chemically remove the dirty and grimy old layer of wax from the floor using an alkaline stripper. Once this was done, we proceeded to clean the floors with a pH-neutral, non-toxic cleaner to make sure the tile floor was spotless and pristine. With just these two steps, the floor had already changed completely. The original color of the tile floor, which was concealed under layers of dirt, was now visible and clean. Since our team wanted to make sure the floor looked absolutely perfect for the homeowner, they decided to add one final touch and applied ColorSeal to the grout lines. ColorSeal is a sealant that not only recolors grout but also makes it impervious to stains, making the cleanup process easier for the homeowner and guaranteeing that the grout lines maintain a fresh look for years to come.
Once we finished the job, we invited the homeowner to inspect the results. The homeowner was very pleased – he congratulated our staff on a job well-done and even agreed to give us a testimonial, which you can see below. It was certainly a privilege for Sir Grout to serve such a distinguished member of our community!
Before we left, we made sure we gave the homeowner some helpful tips for maintaining his now-impeccable floor. To keep his floors looking in tip top shape, we recommended the use of neutral and soap-less cleaners and regular cleaning.
