Entire Hotel Lobby in Jacksonville Gets Fully Revamped by Our Stone Cleaning Services
October 04, 2023The management of a hotel in Jacksonville, FL, was fed up with the condition of the hotel's surfaces. Thankfully, they found Sir Grout, and we were able to assist them. After long periods of wear and tear, the hotel's surfaces took an unappealing appearance. Despite the management's best cleaning efforts, they noticed no progress. This restoration happened to be outside the cleaning staff's reach.
The management opted to hire professionals after seeing no results. Luckily, their search took them to Sir Grout of NE Florida. They came across our website while looking for a stone cleaning company in Jacksonville, Florida. They were confident we were the best in town after looking through our picture gallery and seeing the commercial services we'd provided in the past. They contacted us, explained the problem, and requested a free on-site consultation.
We went to the hotel a couple of days after the request. We were immediately aware of the problems and presented an effective solution shortly after. The grout lines were opaque and disastrous, and the limestone tiles had lost their vibrantness. As a result, the entire surface took on an unappealing appearance. We determined that the grout needed to be sealed after taking a closer look. This sensitive component's porous nature allows it to absorb external substances. This can result in fast deterioration and structural damage. Following the examination, we came to the conclusion that our team had to intervene. We offered a stone cleaning multi-step procedure to restore the several thousand square feet of surfaces and the management decided to work with us, since they'd finally found a solution.
After the arranged appointment, we returned to restore the natural limestone. We began our comprehensive stone cleaning process by scrubbing the surface with our unique stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our product is pH-neutral and soap-free, and won't harm the tiles or grout. Our cleaning thoroughly loosened the filth, and our equipment scraped it away. Then, to remove any dirt that had become stuck, we steam cleaned the area. After the surfaces were spotless, we were ready to replace the grout. We worked on the entire surface with expert diamond saws until we were able to correct all of the defects.
Following the grout repair, we continued the sealing procedure. To ensure long-lasting results, we used Sir Grout's ColorSeal. Our top-of-the-line sealant comes with a broad range of benefits and provides unmatched protection. It repels dirt, grime, and other exterior impurities, preventing discoloration and structural damage. ColorSeal improves the appearance of the surface by giving the grout lines a new look and uniform color. It comes in a range of colors, allowing the owners to have several options. The surfaces were then honed with a low grit diamond pad to eliminate all of the etch traces, and they gradually increased the grit to even out the limestone. Finally, using a low-speed buffer, our team polished the surfaces to give them a smoother look and feel.
When we were finished, the whole lobby (bar, restrooms, restaurant, and elevator cabs) looked magnificent, and the limestone surface had regained its original appeal. Our clients were amazed with the results of our work. They were pleased with how smoothly and effectively the procedure had gone. They expressed their gratitude and said they would have Sir Grout of NE Florida perform monthly maintenance at their hotel.
Lobbies demand regular cleaning and upkeep. These surfaces are subjected to a lot of everyday activity and can soon deteriorate. The easiest approach to keep these areas looking good is to follow our advice. We recommend using only soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is produced with high-quality components and leaves no residue. It's also non-toxic and safe for pets. Soap-based cleaners and acidic substances should be avoided. These substances can harm natural stones, causing dull patches, etching, and other issues. It's also critical to maintain the stone dry. Use a terry cloth or a towel to clean the floors. Steel wool and other abrasive tools should not be used on the tiles since they can get scratched.
