Our Stone Cleaning Specialists Exceeded All Expectations While Restoring This Floor in Jacksonville
October 09, 2022A business owner in Jacksonville had tried to make the floors of her establishment look better after seeing dirt cling onto the grout. Foot traffic and other activities had brought soil, grime, and grease until the stone floor was discolored, and the grout lines were stained from end to end. With all these elements ruining the establishment's entrance, the owner decided to contact our Jacksonville stone cleaning crew.
She already knew Sir Grout of NE Florida is a reliable company that has serviced other businesses in the area, so it wasn't hard to find our website online. The owner went over our services and checked out our picture gallery before calling our specialists to request an in-home evaluation. After setting up a date for the appointment, she was grateful for having secured the assistance of the best stone restoration specialists in Jacksonville.
When the date arrived, our techs visited the establishment on time for the inspection. At a glance, they could see that the dirt had spread through most of the floor, covering all the grout lines and the marks on the tiles. There were also signs of discoloration caused by exposure to chemical cleaners. Our specialists explained to the client that these are all common when using generic cleaning products, especially when the surface is already subjected to foot traffic for many hours a day. Fortunately, the stone had not been permanently affected, and our specialists had the right equipment to get the dirt off the grout. They described Sir Grout's restoration process to the client, and she was happy to hire their services.
So, our specialists returned a few days later for the restoration. As soon as they arrived at the room, they started cleaning the floors with a pH-neutral cleaner, helping themselves with a high-speed scrubber to ensure no traces of dirt were left behind. Our product maximizes your cleaning results through a high-quality formula that removes all types of stains, from dust and spills to mold and mildew.
The next step of the restoration involved recoloring and sealing the grout. For this, our specialists applied a coat of ColorSeal on all the grout lines, progressively restoring the grout's beauty. Its new color was in perfect harmony with the earthy tones on the different-colored tiles and did a lot to preserve the floor's visual appeal. Our top-grade sealant not only improves the grout's appearance but also keeps mold, mildew, fungi, and different liquids away from the grout's porous surface. It provides the best protection and reduces the scrubbing required in your regular cleaning routine.
Our techs also applied a stone sealant to provide the same degree of protection on the tiles. After removing the sealant's residue, they buffed the whole floor to complete the restoration. Now, everything was ready for the client's evaluation. Our techs called her into the room and let her assess the results. She was beyond satisfied, admiring the grout's transformation and praising the tiles now that they'd recovered their natural color.
Before leaving, our specialists shared some useful cleaning pointers with the client. Public spaces see a lot of foot traffic every day, and it can be difficult to avoid the effect of wear and tear on stone surfaces. Our specialists recommended to use pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner instead of bleach and chemical formulas. Our product doesn't damage the surfaces. It's meant to clean and works more efficiently while removing soil, spills, grime, mold, and other external elements. It leaves stone surfaces shining and helps preserve the sealant's protection through multiple activities. Non-abrasive tools are also ideal for removing the dirt embedded on the surface, so our techs recommended using a mop or a towel over steel wools to get better results. Since the floor was in an open area, it wouldn't take much to prevent moisture buildup, as long as the room maintained the appropriate ventilation system to keep the air circulating. The client thanked our specialists for providing such impressive results and promised to recommend Sir Grout of NE Florida to everyone she knew, both in and out of her professional circle.
