A Ceramic Tile Floor Received a Brand-New Appearance Thanks to Our Tile Sealing in La Grande, IL
July 17, 2020Maintaining ceramic tile floors can be a difficult task. Depending on the area, floors can be under heavy foot traffic. This wear and tear can take a toll on the surfaces, leading to quick deterioration. A homeowner in La Grande, IL contacted us because the ceramic floors in her property had an unsightly appearance. The tiles had lost their beauty, and the grout lines were full of dirt.
The homeowner cleaned the floors regularly, but she couldn't solve the issue. None of her methods and techniques seemed to work. Seeing that the floors showed no signs of improvement, she went online and searched for tile sealing experts in La Grande, IL. She found Sir Grout Chicago in the top search results.
After browsing the picture gallery and watching a few video testimonials, she felt confident in our ability to restore the floors. She filled in the form to request a free assessment and a quote.
We visited the client's place a few days later to assess the condition of the floors. When we first saw the surfaces, we noticed the tiles looked run-down and unappealing. The grout lines had accumulated dirt as a result of heavy foot traffic. Because of this, the entire surface looked dirty. We explained that daily wear and tear had led to the floor's deterioration. As we continued the evaluation, we found it was necessary to seal the tiles. We told the homeowner it was important to keep the surface sealed to prevent damage caused by external agents.
Solving the problem would require our top-notch processes and hard surface expertise. We offered the customer a tile cleaning and sealing service to remove all the blemishes and shield the surface to protect it long-term. The client agreed to our proposal and scheduled a date for the job.
On the scheduled day, we returned to the client's home to perform the service. We began the restoration by cleaning the surfaces using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our cleaning solution contains high-quality components, including enhanced properties that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold and microorganisms. Once we extracted the dirt and debris from the tiles and grout lines, we inspected the floor's joints to ensure they were in good shape.
Next, we coated the grout on every surface with our proprietary sealant, ColorSeal. This superior sealant shuts off the grout's pores, protecting it against water, spills, stains, dirt, mold, and mildew. It also improves the overall appearance of the surface by giving the grout a vibrant new color. The client chose a color that matched the tiles to achieve a more uniform appearance. To finish the job, we sealed the tiles using our flagship sealant, Tile Armor. This is an impregnating sealant that protects tile against wear and tear. It also enhances the tiles by giving them a beautiful finish.
The homeowner was thrilled with the results. She loved the clean-looking appearance of the ceramic floors in her home. She thanked us for the job and promised to recommend our services to her friends and family.
Common areas in a home are subjected to high foot traffic. For that reason, we gave the homeowner a few tips to ensure the floors remained in good condition. We first suggested cleaning the floors regularly using a pH-neutral soap-free cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike most store-bought products, this cleaner doesn't contain harmful substances that lead to costly repairs. We also recommended wiping spills away as soon as they happen. On top of helping prevent stains and dirt accumulation, this practice helps maintain the grout lines in good condition. To finish, we advised the client to keep an eye on the floor's sealant. To do this, the homeowner should periodically place a few drops of water on the ceramic tiles. If the water seeps in, the floor must be re-sealed.
