Your floors are one of the most eye-catching parts of your home. Imagine what your guests would think if they saw traces of dirt all over your bathroom floor. A homeowner in Briarcliff Manor was having this dilemma while trying to figure out the cause of her problem. The floor in her guest bathroom didn't look too different to the untrained eye, but the homeowner had kept track of each new stain that appeared on the grout.

Bathroom Floor Before and After a Tile Sealing in Briarcliff Manor
The floor had a unique design made of sharp angles and contrasting colors, and the grout lines were the glue that held it all together. Because of this, it was upsetting to see the grout looking dirtier and the tiles losing all their shine with each day that passed. The homeowner hadn't changed her cleaning routine in any way so she didn't know how to go about making improvements. After weeks of no results, she decided to contact our Briarcliff Manor tile sealing specialists.

For months, she'd heard great things about Sir Grout Westchester and had kept that information in the back of her mind for a rainy day. This was the perfect time to learn more about our services, and the homeowner knew that there was no better option if she was looking for an informed opinion. With all this in mind, she looked for our website online and scheduled an appointment as soon as she got in.

Our techs went to her house on the appointed date for an in-home evaluation. They checked all the tiles and made sure that the grout wasn't coming apart under all the stains. As expected from what the client had told them earlier, the floor looked unhygienic and the tiles' color was muted to the point it made the bathroom look smaller and more cramped. When the client tried to articulate her confusion about a problem that seemed to come out of nowhere, our techs explained how traditional cleaners can worsen the deterioration of tile surfaces. Basically, these products have a high concentration of chemical elements, harsh enough to alter the tiles' color after repeated exposure. Soap-based formulas also keep the dirt trapped between the tiles after covering the grout pores with a foamy film. That's why the grout lines got dirty as soon as the sealant started to fade.

The solution was to clean the floor with Sir Grout's special equipment. And to prevent new stains, our techs needed to apply sealant on the surface. The guest bathroom saw enough foot traffic as it was, and dirt was carried from all parts of the house. Our crew explained that an unsealed surface is bound to get stained quickly, particularly cement-based grout. The client agreed with their assessment and scheduled a new appointment for the restoration.

So, our crew returned a few days later with everything they needed to complete the restoration. First, they soaked the bathroom floor with a surface-safe cleaner and ran a high-speed scrubber several times to spread the product across the entire surface. Our product works quickly and effectively, simplifying the removal of the stains that get stuck between the tiles. Without needing to use any other product, our specialists got rid of all the dirt, leaving the floor looking smooth and ready for the next part of the process.

There was no way to recover the grout's original white color without using the most durable sealant. Our experts applied ColorSeal to each of the grout lines, making sure that the color was even in all parts of the grout before removing all the residue. Thanks to our acrylic-based sealant, homeowners spend less time scraping the dirt off the grout because there's a protective barrier that keeps grime, water, mold, mildew, and grease away from the grout pores. This also means that grout lines can keep their color for longer so nothing is ruining a floor's spotless appearance after you're done cleaning.

The homeowner fell in love with it right away, remarking on how the grout complimented the floor's layout instead of blurring its design. She thanked our team for doing such meticulous work on the grout lines and promised to join her friends and relatives in recommending our restoration service.

Now that the floor's restoration was complete, our techs could take a moment to share some additional cleaning tips. Their first recommendation was to switch from traditional cleaners to pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product has none of the harmful side effects attached to soap-based formulas. For one, removing embedded dirt is much easier, so homeowners only need a mop or a towel to do the job after letting our cleaner sit on the surface for a few minutes. This is possible because it combines high-quality ingredients while reducing the amount of chemical elements in its formula, resulting in maximum cleaning power and no risk of damage on your floors. Our experts also recommended checking the room's ventilation as bathroom surfaces are more prone to dampness, in part due to limited circulation of fresh air. If the ventilation system isn't enough, homeowners can open the windows and doors a few hours a day.

As our specialists explained during their visit, you can upgrade your cleaning program without making major changes in your routine. Even high-traffic surfaces can keep their good looks when homeowners avoid sharp tools and harsh ingredients in their cleaning equipment. Of course, these surfaces still need to be properly sealed, and the experts at Sir Grout Westchester are always ready to provide the best protection.

So, don't lose hope if your cleaning attempts don't yield the desired results. Contact Sir Grout Westchester and we'll help you with useful cleaning pointers and the most thorough restoration method in Briarcliff Manor.
