A Grout Cleaning and Sealing Service in Manhattan Provided the Best Solution to Restore and Protect This Damaged Office Building Restroom
January 24, 2019
Public restrooms are subjected to heavy wear and tear. As a result, surfaces are likely to receive damage and become unappealing. Natural stones like marble or granite offer the sturdiness a public restroom needs, but there are several factors to consider. For instance, using harsh cleaning products can cause extensive damage. Acidic substances can deteriorate the stone. When this happens, stains and dull spots blemish the surface and can't be removed with conventional methods. Furthermore, tiled surfaces need grout. This is a vulnerable component because it is commonly cement-based and porous, it readily absorbs all sorts of external agents like dirt, grime, cleaner residue, and water. Damaged grout lines acquire a darkish tone and unclean appearance. Professionals like Sir Grout New York can clean and seal the grout safely and successfully, restoring the surface and preventing future damages.
An office building in Manhattan had a restroom that was equipped with marble tiles. Because of the heavy daily use, the surfaces suffered deterioration. The floor was besmirched by stains and dirt accumulation in the grout lines. The cleaning staff performed regular maintenance, but they were having a difficult time trying to solve the issues. They tried using several cleaning products. Unfortunately, they experienced only negative results. They notified the manager and he went to assess the situation. He immediately noticed the bad condition of the restroom. After some consideration, he decided to look for professional assistance. This decision led him to find our grout cleaning
and sealing service in Manhattan, NY
He later told us one of his friends had recommended us. We had worked on her travertine floors and she was very happy with the results. She suggested going online to get more information. He followed her advice and went to visit our site. He carefully went through our website, read testimonials from our previous satisfied customers, and checked the pictures in the picture gallery
. The pictures and the positive feedback were a testament to the success and quality of our service. After browsing our site, he was convinced we could help him, so he decided to schedule a free consultation by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
We arrived at the building a couple of days later for the evaluation of the restroom and to offer the most effective solution for the problems. After greeting the manager, we proceeded with the assessment. We noticed at first glance that the marble tiles were dirty and stained. We told the manager using products with harsh chemical properties had caused more damage to the stone. As we continued the inspection, we observed the grout lines suffered from accumulation of dirt and grime. This gave the entire surface an unclean appearance. We also learned that the grout lines were unsealed. This left the grout exposed to all sorts of damage from external agents because it is porous and can easily absorb dirt, liquids, and cleaner residue. We informed the manager that the restroom required our special process for full restoration.
We offered a grout cleaning and sealing service to remove all the damages and protect the marble tiles. We assured the manager all the problems on the restroom's surfaces would be gone when we were finished. He was pleased with the solution we proposed, so he decided to hire us and we set up a date for the job.
We returned to the office building to begin the restoration of the restroom. This procedure consists of several steps and requires our tested techniques and professional equipment. We began by cleaning the marble floor using our exclusive stone-safe pH-neutral natural hard surface cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This top-notch product is soap-free and won't cause any damage. Moreover, it won't discolor or stain the marble tiles. Additionally, it has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. When we completed this step, everything was spotless. We continued by cleaning the grout and performing the necessary repairs. We thoroughly worked on the entire surface until all the problems were fixed.
Once we finished the repairs, we were ready to perform the sealing process. We sealed the grout lines with the best sealant, our state-of-the-art ColorSeal. This top of the line product closes off water absorption and wards off damages from dirt, grime, and all other harmful external agents. Thanks to its special properties, maintaining the surface isn't a problem because it makes cleaning routines easier and faster. Furthermore, it has a large selection and variety of colors. This allows the owner to match the grout with the tiles and improve the appearance of the entire surface. When we finished all the steps, the restroom looked beautiful and brand-new.
We showed the results to our client. He was pleasantly surprised when he saw the restroom because it looked completely different. The marble tiles and the grout lines were in top condition and fully protected to endure heavy daily use. The manager was happy with our work and said he couldn't believe this amazing restoration had been cost-effective and fast. After thanking us, he stated that from that point on, he would recommend our services to everyone he knows.
Before leaving, we left the cleaning staff some suggestions for safer and more effective maintenance. We recommended using pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product doesn't leave residue that could deteriorate the marble tiles. Moreover, its improved formula provides protection against bacteria and fungi. Clean the restroom regularly to prevent the accumulation of dirt particles.
We do not recommend using soap-based or acidic cleaners. These products contain harsh agents that can deteriorate the stone, leaving stains or dull spots on the surface. They can also leave residue that causes damage to the grout lines and can discolor or even break them. This can lead to more severe issues like water leakage. In addition, we suggested avoiding dirty mops when cleaning the surface. Rinsing a dirty mop into the cleaning solution leads to grime build-up. For this reason, they should only use clean mops.
