For many people, the kitchen is the most sacred part of the house, so it's not rare to see how a dirty kitchen can automatically kill a homeowner's motivation. A Tacoma resident became more familiar with that bleak mindset the more she spent trying to salvage her kitchen floor. When buying her current home, she knew cleaning such a vast kitchen area would be tricky, but the homeowner and her family had always met the challenge head-on. Only recently, their efforts had stopped paying off, and the floor's grout was the most affected by weeks' worth of dirt.

Kitchen Floor Before and After a Grout Cleaning in Tacoma
No matter how often she tried scrubbing the grout lines daily, the homeowner didn't manage to detach the thick layer of grime and soil. And just when she started losing hope of finding a solution, someone recommended contacting Sir Grout South Sound. The homeowner went online looking for more information and became impressed by our website's content, particularly the beautiful results on display in our picture gallery. She went to our "Request a Quote" form and asked for an in-home evaluation, hoping to get an informed opinion from our Tacoma grout cleaning crew.

Our techs visited the client's home on the agreed-upon date to check the kitchen floor. They observed the grout and the tiles to find the extent of the damage. There was no denying that the grout was in poor shape; the sealant had faded long ago, so the grout lines had absorbed all the dirt carried around the kitchen. The ceramic had no lasting damage but still looked dull and lifeless. This was to be expected with all the foot traffic around the kitchen area, but the effect had been worsened by some of the cleaners used inside the household. Our techs were sure that Sir Grout's cleaning equipment would bring out the tiles' shine, so they offered to provide a complete cleaning and sealing service to preserve the kitchen floor. The client was grateful for our assessment and didn't hesitate before scheduling a new appointment.

She welcomed our techs back into her home a few days later and left them to work on the floor. Our techs started by soaking the tile and grout with a pH-neutral cleaner and letting it sit for a few minutes as it worked its magic on the floor. Then, they removed the embedded dirt with the help of a high-speed scrubber. Our product works fast to reach the soil, grime, mold, and product residue that slips between the tiles. It also restores the ceramic's vibrant colors without opening the pores on its surface.

When it was time to seal the grout, our specialists applied ColorSeal to all the grout lines. Our flagship sealant is the surest way to keep the grout clean at all hours of the day. It protects the grout pores against water, grease, mold, mildew, grime, and mud, resulting in fewer stains. In addition, our sealant always makes the grout look good because it's available in different colors to match different settings and backgrounds. The client wanted her grout to keep a lighter shade of brown on the tiles, and our specialists followed her specifications to the last detail.

The result made the kitchen look lively and elegant at the same time. No wonder the client was happy as soon as she entered the room. She thanked our specialists for doing an outstanding job and promised to recommend our service to all her friends and relatives in Tacoma.

Our techs shared some additional cleaning pointers while they prepared to leave the client's home. When she asked about solutions to avoid exposing hard surfaces to chemical ingredients, our techs recommended using pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product combines all the advantages of a successful cleaning routine. It works quickly and efficiently to get old stains loose on the surface, complementing the sealant's protection without hurting the grout pores after regular use. This powerful cleaner is the main ingredient to optimize routine maintenance, even in large areas subjected to constant foot traffic.

It's not hard to miss minor stains on such a large surface until it's time to do the chores, so our techs reminded the client to keep an eye out for any stains left after cooking and other activities. Dealing with the marks left by spills, damp products, and water from the sink can significantly prevent moisture buildup in the most secluded parts of the room. Optimal indoor ventilation also helps on this front, so our techs praised the home's ventilation system and instructed the client to open the windows occasionally. Last but not least, they recommended avoiding steel wools and other abrasive tools that could scratch the tiles after an intense round of scrubbing.
