See How Our Grout Cleaning Specialists Improved the Appearance of a Commercial Restroom in Orlando, FL
February 22, 2021When it comes to today's highly competitive business environment, having a clean-looking commercial building is no longer a matter of choice, it's a must. A customer's willingness to do business with you is not only influenced by the products or services you offer but also by the environment's appearance. Therefore, having a hygienic space can be used as another marketing tool that can further increase your income and reputation. Proper maintenance keeps both the infrastructure and its occupants safe, which is why it should always be a top priority.
That exact line of thinking is what led a manager in Gencor Industries to hire our grout cleaning experts in Orlando, FL. The grout on one of the restrooms had become dirty and stained. The maintenance team had tried cleaning the grout lines using different products, but none of them yielded positive results. Seeing that his team's efforts had been in vain, the manager decided to search online for advice. After browsing several websites, he found these problems tend to happen when the grout isn't sealed. With this in mind, he concluded it was best to leave the job to professionals. After searching for a local reputable company, he found our website. While he browsed the picture gallery, he observed we had achieved great results. This prompted him to fill in the form to request a free assessment and a quote.
On the scheduled day, our team arrived at Gencor's building to determine the best possible solution to the problem at hand. After they thoroughly inspected the surface, they concluded the sealant had worn out. Sealants are the only protective layer between the grout and harmful external agents. Without it, dirt can easily accumulate on the grout's pores and give it a dingy look. When our tech asked the client when was the last time he had the floor sealed, he couldn't remember.
Fortunately, the integrity of the surface wasn't compromised. They would only need to perform a grout cleaning and sealing service. The manager asked if he could have the color of the grout lines changed to a clean white. That way the restroom would have a more hygienic appearance. Our crew assured the customer they could by coating the grout lines with ColorSeal. The client agreed to the service and scheduled an appointment for the next day.
The following day, our crew went back to the commercial building to perform the service. They began with a thorough cleaning of the restroom's floor. To do this, they soaked the surface with a pH-neutral cleaner that's safe for both tile and grout. It also contains properties that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. After they let the cleaner sit on the floor for a few minutes, they used a high-speed scrubber to extract the dirt from the tiles and grout lines. They also used a steam cleaner to extract the deep-seated grime.
When they finished cleaning, our techs prepared the floor for the sealing procedure. To do this, they dried the surface and inspected the grout lines to ensure they were in good shape. Next they carefully applied ColorSeal to the grout lines. ColorSeal is an acrylic-based sealant that protects grout from unwanted moisture, stains, dirt, mold, and mildew. The color was white, as requested by the customer.
As shown by the pictures, the clean-looking grout completely changed the appearance of the surface. The manager was thrilled with the outcome. He thanked our experts and said he would call us back for maintenance.
Before leaving, our team gave the customer some maintenance tips to preserve the floor in its current state. They first suggested cleaning the floor at least three times per week using a pH-neutral cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. On top of being safe for tile and grout, this cleaning solution contains all the necessary ingredients to prolong the lifespan of ColorSeal. They also recommended keeping the floor as dry as possible. Excess moisture in restrooms is often responsible for a myriad of problems, so it's best to keep it at bay.
