Our Tile Cleaning Renewed the Appearance of This Run-Down Public Restroom in Middletown, NJ
October 17, 2019When it comes to commercial buildings, cleanliness plays an important role in achieving a welcoming environment. This is especially true for public restrooms. Not only are their surfaces subjected to heavy wear and tear, they're also exposed to bacteria and other external agents. For this reason, a certain number of preventive measures should be taken to ensure that a restroom's surfaces are both in good shape and presentable to visitors. The manager of a commercial property in Middletown, NJ understood the importance of offering clean and attractive facilities. Over the past few months, however, he had observed with distress how the floor in the property's public restroom became increasingly deteriorated.
No matter how hard they tried or which products they used, the maintenance staff couldn't get the floor back in shape. Since the surface was still an unappealing sight and they were wasting resources, the manager decided to solve the situation by hiring a company with the necessary expertise in hard surface restoration. He went online and searched for tile cleaning experts in Middletown, NJ. He immediately found Sir Grout Central New Jersey among the top search results. After watching several video testimonials, he called to request a free assessment and a quote.
On the appointed date, we visited the commercial property to assess the restroom's floor. The manager greeted us and after a brief introduction we proceeded with the inspection of the surface. At first glance, we noticed the tiles looked discolored and the grout lines were filled with grime. Because of this, the floor had acquired a dark look that made the entire bathroom appear unclean. It was clear to us that the floor hadn't been professionally cleaned in a long time, so it could no longer be restored by conventional means. Solving the task would require professional tools, methods, and techniques.
Luckily we had the tools and knowledge to give the client exactly what he needed. We guaranteed the customer we could renew the floor's appearance with a tile cleaning and sealing service. We'd use our proprietary sealant ColorSeal to seal the grout lines and our high durability coating to seal the tiles. Pleased with the solution we had proposed, the manager agreed to the service.
On the day of the job, we returned to the building to perform the service. We began by cleaning the floor's ceramic tiles and grout using Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Not only does our proprietary cleaning solution protect tile and grout, but it also contains agents that inhibit the growth of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms after it has been applied. Next, we used a steam cleaner to extract the most stubborn grime and to remove any trace of mold and mildew.
Once we made sure the grout lines were in good shape, we covered them with ColorSeal. This top-of-the-line sealant protects grout against water, stains, mold, and mildew. It also comes in a variety of colors to match any tile. The customer chose brown to give the floor a more uniform color. To finish, we coated the floor's tiles with a high durability coating. This is an impregnating sealant that protects tile against chemical damage and abrasive wear. It also enhances the tile's appearance by giving it a wet look.
When we finished, we let the client see the results. He was thrilled to see that the restroom's floor no longer looked dirty and unappealing. The tiles and grout lines had a brand-new charm as if they had been freshly installed. After thanking us, he stated that Sir Grout Central New Jersey would be his go-to choice for any hard surface restoration moving forward.
Before leaving, we gave the cleaning staff a few tips for a safer and more effective maintenance. We first recommended cleaning the restroom regularly using a damp mop and a neural cleaning solution like our proprietary cleaner. Unlike most store-bought products, this cleaner doesn't contain acidic substances or soap. We also suggested keeping the floor as dry as possible. Excess moisture in areas subjected to high foot traffic leads to dingy surfaces. These two practices should be enough to keep the surface in good shape until our next maintenance session.
When the daily wear and tear stemming from foot traffic has become too much for you to handle on your own, make sure to contact the leading experts in the field of hard surface restoration.
