Our Decatur Stone Sealing Pros Helped This Couple, Revamping the Dull Travertine Floor of Their New Home with an Astonishing Look
March 14, 2023A newlywed couple from Decatur recently purchased their first house together. The property had everything they were looking for, and it was equipped with beautiful travertine floors, but the condition of the surface was not ideal. The stone looked dull and the grout lines were full of dirt. Nevertheless, the couple decided to buy the property and solve the problem after they had settled in their new home. After moving, the owners wanted to find a quick solution, and they agreed it was best to hire a professional hard surface restoration company.
The couple called one of their friends and asked for advice. Thankfully, she was a loyal Sir Grout Atlanta client, and highly recommended our Decatur Stone Sealing services, saying we had done an excellent job in her house. Following her suggestion, the owners visited our website to get more information about us. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery, and reading testimonials from our satisfied customers, they asked for a free assessment by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
The request was quickly processed, and in no time, we arrived to provide the in-home consultation. The owners welcomed us into their home and showed us the affected floor. As soon as we entered, we noticed the issues. Wear and tear had left the travertine tiles dull and scratched. The stone was badly etched as well. We explained that this problem occurs when acidic or colorful substances dry on the surface. When this happens, the stone loses its natural beauty. Upon closer look, we learned the surface was unsealed. We told the owners it is important to keep the stone fully sealed to prevent further damages and problems like etching.
After performing a thorough inspection, we had gathered enough information to offer a solution. Since we had determined that common methods wouldn't work, an effective restoration would require Sir Grout's high-end equipment and professional process. We proposed a stone sealing service to rectify the damages, revamp the travertine, and give the surface a protective shield. The owners were happy with the offer and hired us for the job without hesitation.
The restoration of the travertine floor began as scheduled. When we returned to our client's house, we had everything we needed to perform the stone sealing service. To start this thorough multi-step process, we cleaned the surface with our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our exclusive product won't cause any damage to the travertine because it's made with high-quality ingredients. After cleaning, the stone was ready for the honing process. To rectify the damage, we prepared our diamond honing pads and ran three sets, each with increased levels of grit. We continued grinding until there was no sign of deterioration, removing the scratches and the etching. Once we addressed the damages, we followed with the grout repairs.
Dirty and badly stained grout is not easy to restore. Many homeowners find this task troublesome and time-consuming. When the damage is severe, regular cleaning is not effective, but Sir Grout Atlanta has the proper tools and the knowledge to easily fix any kind of issue on this vulnerable component. We worked on the entire surface, giving the grout lines a superb new look. When we finished, we proceeded with the sealing process.
For this task, we sealed the grout lines with ColorSeal. Sir Grout's flagship sealant offers long-lasting results and provides resilient defense. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, making cleaning routines easy and fast. ColorSeal gives the grout a vibrant color and a brand-new appearance, improving the appearance of the floor tenfold. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing homeowners to match the tiles with the grout.
To finish the job, we applied a coating of a protective sealer. Our top-notch product blocks the absorption of liquids, adding an extra layer of protection, and reducing deterioration from daily wear and tear. It also enhances the stone with a renewed appearance and minimizes damage from footsteps. Our work yielded a successful restoration, there were no more problems on the travertine floor, and the surface looked amazing.
After achieving our goal, we called our clients and showed them the results. The owners loved the brand-new appearance of their travertine floor. They were very happy because everything looked perfect, and now they can finally enjoy their new home. The couple said our performance was impressive, and after thanking us, they assured us they would recommend Sir Grout Atlanta to everyone.
Floors that receive heavy foot traffic can deteriorate quickly. For this reason, these areas require proper maintenance and care. Following our recommendation is the best way to prevent damages and deterioration. We suggested setting up a weekly cleaning routine. When performing this chore, use only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike store-bought cleaners, our product doesn't leave any residue and offers many benefits. It is non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets.
We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances that contain acidic properties. These products can harm the stone, causing dull spots, etching, and other issues. It is also important to keep the surface as dry as possible, never leaving liquids or spills lingering for long periods of time. To prevent scratches, clean the floor using paper towels or absorbent cloths. Don't use abrasive tools because they can damage the travertine tiles.
Restoring your damaged travertine floor doesn't have to be impossible or extremely expensive. With Sir Grout Atlanta's assistance, it can be easy and fast.
