Selling Your Home? Read How This Marietta Homeowner Saved Thousands of Dollars with a Grout Cleaning Service
February 23, 2017This homeowner from the beautiful city of Marietta, Georgia, was ready to list her home for sale, but before doing that, she wanted to get her apartment's bathroom in great shape without having to spend a fortune on remodeling. She had been living in that apartment for some years, and the property had never had any type of professional maintenance service done. She didn't know where to start, so she decided to do an online search for cost-effective alternatives to remodeling. That is how she found Sir Grout Atlanta's tile cleaning services in Marietta. She came across one of our tile and grout cleaning blog posts, and after she read it and saw a couple of video testimonials, she decided to fill out our form to request a free evaluation and quote. We quickly got back to her and were able to set a date for the assessment.
On the day of the evaluation, it was raining heavily, so we got there a little later than expected. We immediately apologized for the delay and proceeded to inspect the area the homeowner wanted serviced. We pinpointed the problems and explained to her what needed to be done to recover the look of the bathroom. There was a lot of mold and mildew buildup on the grout lines, and soap scum had accumulated on many of the tiles, especially in the areas near the soap dish. We came to the conclusion that a tile and grout cleaning service was the key to significantly improving the look of this old bathroom. The original color of the tiles was vintage, probably from the eighties. Since this type of décor is currently in trend, getting the tiles back to what they looked like when they were first installed would significantly increase the appeal of the property. We discussed the service with the homeowner and agreed to come back a few days later to do the job.
To remove all the soap scum, mold, and mildew from the tiles and grout lines, we applied our own special tile and grout cleaner to the entire surface, and we used a high-speed scrubber to extract all the grime from the surface. We then steam cleaned hard-to-reach areas and those that were particularly dirty. After a thorough cleaning, we used our proprietary product – Tile Armor – to seal the surface, adding a protective layer against stains and spills. Tile Armor is a non-toxic sealer that leaves tile floors looking bright and renewed while also making them easier to clean. It is safe for both families and pets.
After the job was done, the client let us know that she was extremely satisfied with the results. She told us that the cost-benefit ratio of the service we provided made it definitely worth it. She told us that if she had known better, she would have done this years ago so she could have enjoyed it before moving. Now, the apartment was ready to be included in real estate listings, and she could get a higher appraisal for the property. She couldn't have asked for more.
