This Marietta Resident Found the Way to Raise the Value of His Home with a Grout Recoloring Service
December 27, 2016
A couple in Marietta, GA was getting ready to sell their house, and they wanted to receive a great offer on their home. After the realtor inspected their house, he gave them an appraisal. The couple talked it over, but they were not very satisfied with the appraised value. They thought their house was worth a lot more. The realtor explained that the run-down and dull porcelain floor lowered the value of their property. Therefore, they needed to improve it. The problem was that the homeowners were not ready to tear down the porcelain floor and get a new one. They needed a faster and less expensive option.
The realtor wanted to help the couple so they could sell their house at a better price, so he recommended them to look for a grout recoloring service. Since the couple was internet savvy, they searched the web for a Marietta grout recoloring
service. They found the Sir Grout Atlanta website among the top search engine results. The homeowners browsed our website, read the testimonials, watched our videos, and even read some before and after blog posts. They also decided to ask some friends for recommendations, who confirmed that Sir Grout was an excellent choice. So, the couple decided to schedule an appointment with us.
When our team arrived, they first gave the customers an assessment of the floor's condition and what needed to be done. The floor was dingy, and the grout's color had become dark, which made it look as if it was full of dirt. They asked the couple what products they used to clean their porcelain floor and how they would describe their cleaning routine. It didn't come as a surprise to the team when they found out that the homeowners were using acidic cleaners, as this is a common issue. Many homeowners tend to use conventional cleaners found in stores, and most of these products have acidic components that ruin your tile.
Our team knew they had to thoroughly clean the porcelain floor. They began by cleaning it with a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed vertical scrubber, which is designed to carefully clean tiles. Then, they used vapor steam to clean hard-to-reach areas. Now that the porcelain tiles had been cleaned and dried, they were ready to be sealed with ColorSeal.
ColorSeal is our proprietary sealer that recolors grout. It also protects grout by acting as a shield that prevents dirt and spills from penetrating its pores. ColorSeal will re-color your grout while making it stain-, water-, mold-, and mildew-resistant. The best part is that, with proper maintenance, it can last as long as the grout itself.
Once our experts finished the job, they proceeded to show the homeowners their restored floor. They were amazed and couldn't believe how fantastic the porcelain floor looked. Since they were so satisfied, they promised to recommend us to everyone they knew.
However, the job was not over yet. There was still one final step our team had to cover. They gave the homeowners recommendations to keep their floor and grout looking like new. It's important to clean tile and grout with a pH-neutral cleaner and change mop water frequently. When mop water isn't changed frequently, you push dirt and debris into the grout, giving it that dark and unaesthetic color.
The homeowner thanked the team again for the excellent service they performed and their professionalism. To our surprise, they called back two weeks later. After the service we performed, they managed to sell the house at an excellent price, so they called to thank us once more.
