Fort Lee Resident Avoids Costly Repairs to her Bathroom with Our Hard Surface Restoration Services
June 30, 2019
An elegant bathroom is a dream for many homeowners. It gives the room a sophisticated appearance and an aura that's both inviting and comfortable. When a homeowner in Fort Lee, NJ first had the tiles in her bathroom floor installed in the 80s, that's exactly what she aimed for. Unfortunately, the floor's appealing and sophisticated look faded through years of regular usage, and the grout was now discolored and stained. This unfortunate turn of events worried the customer because she thought she would need to have the surface renovated. Not only would a renovation be expensive, it would also take a long time to complete.
One of the homeowner's friends noticed her concerns and recommended searching online for professional help. If an expert team were to assess the bathroom, maybe they would offer an alternative to a complete tear out of the bathroom floor. This prompted the homeowner to search for professional hard surface restoration services in Fort Lee, NJ
. She found our website in the top results, and after watching some video testimonials and browsing the Before and After
gallery, she called to request a free in-home consultation.
Bathroom floors are very susceptible to damage and can be difficult to keep clean with regular maintenance. This is because they're exposed to water, dirt, soap, and chemicals found in products that often come into contact with the bathroom's surfaces.
Upon arriving at the customer's home, our team of trained professionals inspected the problem. After assessing the surface, our experts concluded the most efficient and long-lasting solution would be deep cleaning the bathroom floor and applying ColorSeal to the grout lines. They would also re-caulk the joints because most of the caulk on the joints had worn out. The client was pleased to find out that even though the grout lines in the bathroom were heavily discolored, it wouldn't be necessary to renovate the floor. The homeowner thanked them for the inspection and set up an appointment to get the job done.
A couple of days later, our team went back to the client's house ready to restore the bathroom floor. They began by cleaning the surface using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. This cleaner is safe for both tile and grout. It also contains properties that can help provide protection against bacteria and other microorganisms. To remove the most stubborn dirt, our crew used a steam cleaner. When they finished cleaning, our experts scraped out the worn out caulk from the joints in preparation for the sealing procedure. To seal the floor, they used ColorSeal, our proprietary sealant. This acrylic-based sealant makes grout resistant to water, stains, mold, and mildew. It also re-colors grout to better match the color of the tiles. In this case, the customer chose white. To finish, our specialists re-caulked the joints that connected the floor to the other surfaces in the bathroom.
Our techs invited the customer to see the finished product. She was overwhelmed with the results. The bathroom floor now had the beautiful, elegant appearance she always wanted. She kindly thanked our professionals for their services and assured them she would definitely call back for maintenance.
