A homeowner in Palmetto was ready to give her kitchen a much-needed makeover. For months, she'd noticed the stains spreading from her countertop to the backlash and worked hard to improve the grout's color. Her efforts didn't work as expected, but the homeowner didn't let that bring her down. Instead, she started looking for grout cleaning services in Palmetto, knowing that a hard surface professional would have the means to help her.

She didn't have to look for long since the ideal solution was at the top of her Google search results. Sir Grout Sarasota impressed her from the start, but the homeowner still took her time reading through the pages and checking our picture gallery to make an informed decision. Then, she gave us a call to hash out the details for an in-home evaluation, and our agent was happy to assist her.

Our techs visited her house on the scheduled date to look at her kitchen counter. Once inside the house, they looked at the entire flat surface and the backsplash connected to it, immediately noticing several dark yellow spots on the grout. As the homeowner told them, stains were nothing new since that was usually the spot for the groceries and some of the daily meals. The problem was that the stains didn't take long to become part of the layout, even when the homeowner didn't let the dirt sit for long before using her cleaners.

This is how our specialists confirmed that some chemical-based cleaners had been used on the grout, along with a homemade mix of vinegar and water. Unfortunately, soap-based cleaners create a foamy film that pushes the dirt into the grout pores, while vinegar has acidic imbalances that corrode cement-based grout over time.

The best course of action was a professional restoration, where our techs deep-cleaned the counter and sealed all the grout lines. They outlined the process for the homeowner, and she was entirely on board, so a date was set for the counter revamp that week.

As scheduled, our experts returned to the house a few days later and immediately got to work. They soaked the countertop with a permeating cleaner and scrubbed the surface by hand after letting the product sit for a few minutes. Then, they repeated the same process on the backsplash before starting their work on the grout.

Since parts of the grout had gone loose, our crew started by installing mold-resistant epoxy grout on the seams and the lower part of the backsplash. Then, they used Sir Grout's flagship ColorSeal to fix the discoloration on the grout lines. This acrylic-based sealant is available in multiple colors to match the homeowner's preference. More importantly, it provides the most powerful protection to prevent stains and wear and tear. It repels water, food residue, grime, and other external elements, so homeowners don't need to go out of their way to keep their grout spotless.

Our specialists carefully removed the sealant's residue and called the client back into the kitchen so she could see the result. The counter looked terrific, and the white grout gave it the perfect touch to enhance its classic beauty. The homeowner loved its new look and even promised to spread the word about our grout cleaning services.

The restoration was complete, but our experts still had a few additional tips to share. To avoid the damage caused by soap-based products, they recommended trying pH-neutral formulas like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. This high-quality formula removes the stains caused by grease, foot, and other elements in record time. It permeates the surface without weakening the sealant's protection and simplifies the process when dealing with embedded dirt between the tiles. You can clean your kitchen and other living spaces without worrying about harmful side effects because our cleaner doesn't release toxic fumes into the air.

Regarding the right tools to remove dirt without leaving traces behind, we recommend using a towel or a terry cloth, especially if you want to preserve your tiles against scratches. Our techs told the client that opening the windows and doors would significantly improve the room's ventilation. It's essential to keep your kitchen and bathroom areas from becoming stuffy to avoid the worst effects of moisture buildup.
