This Singapore Homeowner Avoids Expensive Retiling Thanks to a Professional Grout Cleaning Service
February 06, 2017
This homeowner, who was living at a resale HDB flat, was renovating her recently acquired home. She had renovated the kitchen and two bathrooms, overlaying laminate flooring in two of the three bedrooms. However, she liked the existing tile, and since it was still in good shape, she wanted to do something to refresh it. She contemplated the possibility of replacing it, but it was an area of 500 sq. ft. Therefore, the cost of removing the existing tile and retiling the floor would be quite expensive.
Once she determined that her floors needed a grout and tile cleaning service, she decided to search online for a Singapore grout cleaning
company, and she found our website. She clicked on the link, which led to a blog where we described a previous grout cleaning job we had done. She thought that the floor looked similar to hers and that it looked fantastic after our service, so she decided to give us a call, and we set up an appointment to do a free evaluation.
When our specialists arrived at her place, she explained to us that she thought the floors were looking rather dull and a bit dirty. These were the tiles that the apartment originally had, and even though she had done some major remodeling, she considered she could save some money by having them cleaned, which is why she contacted us. The team explained to her that what she needed was a tile and grout cleaning and sealing service, and we gave her an estimate. She was happy with the assessment and the estimate, so the team set up another appointment to carry out the job.
Our grout and tile cleaning experts arrived on the agreed date. They started the job by applying a pH-neutral, soap-less cleaner. After that, they used a high-speed, gentle scrubber to deep clean the tile and grout. This scrubber is strong enough to remove the most stubborn of stains but gentle enough to keep tiles and grout intact. After all the dirt was completely removed, we applied our tile and grout protector, Tile Armor, to help her floors maintain their impeccable looks for longer by protecting them against stains and spills. Tile Armor also allows tile floors to be cleaned more easily. This product is water-based, and it is also completely safe for families and pets.
After our specialists were done, we showed the homeowner the results. She was definitely pleased with the work they had done. She told us it looked brand new and that she was happy she had found us online. We were very glad to see that she really appreciated and was satisfied with the job we had done.
She asked the team if they had any recommendations to prevent dirt build up, and they explained that they usually recommend clients to vacuum their floors frequently so loose dirt can be removed. They also told her she should use a pH-neutral, soap-less floor cleaner, leave it for about five minutes, and then dry the floor with a towel or terry cloth. They also recommended to never let the cleaner air dry as this can leave dirt behind and it can sink into the grout. She was amazed by the fact that a pH-neutral cleaner should be used to clean tile floors. Out of all the products she showed us, none was fit to properly maintain her tile floors, since most store-bought products are either acidic or alkaline in nature.
