Travertine surfaces are beautiful and can be an excellent addition to any area of the home. However, the stone is prone to deterioration and can lose its appeal without proper care. In some cases, it may be necessary to seek professional assistance to address long-term damage caused by daily wear and tear or harsh cleaning products. A client from Sewickley, PA, recently contacted us because she experiencing a similar issue.

Floor Before and After a Superb Stone Cleaning in Sewickley, PA
She loved her travertine floor, but it became dull and unappealing over the years. Even with regular cleaning, she couldn't achieve the results she was hoping for. After trying other DIY methods unsuccessfully, she decided it was best to seek professional assistance. She went online and searched for stone cleaning services in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, and found a link to our website at the top of Google's results.

She visited our user-friendly website, read through some of our informative blog posts, and checked out our picture gallery. After seeing our hard surface restoration expertise, she was confident to fill out our online schedulerto request a free evaluation at her convenience.

Our company vehicles and equipment are meticulously maintained and identified, ensuring our customers can easily recognize us when we arrive. We believe that a well-presented team and marked vehicles instill confidence and contribute to a seamless, trustworthy customer experience. As scheduled, we visited her home and quickly assessed the issues on the travertine floor.

The surface was in poor condition, with grimy tiles and darkened grout. We explained to the owner that this could be a result of day-to-day wear or improper maintenance using harsh chemicals. Moreover, we noticed that the surface was not properly sealed, which is a problem that can lead to further damage and deterioration over time.

After sharing our observations with the owner, we suggested the best solution to fix the problems and restore the floor. We recommend our stone cleaning and sealing service, using professional-grade equipment and Sir Grout's proprietary products, which are the safest, and most advanced on the market. We assured her we would repair the damage, shield the stone and the grout, and ensure the floor would look beautiful again.

We presented a no-obligation quote along with a detailed outline of the work we would perform. She was satisfied with the solution we proposed and the reasonable quote and promptly asked to schedule the job for a future date and time that suited her.

At Sir Grout, we pride ourselves on fulfilling our promises and providing a safe environment for all. From the moment we provide a free quote until the finished product, we treat our client's home as ours. We returned on the appointed date and time, as scheduled, ensured the area was protected during our work, and proceeded with our multi-step process, letting the homeowner know we were available to answer any questions she might have regarding the job.

We began the restoration by deep-cleaning the floor with a high-speed scrubber and our exclusive cleaner. This superior product, crafted with top-quality ingredients, is safe for the stone and ensures thorough cleaning without leaving any residue or harming the surface.

For the following step, we restored and sealed the grout with our flagship sealant, ColorSeal. Our high-quality product protects against dirt, water, stains, and other damage. It also reduces wear and tear, so maintenance becomes an effortless task for our clients.

ColorSeal is a top-of-the-line sealant that gives grout a uniform color and a completely revitalized appearance, greatly improving the surface. In addition, it offers a large variety of colors, which almost always ensures our clients can find a color to match their tiles or choose to change it to give their surfaces a makeover.

To finish the job, we sealed the stone with an impregnating sealant that protects the travertine against spills, water, etch marks, and stains. Our sealer also enhances the beauty of the surface, and with proper care, it can last for a long time.

As we cleaned up, we invited our client to inspect the results. The owner loved the renewed appearance of the surface and she was very happy because the process had been efficient, cost-effective, and fast.

She thanked us for our exceptional work and promised to recommend our services to family and friends experiencing similar hard surface-related issues. She also mentioned she would leave a five-star review on Google to ensure others knew about our outstanding products and services.

Before leaving, we took some time to give our client a few recommendations and helpful tips for maintaining her restored surface. We suggested a weekly cleaning routine using pH-neutral and soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike store-bought cleaners, our product delivers remarkable results, and because it's non-toxic, it won't harm anyone in her household, including pets.

We don't recommend using soap-based products or substances with acidic properties because they contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to the stone and leave a residue that can dry on the surface, leading to discoloration, staining, and other damage. It is also important to keep the surface dry using paper towels or terry cloths and to avoid using abrasive tools because they can leave scratches.
