Grimy Grout!

September 16, 2014

Grimy GroutGrimy Grout! Ugh! My husband and I were so proud of ourselves when we replaced the white carpet with brown tile before moving into our home three years ago. We were finally on the cusp of overcoming the never ending process of trying to keep the carpet clean. This was of course before I came to work for the best carpet cleaning company in all of Fresno and Clovis California!


With 3 kids, 2 pets, and an inability to remember to take off our shoes before entering the house, we just knew white carpet was not the way to go. However, I wish we had known just a bit more about tile before we made our final decision. We very confidently chose “dirt” colored tile with a smooth finish … and off-white grout! As it turns out, the color is truly great. The smooth texture, not so much. It tends to show everything. The grout color … AWFUL!


I now believe that all grout should be black. We should all just grit our teeth and make black grout the new fad. We all know our grout is going to turn black anyway, right?! But no, here I am with black grout that should be off-white and it drives me crazy.


Once again, working for a floor cleaner has some great perks. Aaron sent one of his fabulous technicians out to my home to tackle my tile. Let me tell you, I didn’t even remember my tile looking like this when it was brand new! I had told them to not worry about the edges in the kitchen pantry, so that ended up giving me the perfect place to see the before and after difference. And what a difference it was! I was embarrassed to feel how much sticky build-up there was on a floor I had cleaned so often.


The real kicker, however, was the difference in the grout. Somehow between their products, equipment, know-how, and elbow grease, Aaron’s Quality Cleaners restored my grout lines to a consistent, off-white color again. It is breathtakingly beautiful!


My poor family is now once again tied to a neurotic mom with an eagle eye for dirt and spills. I think they preferred it when the floor was so dirty that I just didn’t’ care anymore! The good news is that when we do eventually return our grout to a dingy, grimy black color, I know who to call to make it, and me, happy again! If your tile and grout is living a bit on the dark side, give Aaron’s Quality Cleaners a call and see what a difference they can make for you too!
