Grout cleaning Tampa: Removing sealer haze

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Sealer haze: Natural stone and grout surfaces can only hold a certain amount of sealer.

If excess sealer is left on the surface and it dries it could cause a smooth, silky white haze.

Sealer haze on the surface of tile and stone surfaces will wear off during normal foot traffic. Sealer haze on grout lines can be cleaned using a towel soaked with fresh sealer. This will dissolve the excess and can be wiped away.

In extreme conditions using a high ph tile and grout cleaner and a rotary scrubber can speed up the process of removal.

This morning one of my clients in the Citrus Park area of Tampa, Florida needed water extracted from their carpets. The toilet overflowed  and caused their carpets to become soaked with water.

This may not seemed to be a big deal to the home owner but several problems could have ac cured if they did not act quickly especially since it happened on the second floor.

Besides of having standing water, homeowners should be aware of ceiling damage since the sub floor could leak to the first floor, mold and odor issues, and electrical.

When You Encounter Water Damage:

Turn off the water source – If you cannot determine the source of the water leak, then turn off the water at the water meter.

Be aware of electrical currents throughout the building. If flooding exists, do not use any electrical appliances.

Take steps to remove as much excess water from your floors until National Floor Care Specialist arrives.

Pay attention to possible sagging ceilings which could soften down and possible collapse on top of you.

Save any valuables by moving them out of the water. If the furniture is too heavy try placing aluminum foil below the legs for easier maneuverability.

Lift the bottom of floor length drapes off the floor to avoid further damage from the water.
