Pet Accidents – What To Do When They Happen?

Part One
We all love our pets! They are part of the family. They bring comfort and joy into our lives. Yet, there are times when that love or joy can go right out the window when we discover, much to our dismay, that ominous deposit they left us, right in the middle of our living room carpet. Whether it is urine, vomit, or feces, no pet owner ever enjoys this aspect of having a pet(s). So what can you do about it when it happens?

     As you well know, your flooring is a big investment. It’s the foundational decorative design of the interior of your home. But whatever kind of flooring you have, whether that is carpeting, ceramic tile or natural stone, it all has to be maintained and cleaned regularly to keep up its appearance. You may do your best to keep up with the maintenance of your flooring, but despite all your efforts, you’ve noticed it just doesn’t look the way it used to.

     Over time, hard surface flooring like ceramic tile and natural stone can become embedded with dirt, grease and grime that your household cleaners and mops just can no longer remove, especially those hard to clean grout lines.

      This is where our services can help. With our restorative cleaning process, we can bring back the appearance of your flooring to the way it used to be, just like in this photo!

  • Our process starts by vacuuming the floor to remove any loose debris.
  • We then mask off any areas around the flooring that may need to be protected during the cleaning.
  • After that, we apply an environmentally friendly cleaner with oxidizing and degreasing capabilities that work deep down into the nooks and crannies to dislodge the dirty soil from the floor.
  • We then pay special attention to the grout lines by scrubbing the grout with a specialized brush made specifically for that purpose.
  • Once this has been done, we use a floor machine to thoroughly scrub the rest of the ceramic tile/ or stone.
  • In the next step, we use a pressure washing spinning tool that hooks up to our truck-mounted machine which uses soft hot water to thoroughly rinse and vacuum the emulsified soils off the floor to make it pristine clean.
  • Air movers are then used to quickly dry the floor.
  • Once the floor has dried, a clear penetrating sealer is applied to the grout lines of the ceramic tile. For the ultimate in ceramic tile restoration, a color seal can be applied to the grout after cleaning. The color seal is a pigmented acrylic grout sealer designed to recolor, seal, and restore existing grout joints. It provides a consistent uniform color to the grout, along with a highly sealed and durable finish that comes in a variety of colors. Dirt and food spills cannot penetrate the sealer, they just wipe right off!

  •  In the case of natural stone, after the cleaning has been done, we can polish the stone to bring back its luster. A penetrating sealer is then applied to the whole floor to help protect it against future soiling.

  • After the cleaning and sealing are done and the job is finished, we give you tips and suggestions on how to best maintain your floors to retain their appearance.
