When putting your home on the market, you want to present it at its best. Getting more buyer interest will command the best price for your home—and that’s when the extra effort you give—whether with expensive renovations or smaller, less expensive touches like painting pay off in big dollars.
Everyone who tours a home they are considering to buy wants to see themselves living in that home. And the first thing people notice in bathrooms is how clean—or dirty—the grout and tile in the shower and on the floor is. The kitchen and bathroom countertops are important too.
High-quality and well-presented bathrooms and kitchens are proven draws in home sales. Potential buyers want the know that they won’t have to face more inconvenience than necessary before or after they move in.
Look to the professionals at Groutsmith of Tulsa to prep your home’s grout, tile and stone surfaces with a proper cleaning and sealing job. All your floors, walls, backsplashes, and other tiled surfaces can be successfully transformed BEFORE you put the for sale sign on your front lawn.
Here’s what professional grout and tile cleaning and sealing will get you:
Clean, Disinfected Surfaces
Dirty, grimy tile and grout can make a room look drab and rundown. The same goes with mold, which can also pose a health hazard (coughing, wheezing, watering eyes and other allergic reactions) that sends many potential buyers running for the hills.
Yes, you can clean tile and grout yourself. But not only will this take a lot of your valuable time, it might not have the desired results. Using the wrong, harsh cleaner can actually etch or cause other damage to your tile and grout, or leave it dirtier than when you started.
A good professional tile and grout company has the correct cleaning supplies, equipment and training to handle any tile surface material and size. Their expertise is particularly useful for stubborn, hard-to-remove stains.
A thorough cleaning of a bath or shower room grout can work marvels in many cases. However, if the grout is too discolored or worn, then it may need to be re-grouted. Not only will this measure give you a fresh, new look – removing all dangerous mold as well – it will provide a substantial cost saving over replacing the tiles entirely.
The grout can also be sealed to keep it looking good longer. A clear grout sealer is ideal for when you just had your new grout installed and want extra protection. If you have difficult-to-remove stains and mildew, a color grout sealer can give you the colors you need to complement your tile color scheme.
Repaired Loose and Hollow Tiles
Savvy homebuyers and home inspectors will look for loose and hollow tiles as strikes against a possible purchase. Tiles that are loose and moving are susceptible to cracking and damage. And hollowness also weakens tile, so they chip and break, leading to costly repairs down the road.
Your grouting and tile company of choice will make sure that all your tiles are secure and solid underneath.
