Did you know that the average American homeowner stays in his or her home for just over 13 years before they decide to sell? Thirteen years is a long time for things to go wrong in a home, especially if you haven’t kept up with maintenance. If you’re an owner who is getting ready to put a house on the market, make sure to take a close look at its tiled surfaces. Are they up to snuff? If not, you might want to think about engaging professional tile and grout cleaning services like those offered by The Grout Medic. Let’s take a look at three important services we offer that will help improve your chances of a quick home sale.
Water Damage Repair
Without a doubt, one of the worst issues a home can have, and that prospective buyers often notice right away, is water damage. Water damage is not only unsightly, it’s potentially hazardous because trapped moisture behind walls and tub surrounds are a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause anyone who’s living in the home respiratory problems. If left untreated, water damage can also cause costly structural damage to a home that only gets worse the longer the damage goes unchecked. That’s why, tile and grout cleaning services like those The Grout Medic offers, should be considered the moment you suspect water damage anywhere in your home. Our professionals can inspect, remove, and replace affected areas and give your showers, sinks, and kitchen areas a beautiful new look that not only protects against long-term water damage, but appeals to buyers who might be interested in your home.
Tile and Grout Cleaning
Most homeowners wipe their tiled surfaces down on a regular basis and might do a deeper cleaning from time to time. But scrubbing your tiles and grout can’t get them as clean as they would be if professional tile and grout cleaning services were employed. That’s because, over time, tiles can lose their luster, and grout is porous, meaning it absorbs dirt and stains easily. In order to bring those surfaces back to life, professionals like The Grout Medic use technology that’s not available to the average homeowner. Our stronger cleaning solutions, and eco-friendly vapor steam technology, clean your tile and grout thoroughly, killing germs and bacteria while remaining gentle on your tile’s finish. The result is newer-looking tiled areas throughout your home that will be a strong selling point once your house hits the market — an advantage that can’t be had without the expertise of The Grout Medic technicians.
When professional cleaning is not enough to revive the look of your tile and grout because you’re dealing with chips, cracks, or missing pieces, then it’s time for replacement. Damaged tile is a definite eyesore that will turn any prospective buyer off, but the experts at The Grout Medic can safely remove one broken tile or one hundred of them, performing the necessary grout repairs along the way. Our technicians will make sure your once-damaged tiled surfaces present their best face and appeal to the broadest number of house hunters.
Selling a home can be a stressful affair. Don’t let yours languish on the market. The Grout Medic can make all its tiled surfaces look their very best and help you see that “sold” sign more quickly.
