Getting Your House Ready For Sale

Posted by on Aug 6, 2014 in Bathroom Makeover, Blog, Grout Cleaning, Kitchen Makeover, Maintenance, Tile Cleaning | Comments Off on Getting Your House Ready For Sale

Getting Your House Ready For Sale   Maintenance and Spring Cleaning Can Really Help As Spring approaches, so does the busiest time of year for real estate agents. There are approximately 65% more properties available for sale in Spring than any other time of year. People tend to want to sell at this time of year because the weather is warmer, the gardens look more appealing and neater and the house tends to be more inviting. Before putting your home on the market, you need to take an objective look at it, and all the things that need fixing ­in order to get the biggest return and address potential house maintenance. Buyers tend to focus on a few key areas of a prospective new home ­- the kitchen and the bathrooms. Dirty tiles and grout can be a potential deal breaker in sale negotiations. The alternative ­- installing a new kitchen or bathroom can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. This may not be money that you want to spend if you aren’t going to be around to enjoy it. A cost­ effective alternative is to have your kitchen or bathroom given a new lease of life. The photo’s below show a unit in Sydney’s inner city that was going on the market. GroutPro was enlisted to update the bathroom. Upon inspection, there was grout missing in a few areas, and the grout was heavily discoloured, with mould growing in some areas. The tiles and grout in the bathroom was cleaned, missing grout was replaced and GroutPro’s unique Colourseal product was added to the shower walls and bathroom floors to give the bathroom a fresh, updated look. This low cost house maintenance solution contributed to high return for the owners on auction day.

Sick of Shower Scum? Put GroutPro to the Challenge

Posted by on Jun 13, 2014 in Bathroom Makeover, Blog, Grout Recolouring, Tile Cleaning | Comments Off on Sick of Shower Scum? Put GroutPro to the Challenge

Soap Scum and Mould! Shower’s Pose a Big Challenge to GroutPro Understandably the bathroom and shower suffers the most from moisture mould and water staining. Over time this buildup of soap scum and moisture mould leaches into the grout around tiles and shower screens and leaves them looking disgusting. Standard bleach and everyday cleaners just won’t do the job and home owners soon lose enthusiasm for scouring and bleaching every other day.Shower Cubicle beforeShower After GroutPro The teams of GroutPro Tile and Grout Specialists around Australia get to see hundreds of these badly stained showers and bathrooms every year! Unlike the homeowner we see the dirty grout and mould as a positive challenge! Our advantage is in our very own unique bio friendly tile and grout cleaning products and specifically made cleaning machinery. These allow us to cut through the soap scum and mildew to remove the staining completely and thereby deliver a sparkling result. One of our toughest recent jobs saw a badly stained shower with white tiles and mildew soap stains on the walls and base. The homeowner had also tried to seal some drill holes with plaster after a recent attempt to hang a rail/shelf. The mould had set into the plaster (which was not waterproof) and needed to be removed, filled and sealed against moisture. The old grout needed cleaning and recolouring. The base of the shower was to remain with a grey grout colour which matched the rest of the ensuite flooring, so it just needed a good clean. Just a short few hours later the whole ensuite looked like new again. I think you’ll agree the results speak for themselves. The white grout was outstanding, the mould and staining removed and the glass shower screen was clear as crystal, the homeowner was over the moon with the results. If you need this kind of result for your sad shower or bathroom, don’t be embarrassed by the soap scum or mould, call the GroutPro local team and put them to the challenge!

See Through The Glass

Posted by on May 9, 2014 in Bathroom Makeover, Blog, Glass Restoration, Specialist | Comments Off on See Through The Glass

Can You See Through Your Shower Screen Glass? GroutPro’s Glass Restoration May Be the Answer….. Ever visited an older home where the shower screen was so badly marked by years of soap scum, lime or mineral buildup that you weren’t able to see through the glass? Well that’s exactly what our team in Toowoomba experienced recently. Soap scum and years of mineral deposits from hard water builds up naturally within a shower cubicle and generally this is most obvious firstly on the glass shower screen and secondly on the tiles and floor of the shower itself. Bleach and other standard harsh cleaners can only do so much in removing it and without literally scouring the glass to remove the soap residue – which can damage the surface of the glass – this generally proves to be unsuccessful. GroutPro offers a brilliant glass restoration technique to clear that lime and soap scum and return the glass to it’s original lustre, clarity and shine. In many cases the results we achieve with our cleaning and restoration you would think the glass had been replaced. So our Toowoomba team set about restoring the shower screens and cleaning the grout and tiles in the bathroom using GroutPro’s own environmentally and family safe products. Using GroutPro’s own products, which remove calcium hard water stains, are non-corrosive and contain no acids or solvents, we were able to easily remove the stains and bacteria without harming the environment or family members. After we removed the stains we applied our GroutPro Professional Glass Protector which will provide an easy to clean layer over the glass as a protective coating. This prevents water from sitting on the surface of the glass and thereby leaving marks. After a few good hours of cleaning and a nice cup of tea from the home owner, the bathroom came up looking a million dollars! The owners were amazed with the outcome, they can see through the glass again and enjoy the sparkling clean bathroom as a result of our teams work. If you’d like more information about glass restoration talk to the boys at GroutPro Tile and Grout Cleaning – they can help you with information on their latest Coloursealing technique. This restores and protects the grout on your shower walls and makes it easier to clean. They’ll replace all the old mouldy silicone seals while they’re there and your shower will look like new again!  Well done Toowoomba team, great job..

Is it time for a Kitchen or Bathroom Makeover?

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013 in Bathroom Makeover, Blog, Grout Recolouring, Kitchen Makeover, Tile Cleaning | Comments Off on Is it time for a Kitchen or Bathroom Makeover?

Is It Time for a Kitchen or Bathroom Makeover? Then it’s Time to Call GroutPro! Have you ever walked into an older property and noticed the bathroom or kitchen tiles looking a little sad and neglected?  As we all know age can do terrible things to any surface and lots of older homes, shopping centres, public areas etc suffer this. It could be due to a build up of mould, dirt, grease, grime – all of these factors will increase the ageing process. Along with daily wear and tear over a number of years, your tiled areas can really suffer. So, how can you give these areas a ‘makeover’ without it costing a fortune in new tiling etc? Generally the cost of a total refurb can be out of reach for most people. This is when we discovered ‘GroutPro’.  Their tile cleaning services gives dirty, mouldy tiles and grout a complete ‘makeover’, bringing any size tiled area back to looking brand new….and within budget. Scanning through their extensive number of before and after images of kitchens, bathrooms, pool areas, hotel reception areas, shopping centres, changing rooms etc it’s fascinating to see the difference in the old to the new. It’s sort of like watching the latest episode of 10 Years Younger but with tiles! Many of the customer images we viewed show GroutPro services such as grout re-colouring where the before image shows an old damaged tiled area with patchy grout throughout to then the after shot showing perfect tiles with either a lighter or darker all matching grout surface – amazing transformation. But the GroutPro services don’t stop there, they also offer a glass restoration service. Take a standard shower cubicle for example, the buildup of soap and scum marks on the glass will age the entire bathroom. With GroutPro’s Glass Restoration service the glass goes through a 2 stage process, firstly using a non abrasive eco-friendly restorer to clean the dirt and mineral deposits “out of the pores” of the glass. Then, once clean, they apply GroutPro glass protector to seal the surface of the glass and repel the water and dirt.
