Getting Your House Ready For Sale

Posted on Aug 6, 2014 in Bathroom Makeover, Blog, Grout Cleaning, Kitchen Makeover, Maintenance, Tile Cleaning

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.

GroutPro’s Maintenance Products

Posted on Jul 29, 2014 in Blog, Stone and Quarry, Tile Cleaning, Tile Repair

Maintenance Products With the growth of the home renovation industry, as well as the popularity of ceramic tiles and natural stone as a floor choice, it is important that homeowners protect their investment. Some readily available supermarket products are highly acidic and corrosive with the ability to eat into your tiles and grout, which can lead to irreparable damage. Below is a photo of one of our recent customer’s bathroom – she had been using an acidic product with a pH of 0.5 that she had purchased from her local supermarket. The product is highly dangerous to use and the acidity of the product has caused the damage to her tiles. close up of dirty tiles and grout in showerdirty tiles and grout in shower base There are a lot of tile and floor cleaning products flooding the market these days but what exactly are you looking for to maintain your floors. One of the key things that you need to look for in a tile/floor cleaner product is pH neutral. What is pH neutral? pH neutral refers to something that it neither acidic nor alkaline.
