Grout Care of Tulsa owner Kent Kantor can make any grout look good. He has been keeping customers happy for 14 years by repairing, rather than replacing, tile and grout.
The very first sign of a grout problem is the best time to take care of it. A small crack. A hole. A bit of mold in the tub or shower area. These are all warnings to call Grout Care of Tulsa right away.
Owner Kent Kantor explains that although these signs may not seem like anything serious, they are all signs of subsurface water. In time, this water that you don’t see will damage not only the grout and tile, but the entire wall behind it. Then homeowners wish they had called him when they first noticed something was wrong.
Even homes as new as two years have had grout problems. Age makes no difference. But the length of time that a problem exists can make a big difference in damage and repair costs.
“We make grout care easy,” says Kent. Just one call, any time, will get him to a home for a free estimate. About 15 minutes is all it takes. And there is no expiration on the price estimate. Whenever the customer is ready, so are Kent and his crew. Nearly all jobs are completed in one day.
Some people think they can do it themselves; then they discover it is no easy task. Do-it-yourselfers have called Kent after spending a couple weekends fumbling through a project that didn’t turn out. Grout Care of Tulsa provides the tools, the products and the skill to cost effectively handle the problem, make the area watertight, and keep it looking good for a long time.
“We do one thing, and we do it right.” For 14 years the tile and grout specialists have provided service to clean and seal grout, regrout showers, and color stain grout in kitchen floors.
Color staining is a quick and inexpensive way to update a tile floor. In time, the grout between tiles becomes dingy from the use of inappropriate cleaners and bristle brushes and an accumulation of dirt in mop water. Grout Care of Tulsa can give the floor new life by recoloring in the original color or transforming from light to dark or dark to light. The process permanently seals the grout and makes it easy to clean with just a damp mop.
This is something to consider if selling a home is in the near future. Finishing touches on all grout are not only attractive to the eye, but they can actually attract a higher offer when a buyer sees there is no work to be done and no expense to cover in that area. “I want to do what’s best for my customers to save them money or help them to make a little money. I can cure whatever ails tile and grout for just a fraction of the cost of replacement.”
A new option that makes grout care even easier is the Pro Care Professional Grout Maintenance Program for Baths. Under this plan, two baths in any home receive inspections, grout cleaning and minor grout repairs if needed.
A close look around a bathtub rim, spigot, spigot cover, shower window, soap dish, shower door or shower base could uncover a major problem in the making. That’s when a call to Grout Care of Tulsa can save big money. Call (918) 748-3030.
