Gleam Guard owner Tracy Booth shows how a Jenks family left their kitchen cabinets before he applied Gleam Guard.
“Is it really true I don’t have to take anything out of my cupboards?” That’s one of the most common questions Gleam Guard owner Tracy Booth hears. His answer is, “Yes – you don’t have to do anything to prepare. Everything in your cupboards can remain as they are.”
In an average size kitchen, the owner can leave for work in the morning and come home to new-looking cabinets. A large kitchen may take part of a second day. Trained craftsmen start by thoroughly cleaning and detailing surfaces to remove grease, oil and smudges. Then, nicks, scratches, peels and flakes – even pet scratches – are touched up before the final finish is applied. There is no sanding, no mess and no toxic fumes. There are also no breakaways or interruptions. Each job is quickly set up, done in a professional manner and left with only gleaming results behind.
All Gleam Guard products are eco-friendly. Maintenance is as simple as wiping with a damp cloth. Stubborn spills can be handled with a few drops of white vinegar. Old-fashion polishes and oils can be thrown away.
In a tight economy, smart people are looking at creative ways to get the most for their money. To them, Gleam Guard provides the lasting results they want at a cost-effective price. Tracy recalls cabinets that he did in 1987, when he first started his business. After 23 years, owners tell him their cabinets still have a smooth, beautiful finish. It’s not unusual for him to hear comments such as, “I had been thinking about getting Gleam Guard for a long time. Then I finally did it. If I had known it was this easy and my cabinets could look this good, I would have done it a long time ago.”
It makes sense too when owners prepare to sell their homes. Tired kitchen cabinets turn prospective buyers away. Gleam Guard not only gives cabinets an updated look, its five-year guarantee for touch-up services is also transferable to the new owner.
Through the years, many customers have referred friends, family and coworkers to Gleam Guard. Their honesty and workmanship earned them the Better Business Bureau’s prestigious Award for Outstanding Customer Service.
Besides kitchen and bath cabinets, Tracy does whole house makeovers that include doorframes, woodwork, baseboards and all wood trims that are painted, pickled or stained. One homeowner who had a total makeover saved $30,000 over replacement.
Tracy would be happy to do an in-home demonstration to show what cabinets will look like in a satin, semi-gloss or high-gloss finish. Samples are also available at the Woodland Hills Mall display. From the lower level Sears entrance on the north side, take the escalator to the upper level. The Gleam Guard display is in the middle of the mall, between Fossil and Hollister.
