If your cabinets look bad, everything else in your kitchen automatically looks bad too. What is a homeowner to do: replace, reface, repaint or refinish? Suddenly even more questions begin to surface: How long will it take? How much will it cost? How inconvenient will it be?
Consumers may be unaware of one good solution. According to Tracy Booth, owner of Gleam Guard, your kitchen cabinets can undergo a marvelous, long-lasting makeover in as little as one day.
Gleam Guard is a fast and economical way to permanently restore and protect your wood cabinets and interior woodwork. The Gleam Guard process is a breakthrough technology that is dustless with no mess or toxic fumes. There is very little odor and you don’t even have to empty your shelves. In the average kitchen, you can leave for work and enjoy great-looking cabinets by the time you get home.
The Gleam Guard professionals remove all peels and flakes from water and heat, pet scratches, and minor nicks and imperfections before applying the hard surface. All products are eco-friendly.
Maintenance is a breeze – simply use a damp cloth. For a stubborn spot, a small amount of white vinegar will do the trick.
Tracy’s clients consistently tell him they wish they’d called years earlier. “It’s fast. It’s easy for customers. It’s relatively inexpensive,” he said. “And it’s long-lasting. I have customers who had their cabinets done in 1988, when I started the business, and the cabinets still retain their shine.”
Making buyers happy has earned Gleam Guard a perfect rating with the Better Business Bureau, as well as the prestigious Award for Outstanding Customer Service.
“I respect my customer’s time and property,” said Tracy. Years in the cleaning business taught him how to do a job quickly and efficiently without leaving a mess.
The Gleam Guard crew works on one job at a time, so there are no interruptions or breakaways. Most kitchens are completed in one day, while some larger kitchens require part of a second day.
Many of Tracy’s customers are skilled craftsmen who could do the work themselves over a few weeks. “The cost is so reasonable, they can get the work done in no time and enjoy weekends with their families,” he said.
People call Gleam Guard for many reasons. Even those with newer cabinets – especially glazed cabinets – use the product to extend their cabinet’s beauty and protect their investments. Rental property owners appreciate the protection and the visual value at an affordable cost.
The process works not only on traditional wood surfaces, but also on painted, glazed and pickled woods.
Gleam Guard is not limited to kitchen cabinets – more and more customers are calling about whole house projects that include paneling, molding, doors and frames.
Gleam Guard comes with a five-year warranty and free touchups if needed. Tracy, along with his team of professionals, can also clean and brighten brick and rock fireplaces and accents inside your home.
Patrons can see before and after samples and available sheens, from satin to high-gloss, at Woodland Hills Mall. Enter from the Pinecone Lot, on the north side near Macy’s. The Gleam Guard storefront is immediately to your right, in the food court across from Chick-fil-A. For more information, call Tracy Booth at (918) 951-3401. He is happy to answer questions over the phone or give you an in-home demonstration with one of your doors.
