It’s Great to be 10 Years Strong!

By Christina Fitzwilliam

I cannot believe our summer has almost come to an end. All the scheduling that seemed overwhelming at the beginning of summer has come and gone, and I am both relieved as well as a bit remorseful. As I glance through my own home, it’s obvious it is going to need some TLC before I gear up for fall barbeques and weekend get-togethers. Enter the “honey-do list.” Luckily there is one chore my husband, John, doesn’t mind tackling in our home. But it wasn’t always so.

Ten years ago, before we began the deep cleaning business, John was a restaurant manager. One of his most frustrating challenges was getting the commercial kitchen and dining areas clean. I think he tried most every cleaning technique, product, and tool in the market, but those restaurant floors never succumbed to his efforts. I had the same issue cleaning my own tile and grout kitchen floor, and there was little he could do to help me.

So, in 2008, when John and I flew to Arizona to check out some innovative cleaning equipment, my husband was skeptical. His skepticism gave way to sheer excitement as he saw what these magical tools could do. He still gets giddy from time to time when he encounters a floor that looks beyond help that he can transform into something beautiful.

That first week we practiced in our own home, and I was astonished at how different my tile and grout floors looked. My carpet lightened several shades, and my driveway literally glowed in the dark. Many of our friends got free cleanings those first few weeks as well, and they were equally thrilled.

Here’s what I’ve learned during the last 10 years. Every now and then, even the most well-cared for and well-maintained house needs an occasional deep cleaning – cleaning places that are not in a regular cleaning schedule or places that are hard to clean. Dirt contaminants build up over time and cause beautiful tile and grout to discolor. Dirt becomes trapped within the pores of your floor and cannot be removed without some powerful measures.

Surface Doc has some really cool equipment that simply does what we can’t possibly do on our own. With a combination of high heat, high pressure, and a powerful spinning brush, all contained under a pressure hood, your floors will have no choice but to release the soil and contaminants buried deep within them. This process allows for the complete removal of years of build-up within your floor.

If it’s time for your floors to look new again, give Surface Doc and John a call.
