Preparing Your Home For Sale

Selling your house isn’t as easy as putting up a ‘for sale’ board and just sitting back waiting for prospective buyers to call. Instead, it requires preparing your home so that not only does it look its best when viewing but you’re also more likely to get the price you were hoping for.

Before inviting prospective buyers to come and take a look, it’s important for a homeowner to carry out any home improvements that are necessary. While you may be able to do most of the cleaning and repair jobs yourself, it’s often a good idea to use a professional tile and grout cleaning service to tackle some of the more specialised jobs.

South Qld Restorations has the experience and know-how to tackle even the trickiest tile and grout cleaning and uses specialist equipment to restore your tiles to an almost new condition.

Cleaning tile grout

Cleaning the spaces in between your tiles isn’t easy. They accumulate dust and dirt while moisture also helps create the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. This means that your grout can soon become discoloured and grimy and may even crack or break apart, leaving your floor exposed to water which could seep underneath. You could spend hours or even days on your hands and knees scrubbing and cleaning your grout to get your home ready to put on the market. Or you could leave it to professionally trained technicians.

Bring on the shine

Grout is porous in nature which means it easily absorbs dirt, grease, and limescale. This coupled with moisture can cause mildew and mould to form, and while this is bad for your health, it can also do permanent damage to your tiles. Cleaning products that you can buy at your local store won’t be anywhere near as powerful or effective as the specialist products we use. Expertly formulated liquid cleaners will be applied to your tiles by means of our truck-mounted cleaning equipment, and this will loosen and extract the dirt from your grout leaving your tiles lustrous and shiny, just as when they were first installed. We know you’ll be delighted with the results.

Restoring broken tiles

Broken or cracked tiles and grout can be a deal breaker for prospective buyers as they view it as yet another expense to be factored into their budget. To replace damaged or broken tiles you may need to pay an hourly rate for a contractor on top of the cost of the materials so why not consider tile repair instead? Restoring existing tiles creates a structurally sound and secure floor, preventing further repairs in the near future.
