Groupon Tile Cleaning:
Last Saturday I had the privilege of meeting a very nice young lady who wanted an estimate for her travertine floors. These floors which included the kitchen and the laundry room were about 114 square feet. When I first looked at the floor she mentioned to me that she had hired a carpet cleaning company from groupon to clean the tile floor and was quite disappointed with the results. The grout lines were definitely NOT clean. She explained to me that she purchased a Groupon for $59.00 from a carpet cleaner to clean up to 150 square feet of tile & grout. This same carpet cleaner has run (3) groupon ads in 2012: February, August, & October. I have done a considerable amount of research on this particular cleaner and for the most part his reviews are mostly negative.
I explained to the home owner that she should call back the carpet cleaner to re-clean the floor and scrub the grout lines until they are clean. She was hesitant to call them back because they had recommended to her that she should 'WAX' her travertine floors. I asked her how was waxing the floor going to remove the dirt from the grout lines? She had the same thought and did not want to call them back out for fear they may ruin her travertine tile floor. By the way, you should NEVER put wax on a travertine floor, but that subject is for another blog. I also suggested to her that she contact Groupon and ask for a refund which she said she was.
It is worth stating - "Good things aren't cheap and cheap things aren't good." I hope this article has been helpful to you, give me a call if you have questions.
