Floor Cleaning and More: Amazing Before-and-Afters

Posted by Hammond Knoll on Oct 8, 2020 4:00:00 AM

There are a lot of reasons professional floor cleaning is a necessity.

Your health, the safety and wellness of those in your office or home and maintaining a pleasant environment are all at stake.

But the floors aren’t the only areas of your business or home that need attention. 

There’s a wide variety of cleaning, repairing, maintenance and restoration tasks that Hammond Knoll can tackle for you.

And, as important as it is to keep your home or business well-maintained, the professional cleaning company you choose to work with matters, too.

Here are some amazing transformations that Hammond Knoll has done for our customers.

Shower Transformation

Not to brag (well, maybe a little), but we think our tile techs are the best in the industry.

Recently, we cleaned this poor soap-scummed, mildewed, so-sad shower.

A majority of the showers we restore have mineral deposits, soap scum and mildew, all three of which can add up to a very difficult shower to clean – without professional help.

And that’s what led the owners to call HK.

We did a hot-water extraction removal of the soap scum and mildewed caulking. We applied a grout colorant to the shower floor where the grout was permanently stained and applied new mildew-resistant caulking.

We turned this shower’s frown upside down.

Cabin Rescue

We don't just clean carpet, tile and area rugs. We’re what some might call the "Knoll-of-All-Trades."

This cabin (pictured below), located on the Nisqually Delta, had flooded. The logs of the cabin were penetrated with the delta silt that embedded into the cracks and crevices of the wood. 

Not good.

But, there’s always a way!

Being very cautious to not over-wet the wood and cause further damage, we used our specialized rotary-extraction cleaning equipment to rinse and flush the silt out of the logs while leaving them clean and dry.

Then, we vacuumed the dust and silt off of the wood and the floor and applied a top coat sealer to restore it back to its beautiful original condition.  

It's good to know "problem-solving" Knoll.

Rug Rehab

Sometimes we show off and it pays big.

And sometimes we show off and it bites us in the @#$!

In this case, it was a bit of both.

This rug was our customer’s pride and joy. It’s a very expensive, hand-made silk rug – even the fringe is silk. In fact, she rarely displayed the rug for fear of it being damaged.

The one time she brought it out for her dinner party guests to see, someone reached across the table and knocked over a RED burning candle. (It’s never a white candle. 🤦)

This is where showing off bites us in the rump if you hadn’t guessed already. ☹

Devastated, our customer brought the rug into Hammond Knoll.

(Bet you know that this is where it’s really cool to show off? 😊)

We removed the wax and cleaned the rug, paying special attention to the delicate fringe. The rug is back to its original beautiful self.

Our customer – and Hammond Knoll – have bragging rights once again! YAY! 🎉

Tough Chair Choice?

Toss it? 😩

Recover it? Ouch! That could get expensive with eight dining room chairs. 😔

Restore it?  Hey, maybe that’s the ticket. 🤔

Yep, that is definitely the right choice! 😊

This well-used chair that matches the rest of the dining room set was dried out, cracked and faded. More so than the other chairs, causing a dilemma about which choice to make?

The BEST decision?  Call Knoll.

We filled in the cracks, conditioned the leather and recolored it to match the rest of the set.  

For a fraction of the cost of recovering or replacement,  the dining set was complete and ready for dinner ☺

The Governor’s Rugs

HK is honored…

Rugs Hammond Knoll cleaned in the governor's mansion in Olympia, WA

We felt honored to be asked to clean this very large, 16’ x 23’ handmade rug, as well as a few others, in the Governor’s mansion in Olympia.

As you may or may not know, we typically clean rugs in our facility using one of many specialty cleaning processes. However, in this case, we sent our experts out to carefully clean these rugs while being cautious of the beautiful furnishings and hardwood floor underneath.

To say we feel pretty excited is an understatement!

A Success Story You Can Sink Your Teeth Into

This is the Burger Claim restaurant in Centralia. 

The kitchen floors were heavily soiled with grease.  As a matter of fact, the grout lines you see on the bottom left corner were actually grease. 😱 It was so packed with grease, there was very little grout in the lines.

A heavy-duty cleaning, a lot of scrubbing and re-grouting made this kitchen sparkle!

The owners were so happy they told our two technicians they could come in for FREE BURGERS FOR LIFE! 🍔

From scummy showers to wood that’s worse for the wear – and nearly everything in-between – you need a trusted professional cleaning company that’s your go-to for regular maintenance, as well as the bigger, unexpected situations that come up.
