There's a hazy, grout-like residue smeared all over my just-installed ceramic tile floors. Can this be fixed?
The haziness that your see is probably grout smear from the installation process. This can be safely removed using our Restore™ Acidic Cleaner for Ceramic Tile and Grout. Make sure you protect all walls, baseboards, carpeted areas, plants, foliage and metals. Restore™ may damage stainless steel and other surfaces. Sweep or dust mop loose dirt and debris off of the floor. Prepare a solution of 1 part of Restore™ mixed with 4 parts of warm or hot water. Liberally apply over your floor using a sponge or mop. Agitate well using a stiff nylon bristle scrub brush or stiff bristle push broom. Rinse well with clean water and mop, sponge or wet vacuum to remove the remaining solution. Repeat the rinsing and wet vacuum process to insure that all dirt, soil and cleaner residue have been removed. Thoroughly rinse all metal surfaces. We would strongly recommend sealing the floor once you’ve remove the grout haze to protect it from staining and soiling. Use our Grout Sealer for protection against oil- and water-based stains.
