My tiles have a white residue that keeps reappearing once washed surface is dry
This is a common problem which is called grout haze. This happens when the residual grout has not been fully removed from the tile and has now hardened on the surface. For a ceramic or porcelain tile we recommend our cleaner “Cement & Grout Residue Remover” to remove this residue. However, if you have a natural stone tile we recommend a ph neutral stone cleaner called “Stontex Rust Off” to safely remove this grout haze from acid sensitive natural stone tiles.
The Stone Doctor recommends that natural stone and some porcelain tiles should be sealed once the material is clean and dry.
You have two choices:
- Our “Stontex Platinum Stone Sealer” which lasts up to 5 years before you need to re-seal or
- For a permanent solution we recommend our premium sealer “Dry Treat Stain Proof”.
