I still need a class or two. Having issues getting raised build up off certain areas. I’m thinking a screen next time.

Looks good to me too. What was your method? Grout Master? Scrub with 175? Turbo Tool spinner?

The university has a contract with Eco-lab. So used Eco-lab intensive cleaner. And a Cimex with Black brushes. I really like the Cimex in bathrooms. I can set it on a really bad spot and walk away from it to clean a corner. Then move it agin to the next spot.
WISH I HAD A SPINNER! It was one of those nights that the wet vac stopped working so I had to run my mop.

I tried the the black stripper pad last night. ☹️
Of course the corners took awhile because more sealer was mopped into them then on other parts of the floor. Although plenty of that everywhere. But under the paper towel dispensers it’s a common problem in all the bathrooms. It’s thick and almost has a feel of asphalt.
And thank you Ed.
