I scrubbed this with an auto scrubber and this is what happened. What’s the best way to clean this type of floor? Thanks in advance

If using an auto-scrubber - use a high alkaline with a solvent like Viper Venom with Citrus Solv Powder for the heavy cleaning. Use a neutral cleaner for daily maintenance. Do have someone who can mop up any drips or water left behind before it dries on the tile. You will probably need to do some areas with a grout brush for additional agitation.

If you have a spinner tool, use at about 800 PSI. Same products.

Thanks Scott. This is post construction cleaning and I’m getting water flipping from the squeegee. This will be a regular maintenance thing and was wondering how to prevent this. If I go diagonal to the tile it doesn’t happen. That’s not always gonna be able to happen.
Guess I’ll just have to damp mop behind.
