Sounds like there's soap left on the tiles. Get some hard water and soap scum remover that should take it right offHello everyone. The maid called me to say their is a haze, cloudy look on the white tile I cleaned. Pristine house. The tile always looked great. They wanted the grout lines to look cleaner. I used tile master and let it sit for 10 minutes. The maids mopped with clean water but the cloudy areas remain. Did the tile master cause this or was it water drying on the tile and the minerals staining the tile. How can I fix this if it was caused by my cleaning agent ? How can I fix this if it was cause by drying water ?. I'm 1,200 miles away from where I did the job so I can't go by to test solutions to this problem. I'm guessing it is a 5- 10 million dollar home. I've always used tile master and never had a problem. I don't know if I should have been more cautious with white tile.
brother all it needs if you have tile instead of natural stone is redo the job with a neutral cleaner. It will probably be cheaper to find a local guy to go deal with it on your behalf and charge you for it. @tom patnode lives in SD if the house is located there. If you are flying back, stop by my place and sell me my wand. My back up is screaming for replacement.This is house the homeowner uses during the winter months. If I wait a couple months will it be harder to fix. Or should I fly down ASAP to fix this. Two methods were mentioned i75 with white pad or hard water soap scum remover ?
Yes you guys are right. The homeowners house is in Florida and im in New York now.
ALWAYS when Color Seal is evident..tell them to EXPECT an Issue! For scratches..go get a Magic Eraser Thang Mr Clean style.Thanks for the help. If this was a one time customer.it would be great to pay someone else and not have it cost me more money and time flying down. But i ve done work for him for around four years. He says he will back anything i do. I dont know if he means financially as well but if im in the area he will provide me work .If someone else does the fix then i look like i had no clue on what i was doing and someone else with more knowledge had to come in and fix the disaster i created. Ithink i will try the hard water soap scum remover by hand. If it doesnt work i will have to use i75 and white pad. But if i start tearing into the white color seal in the grout lines i will then have to do a complete color seal. This house is immaculate with two full time maids. They will never say it looks ok dont worry about it. I have to fix this. I charged $ 510 and i used a mytee water hog, mytee ltd5 turbo hybrid spinner, to set up cllean and break down 5 hours approx 500-700 sf alot of cords and hoses and making sure i did t scratch the floors with quick disconnects
