Hey guys so we just did a huge residential tile job yesterday. Customer was very happy until this morning she sent the pictures. Very patient lady but wanted the issue corrected understandably.

My process was this:
-Sweep
-Applied Treatment to roughly 200sqft sections vía Pump up sprayer (2 scoops Groutmaster for every gallon of hot water)
-CRB agitation
- HWE with TH40 spinner
-Air mover in completed sections while I repeated process on other sections.

My question is, since it was a huge job and it took such a long time because of how big the property is, can I just go in there with Acid cleaner diluted down and take a rag/scrubber/mop to the spots?

I really want to avoid hooking up the Truckmount and routing hoses through the property again. But if I have to I have to.

GM haze. You didn't rinse thoroughly or else you allowed the GM to dry.
That plank tile can be tricky.

The first picture has a footprint, the last you can see where the spinner tool stopped.
Reapply GM and rinse again.

Would using Viper Renew on a wet rag be out of the question? The homeowner is hosting an event and is going to have people in n out possibly. I was trying to keep the hoses/equipment out of everyone’s way.

If you want to spot clean try an alcohol glass cleaner or even rubbing alcohol.

Yeah seems like you maybe sprayed too much , need to reactivate it to wipe up.
