So we stripped and polished and it looked great once we finished. We will see what the homeowner has to say once it’s all dry and he can see the floors fully. Thanks for all recommendations and help!

You stripped and polished a porcelain? I’m assuming you used an acid along with agitation and extraction?

Yes, and the homeowner made it very clear he was not concerned with us damaging his floors after everything he put on them. But that is what we did, agitation and extraction.

We’re returning to the house tomorrow to try and fix the problem and I’m looking at using an acidic haze remover that’s made for stone, but wanted opinions first. We went into the house and cleaned based on thinking it was ceramic as that’s what the homeowner said, we don’t have a ton of natural stone experience, so didn’t consider that until we were finishing the job and started noticing all of the white deposits in areas where it was already dry. On top of it being a house that was flooded where contractors have already torn down and replaced walls, etc and our limited knowledge regarding natural stone, any and all advice is welcome.
Use extremely hot water to mop the floor with, that should remove that white haze.
