Help needed to clean tiles

Post by Photoman » October 15, 2018, 11:21 pm

Hi


I've had various tiling jobs carried out but the wonderful builder has left cement and paint splashes all the black non slip floor tiles . Any ideas ? .

I am from the UK and there is a acid like product to clean brickwork etc , and I wonder if there is a simular product here .

Thank you

any shop like global/thaiwatsa...has products to remove stains on tiles , fe homepro/boonthavorn are selling the HG brand products which are very good but not cheap , what i used to clean tiles after dirty work is a dilution of hydrochloric acid (i have it for the swim anyway ) and water , but beware/careful if you are not used to working with this ,use protective gloves enc...,because it is as it says ...acid... ;)

Simple and cheap option to get the cement residue off of the newly laid tiles is cooking oil and a green scrubber. Then wash off with soap and water.

O K , If you have porcelain tiles theres a very good chance that the paint has soaked into the grain of the tile and is embedded into the tile and not just the surface .
If this is the case , you my friend have a nightmare on your hands.

I had that problem with latex paint drops on the tile floor. None of the cleaners I tried would touch them. I finally used a razor blade scraper. That made short work of them. It also worked well on windows.

Actually I would have been better off doing the painting myself. Not much more work.
