How do you clean the film off tile after using this product?

This question is from TileLab 32 oz. Heavy-Duty Stripper and Cleaner
Asked by
Heather
Suwanee, GA
July 18, 2012
I put this product on after tiling and didn't wash immediately. I washed about an hour later and there was still a white film. I then washed again and there is still an awful film. Did I ruin my floor by leaving this on? How can I fix this?

Answer: 
I can't speak to potential floor damage. I don't know how you attempted to wash the product away but, after using it, I flood the floor, in approximately six square foot sections, with three to four cups of water then vacuum off with a shop vac. I repeat this process at least three times. I've found this approach more effective than the mop and bucket approach I used to use.

Answer: 
I have not seen or dealt with this issue myself. I would carefully re-apply the stripper in a small test area to see if this would fix the problem before I started applying more physical polishing methods. Is the white residue from the grouting activity (calciferous, or cement??)

I would try to use it again on one tile area. Let it sit some. Then scrub with a non-abrasive scrubber. It that doesnt work try the haze remove. same way as above. Good Luck

Answer: 
Start the process all over and use the "hardest" bristle brushes you can find or the the :coursest machine pad. Do small areas at a time. With quarry tile it is a very long and labor intensive undertaking...no matter what anyone tells you.

Is TileLab's Heavy Duty Stripper and Cleaner strong enough to remove the Gloss Sealer & Finish (also from TileLab) from my porcelain floor tile?.

This question is from TileLab 32 oz. Heavy-Duty Stripper and Cleaner
Asked by
Fontana, CA

October 6, 2014
In addition to giving the new porcelain tile a "high gloss" effect, I also thought it would eliminate scuff marks which was not the case. As a DIY "beginner", I was not aware that the Gloss Sealer & Finish would not work for porcelain tile. (Live and learn!) Upon removing the scuff marks, the shine is compromised and disappears. Hence, I am opting to remove the gloss from the tile; it'll make removing scuff marks easier. Thank you for your assistance!

Answer: 
It did not work on my porceline, and I hired professionals....they gave up and are currently calling the Tilelab rep to figure out what will remove this stuff....they tried 3 of their normal cleaners already. If you have tilelab product on your porceline, your only recourse might be to see if Home Depot will stand behind the damage their products creat.

Answer: 
Use TileLab Heavy Duty Stripper and Cleaner to remove the Gloss Sealer & Finish. Porcelain tile is highly dense with a very low absortion rate. Sealers are designed for usage on absorptive surfaces such as marble, cement tile, cement grout etc. If you need further assistance contact our care & maintenance division at 800.282.8786

Answer: 
I have not used this product to remove a penetarating sealer. First try an alkaline cleaner on a small area and see if the original sealer will be removed. If this doesnt work then try
a urethane based "stripper". This is a harsh chemical and may not be suitable for a non profesional to attempt. I would advise to try it on one sample tile first.

Answer: 
I used this product for exactly that purpose. My subsequent small hole repairs and resealing went smooth and the new sealer gave the travertine a soft, silky sheen again. Without laboratory testing I cannot claim removal of the old sealer, but this prep work seemed to produce the desired results.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally found something that works! I moved into a older mobile home and didn't realize how filthy the floors were until I mopped and mopped. I tried ammonia per other suggestions. It did ok but the smell was killing me. I looked online for something and came across this and it works GREAT. May 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not totally satisfied This Product is good if your doing a lighter job when stripping. I bought a house that had at least 3 to 5 layers of wax and it took up one layer at a time. For two large rooms it took me three days (appox 6 to 8 hrs) to strip a couple of layers of wax off floor. I hand scrubbed floors. This product would be good if you used between waxing floors or weekly cleaner but was not happy with stripping. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cermic title Delivery was timely and professional. flooring department was very helpful and professional christine Sherry and Nicki. July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We use this monthly to keep our white tile floors looking good & free from grime. Works great if mixed and applied as per directions on bottle. Very easy to use. Follow directions on bottle for best results. Works great in removing dirt, grime, etc from tile. June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great for grout haze Used this product to remove light grout haze from grouted vinyl floor and the haze came off very easily and the product didn't harm my new floor. Very easy to apply, only light scrubing with a sponge needed. Takes some time to clean product off the floor as it is very soapy, but so worth it. June 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth the money Applied TILELAB stripper to our quarry tile floor which has acrylic sealer. Used 2 different formulations: Full strength and diluted per the instructions. Left the stripper on for first attempt 6-8 minutes, used a scrub pad to work stripper in several times. 90% of the areas covered with the stripper would not remove the sealer. Only a small few patches showed some minor removal. Suspect these areas were well worn from foot traffic. The second attempt left the stripper on for 15 minutes. Not worth the $. The smell of the compounds in the stripper are offensive and caused head arches even with the windows open. April 9, 2016
