First time tiler

Post by Chris_ach »

I'm really struggling to clean the tiles after laying them.

There's a mixture of grout but mainly excess adhesive spots I can't shift.

Any tips or advice on how to clean these porcelain tiles up.

I'm hoping there not scratch marks from removing stubborn adhesive.

You'll need something like "Lithofin KF Cement Residue Remover"

Excess adhesive should have been wiped off with a damp sponge as you were laying them.
They should have been sealed before grouting and then sealed again afterwards.

Use something like "Lithofin KF Protective Impregnator" to seal them with when they are properly clean.

Ah OK... Thanks for the tip Darren. I'll buy some of the recommended cement remover residue product, and sealer.

Thanks again
