Grout cleaning Tampa: Removing sealer haze

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Sealer haze: Natural stone and grout surfaces can only hold a certain amount of sealer.

If excess sealer is left on the surface and it dries it could cause a smooth, silky white haze.

Sealer haze on the surface of tile and stone surfaces will wear off during normal foot traffic. Sealer haze on grout lines can be cleaned using a towel soaked with fresh sealer. This will dissolve the excess and can be wiped away.

In extreme conditions using a high ph tile and grout cleaner and a rotary scrubber can speed up the process of removal.

Wood floor cleaning and refinishing: Removing Quick Shine Floor Finish from your hardwood floors

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Removing Holloway’s Quick Shine, Orange Glo, or many other wood floor care products can be a very tough, costly and fustrating job if you don’t know what you are doing.

National Cleaning Specialist of Tampa Bay can remove and restore wood floors. For removal of wood floor cleaners and floor finish call 813-435-1331 serving Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Brandon, Valrico, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Lutz Florida areas.

We recently had a customer hire us to clean and remove the product ” Quick Shine Floor Finish and Orange Glow from her new laminate floors which had caused an uneven and blotchy sheen. We were able to remove the product and clean her laminate floors following these steps

Products needed:

• Spray bottle (optional)

• Scotch-Brite abrasive pad (green scrub pad with yellow sponge-NOT an SOS, Brillo or steel wool pad)

• Soft towels

• New and well rinsed sponge mop OR terrycloth mop

• Rubber/latex gloves and safety goggles (recommended to prevent eye/skin irritation when handling IFT)

Process

It’s best to begin with a test section in an inconspicuous area (i.e. behind a door). We recommend working in

small sections as you complete this process. Complete all steps before moving onto another section of the

floor.

1. Apply a SMALL amount of the IFT solution to a section of the floor. Use a spray bottle to mist the floor

or squirt a small amount and spread it with a soft cloth. Apply only enough cleaner to wet the floor.

2. Use the abrasive pad and scrub the area. This should remove the wax buildup.

3. After scrubbing the area, wipe the section with a water dampened cloth.

4. The final step is to apply Squeaky Cleaner with a microfiber mop. No water rinse is necessary after this

cleaner is applied. Wipe/mop the floor until it is dry – do not leave the floor wet.

If this is successful in removing the contaminant, proceed with the rest of the floor, following all steps. You may

need to repeat steps 1 & 2 more than once.

If you are not successful in removing the contaminant with this process, you need to remove the remaining

product by abrading the floor (screening or sanding). It is recommended to hire a professional flooring

contractor if abrasion techniques are required.
