A Stone or Ceramic tile repair can involve both replacing ceramic tile or stone tiles. This may be due to a cracked or chipped tile, or one that's damaged beyond repair. In some cases, it can even be because of a stubborn stain on the surface of your Natural stone flooring or Unglazed Ceramic tile.
You can try cleaning your tiles with your routine tile cleaner, But sometimes you may run into stubborn stains where cleaning them alone just won't do.
So what do you do?
Well, You could resort to replacing Ceramic tile or Stone tiles to solve this challenge? But replacing the tiles also includes replacing grout. So now you'll not only have to locate a tile to match your Natural Stone flooring or Unglazed Ceramic tile, but also have the chore of finding and replacing grout of the same color.
If you've already cleaned your Natural Stone Flooring or Unglazed Ceramic Tile with your routine tile cleaner, but a few stains still remain.
The first thing to do is check with a tile supplier for a cleaner designed to remove stains from Natural Stone flooring or Unglazed Ceramic tile.
No worry for Glazed Ceramic tiles because they don't stain!
If the recommended product doesn't get rid of the stain on your tiles, Your next step is to use a poultice.
A poultice solution is a great stain removing product that you can find at any good tile supplier. It's a powder that you mix with water to create a paste.
You then spread the paste over the stain on your tile and cover the Poultice solution with a piece of food plastic wrap. You'll want to secure the plastic to the surrounding tile surface with masking tape. The plastic wrap is taped down on all sides, so it creates a shield to prevent the Poultice mixture from drying out.
Allow the paste to work overnight. In the morning remove the plastic and wash away the poultice with a tiling sponge and soap and water.
The poultice paste sucks the stain right out of the tile!
It's not likely, but if necessary repeat the process until the stain is completely gone.
