I accidentally stained my tiles, what can I do?

Contrary to ceramic tiles, cement tiles are not exposed to firing but gain their strength from curing. The pigment layer is about 3-4 mm which gives the tiles a long lifespan. This means that it’s possible to sand the surface of the tiles if stains have accrued.

Scrub the tiles with a fine-grained (400+ grit) sandpaper with mild soap and water. Sand the tiles in a small spaces at the time and try in a less visible area before you move on to the whole area and sand the tiles gently. Be sure to flush the tiles will lots of clean water thereafter so that no soap remains. In extreme cases it can help to sand the tiles together with Stone & Tile Intensive cleaner.

Allow the tiles to dry over night before applying sealer until the tiles are fully saturated.
