Tile Care after installation
  • Initial cleaning after floor installation is essential and important in order to remove all mortar, sand and grout residues that may be left.
  • Niro Granite, the Swiss-quality tile can be cleaned by scrubbing the installation with clear water and a neutral amount of detergent with thorough rinsing.
  • If grout residue still remains, further cleaning of the tile can be accomplished by using a grout remover. Equipment recommended for aggressive cleaning are floor scrubbers or floor buffing machines equipped with a nylon pad or brush. A wet vacuum should be used to pick up suspended grout residue and construction dirty completely.
  • Caution should be exercised when using acid or acid-based cleaner as they can adversely affect the grout. Avoid using “hydrofluoric acid” to its compounds, according to UNI-EN 176.
  • If acid is used for cleaning the installation, cautioned to use diluted “sulphuric acid" or diluted “hydrochloric acid" mixed in a correct mixture or concentration. It is important that before the acid solution is placed on the floor, the grout joints be thoroughly saturated with water first. Installers should wait until the grout joint has fully cured. Usually it takes up to 7 to 10 days, before using acidic cleaners.
