Product Details

Highly effective cleaner for the removal of grout hazes and cement mess

Cement & Grout Haze Remover is suitable for removing general grout haze & cement staining from acid resistant natural stone, pavers & tiles. This includes sandstones, slate, porcelain, ceramic tiles and clay-based tiles. It can also be used as an efflorescence remover on brickwork, acid resistant natural stone and block pavers. Apply the solution to newly installed patios, driveways and pavers to remove cement residues left from the construction process. After use, always heavily rinse the surface as cement residues will be suspended in the liquid. The rinsing process will ensure any contaminants are removed from the surface. Follow the same process when removing efflorescence from block pavers, natural stone & tiles. Cement & Grout Haze Remover will remove general grout hazes left after tiling internal floors or walls. Always rinse the treated surface with clean water after its use. Once the tiles are dry simply buff the surface with a soft cloth, thus removing any remaining contaminants. Increase the dilution rate of this product to suit the particular conditions found on site. For heavy contamination of cement or grout, you may wish to use the product neat and/or repeat the process.

Suitable for remaining deposits from all non acid sensitive natural stone

This product is suitable for use on sandstone, slate, porcelain tiles, ceramic tiles, clay-based tiles and clay-based block pavers. Cement & Grout Haze Remover is not to be used on acid sensitive surfaces like marble, travertine, concrete, cement pavers, limestone and terrazzo. Cement residues left on darker stones, like slate, will be very obvious after installation. It will make the surface look pale, patchy and unattractive. Cement & Grout Haze Remover will effectively and easily remove the staining. Once the staining is removed we recommend sealing the surface to protect the stone. Sealing the surface means it will resist water and oil-based staining, ongoing maintenance becomes easier. We have various sealers available to suit any requirement.
