Mix Remove and Go 50/50 with Nanotech Ultra Clean and leave in place for an hour before scrubbing and rinsing the floor with water. You may need to hire a Wet Vac machine to soak up the excess residue, then scrub and rinse with water again, cleaning the grout lines as you go.

Remove any cleaning solution using a wet-dry vac machine (any cleaning solution left on the surface may impact the performance of the sealer) then neutralise floor with clean water prior to sealing, remove with a wet-dry Vac machine and allow to dry overnight.

Alternatively if you have the use of a 350 RPM (or higher) buffing machine use a Red Twister pad to take off the Old sealer and ground in dirt, add water to the area and then go over each Tile 3 or 4 times, then remove the dirty water using a Vac machine and rinse the floor. Next take off the Red pad and apply a White Twister pad, repeat the process with this pad followed by the Yellow Twister Pad, remove the water with a Vac machine and then finally complete the polishing by applying a Green Twister Pad and polish with a squirt of water. When polishing is complete proceed to clean the grout.

When the floor is fully dry apply 2 coats of Tile Doctor Colour Grow enhancing sealer using a clean dry terry cloth (not the fluffy variety). Rub Sealant into the tile. Allow to dry before applying a second coat. Use a water test to achieve full cure sealability (F.C.S.).

For regular cleaning use a sealer friendly cleaning product such as Neutral Tile Cleaner which has been especially formulated for the regular cleaning of Sealed Stone and Tile surfaces keeping them fresh with a pleasant mint scent.

PLEASE NOTE: Most sealers break down after 2-3 years (depending on usage) and will need to be re-applied.
