Directions for Use

Preparations: Before SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner can be used, surfaces must be dry and completely free of sealers (See Patch Test).

Patch Test: Before cleaning withSureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner, it is necessary to do a patch test. This will determine the product's suitability and whether there are any sealers present. Pour a small amount of SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner directly on to the floor in an inconspicuous area and lightly agitate it with a stiff bristled brush. Look for bubbling to appear in the grout joints. If it does not, a sealer is present and must be removed before proceeding. Ordinary floor strippers will remove water-based sealers. If a solvent-based sealer is present, a paint stripper can be used to remove it. Upon completion of stripping, repeat the test procedure. When bubbling occurs, allow SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner 10 to 20 minutes to work, and afterwards, agitate the test area a second time and rinse. Because grout joints appear darker while wet, allow the test area to dry completely before assessing the results.

Application
1. Apply SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner undiluted, thoroughly wetting the surface. On floors, the easiest way to do this is to pour it directly onto the surface and spread it out with a mop. SureSeal Grout & Tile Cleaner is not recommended to be run through an auto scrubber.
2. Agitate SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner lightly to disperse it into the grout joints. On large areas, a floor machine with a scrubbing brush attachment works best.
3. Allow SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner time to work. This usually takes about 15 minutes, but there is no hurry to rinse it off. SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner can be left on ceramic tile floors safely for up to an hour or possibly longer.
4. Agitate the surface a second time to remove the loosened grime, and rinse. For this procedure, an auto scrubber is ideal to use, but if one is unavailable or impractical to use, the best way to rinse SureSeal Grout & Tile Restoration Cleaner is to flood rinse and wet vac.
