CLEANING GROUT: (Daily-Weekly)
Product: Ceramiclean®
  1. Remove all abrasive debris from the floor surface.
  2. Mix 1-2 ounces of Ceramiclean per gallon of warm water.
  3. With a clean bucket and clean rayon or sponge mop, apply the Ceramiclean to the surface.
  4. Let the solution dry.
  5. Rinsing is only required for heavily soiled surfaces
INTENSIVE CLEANING: (As Needed)
Product: Stone Quest®
  1. Be sure the surface is free from loose debris and sediment.
  2. CLEANING DILUTION RATIOS:
    - Light soil (2 ounces to 1 gallon of warm water)
    - Medium soil (6 ounces to 1 gallon of warm water)
    - Heavy soil (10 ounces to 1 gallon of warm water)
  3. Dilute STONE QUEST accordingly.
  4. Apply solution with a clean rayon mop or sponge mop.
  5. Let solution set for one minute.
    (On polished marble or limestone let it set for a maximum of one minute.)
  6. Pick up solution with a mop or wet/dry vacuum.
  7. Lightly rinse with MARBALEX using a clean rayon mop or sponge mop.
SEALING GROUT: (Every 1-3 years)
Product: Grout Lock™
  1. Allow newly applied grout to cure overnight before applying sealer.
  2. Clean existing grout thoroughly before sealing.
  3. Test in an inconspicuous place for compatibility and satisfactory seal by seeing if water beads on the surface.
  4. SHAKE CAN WELL BEFORE USING.
  5. Invert can and point nozzle away from you; aim it at the grout line from a height of 10-15 inches.
  6. Press the nozzle and spray along the grout line, avoiding excess sealer that may result in pooling or residue.
  7. If pooling occurs, it is best to remove with a cloth while wet. (A cloth dampened with warm water will easily wipe up residue when it is dried).
  8. Apply a second coat after 30 minutes for best protection.
  9. At least one hour after sealing, apply a drop of water to the grout. If it does not bead up and is absorbed, another coat should be applied.
    * The floor may be walked on when dried to the touch and full cure is achieved in 24 hours.
    * Depending on traffic and wear, sealer may need to be reapplied after 1-3 years.
RESTORING GROUT COLOR: (As Needed)
Product: Grout Ink™
  1. Ensure surface is free from grease, dirt and other contaminants.
  2. Shake well with cap on before use. Remove cap, and then press pen down vertically for a minute until you see the ink starting to flow.
  3. Apply two (2) coats an hour apart.
  4. Replace cap when not in use.
    * If grout is dirty, clean with SCI's Ceramiclean® before using the Grout Ink.
    * Note: Ink colors may appear slightly different from the color of the pen caps.
