Subject: Removing Grout Film and Haze from Marble
Question: My tile setter just installed 18″ x 18″ Carrara White marble tiles in my home. There is a film or haze on some of the tiles. It is particularly noticeable in the reflection near the windows. I have mopped the floor with water but this has not removed the film. What product should I use?

Hi Hassan,
It is clear that the grout has left a haze or film on the surface of the marble. Sometimes water alone, after the grout has dried, may not remove the residues. I suggest using a 50%/50% solution of R55 Intensive Cleaner with water. See link below. Mop or use a soft bristle scrub brush, allow to dwell on the surface for 10 minutes and mop up. Rinse two times with clean water and allow to dry.

As you may know, your marble also needs to be sealed. I highly recommend the S34 Impregnating Sealer:
