Steaks on Granite Flooring

Asked by Lynne Oskooi from High Peak Derbyshire: Kitchen Floor with black galaxy high gloss granite tiles. How do I clean to keep shine and not leave streaks. Have tried several cleaning solutions such as flash, vinegar and water, or just warm water, but all leave streaks. Also builder has put light grout down which I hate. Is there a black dye for grout I could use which would not damage the tile.

TileProf says: Please don't use anything acidic to clean your Granite tiles as this will eventually harm the surface even Flash has a PH value of 9.5 and is really only designed for cleaning Ceramic floors. For cleaning a natural stone floor you should use a product with a neutral PH such as our Neutral Cleaner, see link below for further details: http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/Tile-Stone-Cleaner.asp If you don't like the colour of the Grout then I can recommend the Aquamix range of Grout Colourants, they can be used safely with any surface and come in a range of colours including black, we have sold hundreds of these products and never had a complaint only compliments, more details on the web page below: http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/GroutColourant.html Russell Taylor Tile Doctor Ltd
