Stains on Terracotta

Asked by Sara from Bradford: hi, i have recently moved in my new house, and have a terracotta ceramic large tiles in my conservatory. it has large white stains patches which i have bin told was from a steam cleaner which was giving out 100 degrees hot steam which was pressed drirectly on tiles. previous owners were trying to take off paint. i have tried to take out stain using grout remover from tiles r us, but no joy. is there any coating or anything i can do to bring back its own colour. thnx

TileProf says: Thanks for the e-mail, Terra-cotta is not easy to clean are due to its highly porous nature, you would need Buffing machines Black Pads and a Wet Vac Machine before you can get a result.
