Red paint on tiles!

Asked by Charlotte from Coventry: Hello! Just moved in to a place and the previous owners painted the reclaimed quarry tile floor red - badly - as it comes off with water, fairy liquid and a scrubbing brush - it doesn't however come off entirely and if I have to sit with a brush and do every tile it will take a million years - it is also stuck in the grouting quite badly - help please! How do I get rid of it and not damage my tiles?

TileProf says: Hi There, Best to try Remove and Go firt apply it neat and leave it for an hour and then scrub and rinse the Tiles with water, if you have a Wet Vac machine to suck up the residue. If you still have some left try a wall paper steamer to help lift the paint residue to the surface and then scrub the Tiles with water.
