After grouting the joints, It is important to remove the
excess grout with a sponge and clear water. After 12/48
hours, the grout in the joints will have “set up”/hardened
significantly. There will be a noticeable residual “haze”.
Typically, a diluted acid cleaner ideal for removing “Grout Haze”, combined with a soft scrubbing pad will remove the majority if not all the “Haze”.
Change your acid/water solution frequently for best results. It is also recommended to keep a bucket of clean water to remove the acid/water solution. It is recommended to keep and use clean dry towels to help remove as much residual water and keep the wall as dry as possible.
Please refer to the cleaning chemical company’s suggested methods and dilution rates. For areas with excess grout or grout that becomes adhered to the face of the porcelain veneer, further cleaning with an Acid/ Water Solution may be necessary.
Please refer to the Cleaning Chemical Company’s instructions as not all acids or chemicals are the same. The excess grout residue must be removed so that it does not dry and stick on the surface. It is necessary to change the cleaning water frequently and rinse well. If such cleaning procedure is not carried out, or if such cleaning is carried out too late, the grout residue could create an absorbent film, which holds dirt, making the surface difficult to clean: in this case, Landmark Ceramics will not be liable for any damage caused to the surface.
Ordinary maintenance must be carried out using specialized detergents to remove stains but these detergents must not leave a wax, film or membrane residue. Rinsing well with plenty of clean water is a fundamental part of the cleaning procedure, therefore we advise against the use of products which state that they “do not need rinsing”.
Veneer World is recommended for indoor and outdoor walls, in commercial and residential application. Landmark recommends an offset no greater than 30%, if a staggered pattern is required for tiles of 20” inches or longer. Landmark recommends the use of leveler for a proper installation.
