One of the most common causes of hazy film on tile floors is the cleaning products that have been used. Some products on the market purport to clean and shine your floors, but over time they leave a build-up that results in the white haze. You can remove this film and prevent it in the future by using different products outlined in this article.
Things You'll Need
- Scrub brush
- Towels or rags
Mix 1 gallon of warm water with 1/2 cup of ammonia in a bucket.
Do a small spot test or check with the manufacturer to make sure that ammonia is safe to use on your floor.
Apply the solution to the entire floor with a mop and let it stand for five minutes.
Use old towels or rags to wipe up the solution. If there is a lot of build up, this may not be sufficient and you will need to be a bit more vigorous. Use a scrub brush in a circular motion before wiping up the solution.
Repeat the process as many times as necessary until the white build-up of film is gone.
