Tiles & Grout


What is the best way to clean the tiles and grout once they have been treated with EnduroShield®?

To keep your tiles and grout looking new, clean each week using a damp microfibre cloth and a mild detergent to remove any soap scum, dirt or grime from the tiled surface. If required to control mould, a solution of bleach and water (1 part bleach to 4 parts water) can be sprayed onto effected grout lines and left overnight.

 

Warning: The EnduroShield coating can be affected by cleaning products containing strong alkalis and by modern mould removing agents containing a combination of bleach and sodium hydroxide. Avoid these and use alternatives such as pure white vinegar or diluted tea tree oil to treat mould on glass and surrounding areas such as tiles.

 


How often do the tiles & grout need to be cleaned once EnduroShield® has been applied?

To keep your tiles and grout looking new, clean each week using a damp microfibre cloth and a mild detergent to remove any soap scum, dirt or grime from the tiled surface.

 


Will the coating crack, peel or discolour over time?

No the coating is only 2 molecules thick and is transparent. It will not crack or discolor over time. It is not like a lacquer or varnish.

 


Does the coating get attacked by chemicals?

Generally no, but the coating can be effected by strong acids and alkali's.

 


Will the surface become patchy if the coating is worn off in any way?

No. The coating is only two molecules thick and transparent, thus it does not change the appearance of the surface. If an abrasive was to be used, where the coating was worn away would not be visible.

 

That area would, however, be harder to clean. The unprotected surface can be easily repaired by cleaning and re-spraying with EnduroShield. The molecules will bond directly to the untreated surface.

 


Do I still need to seal the tiles after I have EnduroShield® applied?

No, the coating not only creates an easy to clean surface, but also a protective barrier to resist staining.  

 


Can I have EnduroShield® applied over tiles that have already been sealed with a product?

No, the product needs to be applied to untreated tiles and grout in order to bond with the surface.

 


Can EnduroShield® be applied to floor tiles?

Yes, testing has shown that the coating will not make the surface slippery. As the tile is sealed, and protected from water soaking into the surface, the water beads, and the conditions that cause slipperiness are reduced. Abrasion will limit the durability of the coating in high traffic areas.
