Common Problems Hard water stains or soap scum's in the sink, urinals, toilets, showers, bath tubs, and etc.

If the stain is light- Try light acid restroom cleaner such as Foamy Q and A, from Spartan Chemical co. Spray over the area and let it dwell for few minutes and gently scrub with walnut or white pad and rinse with clean water.

If the stain is heavy- Try medium acid restroom cleaner such as Shooter from Dynamic Chemical Co. Apply the chemical to the area and let it sit for few minutes and gently scrub with walnut or white pad.

Note: Shooter (if you want to try using Shooter- please read the direction fully before using it), or other medium to strong acid chemicals should not be used on the polished stone surfaces- it will tarnish the surface. If you want to take the safe route- try the Bio Clean hard water deposit removers. It is safe to use on glasses, porcelains, and other items that needs no harsh chemicals. Company that makes Bio Clean, also manufactures, sealer for glasses, porcelains and Formicas and etc. Some areas in the grout may need some brushing with nylon brush to reach into the grout. Rinse off with clean water.

Note: If the stain is really heavy- You might have to repeat several times to clean up to your satisfaction. Try using Pumice Stone (only for toilets, urinals, only) along with other cleaning solutions. Mildew in the grouts If mildew area is small - Try Mildew Remover from the Store and gently scrub with walnut pad and a brush for grouts. If mildew area is reoccurring constantly- Try sealing the area after cleaning the area really well.

If want to seal the area-

1: Clean the area well- completely remove all soap scum's and mildews and wait until it is completely dry.

2: Seal the surface with Impregnator sealer. Use sponge or use brush to seal the grout completely. Seal only the area that is affected unless you would like to seal entire walls and floors.

3: Do not use 3-4 hours. Note: Do not try using Bleach until the last resort. Bleach can change colors on many surfaces, such as painted surfaces, Formica tops, wood surface and especially do not use it near the carpeted area.

Carpet color will be damaged permanently, if bleach is use on it or dropped.

Note: You must read all information on the bottle of each chemical company's direction and caution notes before using.

Note: Always try a small area for testing, before doing a large area.
