Pam asked: After having a fireplace built on our sunporch, they got cement on my quarry tile floor. How do I get the cement off the tile?
Ceramic tile is much harder than cement and can tolerate the cleaning methods needed to break down and remove the cement. For thin layers or small amounts of cement, common household products may be sufficient for removal. However, for larger jobs, stronger acids may be needed to get the job done. If the tile is glazed, use caution as even a weak acid like vinegar can eat through the glaze. Be sure to protect your skin and use good ventilation as you work through the steps below.
