         C.   Sealing Procedures
                      All stone, grout and porous tile should be sealed using an impregnating sealer to protect the surfaces while preserving the natural ap-
                      pearance.
                      1.  Sweep or vacuum floor to remove particle soils. An untreated microfiber dust mop is suggested.
                      2.  Protect surfaces not being sealed.
                      3.  For stone floors or porous tiles, apply an even coat of Spinergy Solidrock using a slightly damp rayon mop, a roller or sprayer.
                          For porcelain, glazed ceramic or other non-porous tiles, apply Spinergy Solidrock to the grout lines only. There are a variety of tools
                        to help you in this task. Any sealer that gets on the tile should be wiped off before it dries.
                        For large areas of tile, spread the sealer using a clean rubber squeegee. This can be followed by a rotary floor machine fitted with a
                        white pad. This will remove excess sealer and polish the tile.
                      4.  An optional second coat may be applied to porous stone after the first coat has dried.

        D.   Acid Cleaning for Tile and Grout

                            CAUTION! This process should not be used on any stone floors containing calcium. Acids can etch limestone, travertine, marble and other stone containing calcium. Acid
                            cleaning removes mineral deposits, soap scum, hard water deposits, urine stains, efflorescence and rust. It can also remove other stubborn stains from grout by actually
                            removing a microscopic layer of the grout. Acid cleaning is most effective when it follows the restorative cleaning process described in Section B.
