Better Bio #179
Amazing safe degreaser for tile, natural stone + stainless steal  
 Crystal Clean
pH Neutral Cleaner
Better Bio #179!
Not only is this product a great and safe Degreaser for tile and stone but for all around the house, garage and more...It is great for deep cleaning stainless steal - your stove and hood.  Spray it on the surface with a micro fiber towel and scrub it with the grain of the surface until the dirt and greast are gone, then rinse with water.(remember water is the neutralizaing agent) and buff it dry with a clean micro fiber clothe again with the grain of the surface.  Later you can apply a Stainless Steel polish if needed. 
Ready to Use Stone Pro Crystal Clean...

  Again we are focusing this product because many of our clients have "honed" black absolute.  Black absolute is a great stone when left polish.  When it is honed it becomes a maintenance problem: it spots, stains and even the oils from your finger will leave a stain.  The old fix was acetone.  The Stone Pro Crystal clean with a micro fiber towel will safely remove these stains and blemishes plus add a bit of sealer on the stone.  Clean the surface and buff wet to dry.  Not to sound like a broken record but cut down on the dish soap, all the dish soap deos is add a soapy residue on the surface and over time creats oily and sticky messes with will dull the surface.

New Trends in the Industry
The new trends in the tile industry is very large tiles or slabs with small grout lines.
 The problem with this is that the modified latex in the thin set is not fully drying in the middle of the tiles or slabs and causing problems like spalling and discoloration of the grout lines. The water mixed in the thin set is not fully evaporating making the latex not able to fully cure and moisture is trapped under the tiles or natural stone.
   The new standard is anything over 15 inches in any direction should use a Medium Bed mortar. This information was acquired by Greg Mowat who is one of the top Forensic tile experts in the United States and is also on the ANSI A-108 accredited standards committee
