Tile Doctor Acid Gel

Product Announcement Tile Doctor Acid Gel


Removing grout smears or efflorescence from tiled walls is a common problem and something we are often contacted about at Tile Doctor.  The solution is the use of an acid based product however liquids will run down walls and don't hold in position long enough to dwell and get to work on the grout making the job more difficult.



   

Tile Doctor have now resolved this problem with the creation of a new pH1 blend of Phosphoric and Hydrochloric acids in a gel form and being a gel it is especially effective on vertical or sloped surface where where more dwell time is required. 


Tile Doctor are the only company producing an Acid Gel for Tile and Stone, an innovation which has come about after listening to feedback from customers and the 50 Tile Doctors operating in the UK. This close working relationship allows Tile Doctor to respond quickly and to develop solutions to problems affecting the Tile and Stone industry.  

Acid Gel is in stock and available in 1 and 5 litre bottles ready to order via the web site via the following link:  http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/TD-Acid-Gel.asp

Announcing the Tile Doctor Maintenance Plan


We often receive requests from customers to provide regular maintenance for their floors, especially for the upkeep of sealed and polished stone floors such as Limestone, Marble and Travertine.   Previously we have done this on an adhoc basis as and when requested which is not ideal for either the customer or the Tile Doctor. 

We have taken that feedback on board and are now able to offer a structured maintenance plan that will ensure your installation will continue to look its best for years to come.

The plan is centrally administered by Tile Doctor in conjunction with you’re your local Tile Doctor and backed up by a direct debit scheme to allow customers to spread the cost over 12 months. 

If this is of interest to you and to find out more about the scheme please talk to your local Tile Doctor about it during the next visit or let us know and we will organise it for you.
