Grout haze on Granite countertop
Had Travertine backsplash installed and installer did not cover granite countertops.
Now, I have grout and grout haze on beautiful and new granite countertops. How do I remove?
First I would call the company or individual who did the travertine backsplash installation to come and clean your granite countertops.
I wouldn't pay them until the granite is cleaned.
If you already paid them, and they are not answering your calls, then it's time for you to clean them.
I would use an acidic cleaner designed for grout haze removal. You can find them online or at a tile shop.
If you can't find a good grout haze remover, find an acid like CLR or dilute some muriatic acid. You can find these at you local hardware store.
Before using your grout haze remover or acid of choice, do a test in an inconspicuous part of your granite to be sure it doesn't etch the granite.
Usually, granite is not acid sensitive, but always do a test to be sure.
Once you've done your test and are confident it will not harm your granite, then clean the grout haze with your grout haze remover or acid.
I would wear gloves and be careful not to touch the travertine, as travertine is sensitive to acids.
I hope this helps.
