Help Residue Problem
Hoping someone can help me with a residue problem. I acid stained my basement floor with Direct colors Malayn tan and coffee brown there was plenty of fizzing. It looked beautiful until after I neutralized and cleaned. I kept scrubbing with a broom until all residue was up and managed to scrub off all the stain in some areas. I called Direct colors and they said that the pores of the concrete probably were not open enough to absorb the concrete even though there was fizzing. They sent me some replacement stain saying that the concrete should now be ready to receive the stain. I restained, neutralized, and cleaned floor. When I do the white glove test there is stain showing. Should I keep scrubbing with water and a broom, should I rent a floor buffer to try to get the residue off? I presume I need the white cloth to come back with absolutely no stain residue in order to seal. If there is residue what type of sealer is better to use? I wanted a glossy wet look.
