Lost sheen on tile

Cleaned my tile & grout yesterday using a low rpm oscillating machine
and a high alkaline product. It cleaned up really nice and removed alot
of dirt from the grout. I noticed however the high spots on the tile had
lost its sheen. I went over the tile with a buffing pad but could not
get the sheen back.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to get the shine
back?

Hi noweare, Welcome!

Can you post a picture?

We have no idea what type of tile you are referring to. Could you also share a first name with us?

I'm not good enough with my digital to show the problem.
I can try to describe it better. Its ceramic tile. The tile high points
are now a non reflective,matte finish, instead of a glossy finish like the rest of the tile.

I think this was due to the bristles on my Tile/Grout brush.

My first name is Joe.

Thanks
Joe

Hi Joe
