Need help lifting "dark stains" (photo included)

Hey,


I was wondering if anyone on here could maybe help me out, I'm trying to get rid of what I believe to be really dirty "water stain marks"(could be something else) that are set, it appears they appeared sometime before I took over cleaning the place and they are in spots where water tends to sit when it rains. have tried bleach, Vinegar + Baking Soda , Grout cleaner, mold cleaner, CLR , stone cleaner (all with scrubbing) , alkaline with literally minor to no impact at all.

You can use a professional strength brick and tile cleaner.You can get the proper cleaner from a flooring store that sells tile and carpets.

A professional flooring store, not Home Depot or Lowe's.

The brick and tile cleaner (follow the instructions on the bottle) will clean the tile as well as they can possibly be cleaned.

So anything left behind after the tile cleaner is just going to stay behind so don't waste your time worrying about it.

I've cleaned ALOT of tile!

This looks more like mould to me, try with a mould cleaner.
