ceramic tile installation

Just installed matte finish monotone ceramic tile over poured concrete. What may have caused the surface of the tiles to look stained and mottled? At first I thought the tiles were dirty; that we needed to clean better; but that doesn't change the mottled look Is there anything we can do to remove the stains.

ceramic tile installation

Are these a glazed ceramic or an unglazed quarry tile?

What grout was used?

How about a picture.

Need to know more about the tile and grout than you have provided.

What size are the tiles?
What color are the tiles?
What is the brand name and type of the grout used?
How soon was grout installed after tile installation?
