There are chemicals available in pool stores to help remove film or light mineral deposits. Once mineral deposits become thick you can use pumice. If that doesn't work or is too difficult you may need a professional. There are several methods they use. The oldest is probably mechanical devices like wire wheels or grinders. They can scratch the surface. Then there are glass bead blasters that use air pressure to blast the deposits off. Beads may cause pitting and dulling of the surface. The latest method (about 5 yrs old) is water pressure used to propel mineral salts at the surface. Since the salts are softer than the tile they never cause damage.
