Tile surface sheen

I just installed the tile in 2 bathrooms. I noticed a spot that was dull on a couple of the tiles. I first thought that it was a dribble of something that needed to be cleaned off but upon cleaning the spot it just got larger. Is there a coating on the tile to give it a higher gloss that I am washing off?

Based on your description, the glossy finish is a haze left from the grout. The best way to remove the haze is with a product called Krud Kutter. It is sold at many retailers, but not always with the other cleaning products. I believe it is sometimes sold in the paint section.

Can one use the Krud Cutter BEFORE the 7 days; is it ok to use if you don't get any on the grout?

Yes, you can use Krud-Kutter before the first 7 days to clean the grout haze. In fact, the longer the haze is allowed to stay, the harder it will be to remove.
