Battery acid (sulfuric acid) is a very corrosive material and should be treated with care. If the tile is ceramic (like stone), it should be possible to wash it away with hot water (because sulfuric acid dissolves in water). However, if the tile is made of plastic or other non-ceramic material, the chances are that the tile has been corroded by the acid and there is probably no way to get rid of the corrosion.

So you must say what kind of tile you have before an exact answer can be given!
