Clean ceramic tile has a longer life expectancy and retains its glossy image until the end. Ceramic tile is used to decorate walls and floors, fireplaces and showers. It is manufactured with naturally-available products including clay and quartz sand. Clay has the property of restricting water flow and is used in the construction of dams, bridges and canals. Ceramic is also used in the preparation of engineering materials such as transistors in electronic devices. There are many varieties of ceramic tiles, and they differ in size, shape, design, pattern and make, and some are even produced specifically for certain rooms, including the bathroom, the kitchen and the living room. However, no matter the type of tile or the use of the tile, it should be taken care of, because clean ceramic tile is a key component in both the beauty of a house and the health of a family.
Though installation of ceramic tile is not a complicated task, it does involve some detailed steps such as preparing tile surface, laying out the wall, applying adhesive or mortar, setting tile, and caulking. Ceramic tile can be installed on any surface such as drywall, plaster, cement block, and even in existing ceramic tile. The surface for the tiles should be flat, smooth, and free of dust and debris. Additionally, if there is any loose paint or crack on the surface, it should be scraped off and patched with some water-proof substance. Laying out the wall is perhaps the most important step in the installation process. It includes determining the level line, planning starting point, and checking whether any irregularity has been caused by fixtures like kitchen cabinets and tubs. The next step is to evenly apply ceramic wall adhesive on the surface using a notch trowel. Pro-mastic and pro-flex platinum are the most commonly used adhesives for ceramic tiles.
You'll need the tile, of course. Your choice of design is entirely your own, but consider how the design will fit in with the rest of the room. Consider, also, the room's function. Kitchen floors are always exposed to food and water drips. Dark ceramic tile flooring would tend to make seeing these drips more difficult when you're mopping the floors. Light, solid colors are most appropriate for kitchen floors, while darker tile with simple patterns go best in bathrooms. Shop around at local hardware and home improvement stores or on the net. If you don't find what you want at your local stores, you're sure to find it on the net. You can get ceramic tiles from any country on the net. You're sure to find the design you have in mind there.
There are a lot of ways to clean your tile flooring with different materials to use. You can sweep the tile flooring regularly since dust comes every moment of the day. And dirt can easily stick on to the tile surface especially ceramic tiles with a textured surface. You can also use a vacuum cleaner but be sure it doesn't have any bar or sharp metals that can be the reason of scratches and damage on your tiles. Vacuum cleaners are effective tools to gather dust and dirt in between lines and along edges. You can also just use simple things you have at home to maintain your ceramic tiles. You can just utilize simple detergents with a brush, soft sponge or cloth and also clean dry towels to wipe dry the tile surfaces after the cleaning process.
