In cleaning ceramic tiles, you must consider using different tools to obtain perfectly shining flooring but you also have to see to it that you are not using tools and chemicals that may scratch or damage your tiles. Never use ammonia based cleaners or strong bleaches because they have harmful chemical contents that may cause the discoloration of your grout. Whenever there are spills, be sure to be fast in cleaning and wiping them put as they may cause tile-staining when left longer. Ceramic tiles are the wisest addition to your home since they offer a unique kind of elegance and beauty but as time goes by, dirt and dusts might make your ceramic tiles unattractive and dreary if you wouldn't do something to preserve that excellent look of your tiles. So if you want to save that stunning look to your floor, start now cleaning ceramic tile floors
The Pros of Ceramic Floor Tiles in the Home. One of the biggest advantages of using ceramic tiles in flooring is that the range and scope of design, pattern, colour, style and overall aesthetic is virtually unlimited. Unique and inspired designs can be easily created allowing for individual tastes to be easily catered for. The tiles also last a considerable amount of time and should not need replacement in a lifetime. Ceramic tiles are also easy to clean and are therefore low maintenance compared to other materials. The durability of the ceramic tile is also a plus, as it can take a high degree of traffic without becoming worn.
Once you have your tile, you can pre-cut tiles that will be placed at the edges of the floor if the tile is too large. This means you should do some measuring first. You can also cut the tile while you're laying it, but then you have to be sure you haven't laid down the mortar until you've made the necessary cuts. Mortar that is only partially dried might not bond with the tile when you set it. You can use a wet ceramic saw or a utility knife to do the cutting. Which you use depends on the thickness of your ceramic tile flooring. To set your ceramic tile flooring, you'll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You'll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner.
Prepare the Sub-Floor for the Tiling Process – After you are ready with your tools and before you begin tile flooring installation, you must first prepare the sub-floor for the ceramic tile flooring installation. This involves cleaning the sub-floor thoroughly and checking it for cracks. If you do find cracks, you must repair them. If any crack is too large to repair, that section of the floor must be replaced completely. If your floors are wooden make sure that they are supported well and are at least two inches thick so that they are able to withstand the weight of the tiles you are about to install on them. Once you have checked for cracks and cleaned all the debris off the sub-floor you are ready to begin with your ceramic tile flooring installation.
