Another way to keep away dusts and dirt on your tiles is to have a walk-off doormat to restrain dirt at entryways of your house. Because of the majority of the dusts are trapped in your mats, only a few will go to your tile floor. If you want your ceramic tiles to maintain its shining and glazing look, you can do some extra cleaning. You can use damp mop up on them regularly to eliminate dirt that has stuck up on your tiles. There are also recommended cleaners for ceramic tiles that will allow your flooring to shine and dazzle as brand new.
If a loose tile is located, then the rest of the tiles should come off easily. For removing the first tile, gently apply a thin putty knife under the edge of the tile. To facilitate the insertion of knife under the tile, a hammer can be used to tap the knife's handle. When the knife or blade is halfway beneath the tile, it should be exerted gradually. Likewise, remove all the ceramic tiles. If done carefully and properly, ceramic tiles can be salvaged to an extent. But, before using removed ceramic tiles again, their back should be cleaned with an adhesive remover.
If the floor you're covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you'll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards. The floor in which you'll install your ceramic tile flooring must be as even as possible. If it's not, you'll have to even it out first. Repair all holes and cracks in the floor and clean it thoroughly prior to beginning work. Once the floor is prepared and dried, you can start laying your ceramic tile flooring. It is best to lay the tile in pre-separated sections. Divide the floor into four sections. You can use grout as a line separator. Then, for each section, use a notched trowel to spread the mortar. Hold the trowel at a 45 degree angle so that it creates notches in the spread. This enables better holding when you set in the tile.
Bathroom – Bathrooms are the most expected place, where people use tiles. Ceramic tiles are best for watery areas, as bathrooms, where water is overly used and spilled. It can be installed for the flooring and walls, both. It is the floor and walls near the bathing area that face hundreds or thousands of water droplets every day. Ceramic tiles show a great water resistant characteristic, and obviate the chances of water leakage due to excess use of water. They provide a shield to walls and floors of bathrooms against water and moisture. Kitchens – Kitchens are the second room in houses, where water is largely used. Considering the qualities of ceramic tiles, a lot of people use them for the flooring of their kitchen. Ceramic backsplashes, above sinks, are also quite popular these days.
