After having applied the adhesives, carefully place the tiles one by one on the surface. Equipments such as tile spacers can be used to give adequate space between the tiles. Sometimes, for fixing tiles on the edges cutting may be required. A masonry drill can be used for the cutting purposes. For making curved cuts, micro cutter or wet saw can be used. Before allowing the tiles to settle, they should be leveled using a hammer. When tiles are settled, fill in the gap between the tiles with grout. Seal all grout joint to avoid grout porosity. The final step in ceramic tile installation process is caulking. This is primarily done to prevent water from seeping into bathtub edges or corners of the wall.
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.
