A ceramic tile can be cleaned with a sponge and detergent. Ceramic tiles have a smooth surface which makes them easy to clean. Day-to-day cleaning can involve a vacuum, since light upkeep throughout the week will result in consistently clean ceramic tile. During installation, tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise, the tile can leak, and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households, and the tiles are also harder to clean, as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly, clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream.
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.
