Decorative ceramic tile is used to decorate walls and floors. Walls can be decorated with these tiles in the place of wallpaper. Fireplaces and showers can be decorated with decorated tiles which increase the value of the house. Interior designers are using decorative tiles in their designs, and homeowners are learning to express their beliefs and personalities through the tiles they choose. Most tiles are exposed to dust, and they will fade over time if they are not cleaned regularly, especially those with painted images or designs. It is important to have clean ceramic tile because it keeps the family healthy and happy. In the end, it also saves on money and time, since well-groomed tiles will last longer and will need to be replaced less frequently, saving on cost, labor and annoyance.
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.
