Keep Your Tools Ready. The first thing to do is to make sure that the tools you will use are ready at hand. These tools should include basic carpentry tools like an accurate measuring tape, a carpenter’s square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces, a tile cutter, a trowel, and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material, thin set mortar or tile adhesive, the sealant, the grout and a rubber grout float. Also you must make sure that you are wearing work clothes or overalls, glasses and heavy-duty gloves for safety.
Install the Ceramic Tiles. Start with the center and move outwards with each ceramic tile. Use thin set mortar or tile adhesive to set the tiles, make sure that the bond between the tile and the sub-floor sets by applying pressure on each tile. After the tiles have set, complete the process by applying the grout. Remember that the grout must be of the same color as the tiles you have chosen. Remember that each step requires twenty-four hours to set and dry before allowing yourself to proceed to the next step of your ceramic tile flooring installation.
Maintaining tiled floors demands considerable effort and time from cleaning professionals and homemakers. Although tiles are extremely durable and withstand rough use for years, the absence of proper maintenance can easily make tile floors dull and stained. The grout in between the tiles is very absorbent in nature. Exposure to moisture and traffic can easily lead to the accumulation of dirt and grime. The dirt cannot be completely eliminated with scrubbing or washing techniques. Users must be equipped with the best hard tile floor cleaners.
