Tile flooring is very easy upkeep. In most cases all you simply do for clean up is, mop it. In today’s choices, you will no longer have to wax the tiles to keep them shiny. The newer tiles have a protective shiny coat to them already so there is no need for waxing. You can get tile choices to match just about any decor look you are after. You can find marble looking tiles with agate inlay added to them or you can find a rock look tile or brick look tile that looks authentic. Tile flooring has come a long way, and you will find that the tiles come in many different sizes. You can get smaller looking tiles to larger ten to twelve inch tiles or even larger if you like. You can special order just about any tile flooring to be cut the size you would like if it doesn’t already come in the cut size you would like.
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. Do not spread too much mortar at once. If the mortar dries before you can set the tile, you’ll have the additional problem of removing it. When you set the tile, only a light pressure is required. Depending on the thickness of your tile, you’ll have to press it into the mortar a short distance. Make sure that each tile is even with the next. Mortar will come up over the sides of the tile, but this can easily be wiped away. Avoid resting hands or arms on the tile you’ve set. It’s going to take a couple of hours before the mortar is completely dry. Grout the ceramic tile flooring, and wipe off any grout that gets on the tile.
