Maintaining Your Ceramic Tile Flooring. Ceramic tiles are quite easy to maintain. They require very little effort to clean - but a mop and warm water must be used on them regularly to keep them looking fresh and bright. Now and then, a mild detergent solution can be used on your tiled flooring - and a little bit of scrubbing will help remove the odd stain. Your furniture legs should have felt pads on them to avoid scratching the tiles. If tiles are damaged, replace the entire tile with a new one that looks identical to your old tile, using the same process you used to install the tile.
You’ll need the tile, of course. Your choice of design is entirely your own, but consider how the design will fit in with the rest of the room. Consider, also, the room’s function. Kitchen floors are always exposed to food and water drips. Dark ceramic tile flooring would tend to make seeing these drips more difficult when you’re mopping the floors. Light, solid colors are most appropriate for kitchen floors, while darker tile with simple patterns go best in bathrooms. Shop around at local hardware and home improvement stores or on the net. If you don’t find what you want at your local stores, you’re sure to find it on the net. You can get ceramic tiles from any country on the net. You’re sure to find the design you have in mind there.
You next need to consider how you will cut the tiles for corners, edges, or other special situations. Many hardware stores have tile cutters that you can use or rent for a day. Make sure you have proper training for safety purposes. Another consideration is the type of tiles you want to use. Read about the pluses and minuses of each type of material, and bring home samples to see if you like how they look and feel. Think about the size, pattern, and color of the tile(s) you will use. Make sure the tile is easy to maintain and clean and will fit well is the chosen space. With so many options, the hardest part may be narrowing your choices!
Prepare the Sub-Floor for the Tiling Process. After you are ready with your tools and before you begin tile flooring installation, you must first prepare the sub-floor for the ceramic tile flooring installation. This involves cleaning the sub-floor thoroughly and checking it for cracks. If you do find cracks, you must repair them. If any crack is too large to repair, that section of the floor must be replaced completely. If your floors are wooden make sure that they are supported well and are at least two inches thick so that they are able to withstand the weight of the tiles you are about to install on them. Once you have checked for cracks and cleaned all the debris off the sub-floor you are ready to begin with your ceramic tile flooring installation.
