Installing ceramic tiled flooring is a relatively easy job. There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.
Best use of vinyl floor tiles is their use in bathrooms and kitchens. Combination of polyvinyl chloride and a number of plasticizers, they are moisture resistant. At the same time, these tiles are easy to install and inexpensive making them ideal for the home owners and home makers on budget.
Vinyl flooring is good for bathroom and kitchen areas that are normally exposed to high moisture contents. Also these are usually areas containing awkward angle. Sold at most of the home stores as well as hardware stores, vinyl tiles are also available at discount rates. But the reason for which vinyl floor tiles is often preferred is that they can be set on top of any existing floor without removing them.
If you want your ceramic tiles to maintain its shining and glazing look, you can do some extra cleaning. You can use damp mop up on them regularly to eliminate dirt that has stuck up on your tiles. There are also recommended cleaners for ceramic tiles that will allow your flooring to shine and dazzle as brand new.
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.
