This design layer is what gives the vinyl floor tiles those beautiful designs and colors and sparkle, making them attractive. It is in VCT again that manufacturers sheath a high-performance \"wear\" layer on top, in order to withstand heavy duty traffic.

You can sweep the tile flooring regularly since dust comes every moment of the day. And dirt can easily stick on to the tile surface especially ceramic tiles with a textured surface. You can also use a vacuum cleaner but be sure it doesn't have any bar or sharp metals that can be the reason of scratches and damage on your tiles. Vacuum cleaners are effective tools to gather dust and dirt in between lines and along edges. You can also just use simple things you have at home to maintain your ceramic tiles. You can just utilize simple detergents with a brush, soft sponge or cloth and also clean dry towels to wipe dry the tile surfaces after the cleaning 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.

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.

They are durable and long lasting - and this is why ceramic tile flooring has been used in kitchens and bathrooms with great success. They are attractive - if you choose the right kind of tiles - and can be found in themes and colors to suit your home. However, ceramic tiles do not make a smooth one-piece flooring that your child's play scooter wheels can roll across safely - or a non-slippery surface that your toddler can learn to take his or her first steps on. Neither are they extremely cost-effective when it comes to flooring your entire house with them. However, if you live in areas where your house might be open to rain - or moisture - then ceramic tiles would be a good idea because they are far better at resisting moisture and temperature changes than any other kind of flooring.

In cleaning ceramic tiles, you must consider using different tools to obtain perfectly shining flooring but you also have to see to it that you are not using tools and chemicals that may scratch or damage your tiles. Never use ammonia based cleaners or strong bleaches because they have harmful chemical contents that may cause the discoloration of your grout. Whenever there are spills, be sure to be fast in cleaning and wiping them put as they may cause tile-staining when left longer.
