ESSENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR NEW TILE.
Prepare the surface: repair, patch, and level any damaged or uneven areas. Make sure your surface is clean, smooth, and dry.
Remove any molding, trim, or appliances that may interfere with tile installation.
When applying adhesive, be sure to only mix enough to use within 30 minutes to prevent overdrying.
Damp-mop your ceramic floor at least once a week, more often for high-traffic areas.
Use of floor mats at entrances and exits traps damage-causing substances. Add a mat to any area that gets pressure from constant standing to reduce wear.
Attach protective pads to all furniture legs, including metal outdoor furniture that sits on tile floors or patios.
