Dry Mop For Tile Floors


Dry Mop For Tile Floors - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is extremely durable and also a great investment in your house. Tiles never wear out, and almost will last forever when they are looked after. When you're getting ready to install the tile flooring you will need to get the ceramic or porcelain tiles, cement backer board, tile nippers, sponges, tape measure, knee pads, tile cutter or tile saw, grout, square, rubber float, chalk line, a lot of water, eye protection, thin set, pails, hammer, notched trowel, and nails.

You will need to remove all of the molding and baseboards. Remove, carpeting, or wooden floorings. Clean the subfloor it is free of debris and dust. Make sure the floor is stable and tough. Install cement backer board onto the floor that was stabilized and the backer board in with 2 inches, at each floor joist screw galvanized screws. The old flooring should be disposed of, and such items are not picked up by most trash services.


Work with a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect at the center of the region. Make sure that the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Lay a row of tiles along both lines on the dry floor. Look at how the tiles are arranged; you want as many entire tiles in the center as you possibly can. Until you are happy with the way they are placed, fiddle with all the tile.

Use set to hold your tiles in place. Use a notched trowel. Disperse the thin-set just to as far as it is possible to comfortably reach and place a tile. Install your tiles into the inset using a firm downward pressure. Don't forget to put spacers between the tiles. It's possible for you to harness the tile gently to ensure that it is in place. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed last.
