Which precautions should be followed during tile flooring?

 
Untitled Page
Precautions while laying the floor tiles:
  • Make sure that the floor to be tiled is solid, hard and leveled.
  • Start laying the tile at your markings in the center of the floor. It is important that the first tile is exactly square. If the first tile is laid wrongly, all other tiles will also fall incorrectly.
  • Be sure each tile is pushed tightly against the previous one, leaving no gaps.
  • Do not let tiles to slide from their place. Lay each tile tightly on the cement.
  • Proceed by laying tiles according to your plan towards each wall. This helps to avoid expansion and contraction of the tiles while enhancing the appearance.
  • When it becomes necessary to fit tiles around pipes or other obstructions, simply cut a paper pattern that fits around such obstructions and trace the pattern on the tiles. Then cut and place around obstruction.
  • Do not wash your new tile floor for at least one week after installation.
  • For Cleaning, wipe the tiles regularly with moist cloth or often clean with mild liquid soap or detergent to remove stains.
  • Use doormats and carpets to avoid dust or stains.
