You should know by now that prolonging the damage will cost you more than what you had expected it to be that is why once you have noticed that there are tiles in your home or in your office that are coming loose, make sure to have it repaired sooner than later. And also, there goes the fact that if you just left the tiles that are coming loose as is, there is a big possibility of it coming off and breaking and you know how dangerous it is to let shards of broken tiles to lie on the floor since people may trip over it and eventually get injured. You may not know it but there are now lots of ways on how to handle or take care of tiles that are coming loose and most of these are much better than others.
One of the ways on how you can handle tiles that are coming loose is by means of pulling them all up and replacing them. However, there are also issues that will come out from choosing to go for tile replacement such as that it can be pretty expensive and messy and will more likely be time consuming as well. If the problem that you have is that few tiles at home are coming loose, the best thing that you can do is to just fix it instead of replacing all of them.
Once you have decided to opt for tile repair instead of tile replacement, please be reminded that there are few essential things that you need to consider such as the importance of cleaning the tiles first by means of using a household cleaner. After you have cleaned the tiles and make it squeaky, it is now the time for you to put on the specialized ceramic glue onto the areas that have cracks. After placing the special ceramic glue to the damaged area, you can use a knife to force the damaged tile to stick to the floor, not to mention that you can also use it to smoothen the damaged area too. It is very important for you as well to let the glue work for twenty four hours as this way, you can make sure that it really sticks to the floor and won’t be moved.
If you see that the glue has already dried up, the next thing that you should do is to sand them down using sandpaper. By sanding the dried glue down, you are not only smoothening and softening the texture of the tile but also, you are making the area flat as well. You should not be rough when sanding the dried glue, instead, you have to be quick and be light at the same time.
