When you happen to notice that some of the tiles in your property are coming loose and are in need of repair already, it would be best for you to have it fixed the moment you notice its discrepancies that prolonging the damage as this may cause you to go overboard with your budget. In addition to that, it is also not good for you to just left the tiles that are coming loose as it will not only come off and break, its shards may cause you or anyone who will come over to trip and cause them to suffer injuries. Know that there are so many ways on how you can deal with tiles that are coming loose and some of which are a whole lot better than the 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. Yet, even if that is the case already, you should know about the fact that there are issues which may come alongside it like how expensive this kind of project is, and how messy and time consuming it can also be. When the problem that you have only deals with several pieces of tiles that are coming loose, replacement is not necessary to be taken as this can be fixed by tile repair alone.
And since you feel like choosing tile repair over tile replacement, we want you to be informed about the things that you have to do before you proceed with it like cleaning the tiles first using a household cleaner. If you have already cleaned the tiles and make it as spotless as you can, what you should do next is to put the special ceramic glue onto the areas where the cracks are present. In order for you to make the tile stick to the floor, what you can do is to use a knife to force it to the floor and that knife as well can also be used to smoothen the area that is damaged. Once you have placed the damaged tile again to the floor, you must not move it from one place to another since you have to let the glue work for twenty four hours.
After the time limit or the twenty four hours have passed by, what you should do next is to sand the dried glue using a sandpaper so that the rough edges or the rough texture will turn smooth and soft. When you sand the dried glue down, you are not only smoothing the texture of the floor, you are also achieving a flat area as well. See to it that when you sand the dried glue, you are doing it with light and gentle strokes.
