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. 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.
Pulling the tiles that are coming loose up and replacing them is considered as one of the ways on how you can effectively handle such matter at hand. But then again, the downside of replacing all the tiles that are coming loose is that it is not only expensive, there goes the fact that it can be messy and time consuming as well. Since the concern that you have is the few tiles that are coming loose, there is no need for you with replacement as you can just opt for a tile repair instead.
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. 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. 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.
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. You should not be rough when sanding the dried glue, instead, you have to be quick and be light at the same time.
