If you have installed these tiles on floors (which are the common trend) it is recommended to use floor steamer with dry vapor output. These are best to clean tiles as well as grouts. This machine quickly melts dust substances and other spots with high temperature output.

With the advancement in technology these steamers are also come along with the vacuuming feature that conventional steamers don’t provide.

    We use various ways to protect grout from contamination and soiling. In general what we are trying to achieve thus is to ensure that the grout remains in its original state and colour, is easily cleaned and allows for robust usage be it in shower walls, wetrooms or kitchen floors.The first system and probably the most widely used system for grout protection is to apply a solvent based penetrating sealer. This will normally not change the appearance of the grout when it has cured fully (normally 24hrs). The idea here is that the grout is penetrated on a molecular level to such an extent that it becomes saturated and will not allow other contaminants to penetrate and thereby stain the grout. There are a huge number of such sealers and grout protectors available in hardware and tile shops, most common amongst them Lithofin or Fila. We tend to use Faber sealers as we find them very high quality and we tend to find less problems and a happier set of customers. It is important to note that if we are trying to protect old grout we must first ensure that the grout is meticulously cleaned and completely dry.The second system for grout protection is the application to the cleaned and dried grout of a surface based, topical sealer. Again we have a huge choice of types and again brands, but pre-eminent amongst those are the acrylic sealers from Buckeye which also seal and protect the tile surface as well. We can also use various of emulsion based waxes and acrylic and water based waxes. These are topical sealers and as such are very very effective in the short term. If you have any queries regarding exactly where and how to use ke nhua lat gach, you can get in touch with us at our site. The downside of this system is that there can be a tendency over time for the topical sealers to wear off with footfall and or improper use of harsh detergents. With the proper maintenance program, using ph neutral detergents and the proper pick up systems to dry the grout joints we can ensure a much longer lifespan of this type of grout sealerAnother grout sealing system which we use in Old 2 New Tiles is to apply an acrylic resin bond to the cleaned and dried grout. This acrylic resind bond or colour seal comes in a variety of colours and is actually formulated to penetrate ke nhua dau cong the old and usually stained grout. Therein it dyes or recolours the grout and at the same time saturates the grout to prevent further soiling or staining and also and most effectively it acts as a topical sealer to leave ke op lat the grout in showers or floors impervious to wine, coffee, tea or false tan stains. This is a very effective and easily applied system and if we ensure to use the best brand available then we can be sure of a very long serving grout protection system.The last system for protecting grout is useful only at the installation stage or if we a re prepared to remove the old or soiled grout as it is grout with stain protection built in. As experienced tile fitters we have found this type of grout to be very effective at reducing the heartache of soiled and stained grout. We recommend Larsens stain resistant grout which comes in a range of colours and is available from good tile shops or by searching online.We hope this has answered briefly some of the questions about grout sealers.

    Heating tile floors is a great way to keep your feet warm on those cold winter mornings. Check out the links to the right if this is not the right information for you. Electric floor heat is the easy and quickest way to warm tile floors. There are many products available that will get the job done. Here is a brief review of electric floor heating systems.1. Wire spool system: This system uses very thin strips, nailed to ¼" or ½" cement tile backer board such as Hardi-backer or cement board. These strips have small hooks sticking up to weave the wire back and forth to cover the desired area. Spacing is usually 2 to 3 inches. The whole system is covered by a thin layer of self leveling concrete and tile is applied.floor heat wire pic Compare Electrical Tile Heat SystemsPros: fully custom to the room. No cold areas. In case you have any kind of issues about where and also how to employ ke nhua dau cong, you are able to contact us on the internet site. Perfectly level floor. Cons: Self leveling concrete takes a day to dry. Some say a thick base of thin set is an alternative to the self leveler.2. Heat mesh: A heat mesh is rolled out on the tile backer and taped down. The tile is applied directly over the mesh with a thick nem nhua dau cong layer of thin set. Use a ½" x½" notched trowel. floor heat mesh pic Compare Electrical Tile Heat SystemsPros: Quick and easy Cons: The mesh may curl up in places making tile setting harder.

    Ceramic, porcelain, marble, granite, terrazzo, etc. these are stones that are widely regarded for their beauty, strength and durability. Mostly available in slab or tile form, they are very popular with homeowners and are becoming a mainstay in many homes. Tile and stone installations can be difficult, but with the right tools and skills, even a beginner can have great results. Installing tile and stone is one of my all-time favorite trades, and I would like to share with you some of the installation techniques that I have used over the years. Let's begin!TOOLS - To install tiles properly you must have the proper tools. So generally you will need:a) measuring tapeb) a marker c) tile nippers d) hammer e) a tile cutter f) notched trowels and a point trowel g) 4 or 5 inch angle grinder h) wet tile saw i) mud mixer blade (for thin-set mortar ) j) Diamond hole saws (for plumbing fixtures ) k) a drill.MATERIALS - Thin-set mortar ( for floors ) hardi-backer or cement board, backer board screws, ceramic tile mastic ( for walls ) and the tiles you will be lop gach sieu toc installing.PREP WORK - Tile and stone is very susceptible to movement. If you are installing tile flooring, rip up the existing flooring down to the sub-floor, or plywood underlayment. Next, reinforce the sub-flooring with 2-inch screws to reduce squeaking and bouncing. Thoroughly clean the floor with a dry-vac and make sure it's flat. If the sub-flooring is rotted, it must be replaced with new plywood of equal thickness, usually "3/4 inch. For Basement and concrete Floors, check the entire floor for level and flatness. If necessary, level up any low spots and grind down high spots. If you are installing wall Tiles, the walls must be thoroughly clean and free of debris. New drywall is recommended, and If you are tiling a tub or shower surround use "1/2 hardi-backer or cement board.FLOOR TILE INSTALLATION - After your sub-floor is prepared, measure and lay out "1/2 backer board to install on top of the plywood. Backer board comes 3ft X 5ft, so plan a layout where the boards are staggered and not lining up in a cross pattern. When your layout is complete, mix some thin-set Mortar and using a U or square notched trowel, spread a coat of thin-set under each board and then set it in place, using mild pressure to get good adhesion. Using backer-board screws, screw it down roughly 6 inches apart and repeat until all the boards are in place and secured with screws. Use the flat end of your trowel to spread thin-set along the seams and embed backer-board tape. Finish by smoothing away any excess. Next, locate the longest wall in the room to use as your starting point. Using the 3-4-5 squaring rule, dry lay and adjust your tiles until you are able to get your cuts to measure no less than half of the tile. Apply flooring spacers to achieve uniform grout joints, and double check your work. When all is ready begin laying your tiles.ALTERNATE METHODS - In lieu of backer board there is a newer underlayment for tile called Schluter-Ditra that is a polyethylene membrane which is set in thin-set and laid on top of the plywood sub-floor, and you can tile directly to it. Due to it's features it is great for concrete sub-floors and basements, but for large Jobs it can get pretty expensive. One of the cheapest methods you can use is to staple 16 gauge wire lath to the sub-floor and then tile directly. However, unless you are strapped for cash, I would recommend either backer-board or the Schluter-Ditra system. DO NOT TILE DIRECTLY TO THE PLYWOOD SUB-FLOOR. The plywood will absorb the water and moisture from the thin-set, and your tiles will come loose.THE 3-4-5 SQUARING RULE - Step one: measure 3 feet from the corner in one direction and make your mark, Step two: measure 4 feet from the corner in the other direction and make your mark, Step three: measure the distance between the marks. If it equals 5 feet, it is square. Start snapping your chalk lines.If your measurement is less than 5 feet, or greater than 5 feet, adjust your marks until it is square.WALL TILE INSTALLATION - The key to a good wall tile installation is to keep all your tiles level and plumb. In shower and tub surrounds, make sure your backer-board is installed ( do not use drywall ) and you can begin. beginning in one corner, mark your tile height, then use a level to level that height all around the surround. Then measure the center wall of the surround and mark the dead center, and plumb this line up to your desired height using a level. Starting at this center line, dry lay your tiles with the grout joints, and make sure all cuts end in the corners ( adjust your lines if necessary. ) When the center wall is uniform, with the end cuts even, begin tiling your rows checking periodically for plumb and level as you work your way up. Make sure that you use the small-teeth V-notch trowel for wall tiles. When the center wall is finished, begin tiling the other walls starting with full tiles and make sure all cuts end in the corners. Use ceramic tile mastic, and when it is fully set you can begin grouting. For walls outside of the shower and tub surrounds it is okay to install on drywall use ceramic tile mastic, in bathrooms it is most likely moisture resistant drywall ( green color. )TIPS ON GROUTING - Generally for floors you use sanded grout, and for walls you use unsanded grout, depending upon the joint size of the tiles and the manufacturer"s recommendations. If you cherished this article so you would like to acquire more info with regards to ke nhua lat gach nicely visit our own web page. Mix your grout with a mud mixer blade in your drill until it is the consistency of peanut butter, and begin floating your grout joints at cach can bang gach 90 degree angles, making sure to fill in each grout line and joint. Certain tiles, like granite and marble, need to be sealed before grouting to prevent staining. check your tiles and take the necessary steps. After grouting, let it set 10 to 20 minutes and begin wiping the grout, use warm water and a grout sponge and Wipe slowly at 90 degree angles, constantly rinsing your sponge to keep it clean. Continue until all the grout has been wiped clean. When the grout has fully cured and dried ( usually 24-48 hrs. ) use a terry cloth or cheese cloth to wipe the " haze " off of the tiles. You can then apply grout sealer.PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! - As you perform more and more tile jobs, either as a professional contractor or a do-it-yourselfer, you will learn and discover more tiling techniques such as diagonal tiling, herringbone designs, etc. and your skills will develop. Tile and stone installation is both rewarding and enjoyable work, and you will find there is no greater satisfaction than a job well done!

    We use various ways to protect grout from contamination and soiling. In general what we are trying to achieve thus is to ensure that the grout remains in its original state and colour, is easily cleaned and allows for robust usage be it in shower walls, wetrooms or kitchen floors.The first system and probably the most widely used system for grout protection is to apply a solvent based penetrating sealer. This will normally not change the appearance of the grout when it has cured fully (normally 24hrs). The idea here is that the grout is penetrated on a molecular level to such an extent that it becomes saturated and will not allow other contaminants to penetrate and thereby stain the grout. There are a huge number of such sealers and grout protectors available in hardware and tile shops, most common amongst them Lithofin or Fila. We tend to use Faber sealers as we find them very high quality and we tend to find less problems and a happier set of customers. It is important to note that if we are trying to protect old grout we must first ensure that the grout is meticulously cleaned and completely dry.The second system for grout protection is the application to the cleaned and dried grout of a surface based, topical sealer. Again we have a huge choice of types and again brands, but pre-eminent amongst those are the acrylic sealers from Buckeye which also seal and protect the tile surface as well. We can also use various of emulsion based waxes and acrylic and water based waxes. These are topical sealers and as such are very very effective in the short term. If you have any queries regarding exactly where and how to use ke nhua lat gach, you can get in touch with us at our site. The downside of this system is that there can be a tendency over time for the topical sealers to wear off with footfall and or improper use of harsh detergents. With the proper maintenance program, using ph neutral detergents and the proper pick up systems to dry the grout joints we can ensure a much longer lifespan of this type of grout sealerAnother grout sealing system which we use in Old 2 New Tiles is to apply an acrylic resin bond to the cleaned and dried grout. This acrylic resind bond or colour seal comes in a variety of colours and is actually formulated to penetrate ke nhua dau cong the old and usually stained grout. Therein it dyes or recolours the grout and at the same time saturates the grout to prevent further soiling or staining and also and most effectively it acts as a topical sealer to leave ke op lat the grout in showers or floors impervious to wine, coffee, tea or false tan stains. This is a very effective and easily applied system and if we ensure to use the best brand available then we can be sure of a very long serving grout protection system.The last system for protecting grout is useful only at the installation stage or if we a re prepared to remove the old or soiled grout as it is grout with stain protection built in. As experienced tile fitters we have found this type of grout to be very effective at reducing the heartache of soiled and stained grout. We recommend Larsens stain resistant grout which comes in a range of colours and is available from good tile shops or by searching online.We hope this has answered briefly some of the questions about grout sealers.

    Ceramic, porcelain, marble, granite, terrazzo, etc. these are stones that are widely regarded for their beauty, strength and durability. Mostly available in slab or tile form, they are very popular with homeowners and are becoming a mainstay in many homes. Tile and stone installations can be difficult, but with the right tools and skills, even a beginner can have great results. Installing tile and stone is one of my all-time favorite trades, and I would like to share with you some of the installation techniques that I have used over the years. Let's begin!TOOLS - To install tiles properly you must have the proper tools. So generally you will need:a) measuring tapeb) a marker c) tile nippers d) hammer e) a tile cutter f) notched trowels and a point trowel g) 4 or 5 inch angle grinder h) wet tile saw i) mud mixer blade (for thin-set mortar ) j) Diamond hole saws (for plumbing fixtures ) k) a drill.MATERIALS - Thin-set mortar ( for floors ) hardi-backer or cement board, backer board screws, ceramic tile mastic ( for walls ) and the tiles you will be lop gach sieu toc installing.PREP WORK - Tile and stone is very susceptible to movement. If you are installing tile flooring, rip up the existing flooring down to the sub-floor, or plywood underlayment. Next, reinforce the sub-flooring with 2-inch screws to reduce squeaking and bouncing. Thoroughly clean the floor with a dry-vac and make sure it's flat. If the sub-flooring is rotted, it must be replaced with new plywood of equal thickness, usually "3/4 inch. For Basement and concrete Floors, check the entire floor for level and flatness. If necessary, level up any low spots and grind down high spots. If you are installing wall Tiles, the walls must be thoroughly clean and free of debris. New drywall is recommended, and If you are tiling a tub or shower surround use "1/2 hardi-backer or cement board.FLOOR TILE INSTALLATION - After your sub-floor is prepared, measure and lay out "1/2 backer board to install on top of the plywood. Backer board comes 3ft X 5ft, so plan a layout where the boards are staggered and not lining up in a cross pattern. When your layout is complete, mix some thin-set Mortar and using a U or square notched trowel, spread a coat of thin-set under each board and then set it in place, using mild pressure to get good adhesion. Using backer-board screws, screw it down roughly 6 inches apart and repeat until all the boards are in place and secured with screws. Use the flat end of your trowel to spread thin-set along the seams and embed backer-board tape. Finish by smoothing away any excess. Next, locate the longest wall in the room to use as your starting point. Using the 3-4-5 squaring rule, dry lay and adjust your tiles until you are able to get your cuts to measure no less than half of the tile. Apply flooring spacers to achieve uniform grout joints, and double check your work. When all is ready begin laying your tiles.ALTERNATE METHODS - In lieu of backer board there is a newer underlayment for tile called Schluter-Ditra that is a polyethylene membrane which is set in thin-set and laid on top of the plywood sub-floor, and you can tile directly to it. Due to it's features it is great for concrete sub-floors and basements, but for large Jobs it can get pretty expensive. One of the cheapest methods you can use is to staple 16 gauge wire lath to the sub-floor and then tile directly. However, unless you are strapped for cash, I would recommend either backer-board or the Schluter-Ditra system. DO NOT TILE DIRECTLY TO THE PLYWOOD SUB-FLOOR. The plywood will absorb the water and moisture from the thin-set, and your tiles will come loose.THE 3-4-5 SQUARING RULE - Step one: measure 3 feet from the corner in one direction and make your mark, Step two: measure 4 feet from the corner in the other direction and make your mark, Step three: measure the distance between the marks. If it equals 5 feet, it is square. Start snapping your chalk lines.If your measurement is less than 5 feet, or greater than 5 feet, adjust your marks until it is square.WALL TILE INSTALLATION - The key to a good wall tile installation is to keep all your tiles level and plumb. In shower and tub surrounds, make sure your backer-board is installed ( do not use drywall ) and you can begin. beginning in one corner, mark your tile height, then use a level to level that height all around the surround. Then measure the center wall of the surround and mark the dead center, and plumb this line up to your desired height using a level. Starting at this center line, dry lay your tiles with the grout joints, and make sure all cuts end in the corners ( adjust your lines if necessary. ) When the center wall is uniform, with the end cuts even, begin tiling your rows checking periodically for plumb and level as you work your way up. Make sure that you use the small-teeth V-notch trowel for wall tiles. When the center wall is finished, begin tiling the other walls starting with full tiles and make sure all cuts end in the corners. Use ceramic tile mastic, and when it is fully set you can begin grouting. For walls outside of the shower and tub surrounds it is okay to install on drywall use ceramic tile mastic, in bathrooms it is most likely moisture resistant drywall ( green color. )TIPS ON GROUTING - Generally for floors you use sanded grout, and for walls you use unsanded grout, depending upon the joint size of the tiles and the manufacturer"s recommendations. If you cherished this article so you would like to acquire more info with regards to ke nhua lat gach nicely visit our own web page. Mix your grout with a mud mixer blade in your drill until it is the consistency of peanut butter, and begin floating your grout joints at cach can bang gach 90 degree angles, making sure to fill in each grout line and joint. Certain tiles, like granite and marble, need to be sealed before grouting to prevent staining. check your tiles and take the necessary steps. After grouting, let it set 10 to 20 minutes and begin wiping the grout, use warm water and a grout sponge and Wipe slowly at 90 degree angles, constantly rinsing your sponge to keep it clean. Continue until all the grout has been wiped clean. When the grout has fully cured and dried ( usually 24-48 hrs. ) use a terry cloth or cheese cloth to wipe the " haze " off of the tiles. You can then apply grout sealer.PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! - As you perform more and more tile jobs, either as a professional contractor or a do-it-yourselfer, you will learn and discover more tiling techniques such as diagonal tiling, herringbone designs, etc. and your skills will develop. Tile and stone installation is both rewarding and enjoyable work, and you will find there is no greater satisfaction than a job well done!

Electric floor heat is the easy and quickest way to warm tile floors. There are many products available that will get the job done. Here is a brief review of electric floor heating systems.1. Wire spool system: This system uses very thin strips, nailed to ¼" or ½" cement tile backer board such as Hardi-backer or cement board. These strips have small hooks sticking up to weave the wire back and forth to cover the desired area. Spacing is usually 2 to 3 inches. The whole system is covered by a thin layer of self leveling concrete and tile is applied.floor heat wire pic Compare Electrical Tile Heat SystemsPros: fully custom to the room. No cold areas. In case you have any kind of issues about where and also how to employ ke nhua dau cong, you are able to contact us on the internet site. Perfectly level floor. Cons: Self leveling concrete takes a day to dry. Some say a thick base of thin set is an alternative to the self leveler.2. Heat mesh: A heat mesh is rolled out on the tile backer and taped down. The tile is applied directly over the mesh with a thick nem nhua dau cong layer of thin set. Use a ½" x½" notched trowel. floor heat mesh pic Compare Electrical Tile Heat SystemsPros: Quick and easy Cons: The mesh may curl up in places making tile setting harder.
