If you have noticed that there are already tiles in your home that are coming loose, the best thing that you can do about this is to repair is sooner than later as this will enable you to save some amount yourself. 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. 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.
Now, with regards to tile repair, there are quite a number of things that you have to take into account like the need for you to clean them by using a household cleaner. Once you are done cleaning the tiles, the next thing that you should do is to put the special ceramic glue onto the areas that are cracked. 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. 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.
