Built from the cornerstone of integrity and a foundation set through teamwork, our tile flooring contractors in Port St. Lucie and Stuart, FL understand that communication between customer and tile setter is critical when laying tiles in a customer’s home. It is important to respect the occupants, their belongings, and the property itself. All Star Carpet and Tiles prides itself on its communication policy, and with that, here are a few simple tile installation procedures and considerations:
Tile Drying Time
Whether you hire All Star Carpet and Tiles, or perform a DIY job, the most crucial tile installation tip is to wait for tiles to dry. Tiling may often look complete, but you must let your new tile floor dry for 12 hours before walking over it.
The minimum drying time may seem like a hassle when you are excited to show off the newest addition to your home, but the when you consider how long it takes for your tile to set, the 12 hours is well worth the potential cost in damages.
As a side note, when a tile backsplash is set on your walls, allow 24 hours for it to dry!
Grout Care and Appearance
A concern often raised by our customers is grout between tiles. Long-term care plays a major role in the appeal and appearance of your tile project.
Grout between tile is known for stains and discoloration. Taking diligent action and keeping up with the cleanliness of grout will save you from having to replace your tiles altogether. Once it reaches a certain point, it is impossible to remove stains from the grout on your tile completely.
DIY Floor Tile Installation and Learning to Set Your Own Tile
Learning to lay tile is certainly possible on your own, and at first glance may even seem simple. However, handing tile requires extreme attention to detail. It is easy to run into problems. If even a single tile is set slightly askew, it can throw off the entire balance of the room. Getting a lot of practice, or assistance from an expert, is absolutely crucial. Harmful problems related to moisture under the tile (such as mold) can often be traced back to the time of installation.
