Tiles form an integral part of the home and for the family clean ceramic tile is only in its best interest. Removing ceramic tile is usually a secondary job that includes the application of some tools coupled with physical power. Ceramic tiles generally do not come up easily and their removal process depends on the surface on which they are installed. For instance if they are set in mastic ceramic tiles come up easily with the help of a long-handled floor scraper. But for removing asbestos-laden mastic ceramic tiles you require special equipments and respirators. Certain things have to be taken into consideration when removing ceramic tiles. The surrounding bricks and walls should not be disturbed while removing ceramic tiles.

An additional consideration with flooring tiles is slickness. A glossy glaze on a floor is not recommended. A heavily textured glaze or a matte glaze is best. Outdoor use in cold climates demands high fired tiles and dependable glazes especially if on horizontal surfaces. Low fire and even porous tiles can be used outdoors in cold climates if on or in a vertical surface. But you are still better off with a frost proof tile in cold climates. Finally there is the issue of a ceramic tile being food-safe. Many decorative ceramic art tiles are used as serving trays for a variety of hot and cold foods and it is important that these not leach out chemicals.

Such a cermic tile would not be suitable for certain applications. For example if you intend to use the tile for a backsplash counter top or tabletop you will need a very durable tile that will hold up to frequent cleaning and in the case of a countertop or tabletop some hard use too. Stoneware clays are the most suitable for this sort of use. Stoneware is normally fired to about cone 6 (around 2200 degrees F) and is very strong. But in your inquiry dont stop with what kind of clay the tiles are made from. Glazes vary enormously and even so-called food-safe glazes can leach out chemicals stain and lose their color.
