Even a glaze said to be food-safe often is not. John Hesselberth and Ron Roy in their book Mastering Cone 6 Glazes demonstrate this by placing a lemon wedge on a food-safe glazed piece of ceramics. Within hours the glaze is discolored from leaching out of the chemicals. Unfortunately the food-safeness of a glazed or handpainted ceramic tile is difficult to determine unless you can speak with the maker because of the fact that many glazes said to be food-safe are not. Which is one of the great advantages of handmade tiles - the ceramic artist can tell you if it is food-safe.

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.

For removing these elements equipments such as sharp utility knife razor blade and grout saw with wooden or plastic handle can be used. Once the tiles are free of grout and caulk tapping can be done on the tiles to check whether any of the tiles is loose. If a loose tile is located then the rest of the tiles should come off easily. For removing the first tile gently apply a thin putty knife under the edge of the tile. To facilitate the insertion of knife under the tile a hammer can be used to tap the knifes handle. When the knife or blade is halfway beneath the tile it should be exerted gradually.
