Knowing the kind of subfloor youll be installing ceramic tile flooring over is important. There are three main types of subfloors you might encounter: Vinyl plywood and concrete floors. Installing ceramic tile flooring directly to your vinyl or linoleum subfloor surfaces is greatly discouraged. One it may contain asbestos fibers; and two vinyl flooring is not a solid as good ol concrete flooring. When installing ceramic tile on vinyl experts would recommend rough-sanding or scarifying the vinyl floor surface first so your tiling mortar has good grip to set on.

During installation tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise the tile can leak and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households and the tiles are also harder to clean as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream. Clean ceramic tile is also safer tile. Not only does cleaning help to extend the life and quality of tiles it can help to extend the life of the family.

Furthermore during the removal process gloves and safety glasses should be used to protect your hands and eyes. If working in a bathroom or shower area it is preferable to cover the tub with an old blanket or a piece of carpet in order to protect it from scratches. Electric clipping hammers and chisels are some of the common tools employed for removing ceramic tiles. The first step in the removal of ceramic tile is to take out the trim covering the edges of the tiles. Next scrape out the grout found on the perimeter of the tiles. Caulking on the vertical corners should also be properly scraped out.
