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.

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.

For plywood subfloors be sure that the wood is at least 1 and 1/8 inches thick and is supported by an equally strong underlayment. Otherwise your ceramic tiles will dislodge easily or worse break and need replacing. Concrete floors are the most ideal subfloor surface to work with. But before you can start installing ceramic tile flooring over it it must be cleaned thoroughly. For dust and other debris sweep and then mop your concrete subfloor surface and allow it to dry completely. Smooth concrete surfaces must be rough sanded just like vinyl floors to allow the tiling mortar some grip.
