You should know by now that prolonging the damage will cost you more than what you had expected it to be that is why once you have noticed that there are tiles in your home or in your office that are coming loose, make sure to have it repaired sooner than later. And also, there goes the fact that if you just left the tiles that are coming loose as is, there is a big possibility of it coming off and breaking and you know how dangerous it is to let shards of broken tiles to lie on the floor since people may trip over it and eventually get injured. You may not know it but there are now lots of ways on how to handle or take care of tiles that are coming loose and most of these are much better than others.
As what we have mentioned above, there are lots of ways on how you can handle tiles that are coming loose like pulling them all up and replacing them all. However, there are also issues that will come out from choosing to go for tile replacement such as that it can be pretty expensive and messy and will more likely be time consuming as well. Since the concern that you have is the few tiles that are coming loose, there is no need for you with replacement as you can just opt for a tile repair instead.
And since you feel like choosing tile repair over tile replacement, we want you to be informed about the things that you have to do before you proceed with it like cleaning the tiles first using a household cleaner. Once you are done cleaning the tiles, the next thing that you should do is to put the special ceramic glue onto the areas that are cracked. In order for you to make the tile stick to the floor, what you can do is to use a knife to force it to the floor and that knife as well can also be used to smoothen the area that is damaged. Once you have placed the damaged tile again to the floor, you must not move it from one place to another since you have to let the glue work for twenty four hours.
After the time limit or the twenty four hours have passed by, what you should do next is to sand the dried glue using a sandpaper so that the rough edges or the rough texture will turn smooth and soft. By sanding the dried glue down, you are not only smoothening and softening the texture of the tile but also, you are making the area flat as well. See to it that when you sand the dried glue, you are doing it with light and gentle strokes.
