Tips to Install Wall Tiles
The construction party will first spread the wall tiles and then spread the floor tiles so that when the paving tiles are used, they will not affect the wall tiles and will not delay the construction period. Paving wall tiles generally start from the side of the sun horns or windows and doors, and proceed from bottom to top and from left to right.
Inside the tile there are a lot of tiny gaps that have some water absorption. If not directly soaked with water or soaking water, tiles will absorb water from the cement, making the gap between the ceramic tile and the cement part void, and the bond is not firm, resulting in empty drums, tiles off and other issues. The kitchen bathroom tiles, the most used is the ceramic tile with water absorption >10%, this tile must be soaked before the paving. Floor tiles have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5%, so no water soaking is required before laying.
Soaked tiles to do: completely soaked in clean water, the time is generally more than 30 minutes, the specific time to tile soaked in water does not take the time to bubble prevail. Tiles that soaked in water cannot be sold twice, and merchants do not accept returns. Therefore, in order to avoid wasting, it is imperative for workers to calculate the amount of water and how much to use.
Cleaning of the wall
The wall should be inspected and cleaned before the tiling. If the wall has cracks, it must be treated first. When laying the wall tiles, the construction team often puts putty on the wall. If the putty is not scraped off, it will be directly tiled. The safety hazard is very large. The cement is so strong that the putty does not hang on the cement, which can easily cause the tiles to fall off.
Make a pre-paving of the tiles before paving. If you wait until you reach a certain level, you will find that the effect of tile bricks is not good and the proportion is inconsistent. If you remove the tiles, it will cause unnecessary waste and waste.
The correct choice of cement marking and mixing ratio of cement sand. Improper mixing ratio of cement sand or excessively high cement number will lead to cracking of ceramic tile, a large proportion of cement, strong adhesion of ceramic tile, and bricks can quickly get stuck, but the mixing ratio of cement is high, and the expansion coefficient of cement mortar is large. It is easy to crack bricks after laying. The proposed ratio is 1:3 for wall tiles, 1:2 for floor tiles, and cement number 32.5 for cement.
When paving the tiles, the excessive adhesive material in the tile joint should be promptly wiped clean, and the stains on the tile should be wiped off with wet cotton cloth. Do not wait until the adhesive material is hard and then wipe and clean. It can not only be cleaned. If you scrape with a hard object, it will damage the glaze. After the adhesive material is solidified, the joint can be brushed with white cement, gypsum plaster or color paste, and the mortar can be evenly wiped and filled with cotton yarn.
