How to I clean the grout on my kitchen floor?


There are many ways to clean stained grout. You could try one of the commercial cleaners sold on the market and scrub it with a brush. You can also try creating your own cleaning solution. This way you will avoid using harsh chemicals in your home, which is always a good thing. You could try making a paste of baking soda and some water and use it to scrub the grout with, or you could spread some baking soda on the grout and then pour some vinegar on it. After about half an hour you should be able to scrub off the dirt easily. In some cases the grout is so dirty, that the only option is to remove it and apply new one. You can check the website attached, the professionals there know a lot about tile cleaning and maintenance.

Tile Installation:- 1st- Sand Mastec used for joints, and screw holes. 2nd- Sweep roome very good and vacuum very well. 3rd- Measure each wall to find the Center Point of the room.(I prefer nailing a board down across one side of the line to keep tiles straight, and butt tiles to the board, and put spacers in between tiles). I use a 1/4" trowel to butter tiles before laying. With using Spacers, buttering tiles, laying tiles.( I prefer using a 2 x 4 and tap tiles across with a rubber Mallet to keep all tiles same heigth). Let One side tiles laid for 24 hours. 4th- Then do the same thing with other side of line.

Finishing Project: Once all the tiles are set, and all spacers removed. Mix up color of Choice unsanded Grout, and follow Manufacturers mixture Specs. Use grout Float and fill Spacing between Tiles. Let dry for 15 minutes. Use bucket of Clean water and Big sponge rinsing frequently removing all Grout from Tiles. Let dry for 30 minutes, and clean tiles again with Clean Water. Let set overnight. Next day, take Clean towel and rub haze off the tiles. Lastly, Seal Tile and grout.

Enjoy your project, and the Satisfaction of doing it yourself. Hope i was some help!!

How to clean glass tile after installation


Follow the steps

1.Rub the grout haze with a dry cheesecloth. Shake out the cheesecloth as you work to remove grout dust.
2.Scrub the glass tile with a nylon bristle brush and warm water if cheesecloth doesn't work. Wipe away the loosened grout haze with a sponge as you work. Avoid using the nylon bristle brush in the grout lines of recent tile installations, as the stiff bristles may loosen or cause damage to the grout.
3.Mix a solution of 1 cup of white vinegar to 1 gallon warm water if haze remains on your tile. Scrub the grout haze with a nylon bristle brush dipped in the solution, wiping away the loosened grout haze as you work. Continued use of vinegar can weaken grout, so only use this method to remove haze and not for regular cleaning of glass tile surfaces.
4.Apply a commercial tile cleaner to the glass tile if the previous methods fail. Scrub the haze gently with a nylon scrubbing pad, letting the cleaner do most of the work. Rinse off the tile cleaner with clean water. Use a tile cleaner that is labeled for use on glass tile.
5.Remove the grout haze with a tile cleaner containing phosphoric acid or sulfamic acid as a final resort. These acids are safe to use on glass tile and are highly effective for removing grout haze. Avoid using phosphoric acid on colored grout, as the acid may cause bleaching or discoloration. Read the labels of these products carefully before using, and follow all manufacturer's safety precautions.

How install the soap dish


There are a couple of designs, one is surface mount and the other is recessed. Surface mount mounts with silicone (hard to imagine it would last) and the other installed similar to a tile, but using grout. The grout install gets a hole cut in the tiles, goop everything up with grout, and goosh it into the wall, clean same as you would when working with grout.

Both designs need support until the adhesive dries.

How do you remove wall tiles


Follow following steps -

1.Decide where to remove the grout
2. Scrape the grout away with a utility knife
3.Try a rotary grinder instead.
4.Remove grout until the spacer lugs are visible.
5.Chisel tiles away from the wall.
6.Break the tile if necessary.


If the tiles are grouted, you will have to clear the grout away first. There are inexpensive tools designed specifically for grout removal. After removing the grout, use a small pry bar or a similar tool to pry the tiles away from the wall. Most likely, though, if the tiles were installed onto drywall, the drywall will be damaged during removal. Fortunately, drywall is relatively easy to replace. Once the drywall surface is ready, new tiles can be attached with tile adhesive or mastic. Regrout and seal the tile around the new tiles. *If the new tiles are natural stone they will be very porous and will need to be sealed and dry BEFORE installation.

My bath tub with jets hums and I can't find an access panel.


The pump is usually at the side/rear of the tub, opposite the drain, the faucets can be mounted anywhere, but usually over the drain. The panel could be tiled, and just grouted in, if it is not exposed, try tapping on it to see if it sounds different in spots. Who knows, it might just fall out. How about behind the back wall?? Closet? Access? There is no electrical parts in there to repair, Pretty sure it is just the motor. and a bunch of pipes glued together and stuck through the tub. Did you fill the tub with water before trying the jets? Just checking. Hope this helps.

Installation of our whirlpool tub


Your sheet rock will go to the top of the lip of the tub and then your tile will overlap this lip. If it isn't done right, your grout will crack if you are tiling.
