Question about Invacare Health & Beauty

1 Answer

I purchased a used Invacare TDX SP. It drives straight on level floors, but I have tile and whenever the front wheels hit the grout between the tiles it moves from side to side hitting walls. It is set at slow speed and still moves side to side.

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.

Ceramic tile installation


To Start a Ceramic Tile Project:
1st: Figure out the Size of the Room-Length x Width. This will give you the suare Footage of the Room, and will Determine the amount of Materials You will need for Preparation of Floor before Tile Installation.

2nd: Pick out the size of Tiles, and the Color you wish to Purchase(Decide if it is a High Traffic Area) Tile Comes in different Grades, and if a High Traffic area, you will need a Higher Grade Tile.

3rd: Materials needed for Preparation- Hardy Backer Board(1/2"-3' x 5'). HardyBoard Screws, Unsanded Mastec, Spacers-Depending on Tile Spacing/size of Tiles, 1' x 4' boards. (Tools Needed- Drill, Chalkline, Measuring tape, 3/16 x 3/16 Trowel, 1/4 x 1/4 trowel).

Installation; )Preparation) 1- Apply a 3/16 x3/16 trowel of Unsanded mastecon floor before laying the Backerboard. Screw the Backer Board to the floor recessing screws. (Never have Backerboard meet with 4 pices meet together, off set each piece of backerboard during Installation). After sweeping the room, use a trowel to fill screw holes with unsanded Mastec. Tape all Joints and fill with un-sanded Mastec.(Let Dry for 24 hours).

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!!

Can plywood be glued to tile floor before laying vinyl planks ??


There are cement based compounds on the market that will allow you to just go over top of your tile floor. Make sure your tile floor is not loose anywhere, clean the floor well and use a patching compound over the existing tiles (this will fill in the grout lines and any uneven areas of the tile). It may take a couple of coats, maybe even 3 to get the floor smooth and level. You should be able to install your vinyl right on top of this and not have the added height of the plywood. If you insist on the plywood you could use a good quality construction adhesive with drilling and installing screws.

How to Grout ceramic tile to shower base


Don't use grout! Instead use silicone caulk that matches your grout color as close as possible. Never grout where tile meets at a 90 degree angle it will crack.

Hi I moved in to a recently renovated home one year ago. The kitchen had new ceramic tiles installed, with sanded grouted filled in the 5/8 inch joints. I sealed the grout after moving in as I was told...


I have a similar problem. My builder used dimensional lumber for the joists. I asked him if thet would be sufficiently stiff for tile floors, and he said yes. Then after the cracks started, I asked him why the cracks, but he said he didn't know why. It's not necessarily the subfloor but the combination of joists, subfloor, and concrete backer boards under the tile. If you can access the joists under the floor, perhaps you can reinforce them with additional joists or stiffeners before regrouting.
As for me, I have done neither so far. Wife has not complained, so I spend my spare time helping people on FixYa. Like you, I fear regrouting will just lead to recracking, and I no longer have access to the joists. :o(

Wrong floor tile adhesive used. Contractor used timber floor adhesive instead of concrete. Some tiles cracking and adhesive not drying?


it depends on what kind of tiles they were. If they were soft tile, then they may crack anyway if the floor is not level, also if he made the floor uneven by using the adhesive they can crack. Many soft tiles are peel and stick and no adhesive is needed. If they were hard stone tiles then he should have been using grout to stick them down and grout the cracks in between as well. It sounds like you need to have someone else come in and re-access the problem as I can't see the whole situation, but it sounds like the tiles may need to come back up. You can either get the same guy to come back and fix his mistake or get some one else to fix it then go after him to messing it up. If you want to choose another person I recommend looking at www.superpages.com.
