How can I prep a floor before laying tile?


Answer by  marygold (109)

First you need to remove the existing flooring. Cover any damaged or uneven floors with plywood. Make sure you scrub all oil and debris from the floor before you tile.

Strip the old flooring. Scoop and sweep up all the scraps. Wear a mask when doing this so you do not inhale any dangerous fibers. Give the room a few days to air out with the room's windows open and the door closed; chemicals are released when prepping a room.

To prevent cracking, tile requires a firm-smooth-sub-floor-surface: reinforced-cement-board, thick-plywood, hard-wood-flooring... You might need to apply a polymer-sealant before applying adhesive & grout depending on what you use.

You must level the ground to correct the irregularities, clean the powder (dust) and soak it for a better grip of the tile, also to wet the tiles before gluing for a better grip It is simple.

The first thing you must do is make sure the floor is clean and free of debris. Next check the levelness of the floor and add subflooring if needed to make it level.

Make sure that you sand the floor and get it smooth. Clean to get all the particles off. Vacumn if necessary. If the floor is not level you will need to level it out.
