Know that there are so many ways on how you can deal with tiles that are coming loose and some of which are a whole lot better than the others.
One of the ways on how you can handle tiles that are coming loose is by means of pulling them all up and replacing them. Yet, even if that is the case already, you should know about the fact that there are issues which may come alongside it like how expensive this kind of project is, and how messy and time consuming it can also be. If the problem that you have is that few tiles at home are coming loose, the best thing that you can do is to just fix it instead of replacing all of them.
Once you have decided to opt for tile repair instead of tile replacement, please be reminded that there are few essential things that you need to consider such as the importance of cleaning the tiles first by means of using a household cleaner. After you have cleaned the tiles and make it squeaky, it is now the time for you to put on the specialized ceramic glue onto the areas that have cracks. 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. And of course, you must not move it or do any unnecessary movements that will misplace the damaged tile instead, 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. You should not be rough when sanding the dried glue, instead, you have to be quick and be light at the same time.
