How to Protect Ceramic Tile From Hard Water Stains: Lime, calcium and other mineral in water cause hard water stains on ceramic tile. The minerals are left behind after the water dries and result in streaks or spots. These spots can appear light at first but they eventually become more pronounced as the mineral layer builds up. Once dry, the stains become hard and won't easily wipe from the ceramic tiles. Preventing the stains saves you the effort of a deep cleaning later and keeps the ceramic looking shiny and clean.
Floors__To make your finished ceramic tile surface appear symmetrical (even if it isn't), you need to find the center of the surface first. Then measure in from the sides. Pay special attention to this step if you're tiling a small area, where wide tiles at one edge and narrow ones at the other will make the whole job look out of balance.
