STEP 1: Assess __ Begin by inspecting the surface upon which you plan to install the tile. The substrate, or what tile is installed on top of, is just as important as the tile itself. A flexing floor or a wall that is uneven can lead to broken tiles and failed grout.
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.
