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.
Mop the floor at least once a week with a ceramic tile cleaner, then rinse with clear water. Dry the tile with a towel immediately after mopping. Keep a squeegee in the bathroom for wiping down tub and shower walls after each use. Alternatively, wipe the moisture from the walls with a towel. Wiping down the walls prevents both hard water stains and soap scum buildup.
