Get a leg up on keeping your ceramic floors shiny by vacuuming or dry_mopping them regularly. More than any other "foreign" substance, dust will make your ceramic tile look dull in no time. Damp_mop your ceramic tile at least once a week. Water alone, cool or warm, will keep your ceramic tile looking its shiny best. Mix in just a dab of mild dish soap in your wash bucket if your ceramic feels sticky, greasy or appears to have fallen victim to a dirt stain. Wipe the tile with a damp, non_abrasive sponge to make it shine.
Lay out the tiles: After you've found the center point and squared the room for floor installations (or determined the top line level for walls), lay the tiles out to see how they will appear. Do it dry, before you mix the adhesive or mortar, within each quadrant of the grid.
