Pulling the tiles that are coming loose up and replacing them is considered as one of the ways on how you can effectively handle such matter at hand. 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. If you have already cleaned the tiles and make it as spotless as you can, what you should do next is to put the special ceramic glue onto the areas where the cracks are present. 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.
Once the glue dried down, in order for you to soften the texture and the feel of the tiles, you should use sandpaper to sand it. You have to continue sanding down the dried glue until you achieve an area that is completely flat. You should not be rough when sanding the dried glue, instead, you have to be quick and be light at the same time.
