Metal, painted metal, glass, and plastic laminate cabinets are best cleaned with a strong alkaline cleaner. You have to purchase this not from your local box store but from a janitorial or house cleaning supply company. Mix up the cleaner according to the directions and apply it using a sponge. Allow it to sit for about two minutes, and then remove the suds, and then rinse the cabinets with a wet cloth followed by a dry cloth.
When choosing the tile you will be using, there are also important things to consider, aside from the color and design. For floor tile bathroom plans, the chemical resistance of the tile should be checked. Some tiles have high tolerance for highly acidic cleaners like muriatic acid, or even highly alkaline cleaners like ammonia. Floor tiles are also sorted by the amount of traffic that is expected to be in that room. The higher traffic there is, the tougher and more costly your tiles will be. Also, when you buy tiles, be sure you purchase an extra 10% of the original number needed, so you are prepared for any cracks or damages that your tiles may incur during installation.
Lay down a few sheets of backer board to dry-fit them in place. Make sure to stagger the joints between backer board sheets so they don’t fall in one direction. Also make sure the joints don’t line up over the plywood sub-floor joints. Be sure to allow a 1/8-inch gap between each backer board sheet.
Some people may think that cleaning bathroom tile problems is difficult. You don’t have to call for a professional to do this job. You can save your money by doing the cleaning by yourself. All you have to do is following these tips.
Drain Cleaner: For light drain cleaning, mix 1/2 cup salt in 4 liters water, heat (but not to a boil) and pour down the drain. For stronger cleaning, pour about 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, then 1/2 cup vinegar. The resulting chemical reaction can break fatty acids down into soap and glycerine, allowing the clog to wash down the drain. After 15 minutes, pour in boiling water to clear residue. Caution: only use this method with metal plumbing. Plastic pipes can melt if excess boiling water is used. Also, do not use this method after trying a commercial drain opener–the vinegar can react with the drain opener to create dangerous fumes.
As you continue to lay the tile problems, separate them using the tile spacers. You can cut the rough edges using the chippers and wet saw. Once you have laid the tiles, give those 24 hours to dry off. Once you are convinced that they are fixed in place, you can start the application of grout.
Vacuum or sweep your tile floor completely. Use your canister vacuum’s narrowest attachment to get into the tight corners. Grit often causes scratches on tile so keeping dirt off is the first and best step to keeping your floor clean.
What’s next? In the end, perhaps you need some extra facilities, heating, tiling, storage, shelves and cupboards. Your new bathroom will look beautiful but it must also be practical!
