Tile flooring is one of the most beautiful yet durable flooring options for any home or place of business. However, a broken tile can quickly throw off the overall appearance of your floor. If you think that your tile flooring is beyond redemption, you might consider hiring a floor tile removal Vero Beach. In the meantime, here are some of the biggest reasons why your tile floor is cracking.
If the concrete underneath your tile naturally settles and cracks along their control joints, your immaculate-looking tile flooring that’s installed over these areas is eventually going to crack. In order to avoid this, make sure that each tile is installed in such a way that it lines up with these control joints instead of on top of them.
Tile flooring is specially designed to handle heavy items. However, when large appliances such as dishwashers and fridges are being moved and are dropped, the sharp blow to the tiles can result in deep cracks. You can prevent this from happening by hiring a professional to handle your appliances.
The concrete underneath your tile serves as your flooring’s foundation. While it was being poured, it contained a large amount of water in it. Curing is the process that involves letting the concrete sit without disturbing it so that the water evaporates and the material dries out. After this process is done and the concrete slab shrinks because of the absence of water, the builders install the tile flooring. When the tile flooring is installed before the concrete completely dries out, the concrete will eventually sink underneath it, forming a gap between the surface of the concrete and the tile. With the presence of a gap, your tile will crack the moment it shifts or moves.
