Cleaning And Measuring A Wall

A cleaning agent can be made by adding a few drops of mild detergent to a spray bottle. The rest of the bottle will need to be filled with water. The contents of the bottle should be applied to the portion of the wall that will have a backsplash added to it and surface dirt removed with a scrubbing pad. Afterward, the surface should be dried with a lint-free towel. Measuring and marking the section of the wall that will be covered will make it possible to determine how many tiles will need to be purchased.

Applying Tiles

Tile adhesive should be applied to the back of each tile with a putty knife. Tiles need to be lined up as evenly as possible. Once each one has been pressed against a wall, plenty of time needs to pass in order for the adhesive to dry. Once this occurs, sand grout should be applied between tiles with a trowel. Grout will prevent dirt from becoming lodged between tiles. If too much grout is applied to any of the joints, a damp sponge can be used to eliminate it. A backsplash can be maintained in the future with soapy water and a damp sponge.

Soft cloths should be used to dry ceramic and abrasive materials should not be applied to tiles to prevent them from becoming damaged.
