2, Wall Tiles Soaked In Water
It is important to note that, before tiling, the base of the wall tile should be fully watered and moist. Otherwise, the moisture in the mortar will be rapidly absorbed by the dry base and tiles and quickly coalesce. This will affect its bonding fastness. Later, it is easy to appear tile off, so wall tile watering and grass-roots watering are very necessary.
3, Clean Up The Base
If there is lime plaster on the wall, latex paint, wallpaper and other decorations, or dirt on the ground, must be cleaned up, otherwise, the cement mortar and the grass-roots level will not appear to be firmly bonded.

The pre-paving may appear due to size, color, texture errors, etc. to adjust and exchange, until the best results, and then according to the paving order, stacked neatly to standby.
When laying tiles, you should choose 1:3 of dry cement mortar. The thickness of mortar should be controlled at about 20mm. Before paving, the back of the tiles should be wet, and the front should be dry. Put the tiles on the cement mortar as required, and tap the tile surface with a rubber hammer until it is dense and flat. In the application of mortar, the tile master will generally apply it very evenly, which is to prevent the emergence of tile bulging.
