How to fix creaky and loose floor tiles
Are you ready to fix your creaky and loose floor tiles using Fix-A-Floor? It’s easier than you think. Follow these steps:
To open the tube:
- Remove the cap from the tip.
- Unscrew the tip from the tube.
- Use a masonry drill bit to create an opening at the top of the threaded tube nub or cut the plastic tip carefully with a stanley knife
Cut the customisable plastic tip to size:
- Trim the tip to fit your grout width
- For smaller grout widths, carefully poke a hole through the tip or carefully cut the end of the tip with scissors
- Screw the tip back onto the tube.
TOP TIP: For super small grout-widths, carefully poke a hole with awl through end of tip to clear if not cutting.
Screw the tip back onto the tube. Keep tube upright until ready to use; place finger over tip when moving from hole to hole to avoid spillage.
How to Fix Creaky/Loose/Hollow Tile, Stone & Marble Floors:
- Locate loose or hollow areas by tapping with a wooden dowel or fingers.
- Drill 2-4 holes on each side of the tile using a masonry drill bit.
- Vacuum over each hole to remove debris and dust or clean with a dustpan and brush.
- Insert Fix-A-Floor tube into a 10:1 thrust ratio caulking gun and place the tip into one of the drilled holes.
- Fill holes as needed, ensuring adhesive flows consistently. For best results take your time, apply slow gentle pressure on the caulking gun and allow for the adhesive to exit from the tip.
- Once the area has been filled, wipe away any excess adhesive that spills out.
- Allow adhesive to cure for a minimum of 24 hours.
- Fill the drilled holes with matching grout, blending it with the existing grout.
Always remember, when allowing the adhesive to cure for the 24-hour period, place some sort of weight on the area that is being fixed, this will assist in creating a strong bond between the tile and substrate. This can simply be partially filled buckets filled with water.
Our top tips
- For underfloor heated areas simply mark your drill bit to the depth of the tile using any kind of masking tape as guidance.
- You can collect the dust which can be reused to fill the pilot holes to save time mixing up a batch of grout to match.
- For best results, go nice and slowly – whilst Fix-A-Floor is extremely low viscosity – easy, slow, gentle pressure on the caulking gun allows for the adhesive to exit from the small 2mm tip in a consistent manner. If you apply too much pressure it may result in adhesive coming out of the rear, so take your time.
