Tile


I want to put tile down on a cement basement floor, is there anything I have to do to prep that floor before I begin?

Clean it with muriatic acid, then wash off with clean water

Why not? I would had thought you would want to clean the cement floor before installing the tile. Any dust and dirt will stop the tile from sticking, wont it?

.....and using Muriatic Acid indoors without any experienced and proper equipment will stop the lungs from functioning.
