Working Clean and Being Tidy While Installing Tile
The biggest issue with new thin set users is the inherent mess. For example, thin set on your clothes, on your tools and all over your work area. As a result, this makes for an unnecessarily chaotic install.
However, there is a simple fix for working clean on your tile job and all it takes is a bit of discipline. This simple task performed every 30 minutes will help to keep your work area, your tools, and your clothes much cleaner. Additionally, it will also help you be more aware of your surroundings by developing a very practical habit.
My stance is that working in a mess has a compounding effect and will show through in your finished tile work. Consequently, if you look at any true professional installer, a guy that takes pride in his work, I’ll bet he keeps a generally organized, neat job site. Therefore, if professionals are striving to be working clean, you should too, in hopes of having a professional looking finished project.
So watch the video below and, on your next tile project, be conscious of the cleanliness of your jobsite. It is sure to reflect on the quality of your finished project.
