Are you going to install ceiling tiles on your ceiling? You have to prepare your ceiling before you start installing the tiles. Clean your ceiling first. Use your broom to clean the very dirty ceiling. Before you clean your ceiling using broom, cover your broom with tee shirt that will remove any dirt. Check for greasy or very dirty ceiling. If it is very greasy, you need to scrub the ceiling with cleaner that’s purposed to clean anything. Take a sponge and use it to scrub your ceiling before installing bathroom ceiling tiles.
Wait for a while before you start tiling your ceiling and let your ceiling completely dry. Why should we clean and dry our ceiling before we install the ceiling tiles? Our ceiling tiles will stick much more effectively on ceiling that has clean surface. Installing tiles on the ceiling that’s dirty can be really tricky. That’s why we need to make sure if the ceiling is completely clean and dry so we won’t feel hard to tile the ceiling.
Now, we must get our room and ceiling measured so we’ll see how many tiles we’ll need to cover the entire ceiling of a room. To measure our room’s square footage, we can use a measuring tape. Use this tape to get the record of the length of the ceiling. Next, we must measure the width of our ceiling. Now, multiply the number of length and width so we’ll get the square footage. As a sample, if the ceiling’s length is twelve feet and the ceiling width is fifteen feet, 180 inches is your ceiling’s square footage. Now, you’re ready to prepare the ceiling tiles.
Preparations to Make before Installing Ceiling Tiles
We understand that you’re curious about how to install ceiling tiles, but it is important to prepare enough tiles before you start tiling the ceiling. How many tiles we will need to cover our ceiling depends on the size of tiles we opt for. For example, if you want ceiling tiles with twenty four inches wide and twenty four inches long or two feet long and two feet length for your ceiling with 180 square footage measurements, you need at least forty five inches.
How do we know we’ll need forty five tiles? First you need to multiply the width and length of the tile so that you’ll get the square footage of the tile. Now, you must divide your ceiling’s square footage with the tile’s square footage. Now, since you already knew the measurement of your ceiling and how many tiles necessary to cover the ceiling, you’re ready to install the ceiling tiles.
