Simply Build It

There are some tips you can do & repair loose floor tile:
1. Cut the grout around the tile you want to remove and use a chisel or other tool to gently pry it off the floor.
2. Now take either a new tile or, if you’re going to reuse the same tile (in case it’s unbroken), scrape all the adhesive off the tile and the floor beneath it and vacuum any debris.
3. Reapply new adhesive to the new tile and to the floor, set the tile in place, and press it down evenly until it’s level with the surrounding tiles.
4. Grout the area around the tile. After the adhesive has dried (this may take up to 24 hours), your floor should look as good as new!
