What is the best method to secure self stick tile?
I bought a house 2 years ago. In 2016 I tiled the bathroom floor using self sticking tiles. I cleaned the floor regularly well made sure it was dust free but the tiles wouldn't stick.
The old floor was a vintage 1980s no-wax sheet vinyl floor. I read somewhere online that you should sand this type of flooring.
I am planning to tear up the tile I put down in 2016 and replace it with a more expensive self stick tile.
I would appreciate any tips about self stick tiling. Should I use an adhesive to secure the tile down better?
The bathroom is only 6 x 9. The area for flooring is 5.5 x 6 ft. The master bathroom is much bigger for some reason. The master bathroom is 9 x 11.
The house was built in 1988.
