Any cracks or damage must be repaired immediately by repairing the tiles, grouts and sealants.
In the event of damage to the membranes, the tiling must be removed and the membrane repaired by removing the damaged portion and applying as for new work.
Drainage outlets must be maintained to operate effectively, and ceramic or stone tile finishes must be kept clean.
