depends on the place. in the basement with plasti vapour barrier under, could be from 28 days to a year, depending on how wet the croncrete poured was. a year has to do with making sure all drying cracks have completed.

other areas concrete normally takes 28 days to fully cure. a mortar bed of concrete can be tiled in a safe week or 2 days for dry pack mortar bed.
