Advantages of Using Floor Tiles

Ceramic and porcelain flooring is a versatile resource that can be utilised in various architectural environments without worrying about water and stains. Tiles are a great flooring option because of their versatility and longevity, among other distinguishing characteristics.

 

Here are five advantages of using floor tiles for your flooring:

 

Lasting Power and Durability

Both ceramic and porcelain options are extremely tough and are often hard to crack or damage. If installed correctly, they can last 10–20 years if well maintained. If damage does occur, the process of replacing them is relatively easy.

 

Variety of Design Options

The techniques used to manufacture modern tiles allow them to be printed in various ways. They can be arranged in patterns or accented with designs and motifs.

 

It also allows you to replicate the look of other materials, such as hardwoods and natural stones. When creating a layout, you have complete customisation as they can be cut and shaped into triangles, rectangles, and planks.

 

Low Maintenance

Tiled flooring proves to be easy to look after. Liquids, dirt, and stains all rest on the surface, allowing you to clean them up with minimal effort easily. Regular maintenance mainly consists of vacuuming and the occasional mop to keep the floor clean and tidy.

 

In the event of a spillage, you can freely use robust and heavy-duty cleaning products without worrying about damaging them.

 

This proves time and time again to be one of the best-selling points. Soap and water will clean up any spill, and many grouts on the market are 100 per cent stain-resistant.

 

Water Resistance

All glazed ceramic and porcelain flooring has a protective layer that adheres to the material, making them water and stain-resistant. These tiles also come naturally resistant to high humidity, making them perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.

 

However, an unglazed flooring option must be sealed to provide them with the same protection from liquids. This also applies to the grout lines. Otherwise, water can seep down, weakening the installation and causing mould to grow.

 

Allergen Concerns

Because of its complex, solid surface, tiled flooring does not attract pollen, dust, or other allergens. When dust or pollen does land on a ceramic or porcelain floor, it stands out amongst the surface, making clean-up easy and quick. This also helps keep the air clean and free of irritating materials that can harm people with asthma.
