What is Ceramic Tiling
Ceramic floor tile is durable, classic and, best of all, versatile. The selections of shapes, styles and colors that ceramic tile comes in is a large part of its appeal and popularity. Ceramic flooring is a versatile architectural resource that can be employed in a variety of environments without having to worry about the constraints of water, stains, and design.
Ceramic Water Resistance:
Glazed ceramic flooring tiles have a protective layer that rests over the material, making them impervious to water and stain penetration. They are also naturally resistant to the ravages of high humidity conditions. These properties make them ideal for use in moist environments such as bathrooms or kitchens.
Unglazed ceramic tiles will need to be sealed to protect their surface from liquids. The grout lines in between ceramic tiles are also susceptible to moisture and will need to be sealed to make them impervious to water which can otherwise seep down, weakening the installation and causing the growth of mold.
Durable Ceramic Tile:
Ceramic flooring is extremely tough, and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for 10 – 20 years and longer if well maintained. If a single tile does crack due to a severe impact, the process of replacing that tile is relatively simple.
Ceramic tiles have a hard, solid surface, that does not tend to attract dirt, dust, pollen, or other allergens. When these small debris particles do land on a ceramic floor, they stand out against the surface, making it easy to wipe them away with a mop or sponge. This helps to keep the air free of irritating materials that can be harmful to asthma sufferers.
