Is tile flooring right for my home?
Besides being gorgeous to look at, there are hidden benefits to tile as well.
If you are looking for flooring for a lifetime, tile may very well be your next option. Compared to other flooring types, ceramic tile is on top of the list in durability and resiliency. But there are other benefits and features to tile that are secondary to the visual appeal.
Air Quality – If you are concerned about interior air quality, tile is fired in immensely high temperatures during production – therefore removing all volatile organic compounds that can otherwise be released into the air we breath.
Hypoallergenic – If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies that are exasperated by exposure to mold, bacteria, germs, or dust mites, then it will be helpful to know that tile is uninhabitable to these little critters.
Chemical Free Cleaning – Because tile only requires warm water for cleaning, you can say goodbye to chemicals typically used for other types of flooring.
Low Environmental Impact – Tile factories send very little waste water to treatment facilities and even less to local landfills due to the reusing of water and materials.
