Water on your hard wood floor has caused it to swell and ruin, red wine has destroyed your carpet, and you’re tired of vinyl flooring. If these situations sound all too familiar, then perhaps ceramic tile is your flooring material of choice. Here are a few ways that ceramic tiles can improve the look and value of your home.
Ceramic tiles are simple to clean. They rarely stain easily and have no fiber on them, so shampooing and deep cleanings are a thing of the past. For most stains, you just need to wipe them off and sanitize them and, unlike wood, they don’t require any special cleaners. Read our Tile Stain Removal Chart for instructions on how to clean your tiles and maintain their beauty.
Ceramic tiles are so durable that they’re used on space shuttles to shield them during atmospheric reentry! Extreme durability coupled with their ease of cleaning and you have flooring that’ll last you a long time.
- Easy to Repair
Even though ceramic tiles are durable, that doesn’t mean that they are indestructible. Just like any other ceramic material, dishware for example, they can break. When your tiles do break, however, they are much simpler to fix than a hardwood or carpeted floor. All you need to do is break out the destroyed tile and glue down a replacement. No need for an all-day affair of tearing up the entire floor to fix one board or one bad stain.
