Ceramic tile materials come from a natural source. Clay and minerals are used to create the basic foundation of each tile. Glazes are added to seal the pores that appear in the clay. Glazes also add colors and can be used to create designs. Some tiles are matte, or low shine. Others can have a high shine gloss added. Once the glaze is applied, the tile is sent through a kiln. A kiln is a high heat oven made to harden ceramics. The tile can be fired and more glaze can be added until the desired effect is achieved. The final result is a solid, smooth floor covering that can be placed in almost any area of the home.
Installation of ceramic tile doesn’t involve many steps. Some other flooring types need additional services before they are able to be installed. For example, hardwood needs finishing, sealing, and protecting it from moisture. Carpets may need to be treated to get rid of odd odors or prevent stains. Ceramic tile can simply be unpacked from the box and set in place. The plaster used to attach the tiles to the subfloor dries pretty quickly. The arrangement of the tiles is usually a grid that starts at the center and works outward. The overall wait time for a ceramic tile installation is short compared to other floor types.
Maintenance is easy as well. There are many floor types that can be damaged by normal household messes. Food stains and odors, spills, scratches, and bleached colors are all concerns that homeowners face. It can be an even bigger challenge to keep floors clean in a home with kids and pets. Ceramic tile can handle moisture with ease, including wet spills that might ruin hardwood or carpet. It does not hold in odors or stains. Pollen, mildew, and mold can cause health problems in rotting or soaked floors. Ceramic does not house these pollutants and is easy to sterilize for a healthy home. A broom and a mop with a mild cleaner are enough to keep ceramic tile clean and beautiful.
Ceramic tile is the type of floor that you can install and then “forget” about. It needs very little long term maintenance and is quick to install. It looks beautiful and can handle many wear factors. It is affordable and offered locally. There are more reasons to choose ceramic tile for your home than ever!
