Why Ceramic Tile

ceramic tile

Ceramic Tile might well be the most versatile flooring on the market.

The colors and textures you can find these days in ceramic tile leave you with limitless options. It’s fairly easy to clean and near impossible to stain, and the most waterproof of all flooring types.  When planning your next project and choosing materials, you should keep the use of tile in mind. Ceramic tile can transform a space and give your home a touch of your own style with varying colors and styles such as a wood-look. Besides the visual appeal, tile can provide some important features that other building materials can’t. Those reasons include aiding in improving the air quality of your home, safety from chemicals and fire spreading, and mold resistance.

Tile is Great for Allergies!

One of the benefits of having ceramic tile is the improvements that can be made to your home’s air quality. Believe it or not, the flooring in your home could be emitting things that could affect your air quality like VOC’s or volatile organic compounds. An example of a VOC is formaldehyde, which is a substance that can be found in your flooring or even wall coverings. Using tile in your home eliminates the chance of VOC’s coming along with your new flooring, which makes your flooring safer for you to come in contact with. Ceramic tile is created by firing together naturally occurring materials, which eliminates the use of chemicals or harmful substances, and making it inorganic.

Further improving the air quality, ceramic tile has no hidden surfaces for germs and allergens to get stuck in, as well as pet dander and dust. This means that you can actually breathe easier in a home with ceramic tile.

Fire & Mold Resistant

Another benefit of using tile in your home will decrease the risk of fire spreading in the event of a home fire. Ceramic tile is not flammable or combustible, and it also does not have any chemicals so there will be no dangerous smoke when heated. Not only will ceramic tile stop fires, but the tile can also stop mold and mildew. Since ceramic tile is made of organic materials, it can provide no host for mold or mildew. Tile is inorganic, which is why the mold and mildew have no place for growth or survival.
