Performance

Tile will outlast and outperform most other flooring and wall applications. Individual product performance will vary due to its density, sealant or glaze and how porous it is.

Ceramic and porcelain usually have a rating of 1 to 5 for their overall durability and abrasion resistance. Five being the most durable. Check the label to see the rating. Porcelain is denser than ceramic and can many times be used outside in climates where temperatures get below freezing.

Construction

There are many types of tile and stone depending on your needs. There are Glazed Ceramic Tile, Porcelain Tile, Glass Tile, Natural Stone Tile like Travertine, and even Metal Tile. It can be digitally printed to mimic natural stone, fabric, concrete, and wood.

Ceramic is a broad category of clay-based tile. Porcelain is a type of ceramic that produces a denser tile, which makes it more water-resistant and can have greater breaking strength.

Ceramic

Tile is the best choice for cost-effectiveness and to use in areas that won’t regularly be exposed to liquids. Porcelain tile is the best choice for areas that may see more moisture such as the bathroom. Ceramic is easier to cut, while porcelain requires heavier cutting equipment.

Porcelain

Tile can be used in many more applications than glazed ceramic can such as indoor, outdoor, floors, walls, backsplashes, showers and heavy commercial installations. They also come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors.

Care

Taking care of your tile will provide years of optimum performance. While caring for your tile isn’t difficult, each type of tile requires a specific cleaner designed for the tile you have.

Here are tips we recommend for any flooring in your home or business:

  1. Regular Sweeping or Vacuuming: Dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate on the surface, potentially causing scratches. Sweep or vacuum the floors regularly using a soft-bristle broom or a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.

  2. Spot Cleaning: Attend to spills promptly to prevent staining. Use a soft cloth or sponge with a mild vinyl floor cleaner to clean up spills. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals.

  3. Use Entrance Mats: Place doormats at entryways to capture dirt and grit before it reaches the vinyl floor. This can help prevent scratches and extend the life of the flooring.

  4. Furniture Protection: Lift furniture when moving it, rather than dragging it across the floor. Use furniture pads or felt protectors under the legs of chairs, tables, and other heavy pieces to prevent scratches.

  5. Be Careful with Sharp Objects: They can potentially scratch or damage the surface of tile. Take care when moving appliances or heavy furniture.

  6. Use Area Rugs: Place area rugs or mats in high-traffic areas to reduce wear and tear on the vinyl flooring. Make sure the rugs have a non-slip backing to prevent slips and falls.

Always check the manufacturer’s guidelines for your products, as recommendations may vary.

See below for specifics for ceramic and porcelain varieties.

Ceramic

Ceramic tile care is relatively straightforward and vital for preserving its appearance and durability. 

Begin by regularly sweeping or using a vacuum with a soft brush attachment to eliminate loose dirt and debris that can cause surface wear. 

For more thorough cleaning, a mixture of warm water and a pH-neutral ceramic tile cleaner is recommended. Apply it with a soft mop or a gentle scrub brush and avoid abrasive or acidic cleaners that can damage the glaze. Dry the tile completely to prevent water spots and mold. 

Consider applying a ceramic tile sealer for added protection against stains. These practices will ensure your ceramic tile retains its beauty and resilience, particularly in high-traffic areas.

Porcelain

Regular, basic cleaning with warm water and mild soap is sufficient to keep porcelain floors looking good. 

You can also use gentle, everyday multipurpose spray cleaner to remove soap scum, hard water deposits, and mildew. 

Do not use cleaning products that contain acids or ammonia (and other harsh chemicals) as these can damage grout and glazed surfaces of the tile.
