Pros And Cons Of Tile

PROS About Tile

Maintenance – Pros Tile Flooring

The maintenance of tile and grout cleaning is simple and effective in keeping your floors clean. Just a good old fashion mop and cleaning agent and your floors will thank you!

Water Resistance

If installed properly, tile flooring is water resistant. Whether it be a drop or a flood, water will not be absorbed by the tile or the grout that is placed in between them. Tile flooring is also chemical resistant. With most tiles you can use just about any natural cleaner. However, if you have natural stone tile make sure to read the label of the cleaning agent to make sure that it can be used and how to use it. That is to ensure you are not damaging your floor and costing you mountains of dollars to replace.

Durability

Tile can be installed and will last for many of years without requiring replacement. With proper care and maintenance, tile can last a lifetime.
