Types of Tile and Caring for Tile Floors: 

Ceramic Tiles
Tile is a general term for three basic types

  • Ceramic Tiles
  • Porcelain Tiles
  • Natural Stone Tiles

Caring for Glazed Ceramic Tile:
Glazed ceramic tile requires less floor care than most of the other flooring types. However, there are things you need to do to maintain the beauty of your ceramic tile floor.

  • Wash the floor regularly to remove any dirt or grit. Use a mild, diluted detergent solution.
  • Sweep, or vacuum your glazed tile regularly.
  • Ammonia based cleaners may discolor some types of colored grout.
  • After washing with a mild detergent you should thoroughly rinse the floor with clean, warm water.
  • The glazed ceramic finish should never be waxed.
  • Liquids spills may be wiped up with an all-purpose cleaner, such as Fantastic or Top Job. This will also help the grout joints from becoming discolored from spilled liquids.
  • Non-epoxy grout joints should be treated with a silicone grout sealer twice a year to help preserve the grout color and to prevent discoloration from spilled liquids.

Blue Ceramic TileCeramic Tile : Ceramic tile is a natural product made up of clay, minerals and water. Ceramic tile comes in two forms – glazed and unglazed.

  • Glazed Tile : Glazed ceramic tile is a popular choice for your interior floors and walls and offers unlimited decorating possibilities. The glazed tiles have a special ceramic coating that is applied to the body of the tile which gives the tile its color and finish.

  • Unglazed Tile : There is no glazing or any other coating applied to the tile. The color is the same on the face of the tile as it is on the back resulting in very durable tiles that do not show the effects of heavy traffic. The most common unglazed tiles are the red quarry tiles or the granite looking porcelain ceramic tiles used in heavy commercial areas.

Porcelain Tile : They are denser and less porous than ceramic tile and highly resistant to moisture, stains, bacteria, odors and even harsh cleaners. For homeowners, porcelain tile is especially resistant to staining, scratches, fading and is available in both polished and matte finishes. Porcelain tiles also come in a wide variety of sizes, colors and textures.

Porcelain tiles come in either a glazed porcelain or a

through-body porcelain tile. Ceramic Tile Stone

  • Through-body porcelain tiles have the same colorsall the way through so if they get chipped or scratched the color will not change. Glazed porcelain tiles are similar to glazed ceramic tile. They have a design layer (glaze) on top of the tile body that is a different color and will be noticeable if chipped.

  • Natural Stone Tiles : These are products cut from solid stone blocks from stone quarries around the world. For this reason no two pieces are exactly the same. They are normally cut in 12”x 12” squares, however other sizes are available. Natural stone offers magnificent potential for use on floors or walls that will remain durable and aesthetically pleasing for a lifetime.
