There are many benefits to tile floorings, some of which may persuade you to swap out your old flooring for some new and stylish tile! In this blog, we are going to take a look at some of the benefits of tile and why this flooring type may be perfect for your home. Read on to learn more about tile and how it could add to your home.
Tile is a hard flooring type and is extremely durable. It does not show a lot of wear and tear and can go years without showing any signs of aging. It is hard to say the same about carpet and even hardwood flooring. Due to its durability, this flooring type is great for those with dogs, children, and a lot of foot traffic. It is a great flooring choice in the kitchen because if heavy pots and pans are dropped on it, it won’t show dents or scratches. If a tile does crack or chip, the individual tile can be replaced, making repairs simple and allowing your floors to look as good as new in no time! Other flooring types need to be completely replaced if they become damaged.
Easy to Clean
Tile is easy to clean and keep looking nice. Simply sweeping and mopping can help it look brand new. Other flooring types, like carpet, can be miserable to try and keep clean, especially with pets and kids. Tile is also very water resistant and won’t become damaged when water sits on it for too long. Although hardwood floors are aesthetically pleasing and add a certain warmth to your home, water is their enemy and could ruin your beautiful hardwood floors. That is why tile is the better option for areas that see a lot of water, like mud rooms, bathrooms, and maybe even kitchens.

Ceramic and porcelain tile are extremely environmentally friendly. If you are transforming your home to make it more “green” this could be the best flooring choice for you. One thing that makes tile environmentally friendly is that it is long lasting and can last a lifetime, especially if properly cared for. Most of the tile factories up and running today are what is known as “closed loop.” This means that they reuse all of the water and material needed to make tiles, minimizing their amount of scraps and waste.
While it may seem strange that tiles can create a healthier home, let us just give you the facts. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are responsible for a variety of healthy problems. These compounds are released into the air can be linked to “sick building syndrome.” Tile, unlike most other flooring types, contains zero VOCs, since that are fired in a kiln at high temperatures. There are other flooring types that can contain low amount of VOCs, but none of them can contain zero, like tile. Tile is also a great flooring choice if you are looking for something hypoallergenic. Dust mites, mold, bacteria, and germs cannot thrive on tile, which is why it is great for homes where a person with asthma lives. Plus, like other flooring types besides carpet, tile allows for less dog hair, dust, and dirt to be trapped in the fibers, making it easier to keep the air clean and everyone breathing easy.
