Ceramic tiles are a highly popular flooring material, widely used for their durability, resilience and ease of maintenance. With just a little effort in ceramic tile cleaning and maintenance, a ceramic tile floor can last for years. Regular professional maintains and cleaning will keep it l looking like new.
Why are tile floors so popular?
Terrazzo flooring has been used for 1500 years. Its long and rich history in many parts of the world is proof of its versatility and durability. The terrazzo flooring most commonly used by installers nowadays is thinset terrazzo. Thinset terrazzo consists of a mix of epoxy resin and colored chips, which coats the slab with a fine layer 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch thick. The average cost of terrazzo flooring is $7-10 per square foot.
Terrazzo floors are also eco friendly, and can use 100% recycled glass aggregate, which means that the flooring might be made of up to 75% recycled material, measured by volume. Terrazzo floors last for a long time, and are easy to maintain. They can be cleaned using the same methods used for ceramic tile cleaning, and no harsh chemicals are needed. Another popular material for tile flooring is travertine.
What is the best way to clean tile floors?
One of the reasons for the popularity of tile floors is that tile cleaning is a simple matter if done regularly. A routine cleaning with hot water and a mop takes care of any spills and dirt. It’s a good idea to clean up spills and messes as they happen, without giving the dirt a chance to find its way into the grout lining the tiles.
If your ceramic floor has cracked or missing tiles, you may need to call in a professional service for tile restoration and cleaning. Tile floor restoration uses deep cleaning steam to get the dirt out from tiles and grout, and leaves your floor looking like new.
