Tile facts you shouldn’t miss

When you hear the term tile mentioned with regard to flooring, most people either think of ceramic or porcelain, two of the most popular categories. The third category is natural stone, and it consists of materials such as marble, limestone and travertine. While adding an amazing air of elegance to any space in your home, they must be maintained with the utmost care and maintenance. If you choose natural stone, be sure to listen closely to the procedures you must adhere to for the absolute best look and longest life span.

Grout is another important aspect of your tile floors. While it’s true that grout adds a nice accent to your flooring, and can even come in different colors, there’s so much more to it than that. Grout literally locks the flooring squares together and keeps the corners from being easily scratched or chipped. It also does an amazing job of protecting the material used to adhere the flooring to the subfloor, by providing protection against penetration by water. All in all, grout is an amazing product you simply shouldn’t do without when it comes to floors like these.

While it’s true that a broom and mop are really all you need to keep your floors clean, here is another pointer. After you’re finished mopping, go over your floors with a microfiber device and polish them when possible.
