The concept of tile flooring has been around for thousands of years. In fact, some of the first known tiles date back to the Egyptian era, and they were very popular in European culture about the 11th century.
Some of the reasons it became popular and remains so to this day, are that they are durable, easy to maintain, stain and odor resistant and have a long life span. The benefits are actually quite far reaching. Here's what Jacksonville residents should know:
Tile flooring is water resistant and as such, can keep moisture from accumulating. This makes it great flooring choice for areas of the home that are prone to having water on the floor. The bathroom, kitchen and mudroom are examples of rooms that do well with tile.
Mold can be a big problem in areas that often get wet. Tile is also mold resistant, which is not only good for keeping floors looking their best, but also for your family’s health.
Resistance to fire is another reason that tile is so popular. You won’t have to worry if something hot is dropped on them, as they will not catch fire. Furthermore, they do not emit any fumes that might be toxic in nature.
Lots of Versatility
You can choose from a vast array of colors and sizes, textures, styles and shapes when it comes to tile. This means that you will be able to find the perfect tile to match any decorating scheme or furniture combination. Whether you have an elegant vintage bedroom suite, or a funky new modern kitchen ensemble, tile will complement both with the same grace and style.
Easy To Clean
Nothing is quite as easy to clean as tile flooring. Considering its resistance to water as well as stains, a simple sweeping followed by a damp mop is usually all it takes to keep this floor clean.
The hardest part about cleaning tile is the grout. For this, you will need to pick up specialty cleaners from time to time.
