In this post this article, we’ll go over all the reasons we believe you should consider using tiles in your next project.

1. They’ll look nice for years

Tiles are (as a rule of thumb) among the longest-lasting flooring product available on the market. As long as they’re properly installed, maintained and properly cared for, they’ll look as beautiful as they did when they were laid down for long time to become. However, another flooring type such as carpet is prone to fade and stain over time. In addition, vinyl is susceptible to tear and scratches which will not only result in the floor needing replacing, but it will also harbour germs.

2. Tiles Are Hypoallergenic

The flat, hard surface of both ceramic and porcelain tiles makes them an ideal option for people suffering from allergies. As opposed to carpet which is an ideal habitat for allergens, dust mites, pollen, and pet hair, which can’t adhere to tile surfaces, making the tiles perfect.

3. Easy To Clean

It’s not that difficult to clean tiles. As opposed to carpets, which are prone to collecting dirt and must be cleaned regularly Tiles don’t require the same amount of time and attention. It’s much easier and less time-consuming to care for than the other flooring types. By simpling cleaning them with mopping once per week, they’ll appear clean (for areas that are not heavily used the weekly mopping might not be necessary).
