Cleaning porcelain tiles is easy and they are generally an easy tile to maintain, again depending on what type of tile you choose will determine the type of cleaner that is most suitable. Avoiding bleach products is always best when it comes to tiles as this can damage the appearance of some tiles and there are many mild cleaning products on the market that will be more suitable for your porcelain tiles. The polished variety of Tiles probably needs the most care as the glaze on the tile can be damaged if you use harsh cleaning substances. Polished tiles should be swept clear of dirt initially and then a mild cleaning solution can be used and then toweled dry. The same cleaning rules will apply to unpolished tiles and again avoiding bleach or harsh chemicals is a must. Textured porcelain tiles can accumulate more dirt as they have the ability to harbour dust and dirt more easily and more time needs to be taken in sweeping the tile to remove any dirt before applying a cleaning solution.
Many people say that porcelain and ceramic tiles are all the same because a porcelain tile is just an improvised adaptation of a ceramic tile. Both tiles are made from clay and quartz sand materials. Both also undergo the extreme heating process. The only difference is that porcelain tiles are made from more refined and well polished clay materials making it more expensive than any other regular ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are also denser and because of this higher density, they are possibly to absorb less water or moisture that's why they are more durable and are stain-resistant making them the most recommended tiles for bathroom purposes. Still because of this low absorption ability, they do not crack that easily during cold weather circumstances. They can withstand a harsh environment that's why they are very suitable for outdoor purposes.
