Ask a tile sales person whether porcelain tiles are stronger and more durable than ceramic tiles and in most cases the answer will be yes. But although porcelain tiles are indeed strong and durable, that answer is essentially incorrect. As I stated above, porcelain tiles ARE ceramic tiles. Porcelain is simply a type of ceramic clay. Porcelain tiles are those which have the lowest absorption rates of all the ceramic tiles available. To be classed as ”porcelain,” a tile cannot absorb more than .5 percent of it's total mass in water. Many porcelain tiles absorb less than that — down to as little as .1 percent. In the industry, these tiles are called ”impervious.” There is no confusion on this matter among installers. We call ourselves ceramic tile setters, not porcelain tile setters. It's just that as it turns out, most of the floor tiles we install nowadays are made from porcelain.
Installation of your floor tiles is often considered to be a costly outlay so it is therefore important you employ an expert and qualified floor cleaner and restorer as it is a specialist fitter. These individuals will have a wealth of individual tile knowledge and will be in a position to use professional cleaning equipment and cleaning solutions to ensure you get the best from your flooring. They will offer information and advice on a cleaning maintenance programme and will be pleased to answer individual queries you may have. There are governing bodies for reputable floor cleaners and restorers. Companies accredited with credentials are monitored to adhere to all regulations and are ensured to keep up to date with best cleaning methods.
