There was a time in the past when porcelain was synonymous with decorative pieces such as vases, chinaware, figurines, and the like. The misconception that porcelain was fragile or delicate was common. However, the many uses of porcelain have grown through time, and it continues to be a valuable material in the dental profession for dental prosthesis and dental veneers. Today, porcelain is a major industrial material used in insulation because porcelain is highly resistant to heat, resistant to abrasion, and is non-porous. That is why porcelain makes excellent floor tiles for both residential and commercial use.
Semi polished porcelain tiles will also need sealing if they are installed in bathrooms and kitchens, they are also available in a wide range of colours and styles. The matte variety of porcelain undergoes fewer processes than the glazed and polished and generally is a tile that will not require any sealing. The polished variety of tile is the tile that will require sealing but it is always best to ask the manufacturer which sealant is better to use for what type of porcelain tiles you have and manufacturers will know exactly which sealant variety is required.
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.
Porcelain tiles are an ideal choice for floor tiles and have been for some years, they are durable, hard wearing and come in a wide range of colours, styles and designs. Porcelain tiles are also extremely easy to maintain and they make great additions to both kitchens and bathroom floors. Porcelain tiles are also reasonably priced and are relatively easy to install, they also come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes which will add a real unique design to both your kitchens and bathrooms. There are different types of porcelain; polished, unglazed and glazed, glazed porcelain is probably the most common and popular porcelain tile. The glazed is non porous and can be of the polished variety but if installed on bathrooms and kitchen floors will almost certainly need sealing to protect it from moisture levels. Glazed porcelain is extremely durable and stain resistant which makes them the most popular tile for the home.
