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.
If you prefer porcelain tiles, you should note there is a further substantial difference between glazed and un-glazed porcelain tiles. Those that are glazed are given a coat of liquid glass right before they are placed in the clay oven. This coating means that your tiles will not show any wear and tear, even after lengthy periods of time. Un-glazed porcelain tiles are more exposed, so more at risk of wear and tear, however they do look stunning, thus it is simply a matter of personal taste. Porcelain tiles, much like ceramic tiles, can be coloured, so you have more choice than plain white tiles, which of course look very elegant and stylish also.
