Finally, there is the issue of a ceramic tile being food-safe. Many decorative ceramic art tiles are used as serving trays for a variety of hot and cold foods and it is important that these not leach out chemicals. Even a glaze said to be food-safe often is not. John Hesselberth and Ron Roy, in their book, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes demonstrate this by placing a lemon wedge on a 'food-safe' glazed piece of ceramics. Within hours the glaze is discolored from leaching out of the chemicals.
Maintaining vitrified tiles and ceramic tiles don't go far off from each other. Both have nearly similar ways of maintenance and cleaning. Both vitrified and ceramic doesn't need any special maintenance ritual after installation. Cleaning both types of tiles is also not so difficult. Both can be cleaned using a damp cloth. However, if the going gets tough, the tough gets rougher. In cases that your tiles are really greasy, you could use strong cleaning chemicals such as detergents and bleach. It is safe to use these chemicals on any type of vitrified tiles or ceramic tiles. The non – porous surface of both tiles makes it impossible for molds and mildew to occur. That is why it is perfect for pools, bathrooms and kitchens.
A ceramic tile can be cleaned with a sponge and detergent. Ceramic tiles have a smooth surface which makes them easy to clean. Day-to-day cleaning can involve a vacuum, since light upkeep throughout the week will result in consistently clean ceramic tile. During installation, tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise, the tile can leak, and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households, and the tiles are also harder to clean, as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly, clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream.
Clean ceramic tile has a longer life expectancy and retains its glossy image until the end. Ceramic tile is used to decorate walls and floors, fireplaces and showers. It is manufactured with naturally-available products including clay and quartz sand. Clay has the property of restricting water flow and is used in the construction of dams, bridges and canals. Ceramic is also used in the preparation of engineering materials such as transistors in electronic devices. There are many varieties of ceramic tiles, and they differ in size, shape, design, pattern and make, and some are even produced specifically for certain rooms, including the bathroom, the kitchen and the living room. However, no matter the type of tile or the use of the tile, it should be taken care of, because clean ceramic tile is a key component in both the beauty of a house and the health of a family.
