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.
For plywood subfloors, be sure that the wood is at least 1 and 1/8 inches thick and is supported by an equally strong underlayment. Otherwise, your ceramic tiles will dislodge easily, or worse, break and need replacing. Concrete floors are the most ideal subfloor surface to work with. But before you can start installing ceramic tile flooring over it, it must be cleaned thoroughly. For dust and other debris, sweep and then mop your concrete subfloor surface, and allow it to dry completely. Smooth concrete surfaces must be rough sanded just like vinyl floors to allow the tiling mortar some grip. You can begin window-shopping and canvassing for ceramic tiles once you have the space or area estimated. Ceramic floor tiles come in a variety of prices, shapes, textures and styles. Pick a tile type that's within your price range and ask to see it in what a palette of colors. The most common ceramic tile size is one square foot. But ceramic tiles may come in a wide array of sizes; from one inch, to two feet.
