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.
The kind of ornamentation of the ceramic tile is important too. For a ceramic countertop or tabletop, the tiles should be flat. For a backsplash the tiles can have low relief but high relief will be difficult to clean and is not generally advised. Fireplaces, murals, mosaics and facades can be either flat, have low relief or high relief and low fire glazes are OK in these applications. Be careful though with areas that will get much use, such as around a fireplace where logs will be placed or fireplace tools will be used. Low fire tiles and glazes can crack or chip much more easily than stoneware and high fire glazes. Also, if it is an area that will require frequent cleaning, high relief may prove troublesome.
