Tile is a great choice for homeowners who are looking to be eco-friendly. Though certain types of tile come from renewable resources, you should always be aware of where you’re sourcing the product from. Naturally, recycled glass is a common option for homeowners going green. Stone tile, such as slate, is also an eco-friendly choice.
With glazed ceramic, you can use virtually any cleaning agent that you want to completely sanitize the area. With harsher chemicals, you should be careful not to degrade the grout lines too much. You also want to make sure the space being cleaned is well ventilated, and follow all manufacturers instructions in the application of any cleanser.
Ceramic tiles are made primarily from red or white clay mixed with various minerals and water. This composition is then processed with heat to create the solidified product. Since ceramic material is porous, the top surface is usually sealed with a glaze. The glazed surface is referred to as the design layer since it determines the tile’s finished color, design and texture. In other words, ceramic tiles only have the design or color that you see on the top layer, not all the way through the tile.
Vinyl is a relatively new surface covering, which has only been developed into flooring in the past few decades. It is a man-made material, similar to plastic, with many of the same resilient and resistant properties. This makes it proof against almost all staining agents and makes the surface relatively easy to wipe clean of spills and splashes. Vinyl is also a tough flooring material that doesn’t easily rip, tear, or scratch.
