Concrete is generally an inexpensive flooring choice if you are in a first story locations, however, it will need to be treated to make it suitable for a space that is frequently trafficked by animals. This requires the application of an appropriate concrete sealer, on a semi-regular basis, to clog the tiny hidden pores in the face of the floor. This protects the material from liquid penetration and stains, creating a solid clear surface that you can then scour clean as necessary.
A single major advantage of hardwood is that these floors can be refinished when spills, scratches, and scars start to pile up on the wood's surface. With many types of hardwood, you can simply sand down the wood to get a fresh start. This is not possible with ceramic tile—but then again, tile does not wear down the way wood does.
One of the major advantages to choosing hard tile floors for pet populated public areas is that they are very simple to clean. There are few detergents out there that can damage a ceramic tile’s glaze, so you will be able to use heavy duty soaps to disinfect the space. At the same time, the hard surface acts like a shield, holding any unseemly materials in place ready to easily be wiped or mopped up.
The structural strength of a ceramic tile is based on how hot the fires were when it was baked in the kiln. Higher temperatures will result in more durable materials, such as porcelain, and a glaze can help prevent scratches. Natural stone also varies by type of material, with granite and slate being much harder than marble or limestone. However stone can have hidden faults in individual pieces, and some materials may be prone to chipping along the edges and at the corners of the square.
