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.
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.
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.
For some, the idea or replacing old tile with new sounds time consuming and costly. Don’t worry, there’s a way to change your look without a complete tile replacement! Painting your room tile is possible and can be the change you need to fit your needs. Keep in mind, it may not last as long as a tile replacement, but there are plenty of tile paint options available that have a longer lifespan than your average paint.
