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.
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.
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.
The drawbacks of ceramic tile flooring are minimal. Most often cited is the fact that ceramic tile is cold and hard. The coldness can actually be an advantage in very hot climates—which is one reason why it is often found throughout the home in Southwest residences. But tile can be "warmed" and softened by using rugs, or by installing radiant-heat systems below the floor.
