Porcelain tile flooring is liquid resistant, its density of porcelain making it more so than other more porous types of ceramic. It is also naturally stain resistant, another fine advantage. As with ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles can repel liquids, so staining agents cannot readily penetrate the porcelain material.
The natural water and stain resistance of porcelain tile also makes it an easy material to maintain.Should any spills occur, it can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth. Also, regular sweeping will keep dirt and loose debris off the tile flooring, helping to support any glazed surface protection your tile may have.
If correctly and professionally installed, as well as regularly cared for, porcelain tile can last for decades. Consequently, this minimizes house related costs in the long run, as it cuts down any periodic expense of tile removal and replacement.
