Luxury vinyl flooring systems use advanced realistic photographic technologies  to replicate real hardwoods and stones. There are four  layers fused together to produce the final product: a resilient vinyl backing, a vinyl color layer, a photographic film layer, and a urethane or aluminum oxide top layer. The protective top layer  is very important to the durability of the product.

Advantages Of Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

Ceramic tile floor in a modern luxury kitchen

Durability: Porcelain flooring is very durable and  the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for 10 to 20 years and even longer if well maintained.

Water Resistant: Glazed ceramic and porcelain tiles have a non porous layer of liquid glass that sits on top of the tiles making them impervious to water and stain penetration. They are also naturally resistant to the ravages of high humidity conditions. These properties makes them ideal for use in wet environments like bathrooms and kitchens.

Tiles that are not glazed will need to be sealed in order to protect their surface from liquids.

Maintenance: Tile is easy to care for. Dirt and stains rest on the tile surface making then easy to clean. Maintenance consists of wiping, sweeping or vacuuming with a soft brush attachment to keep the tile free of dust and dirt. If a stain does occur use a non toxic cleaner and rub it until its removed.

Color Options: Porcelain tiles allow for a wider range of styles and colors.

Modern manufacturing allows tiles producers to make materials which can be printed in all types of ways. Tile can be printed to reproduce the look of a number of hardwoods and stones.

Pricing: Most tiles costs between $3.50 and $8 a square foot.

Allergies: “Porcelain and ceramic tiles are some of the best choices for allergy prevention. They’re easy to care for and dust accumulation is easy to spot and clean.”

The hard, flat surface of ceramic and porcelain tiles makes them a good choice for those with allergies. Tiles are easy to keep clean because dust mites, pollen and pet hair cannot penetrate their impervious texture. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are highly water resistant. This makes them a good choice for bathrooms and kitchens, where steam and water may cause mold and mildew. Although ceramic and porcelain are well suited for those with allergies, not every type of tile is a great option. Some tile materials, such as natural stone, may be more porous than others. Dirt and dust may snag in the uneven crevices, making these types of flooring less effective.

Preventive maintenance is one of the best ways to keep your carpet clean

May 11, 2016 at 8:45 pm


How to keep your carpet and floors as clean as possible at home or the office to prolong the life of your carpet and flooring:

This post is geared for an office environment but it is just as important in a home with a lot of children or even one with a lot of visitors.

One of the best ways to keep your carpeting and flooring clean is through preventive maintenance.  You need to get a good exterior and entrance mat.  These mats will help keep dirt from reaching your flooring or carpets so that it stays clean. Having mats at entrances is very helpful for dirt containment and reducing the costs of cleaning and maintenance. It is best to have an exterior mat that can be used for scraping heavy debris and an interior mat that can be used to trap smaller particles of dirt.

The strategy of preventative maintenance is as simple as it sounds: You keep your carpet clean by keeping dirt from reaching it. 

The best type of mats have some heavy yarns to scrape and to absorb moisture. You should test the mat by sprinkling ice melter on it and using a standard upright vacuum to remove it. If the debris isn’t removed easily than you need a different mat.  You will need to clean the mat on a regular basis to prevent it from becoming loaded with dirt and debris that will get on your main flooring if it is not removed from the entrance mats.

In addition to the mats, make sure you have a regular cleaning program for all of your flooring.  With carpet make sure you get a quality vacuum cleaner and do regular deep professional cleaning. as well.

Here is a good resource for the type of vacuum cleaner to purchase based on your needs.
