Why Choose Tile Flooring

Trust us with your tile floor installation in a variety of spaces without worrying about water, spills, and allergic odors.

Water-Friendly

Most tile flooring has a glazed, protective layer on its surface that makes it resistant to water damage and stain penetration. It is also naturally resistant to humidity, making it an ideal option for very hot or damp areas. That’s why tile is one of the most popular options for bathrooms and kitchens. Tile floors that are porous, like limestone, aren’t as slippery when wet as surfaces made of marble – however, both surfaces do well in moist environments.

Life Cycle

Ceramic and porcelain tile floors are some of the longest-lasting flooring options on the market today. Unlike carpet, vinyl, or laminate flooring which have to be replaced periodically, a quality installation from Stylish Carpets can last a lifetime if maintained with proper care. If any tile does crack due to a severe impact, the replacement process is quick and simple.

Keep Cool

There’s nothing better than the chill of tile floors on a hot, Texas day. Tiles, particularly natural stone tiles, have natural cooling properties that maintain cooler temperatures in the home during those scorching, summer days. Tile flooring repels heat, while carpet retains it – which can make your home feel warmer when it’s hot outside. With tile, you’ll even be able to cut down a bit on your air conditioning bill and save energy expenses!

Tile Flooring Maintenance

Besides their beauty and versatility, tile floors have the advantage of being relatively low maintenance. Ceramics are shaped and fired in a kiln at very high temperatures, which creates a durable and resilient floor surface. Even while easy to maintain, there are some steps to take to ensure a like-new condition.

Everyday Cleaning

One of the most important aspects of cleaning your tile floor is making sure dirt and spills don’t have a chance to get comfortable. Tile can handle most cleaning agents without losing its shine and won’t scratch easily. Though, one of your best cleaning options is simply – water! Just mix a cup of white vinegar with a gallon of water for an effective, odor-eliminating cleanser. For deeper cleaning, microfiber dusters and mops, such as the Swiffer, are also great options.

Grout Cleaning

Being exposed to elements over time, grout can become dingy, discolored, and unappealing. Thankfully, there are plenty of cleaning products without harsh chemicals on the market. Use a soft-bristled brush to loosen the dirt and scrub away stains. A second option is to use a steam cleaner in combination with a scrub brush. The hot water will sanitize your tile while loosening dirt trapped in the grout. Just remember to wear shoes while you steam clean, so you don’t accidentally burn your feet.

Repairs

Over time, damage may occur to a grouted joint or a tile may break. The beauty of tile flooring is that it’s easy to repair compared to laminate or vinyl flooring. No matter the repair, Stylish Carpets can replace the tile and fill the grout lines to ensure it matches the rest of your flooring.
