Great in any room, tile is easy to care for and comes in many different shapes, colors, and styles. Tile is notoriously easy to care for. However, there are just a few things to keep in mind to ensure it stays looking new for years to come. First off, avoid cleaning your tile for at least 72 hours after installation to allow your tile and grout to dry. Also, make sure that any cleanser you choose is compatible with grout cleaning (neutral pH), and will not stain the grout. Detergent and soap should be used sparingly, as it may dull the surface of the tile over time. Routine cleaners should never contain acids, vinegar, chlorines, or ammonia as these chemicals can damage and discolor the grout or surface of the natural stone or tile.
Glazed ceramic tile
This tile's finish is created with clay particles coated with glass and stained with a colored glaze. You'll know it by the rust-colored back, created when it's fired in a kiln at approximately 2000 degrees F. It's easy on the purse and a wonderful addition to any room.
Made from high-quality raw materials with fewer impurities, look for a white-colored backed tile. For added durability, these tiles are fired in a kiln at a higher temperature, approximately 2200 degrees. This creates an extremely dense and impact-resistant tile with low water absorption. It can be glazed or a colored body tile, where the color goes all the way through the tile).
