Easy to maintain:

A huge benefit of adding porcelain tiles is their durability and ease of cleaning. There is very little maintenance required to retain their appeal and no need for waxing, polishing or sealing. For maintenance care, warm water normally does the trick saving you the time, money and need for chemicals to still provide you with the best results.

Resistant to stains:

Have you ever struggled to remove stubborn stains from your floor? Be it a carpet or a natural stone, stains can degrade the overall appearance of your space. Some natural stones even require sealing on a constant basis to prevent water from leaving behind a mark. Porcelain tiles are impervious and it is difficult for any type of liquid to penetrate through the surface. This ensures that your tiles retain their impeccable finishing.

Resistant to rot:

Laminates and real wood floor have the tendency to swell and rot when exposed to moisture. In contrast, porcelain tiles are virtually impervious to water. Sealants are not required as the tiles do not suffer any damage due to water. The fact that the tiles are water-resistant makes it the perfect choice for rooms that have a higher probability of spills or humidity.

Moreover, if you are planning to go for underfloor heating, porcelain tiles are the most appropriate. With their ability to efficiently retain heat, porcelain tiles can be conveniently paired with underfloor heating systems.

Hardwearing:

Porcelain tiles are highly-valued for their durability and are believed to be amongst the strongest flooring option. Strong and dense, porcelain tiles do not chip or crack easily. The surface is not damaged and this makes them the ideal cover for high-traffic areas. Be it a home, shop, office or bar, porcelain tiles do not need to be replaced for quite some time. They are widely used in industrial areas with its ability to withstand high-traffic.
