Ceramic Tile Flooring is a great choice for homes, offices, or commercial buildings. Ceramic tile is one of the easiest tiles to maintain can offer great long-lasting benefits for your business. There are many advantages to choosing certain flooring in your commercial building or washroom such as the Top 10 Benefits of Ceramic Flooring we have listed below:
Ceramic tiles are best known for their outstanding ability to prevent damage. When tiles are installed properly with quality materials, they can take quite a beating and outlast many other types of flooring options. Since this product is so durable, there is little in the way of future repair or replacement expenses which means ceramic is a great long-term budget option.
In commercial buildings, moisture and water can become a serious liability for your business. Ceramic tile is a great option as it withstands moisture, both to the tiles and subfloor when installed properly. When choosing commercial flooring in a room with increased risk of water spills such as a public bathroom. It is a good idea to choose a ceramic tile with increased texture so it allows better traction when your floors may be wet. An even better decision would be to place rubber mats where there might be a chance of water to reduce the chance of a customer slipping and injuring themselves.
Ceramic tile is made by using natural materials which resist odors, allergens, and bacteria. Ceramic is one of the most versatile flooring solutions available, with literally thousands of styles, textures and colours to choose from. Ceramic can provide a realistic and natural appearance while providing long-term durable protection.
Fire & Scratch Resistant
Ceramic is a safe, non-toxic flooring material. Ceramic doesn’t burn or produce toxic fumes. (They even make bakeware, roasting pans and kitchen accessories out of ceramic now.) Ceramic can be used in both residential and commercial buildings as it can withstand a great deal of daily foot traffic and still maintains colour and texture.
Ceramic tile is recommended in all areas that sanitary standards must be met as it is one of the easiest floors to clean and sanitize. With Ceramic, the growth of potential allergens is reduced, making your commercial floors an ultimate, healthy solution.
Textures and Colours
Ceramic tiles come in a wide range of textures, colours and finishes which can mimic the look of natural stone for a better price. Glossy finish are a great choice for high-traffic areas or front lobbies. A matte finish or a textured tile can be an excellent choice in commercial bathrooms with increased chance of water spills to reduce the chance of slips or falls.
Another great aspect of ceramic tile is its colour durability. Long-term direct exposure to sun and weather neither alters the finish or colour. Ceramic tile continues to retain its colour and finish no matter the conditions, making it a great long-term flooring alternative.
Glossy ceramic tile should not be used where there is a higher chance of water spillage. In areas with a higher chance of water spillage, a textured, matte finish tile should be used which greatly increases the prevention of slips and falls. Improper maintenance and unacceptable cleaning procedures on the floor can increase the build-up of bacteria and toxin build-up which can reduce the slip-resistant qualities.
Ceramic tile is one of the most versatile and adaptable commercial flooring solutions available. It is also extremely easy to clean and can add a prestigious atmosphere to your business of home.
Cost / Expenses
Ceramic tiles can also be very cost-effective if you know where to look. The cost and fees is like any other type of flooring, the higher the quality - the higher the price. However, with ceramic tile you can choose from a wide selection of great budget, conscious options. On average, ceramic tile in Toronto typically runs anywhere from $3.50 and up per square foot depending on the quality and design. You should expect to pay approximately $6.00 to $11.00 for quality installation from a reputable, knowledgeable flooring installer depending on size and thickness of the tile.
