The Safest Materials For Your Home or Commercial Space


Aug 14th, 2020

Now more than ever it is imperative that we create cleaner, more hygienic environments. Fortunately, tile is an excellent surfacing solution with characteristics to promote sanitary, sterile spaces. Unlike other household or commercial materials like carpet, vinyl, or traditional wood flooring, tile is easy to clean and often bacteria resistant making it ideal for any area of the home.

Here are a few reasons why tile is the perfect material for your health and safety.

  1. Tile is Hypoallergenic

    • Tile is one of the only hypoallergenic flooring options because it is naturally inert and resistant to dust and other harmful pollutants that are known to cause a variety of health problems.
  2. Tile is Impervious

    • Unlike other surfaces, tile is impervious, meaning it’s inhospitable to dust mites, bacteria, fungi, mold and other irritants.
  3. Tile is Designed for Heavy Traffic

    • Tile is designed to handle regular heavy traffic, resist moisture, and be unaffected by abrasive dirt that can create places for bacteria and germs to hide.
  4. Tile Minimizes Seams

    • Seamless flooring minimizes spaces for bacterial growth, and large format porcelain tile options allow for fewer and smaller grout lines. Additionally, many manufacturers like Crossville Tile offer matching cove base products eliminating a 90-degree angle where the floor and wall meet that is harder to clean.
  5. Tile is Easy to Clean

    • Tile is low-maintenance, moisture-resistant, scratch-resistant, and stain-resistant. 
  6. Tile Pairs with Microban®

    • Microban® and Florida Tile have partnered to create protection from the growth of common microbes. Microban® technology consists of treating the ceramic material with a formulated antimicrobial additive capable of expressing high antimicrobial efficacy. This means that your tile is effective in fighting disease and can allow you to enjoy your space with comfort.
