Tile flooring seems to be ever-growing in popularity and has a classic look that can live beyond the trendiness. September is Tile month for Zerorez! Along with some awesome specials on tile cleaning we like to take a closer look at tile this month. To show it some well-deserved appreciation. So what makes tile flooring so special? 

1- Long Live Tile Flooring

No other flooring can tote the longevity of tile and stone flooring. Being made from natural materials, ceramic or porcelain, tile is made to stick around. In fact, tile has an average lifetime of sixty years! Investing in well-made tile flooring that you properly care for can mean never having to worry about re-doing the flooring in your home. Since it is so long lived it’s best to choose neutral colors and patterns. As we all well know, the decor you have now probably won’t be what you have ten years from now. 

2- Easy Maintenance

Who doesn’t want flooring that’s easy to maintain? Tile is pretty low maintenance compared to other flooring options like hardwood or carpet. Sweeping or vacuuming regularly helps keep allergens at bay. Mop with Residue Free® Zr Water® to keep it looking great. We do recommend having your tile professionally cleaned and sealed every 12-18 months, or whenever you see those grout lines getting darker. 

3- The Easier to See You With

In Arizona we got bugs… like scorpions. No one wants to step on one of those suckers. Tile flooring is great for spotting bugs in your home, including the bark scorpion, as they can’t hide down in fibers like they can in carpeting. Now, keep in mind that those bark scorpions are a light brown color, so it’ll probably be harder to spot them on light brown or tan tiles. 

4- Cool It Off

Hard flooring can actually help keep your home cooler in the summertime. How cool is that? Being in Arizona, we will take all the help we can get. Tile is made from ceramic, porcelain, or natural stone and doesn’t retain heat like other flooring and will feel cooler to the touch. In the summer this means your AC unit may not have to work as hard to keep your home at your desired temperature. 

5- Kick The Allergies

Tile floors are good for those that suffer from allergies because they don’t hold onto molds, germs, or pollens. It’s also easier to keep pesky allergens at bay in your home. In Arizona dust can be a huge problem for allergy sufferers… who are we kidding, dust is a huge problem for everyone. However, keeping your tile floors swept regularly will take care of all that Arizona dust. Well, for a few days anyways. 

6- The Options are Endless

Options are endless when it comes to tile flooring in Arizona. There are stones, porcelains, and ceramics. But, beyond that, there are so many colors, textures, and shapes you could make yourself dizzy. Can’t decide which tile? Try combining options to make a truly unique flooring pattern for your home. 

7- It’s Just Pretty

Do you want your space to look cleaner, larger, and more open? Tile flooring is also easy to accent with Area rugs to soften things up a bit and reduce echo. Hard flooring is considered premium floorings in a home and can actually increase the value of your property. With so many styles and colors, it’s more than easy to find something that fits the look and feel of your home and adds to its overall appeal.
