Universal Carpet installs many different types of flooring materials in homes and commercial locations all across the region, and this includes tile flooring. Tile has quickly become one of the most popular flooring options because it is easy to have installed, and it is very affordable. Many times, this is the material of choice for commercial property managers who need to add new flooring in apartments, hotels, condos, or townhomes. There are many different styles available, including more premium varieties including ceramic and porcelain. It's practical, popular, and it comes in many different designs, shapes, colors, and patterns.
One of the main benefits of tile flooring is the fact that it is easy to care for and maintain. With both vinyl and ceramic styles, there really aren't any special cleaning solutions that need to be used as these materials are typically known for their resistance to staining. Spills can easily be cleaned up, making tile flooring an attractive option for kitchens and bathrooms. It is also fairly resistant to moisture, making it a great option for basement environments that sometimes have problems with water seepage. Routine cleaning of this flooring can be done with mild cleansing solutions and a standard mop. The floor can also be swept over with a broom or vacuum.
Installation for this kind of flooring is pretty straightforward. Vinyl tiles will typically come with an adhesive backing on them. The backing is removed, and the tile is set into place. With ceramic or porcelain tiles, the tiles will need to be set in place carefully and adhered to a subfloor below. Grout will need to be added between the tiles, and it will be stained to match the color of the tiles so that it isn't so obvious. We will clean over the surface of the floor once installation is complete.
