Porcelain tiles offer a resilient, hard-wearing finish for your floors. They are made with different materials to standard ceramic tiles. Sand and feldspar are added to create a denser tile, which is stronger and absorbs less moisture. This makes the tile more stain resistant and easier to maintain.

When it comes to flooring materials, porcelain tiles are one of the easiest to maintain. Smooth glazed surface tiles are the easiest to clean, but with proper care unglazed and textured porcelain tiles can be maintained without any difficulty.

Cleaning Porcelain Tiles

Here are 5 things you should know about cleaning porcelain tiles:

1 - Sweep or Vacuum Dust and Dirt Away

Your first cleaning action should be to get rid of any dust and dirt that has gathered. This can be done daily by using a vacuum cleaner, or it can be swept away. A dry mop is recommended for sweeping, rather than a broom, as this will give better day-to-day protection for the tile surface.

2 - Avoid Chemical Cleaners containing Ammonia, Bleach or Acids for Regular Cleaning

Porcelain tiles are heated to fuse the mixture together, giving it similar water-resistant qualities to glass. Regular use of corrosive chemicals can erode the surface of the tile, and increase its water absorption rate. Corrosive chemicals will also erode the grout, which will loosen the tiles and allow water to get beneath the tiles creating dampness. For everyday cleaning of porcelain tiles, just use warm water and a mop. Every couple of weeks clean with a mild detergent mixed in warm water. Only consider chemicals to remove any stubborn stains.

3 - Completely Wash Away Detergents

When using a detergent, ensure it is of a low concentration. Textured tiles may need a slightly higher concentration than other tiles. Cover an area of the floor with the cleaning solution and let it stand for about 5 minutes. Then use a mop to clean the area. Do not let the cleaning solution dry. Next, mop the area again with clean, warm water. This will get rid of any detergent residue and prevent water spots or powdery marks.

4 - Stain Removal 

Not all stains are created equal. We tend to utilise the same cleaning method for all stains, but this is not the correct way to go about things. Stains should be treated in the most effective way to reduce any long-term damage to the tiles or grout. When dealing with stains only clean the affected area; do not use on the whole floor.

 

5 - Get Rid of Stubborn Stains with Gentle Chemical Use

Following the above guidelines will give your porcelain tiled floor the best protection it can get, and keep it looking its best. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and major stains to tiles may need to be treated with a more aggressive approach requiring chemicals. Be aware that these chemicals can lead to a change in colour of the grout. First of all, follow the instructions above and find the best method to clean the particular stain. Make sure you are wearing suitable gloves, a mask, and eye protection, and ventilate the area by opening windows and doors that lead outside. Only clean the affected area.

By following these tips you will keep your porcelain floor in tip-top condition, and increase its longevity.

Bonus Tip: Place a door mat near the entrance to the room to catch most of the dirt being carried in, and reduce the amount of cleaning needed and prevent damage to tiles.

Porcelain tiles are a popular choice for kitchen and bathroom floors. This material offers design versatility and mimics natural stone varieties, such as limestone and granite. If you wish to change your interior flooring to tiles, consider the following advantages of porcelain and the reasons why you should choose these tiles for your home. 

 

Porcelain Flooring

 

Design-friendly and reliable


Most porcelain tiles are hard-wearing and simple to maintain. This means that once you’ve completed the job of installing the tiles in your home or office, you won’t need to worry about their colours fading; making
 Porcelain look beautiful in almost any setting. It is also good to know that porcelain tiles are very easy to install. Even a DIY enthusiast can complete the tiling project in the quickest possible time. Because porcelain tiles are so versatile, they can be used in the bathroom, home, or office. 

Fire, liquid and stain resistant


Porcelain flooring is naturally stain resistant and doesn’t let chemical stains penetrate through the material. In addition, porcelain’s density makes it more resistant to liquid absorption than any other type of tile. Our porcelain tiles are also stain, slip and fade resistant with low porosity.


Low maintenance


As this type of tile is water resistant, it becomes easy to maintain. Any spills can be cleaned on the spot, and by regularly sweeping the floor using pH balanced dish soap and water solution, the glazed surface will be protected and disinfected. 

If porcelain tiles are properly installed, they can last for decades. This saves you money in repair and replacement costs. They are also resistant to cracking from physical impacts. In the event that damage occurs to a tile, you can easily remove and replace it. In areas of high traffic, these tiles are an ideal choice as they are more durable than most other tiles and tend to maintain their new appearance. 

Available in different styles 


Porcelain tiles are made to look like granite, wood, limestone, or stoneware. You can select any style depending on your home’s décor. We supply two types of porcelain tiles; inside tiles and outdoor tiles. Our inside tiles are smooth with a polished texture and our outdoor tiles are textured with good grip. The difference between indoor and outdoor is the thickness, indoor tiles are 1cm and outdoor tiles are 2cm. However you can use our 1cm version both inside and out.

We cannot think of many better ways to embellish your outdoor living area, than by having a beautiful porcelain patio laid. The smooth, silky, and shiny effect a porcelain patio can have on its surrounding area is something to behold! We’ve come up with 3 ways in which you can embellish your patio with our stunning porcelain floor tiles – we hope you share our vision come the end!

Cool Blue – Our Bluestone range of porcelain patio slabs embodies all things cool, and all things blue! One of the luxuries of porcelain being manmade is that you have some flexibility in the outcome of its colour and tone. This freedom allows unique and vibrant shades such as our Bluestone Design, and Bluestone Vintage to become a reality. As you can see by the example we used in the picture, cool blue porcelain gives an effect like no other! If you favour more contemporary styles, we cannot think of a better surface for your patio than our blue porcelain tiles – they ooze a crisp, clean modernity that is infectious!

Classic Limestone – We never like to pigeon-hole our products too much, as we think Bluestone could work in the right traditional property, and Limestone in a modern one; having said that, our classic Limestone range of porcelain tiles is a fantastic way to give your patio a warm, earthy rebirth! If our Bluestone range is an example of how we can create the new, our Limestone range is how we can better the existing! As you can see from our product range, these tiles create a warming porcelain patio like that of real limestone – but remember, as this is porcelain we are dealing with, your tiles won’t stain, scratch, or need to be sealed. If you want to give your patio a makeover, our Limestone tiles will bathe your space with a charming Mediterranean warmth.

Tile Transition – The last way in which you can truly adorn your patio with porcelain is all about creating a continuous transition. For this to make sense, it is worth telling you that for all of our outdoor porcelain tiles, we have a thinner indoor version in the same colour. This means you can have your patio and adjacent room tiled in exactly the same beautiful tiles! The effect this creates is sublime; as you can see from the image above, it does this by creating a uniform living space, and the results are truly breath-taking!

These simple tips can help you create a masterpiece of a porcelain patio! What we hope to have shown you is the versatility of our floor tiles; whether you’re creating an ultra-modern space, or a traditional retreat, our floor tiles complement your area beautifully. And, if you want to really create a synchronised-space, why not use our same alluring floor tiles inside your home as well?

Along with the planning, designing, and constructing of a building, architects are also very much interested in how it will look afterwards. Not just in terms of structural integrity, but in terms of a more artistic view of beauty. Patio slabs play an important role in the overall appearance of a building; not only can they be used as indoor flooring, but the role they play in the outside area is particularly crucial.

The reason we say this is because your slabs will take centre-stage outdoors, what with there being fewer décor-distractions in a garden than indoors. This definitely puts an added pressure on really nailing the outdoor flooring, and this is where Porcelain Paving comes in! Architects really want to make a statement every time they complete a property, and our patio slabs allow them to do this!

Our manufacturers have the technological ability to make beautiful patio slabs that retain all the benefits of porcelain. Using various techniques we can recreate the identical shades, tones, and finish you get with the most desirable of stone paving slabs. As they are man-made though you also get a precision, consistency, and engineered-feel that you won’t find with natural stones. This all makes our patio slabs a very tantalising offer for the style-savvy architect!

It is not just a ‘statement’ property that could benefit from using porcelain; they may sound like a specialised material to some, but as we explained earlier they are made to look like more recognisable forms of flooring. These patio slabs have a large scope for application in landscape architecture, whether it to be to grace the patio of a traditional property, or to adorn the balcony of a minimalist apartment. The range of colours we stock caters to all styles and tastes – meaning no slab has been left unturned.

It’s looking good for our architects: in porcelain they have a slightly more interesting proposition than bog-standard stone; these slabs have the aesthetic-merit to match the finest of stone, with a reassurance you only get from hi-tech manmade materials. And we haven’t even got to the best bit yet – these tiles are going to carry on looking their best!

It’s all very well having beautiful patio slabs laid, but if in a short time their finish becomes blotted by water damage and stains, your efforts have been wasted. Where we think architects will really take favour with our paving is with its strength and durability. Due to the high temperatures it’s baked at, along with it being impervious to water, and the increased thickness of an already strong material, our porcelain is strong enough to be used in commercial areas – even those subjected to heavily pedestrianized foot-traffic! In a residential property our slabs are going to keep looking pristine for an age – this means the architect’s vision can enjoy some serious longevity!

Architects will enjoy the alluring-aesthetics of our porcelain slabs, along with their versatile range. They’ll also be won over by the quality and durability, meaning you both can enjoy this beautiful flooring for years to come.
