When consulting Jim Lytell Marble and Stone Restoration, or your local Company, it is valuable to learn about your porcelain and ceramic floors. Porcelain is crafted from a mix of fine clays and minerals fired at extremely high temperatures, making it harder and denser than ceramic tile. Porcelain resists water, staining, bacteria and odors. Ceramic and porcelain is difficult to scratch, resists fire, and comes in a variety of shapes, colors and styles. Be aware that the tiles can crack and the grout can become stained. There are two basic types of porcelain and ceramic tile: Through or full bodied, and glazed. Through or full bodied means the color and texture run all the way through this type of tile, disguising chips or scratches. It’s suitable for floors, walls, and counter-tops.
Glazed tile is completely covered in a hard finish that is typically colored. It is strong and dense and offers the widest range of colors and designs.
In most cases, ceramic tiles or porcelain tiles can be refinished to a hone or polished finish. In a few cases, if there is a cleaning problem, we recommend sealing your tile. We have 2 custom trucks outfitted with pressure washer vacuums to clean tile and grout. We are able to achieve incredible results with our hot water pressure washer.
