Types of Tiles and Grout We Clean

Synthetic Floor Types:
Ceramic Tile

Ceramic Tile is clay-fired, man-made material. Surfaces in glazed ceramic (single-fired, double-fired, etc…) do not normally require any protective treatment. It is the glaze itself that gives the material its excellent protection against the absorption of dirt, along with its particular aesthetic effect. Many of the new ceramic tiles in today’s market are manufactured to look like real stone.

Saltillo or Terracotta Tile

One of the oldest man-made ceramic materials, this type of floor is obtained by mixing clay and water-leaving this to dry naturally-then baking it in a kiln. Saltillo tile has particular characteristics of a physical (absorption), mechanical (special finish), and compositional (for the different types of clay) nature that demand special treatment.

Vinyl Composition Tile

Vinyl Composition Tile can be found in nine-inch tiles, but most commonly in 12 inches. It contains vinyl resins and comes in a wide variety of colors. It is an extremely dense yet porous floor and has a good resistance to acid, alkaline and solvent base spots and spills. It is highly resilient and is installed in light, medium and heavy traffic areas. Of all resilient floor coverings, VCT is the most commonly found in commercial use.

Porcelain

Is a very hard material that is particularly resistant to chemical agents, scratches, freezing and to the absorption of water. Porcelain tile can be given a polished surface industrially. This produces the “polished” version with its mirror-like shine. However, unlike the “natural” or unpolished versions, it is subject to marking. It can be honed and polished, but is very difficult and time consuming.

Natural Floor Types:

Terrazzo Tile

The appearance of the Terrazzo is more uniform than most natural stone, and is available in tile forms or by pouring application on the slab. Terrazzo is a mixture of Portland cement and Marble chips. These chips can range in size from a fraction of an inch to as large to several inches. The advantage of Terrazzo is it can be ground, honed and polished like Marble. It is sometimes mistaken for granite

Limestone Tile

Is limestone that has been formed in hot springs. Water movement caused the erosion of the stone creating numerous holes of varying sizes. Polished travertine contains holes filled with color-matched Portland cement filler. These fillers do not take a high polish and therefore, the overall polish may appear blotchy.

Slate Tile

Is classified as a “rough” material with a low absorption. Slate can be found both on interiors and exteriors, and rarely has a high polish unless coated. Slate can be problematic due to its high clay content, especially in wet areas. Slate can develop efflorescence easily. A color enhancer may be applied to slate floors, to create a more vivid appearance.

Marble Tile

Is known as a calcium carbonate stone and has been a metamorphic rock. Marble reacts to acids and gives a high-gloss appearance. Its acid sensitivity means it scratches easily. Although, many marble stone has veins, swirls and bands naturally. For cleaning and restoration purposes, the most suitable method should be chosen depending upon the level of wear. Cleaning marble entails removing the dirt, erasing stains and restoring the worn protective layer.
