Five Healthy Reasons to Choose Tile


Ceramic tile is made of naturally occurring ingredients, fused together when fired at thousands of degrees during manufacturing, resulting in a final product which is inherently inorganic and fully inert. This means that surfaces covered in ceramic tile don’t emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are the tag-alongs no one wants, like formaldehyde, which sometimes come along for the ride with other floor and wall coverings. With ceramic tile, designers are home free of VOCs.

Reduces Allergens

Ceramic tile’s hard surfaces do not give allergens a place to hide, and it’s easily cleaned with a broom or light water-only mopping. That means no dust mites, no pet dander, no pollen, and none of the chemical allergens common to other floorings.

Prevents Mould

Mould and mildew need food and water to grow. Of all the popular floor and wall coverings today, only ceramic tile is inhospitable to mould and mildew. This is because ceramic tile is made of inorganic ingredients that don’t support hungry spores. And, when disinfecting a surface is desired, ceramic tile easily stands up to cleaners like bleach and other disinfectants.

No Harmful Chemicals

Besides the fact that it’s beautiful, ceramic tile will not expose a home's occupants to harmful chemicals. That’s not always the case for other floor and wall coverings, where chemicals including phthalates, formaldehyde and halogenated flame retardants can be found. 


Ceramic tile won’t feed a fire rating because it isn’t combustible. Since it won’t burn, it won’t cause smoke, nor will it emit toxins in a fire as many other floorings do.
