Learn About Porcelain
Porcelain tile is very durable and commonly used in home and commercial settings for flooring, showers and countertops. These tiles are more dense and much harder than ceramic tiles. Color on porcelain extends from top to bottom. The tiles are made from heating fine porcelain clays and other natural materials to temperatures between 1,200 and 1,400 °C.
Some porcelain is made to look like travertine or other stone patterns. Like ceramic, porcelain tile is nearly impossible to stain. It is also scratch-resistant and easy to maintain.
We have proven over and over to be the best Tucson company at cleaning porcelain tile and grout, whether it is on flooring, showers or countertops. Our process for cleaning porcelain tile and grout consists of using appropriate equipment and machinery, as well as hand-washing corners, edges and hard to reach areas. We use a combination of neutral pH cleaners and degreasers that are safe for your tile, your family and the environment. The grout in between the tiles is usually a main concern due to discoloration from traffic and poor maintenance. Improper or aggressive cleaning can cause damage by opening the pores of the grout, making it more susceptible to staining from pet accidents, dirty mop water, spills, and grime/asphalt from shoe traffic. Grout is concrete. It is extremely porous and can become stained when not sealed. Our advanced coloring process for grout restoration completely renews the grout and provides the best seal possible.
