Why Choose Ceramic Tiles For Your Stairs?

A new modern way to design the stair case in your home is to use ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles look absolutely great and make a durable covering for stairs. An experienced tiling company, like Siera Stone Ltd, which is one of the best tiling companies in London, can help you determine whether ceramic tiles would be the right choice for your stairs. 

Here are some main reasons why ceramic tiles can be the ideal choice for your stairs.

Ceramic Tiles are burn resistant
Any kind of burning object, like cigarette ash or a burning matchstick can cause lasting damage to some kind of floor coverings, but with ceramic tiles there is no such problem.

Ceramic Tiles are medically recommended
Ceramic tiles, whether glazed or unglazed, have very dense surface; this means harmful micro-organisms, mites and other harmful organisms that cause allergies don’t stand a chance, if the tiles are cleaned in a proper way. Ceramic tiles are thus medically recommended.

Eco-friendly and long lasting
Ceramic tiles are considered eco-friendly as they can be disposed of as building waste. The components of ceramic tiles occur naturally in unlimited quantities; so they are not bad for environment. Ceramic tiles are strong enough to provide beauty and functionality to your house for years and when cared for in the proper way and laid correctly by professional tiling companies, ceramic tiles continue to look terrific for years.

Be spoilt for choice
Ceramic tiles come in different, patterns, colours and sizes that can be used alone or can be mixed together for numerous design options. All you need is a little imagination coupled with the experience of a good tiling company, like Siera Stone Ltd, which is one of the leading tiling companies in UK to create great stairs that will lend an amazing beauty to your interiors.

Easy to maintain
As Ceramic tiles do not require resurfacing, refinishing, re-glazing, or re-coating, they are the easiest to maintain and prove to be cost effective in the long run.

Best Ways To Maintain A Tile Shower

As the leading tiling contractors in London, the experts at Siera Stone Ltd have always been asked about the best tips to maintain a tile shower to avoid costly repairs in future. So, to benefit the home homeowners and save their efforts, time and money; Siera Stone Ltd-the leading tiling company in London presents this informative blog to keep your shower tiles new like for years.
Grout maintenance
Grout used in tile installation is made with a water repelling property built in, which is meant to look shiny and bright forever, but in reality it does not happen. Even with the best cleaning practices, sometimes yellowing and mildewing of grout happens. This is because it is wet most of the time and receives no sunlight.
So, how to maintain your grout to keep it clean, sealed and looking pretty? Using harsh chemicals to clean your grout can eventually wear down your grout’s water repelling property over time, causing grout to absorb water; the result is-mildewing and discolouring. When this happens, the homeowners are left with no other option but to re-grout.
The right way to clean the grout
Harsh chemicals can make your grout appear cleaner and whiter, but it makes the grout porous. A better and eco-friendly way to clean your grout is to use a mixture of one-third white vinegar to two-thirds water. Use a soft scrub brush with a little elbow grease and you will have cleaner grout in few days.

 Seal the grout to make it last long
Sealants add water repelling property back into the grout that's lost over time. Grout that is sealed will not just be more durable but more stain resistant too. The experts at the leading London tiling company recommend sealing at least once or twice a year after consulting an expert.

 Use a squeegee
Buy a squeegee that you can use after each shower. This will allow less water to dry on your grout, tile and shower doors, thus leaving less mineral deposits behind.
These were some amazing tips you can easily use to keep your shower tiles looking new like for years. For more such tips, or to get the best tiling solutions for your homes and offices, contact Siera Stone Ltd, the best commercial tiling contractors in London.
