Tiles Are Good For Your Health?by Philip Smith Inbound Marketing Manager
When it comes to creating concrete wall, you can be sure that it is safe for our health. However, when you apply one or two layers of paint over your concrete wall, it turns hazardous. Paint is a inflammable material that easily catches fire and is not at all safe for your health.
Fire Safety –
Fire is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. According to FireRescue1.com, every year over 4000 people die and 18000 get injured due to fire breakouts.
If choosing to stone or ceramic tiles as flooring and wall surfaces, it is going to add to the overall safety and security of you and the members of your family. Both stone and clay tiles have zero chances of catching fire.
In the following we discuss some of the reasons why natural stones and ceramic tiles promote health safety –
No Fire –
Ceramic tiles are basically clay – the clay with added strengtheners and surface finish – which doesn’t actually catch fire. In ceramic and porcelain tiles, there is no PVC (plastic) – which melts easily and becomes a reason for fire hazards at a number of times.
Stone tiles such as marble, travertine, granite and slate are natural material, to be specific, processed from rock. Natural stones too have a very high burning and melting point. Technically, stone tiles cannot catch fire and demote the spread of fire during a breakout.
No Allergies –
Ceramic tiles have no VOC (Volatile Organic Component). That means, it does not promote the growth of concerning organisms such as mold, mildew, and others. The presence of bacteria and allergens is rare on ceramic surface.
In industry terminology, ceramic and porcelain tiles are often called a material that is not a culprit of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).
If timely cleaning, care and maintenance are ensured, natural stone surfaces too demote the presence of bacteria and allergens.
Last but not the least, stones and tiles save you from those small heart attacks that you get after seeing concrete floor maintenance bills. Both the materials are durable and most importantly, low on maintenance.
