For those who are trying to decide if they want tile, carpet or wood floors, you will need to weigh out the benefit of each and how it will fit your own lifestyle. Silver State Floor Restoration would like to cover some of the benefits that tile or stone floors can bring. Maybe you will find tile or stone flooring is right for you and your needs.
Tile Helps Keeps Your Home Cooler
One of the top reasons many homeowners are switching to tile or stone flooring here in Nevada is because it helps keep your house cooler and saves money on your electric bill. The great benefit that tile and stone floor bring is that these floors can absorb the cooler temperatures and keep it. Carpet holds in the heat made by people, pets, and the sunlight. This causes your A/C unit to work harder to cool the inside of those areas. Tile and stone floors actually repel the heat and hold the colder temperatures, thus keeping your home cooler on the inside. Some will say the down side is the winter. Many will argue that walking on cold floors in the winter sucks and is unpleasant. For many, a warm pair of socks does the trick. The saving in the summer time still outweighs the cold of the winter, especially living in the hot Las Vegas desert.
Easy to Clean Tile & Grout Floors
Another benefit people find is that it is easier to clean. Carpet fibers have a way of holding onto dirt, and hair from pets. Even after you vacuum there always seems to be hair and dirt left behind. Not to mention the stains carpets seem to get. Tile and stone floors don’t hold onto dirt and hair, and even spills are much easier to clean up. For those with pets and children this idea holds a lot of appeal. Those with allergies or asthma say the tile and stone floors are beneficial to them. For the same reasons, no dirt, pet hair and other source of allergens stick to tile floors. Not only are stone and tile floors easier to clean up after they also cost less. Carpets should be cleaned about every 6 months, where tile and stone floors only need a deep clean once a year. Some even go longer if there aren’t any pets, or children involved.
Tile Floors Come in a Wide Variety
Tile and stone floors come in a wide variety. You can pick from numerous styles, colors, textures, and designs. For those people who want to bring their own unique feel to each room, you have that ability. With variety, tile and stone floors are cost effective. Even though some of the more unique stone floors can be pricey, it is an investment that last for years. Stone and tile floors are ageless, carpets wear out within five to ten years depending on the environment, such as children and pets. Tile can last decades even with abuse making the tile or stone floor more cost effective in the long run.
