Tile Has a Very Long-Life Cycle
You might be amazed if you could see the amount of carpet that is wasting away in landfills. What’s worse, much of it is made with plastic and will not actually be wasting away for many years. The incredible amount of carpet in landfills is due in part to the short life cycle of carpet. Tile, on the other hand, is one of the longest-lasting flooring products you can find. If you buy quality tile and it is installed correctly, it can last a lifetime – much longer than carpet, vinyl, or laminate flooring will last.
Tile Can Help Improve Indoor Air Quality
In California, we have certainly been hearing plenty about indoor air quality lately. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a huge contributor to many health issues and are one of the main causes of “sick building syndrome.” This is not an issue with tile because it is fired in extremely high temperatures, so the VOCs is literally zero. You also don’t have to deal with adhesive or grouts with VOCs, and tile lets you more easily sweep out other allergens like rust.
You Can Buy Local Tile
It might be more affordable to buy many materials from overseas, but we pay a big environmental penalty for doing so. Due to the size and substance of tile, you can easily find some in your region. When you choose tiles made from local materials, you are doing even more to help the environment.
