Why Tile Flooring from Noble Floors is an Eco-Friendly Choice

Ceramic tile has been around for hundreds of years. It is made from clay and other materials like talc and different minerals. Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic tile. It is made from the same components, but fired at temperatures that are extremely high. The process creates a dense, moisture resistant tile.

The materials used are all natural resources. Those resources are not in infinite supply. Many manufacturers are using post-consumer and post-industrial content to manufacture a tile flooring that is recycled and eco-friendly.

Positive aspects of tile to the environment

Tile floors are durable and last a long time. Often the lifespan is longer than that of laminate, hardwood, or carpet. Longer lifetime means the need to replace occurs less frequently. Consequently, fewer materials and energy are used in producing new tile.

Irreparable damage to part of a tile floor does not mean the whole floor has to be replaced. Fewer replacement materials needed means money saved in the long run.

Ceramic and porcelain tile is, for the most part, waterproof. Waterproof materials are easier to clean thoroughly. Those suffering from health issues, such as allergies, find tile floors to be an excellent choice. Mildew, mold, and other allergens are not likely to take root on tile floors. Tile floors are naturally low in volatile organic compounds (VOC) or other toxic material. Tile is a safe choice of flooring for business or home.

The low maintenance means less money spent on restorative and cleaning products used to keep tile looking like new. In the long-term, there is less consumption of energy and resources.

Materials used in making ceramic tile are readily available. The availability of the materials means transportation distance is shorter. Using post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content eliminates mining of new resources.
Part of gauging a tile floor's ‘green' qualities relates to installation materials. Adhesive can have an adverse effect on the quality of air. When floors are installed, choose adhesives with low VOC levels. The same consideration applies to self-leveling underlayments, thin-set mortar, grout, and other tile installation products.
