Ceramic is one of the most hygienic coating choices. It does not retain odors, does not stain, and is very easy to maintain with products commonly used at home. When installed on the floor, a little vacuuming and mopping is more than enough to keep your tiles as clean as new. In addition, if one of the tiles on your floor gets scratched or breaks, it will be very easy to replace it with a new tile.
