Understanding the benefits of green tile in your home is essential to making an informed decision when you decide to remodel your bathroom, kitchen, or any other area where tile will be featured. The following are some of the most notable benefits you will want to factor into your decision:
- Green tile does not have any VOCs. This means you won’t have to worry about toxic chemicals seeping into the air within your home.
- It’s easy to clean. As with regular tile, a little soap and water is usually all it takes to clean it up. Of course, you should always follow the manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations for best results.
- Most green tiles are made from 100 percent post-consumer material that has been recycled to make new tile. However, there are also tiles that are made from pre-consumer material that is the byproduct of other processes.
- Green tiles make it easier to obtain a LEED certification for your home. This adds to the value and may also qualify you for discounts and tax breaks in your municipality.
