When Should Tiles Be Replaced?
From your kitchen to your bathroom to your roof, beautiful, sturdy tiling
is an important part of any home. But as we have seen firsthand, there
are a myriad of factors that can damage your tiles over the years, preventing
your house from reaching its full aesthetic potential. As
pest control experts, Modern Exterminating has seen too many tile roofs destroyed by
rats, mice, squirrels, and birds. Meanwhile, in the bathroom,
excessive moisture problems often cause tiles to wear down faster,
drawing insects inside your home as well. And in the kitchen, there are a myriad of ways for your tiles
to get damaged over time during your daily cooking. Plus, let’s
not forget that if you do not clean your tiles properly, or they were
not installed well in the first place, you can end up with a ton of problems
on your hands. Fortunately, our Columbia, SC tiling experts are here to
offer a range of repair and installation options to have your tiles looking
good as new again in no time.
When to Upgrade Your Tiles:
Outdated Style: While your tiles may have been fashionable at the time your home was built,
it is very possible that their style has become outdated as the years
have gone by. If your tiling no longer fits with your larger aesthetic
tastes, do not hesitate to give Modern Exterminating a call for a modern
replacement. We promise, whether you’re interested in that sleek,
contemporary look or have something more timeless in mind, our Columbia
tile installation team has what you are looking for.
Visible Damage: No one wants to look at cracked or scratched tiles, plus tiles that are
actually sticking out can be a hazard. If you are dealing with a cracked
tile here and there, Modern Exterminating can provide you with the needed
replacements to keep your household safe and your tiles looking great.
If the cracking has spread across the floor, however, you may want to
consider retiling the area entirely.
Structural Problems: When your tiles wear down, it is often because there is not enough flexibility
between the tiling and the subfloor. In these cases, our tiling contractors
in Columbia will need to perform an uncoupling membrane to input the new
floor’s load evenly so it remains supple and prevents further cracking.
Remember, your kitchen or bathroom tiles should not make noise as you
step over them. In cases where you are hearing a lot of sounds coming
from your tiles, you are probably dealing with some kind of rotting or
deteriorating in your flooring. If this is the case, and your tiles are
damaged and hard to clean as well, it is important for the aesthetic value
and structural integrity of your property that you replace them.
