Tile flooring in Lake Havasu City, AZ from Beno's Flooring

Should I be concerned with moisture if I have tile flooring?

Ceramic and porcelain tile repels moisture, and it's for this reason, along with its 'clean' look, many homeowners choose tile flooring for bathrooms, kitchens, entryways, and other moisture-prone spaces.

Beno's Flooring offers a selection of tile in Lake Havasu City, AZ, and in our second showroom in North Las Vegas, NV, we also repair and install tile flooring. However, while moisture will not damage a tile's surface, it may cause problems beneath a tile floor.

Above the floor

Water damage can occur when moisture lays on top of the tile and seeps through joints and then under the floor. This is caused by a burst pipe or regular exposure to moisture, such as the steam from a shower.

Thus, it's imperative to replace silicone around the joints when it becomes brittle or perforated and loses its seal.

Beneath the floor

Water damage can also occur when tile flooring is exposed to moisture beneath the floor. Improper tiling, such as tiles laid on a surface that is not sufficiently dry, is why moisture becomes trapped under the tile.

Beno's Flooring can end moisture problems, whether minor repair like new sealant or major subfloor or floor renovation is necessary.
