Porcelain’s density means that it has a great ability to repel water and spills. This ability to be non-absorptive makes it one of the ideal reasons to purchase this flooring material. With an unusually low absorption rate, Porcelain is in the category of low maintenance flooring systems. A damp paper towel usually grabs all the spills and smudges. Armed with a bucket of water and mild soap, you’ll be able to lift and disinfect even the tougher stains right from the surface.
