In the UK it rains for almost half of the year, 156 days if some websites are to be believed, so the last thing anyone wants to be doing when the sun makes its rare appearance is cleaning the patio. Though both natural stone and wood can be used for your patio, they are notoriously hard to clean, collecting dirt, weeds and mould. This is why we at The London Tile Co. have decided to help make your life as easy as possible with our range of outdoor porcelain tiles.
Due to the vitrification process the porcelain material undergoes, where the tiles are fired at high temperatures, they become impermeable to water, dust, mould and moss growth. The hard-wearing nature of our porcelain tiles means they look like they have only just been laid for far longer than other wood and stone alternatives. This means that when the sun is out, you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy like having a BBQ or just relaxing catching those elusive rays.
Gone are the jet-hose and bleach days, but if you do want a patio clean enough to eat off here is how we would give our porcelain tiles that extra shine:
