Since Porcelain is so dense, it means that it has a great ability to repel water and accidental spills. Its non-absorptive properties make it one of the most ideal reasons to install this as a flooring system. This characteristic of Porcelain makes it a low maintenance tiling system. Damp paper towels will pick up the spills and scuffs. A simple bucket of water with mild soap mixed in will be able to help lift and disinfect stains right from the Porcelain surface.
