Even though porcelain is built to last, the bathroom conditions make it have to go through different demands than any other room, so you must know the signs.
Stains. If you fail to remove a stain, or there wasn’t a professional sealing during the installation process, the bathroom’s humidity has undoubtedly set in the porcelain, and it will be tough to remove. In fact, it’s possible that if we don’t take action, it will keep expanding. It’s time to replace it.
Decoloring of white cement. When the grout’s white cement starts to decolor or stain, remember that this is a porous material, and it tends to absorb liquids both from the bathroom (the shower, for example) or cleaning products. These cement changes indicate that these liquids may be going through the tile, and you have to consider changing it.
Mold. In many cases, it is possible to avoid mold from appearing on humid spaces in the bathroom, but just like stains, if you let your guard down, it may become a chronic issue, and you will be left with no choice but to replace it. Remember that mold, aside from ruining the aesthetic, can be fatal for people with breathing disorders, so you mustn’t hesitate when it’s time to make a change.
