Transworld Tile

Kitchen backsplash tile may seem like a luxury purchase, because it certainly can be; however, there are a few very real-world needs for kitchen tiles above your countertops, and they have everything to do with moisture protection.

Water Destroys Homes

dreamstime_xxl_47043429We need water for just about everything, and the presence of controlled water defines kitchens and bathrooms. Anyone who has ever remodeled a home knows the importance of planning out your floor plan around what is possible with regard to current or future water lines. Water can also be costly and is one of the more dangerous elements of your home in regards to property damage. Unlike an electrical problem, which will often make itself known in dramatic (and often dangerous) ways, water and moisture issues are typically much more slow to develop into a dangerous or destructive state. Such potential issues include:

Mold & Mildew

Probably most infamous of the water issues are mold and mildew. Often, mold and mildew develop in cool, dark, wet places. These are not things you want in your home, as they not only devalue the property, but also put your family at risk for some scary health issues. Additionally, if mold or mildew are discovered within your home, you will likely need a costly remediation service, followed by replacing or repairing damaged structures.

Rotting, Cracking, Breaking

Water is patient. If it can’t break or ruin a structure in your home right away, it will do so over time. A water leak inside of your walls will quickly lead to rotting wood, likely compromising the structure of your home, while on walls or foundation can, over time, form cracks or create sinkholes, ruining your home’s entire foundation. If an unchecked water leak were given enough time, it would eventually rot, crack, or break just about everything you own.

Back to the Backsplash

If you’re still wondering why a kitchen tile backsplash is a necessity in your home, then consider this: Where does any moisture that ends up on your wall go? The obvious, and unfortunate, answer is likely inside the wall, alongside the back of your cabinets, or even into the floor below. In addition to the potential damages that could be caused to the wall’s interior and exterior, you are inadvertently creating a breeding ground for bacteria that is difficult to clean. With a kitchen tile backsplash, you can easily wipe free moisture, messes, and bacteria; without a backsplash, you have little ways to clean off the thin layer of paint protecting your walls from the destructive power of moisture.
