Stopping the spread of germs has been paramount since the start of the pandemic. Now, Daltile offers a tile product that can help protect your family and eliminate germs in your home.

Daltile’s DEFEND™ Powered by Microban, is a line of anti-microbial tiles for your floor or wall. The tile is powered with Microban, an antimicrobial product, that cleans and protects for life. The Microban never wears or washes away, so your DEFEND surfaces are protected 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Microban works for you even while you sleep by continually stopping the growth of microorganisms that contaminate your home and make you sick. It’s constantly working to damage the internal systems of a microbe from the cell protein, membrane, and DNA, and it stops those bacteria from reproducing. It works so hard for you that you’ll never need to use a separate disinfectant on your surfaces.

Even though DEFEND is powerful, it’s nontoxic, and safe enough if your food comes in contact with the surface. It not only keeps your surfaces clean, but it gives your space a beautiful look. DEFEND is available in a variety of looks like Defend Your Home WITH DALTILE marble, wood, stone, concrete, and fabric. You can choose from a wide selection of trendy colors.

DEFEND™ Powered by Microban is an obvious choice during a pandemic, but even as the threat wanes, germs will always be around. Visit the experts at Daltile today at 9901 Kincaid Drive in Fishers or go to for more information.
