Cage Question

I noticed in a few cage pictures that Rat Cages were customised to add tile flooring.

Sam and Nick have a Marshall cage, and I was wondering what the reasoning was? Does it help keep the cage cleaner? When I clean their cage, I wipe everything down with white vinegar, and it doesn't smell - but was wondering if the tile would keep it cleaner?


Nick & Sam are my first rats, and they are a blast!

I thought marshall cages have the little dent that the pee gets caught up in?

I think people do it to make it easier to wipe down daily. Some people also do it because they're afraid that the solid flooring can cause bumble foot if not kept really clean.
