MRSA can survive for more than twelve months on dry surfaces however it does prefer a warm moist environment like a wound or the nasal passages. A ceramic tile may be a very hostile environment to MRSA, but the grouting in between tiles may be more habitable. MRSA has been found in hospital ward areas that have been allowed to gather dust. It’s survival on surfaces is however dependent on other factors such as humidity of the environment and its transmission to cause problems is opportunistic.
