Linoleum - Marmoleum
Natural linoleum has been around for ages; here's why this durable green floor is so widely applauded.
Yes, it's linoleum, but it's not the drab flooring found in older homes. Marmoleum is all natural and comes in a rainbow of beautiful colours. Unlike typical vinyl floors, Marmoleum has no foul odours that off-gas into your environment. It's Asthma and allergy certified, safe for you and your family. And it's SMART certified as a sustainable product.
Marmoleum is safe, durable, easy to clean and will make your room come alive with colour. Great for residential and commercial applications. The main benefits are:
Asthma & Allergy Friendly
Hard wearing & Durable
It's natural and sustainable: Healthy indoor environment. Marmoleum is made with natural ingredients without any harmful VOC's or other toxic chemicals. The sheet goods are installed with solvent free adhesives and Marmoleum Click is installed without any adhesive. Marmoleum has no adverse health issues whatsoever, either during production, its useful life, or disposal. It is truly sustainable.
Marmoleum is a floor you can walk on without your feet being cold. Unlike hard cold tile floors, it is a warm, comfortable, healthy floor that looks and feels great.
The natural bactericidal properties of marmoleum prevent micro-organisms including Salmonella Typhimurium and Staphylococcus Aureus from multiplying themselves. It is the continual oxidation of the linseed oil that enables this phenomenon
In this busy rush rush life, time is better spent having fun...not cleaning floors. With Marmoleum, dust mop and damp mopping is the extent of the attention the floor needs. Unlike carpet, stains don't sink in, stain, and require intensive effort to clean and often to no avail. If you spill on Marmoleum, simply wipe up and presto...all done.
If you're looking for a dust free environment again marmoleum is the natural choice. The anti-static properties of marmoleum not only reduce the potential for electric shock, they also make the floor easier to clean, because dust and dirt will not easily adhere to it.
It's fun! Design. With Marmoleum sheet, tile or click - you are the designer! It's not the typical assembly line pre-printed pattern. Marmoleum offers the tools to work with; over 150 colors, insets and borders with endless possibilities. Marmoleum offers you the opportunity to express yourself in your own unique way, to create your living space as YOU envision it. From designs with quiet simplicity to the use of daring colours and patterns, Marmoleum can fulfill a broad range of desires.
For these reasons, Marmoleum is the floor covering of choice in many hospitals, as well as being recommended by medical professionals for people with respiratory disorders.
