Advantages of Marmoleum Flooring

Advantages of Choosing Marmoleum Flooring for Your Home or Office This product is available in flooring sheets and tiles. Made from a combination of linseed oil, limestone, cork flour, wood flour, pine, and rosins, the result is a non-toxic and highly-durable product. Marmoleum flooring is versatile and has a variety of advantages.

  • Easy to Clean
The surface of the floor can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner or a mop. Its hard, protective layer resists stains. The manufacturer may suggest a special cleaning solution to keep the surface looking its best. Do not use water to clean a marmoleum floor.
  • Resists Dust and Bacteria
If you or anyone in your household is allergic to dust, a marmoleum flooring is worth considering. Its antibacterial properties make it a cleaner type of floor covering than carpeting, which tends to attract mold and mildew, as well as pollen, and animal dander.
  • No Adhesives Required for Installation
Since the flooring simply clicks together, no adhesives are needed to join the floor tiles. You avoid having to deal with any fumes and the inconvenience of having to clean up afterward.
  • Marmoleum Flooring is Eco-friendly
This flooring product does not give off any VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), which are carbon-based chemicals that evaporate at room temperature. Some studies have shown that breathing them in for long periods of time may increase risk of health problems, particularly for those who have asthma or a chemical sensitivity. Marmoleum flooring is 100 percent biodegradable when disposed of, so it will not result in any health concerns.   To see samples of marmoleum flooring and other options for you home or office, stop by the showroom at Tony’s Flooring Centre.]]>
