What is Marmoleum?


Marmoleumis a type of flooring that is made from up to ninety-seven percent natural components, such as wood flour, pine rosin, ground cork, and solidified linseed oil. Seventy-two percent of the materials used can be regrown in less than ten years, and most types of marmoleum are made with upwards of forty percent recycled content to reduce the amount of raw materials used in fabrication. Marmoleum, unlike vinyl, is biodegradable, which makes it an excellent material for the ever growing number of people looking to reduce their carbon footprint and contribution to environmental damage. It’s easy to maintain and typically lasts from twenty-five to forty years.



Why Marmoleum?

Rolls of marmoleum are easy to transport, quick to install, and simple to work with. Marmoleum tiles are also a popular choice, as they give designers, builders, and homeowners the ability to mix and match colours to create modern and sleek patterns. Another common way marmoleum can be purchased is in modular click tiles. These tiles have a wood or fiberboard bottom and click together in a tongue and grove type fashion.



Maintaining Marmoleum


There’s no easier to maintain flooring material than marmoleum. For day to day cleaning, a simple sweep will suffice.

Once finished, it’s sometimes recommended that the floor be rinsed with a simple solution of warm water and a drop of vinegar to neutralize the alkali found in most cleaning products. That’s really all there is to it!
