Marmoleum is a natural linoleum that is bio-based, highly durable, non-toxic, anti-microbial, and easy to maintain. It is made from all natural ingredients that include linseed oil, limestone, tree rosin, wood flour, natural mineral pigments, and jute. This alternative to vinyl offers buyers many colors to choose from and the ability to customize a design.
Marmoleum is produced in three different forms: sheet, tile, or click. The sheet and tile styles are glued down with Frobo Sustain 885 adhesive, while the click style comes in long rectangular or square planks that operate on a tongue-and-groove system. Click has a 2.5mm thick layer of Marmoleum on top of a high-density fiberboard layer and a cork bottom layer. The sheet form offers over 150 colors and patterns, the tile selection offers 65 options, and the Marmoleum click is available in 24 colors.
Cleaning Marmoleum is fairly easy and it does not require any extra topcoats unless it is damaged. This material is also water resistant so should something spill, it is okay, but be sure to wipe it up quickly so no harm comes to the material. To regularly clean Marmoleum, simply dry mop the surface to pick up any dirt or debris. You can also damp mop Marmoleum with diluted Marmoleum Floor Cleaner.
According to Forbo, Marmoleum is 96% organic. No toxic chemicals or volatile organic compounds were used in the manufacturing of Marmoleum. This material also doesn’t emit any foul-smelling chemical odors and the cleaning products don’t give off any chemicals either.
