As the human race continues to cause damage to the earth, more and more people are becoming concerned with the products they use and how they are sourced. This is the same in the flooring industry with some people consciously choosing eco-friendly flooring option over the more traditional options available to them. One such eco-friendly option we offer is Marmoleum flooring and this is the focus of today’s blog.

What is Marmoleum?

Marmoleum is Forbo’s highly durable and sustainable linoleum brand. This versatile flooring comes in a range of different applications which are perfect for a variety of different rooms and properties. It is made from natural materials and its innovative design makes it an ecologically sound choice for almost any home or business.

Why Choose Marmoleum?

Here are some of the main benefits of Marmoleum flooring:

  • Sustainable – Marmoleum is made from 97% raw materials, of which 72% are renewable and 43% are recycled content. It is also 100% biodegradable and is made in UK factories that are powered by renewable energy.
  • Design options – The flooring is available in more than 300 different colours and in more than 12 different structures. Marmoleum is highly durable and hygienic. It is often used in healthcare and education environments. 
  • Health benefits – Choose Marmoleum if you suffer from asthma or similar disorders. It is anti-static, which makes it easy to keep dust free and has proven bacteriostatic properties that inhibit micro-organisms. 
  • Easy to clean – Due to the fact it is anti-static, Marmoleum is really easy to clean. A damp mopping every now and then is all that the floor needs. Spillages don’t sink into the floor and don’t need intensive cleaning.
