The New Linoleum
I have been tirelessly trying to find sustainable products for our current studio project and came across this product. It's called Marmoleum. This product is like linoleum, but is made with natural ingredients without any harmful VOC's or other toxic chemicals. The product is also installed with solvent free adhesives. Since we are working on a heathcare clinic, I was concerned about the bacteria growth, but this product has natural bactericidal properties that prevent micro-organisms including Salmonella, Typhimurium, and Staphylococcus Aureus, which means that people won't get sick while trying to get well at my clinic. It is also the first floor covering to receive the Asthma & Allergy Friendly certification and is truly a SMART certified sustainable product. What's not to like about this product?
