If you are looking for a greener, more sustainable flooring selection for your commercial interior design project, look into Forbo Marmoleum. Forbo Marmoleum is an up-and-coming, sustainable material perfect for residential or commercial interior design projects. Marmoleum combines the best characteristics of green materials that enhance a living or work space while considering the environment and human health. It is a naturally organic product made out of:
- Linseed oil from flax seed.
- Finely ground sawdust known as wood flour.
- Pigments with no heavy metals like cadmium or lead.
Marmoleum’s sustainability comes in large part from the oxidation of the linseed oil, which actually improves the material’s durability and anti-microbial properties over time. Additionally, Marmoleum is anti-static, making it a good choice for those with asthma or allergies problems.
As an accredited professional of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) I would ensure that Marmoleum is placed using solvent-free adhesives too. The process is completed by applying a water-based primer like TopShield to guard against dirt buildup, prevent scuffing and makes it easier for mop cleaning with just water.
Residential customers love Marmoleum’s natural warmth, it’s sound absorption properties and ease on the feet when standing or walking. Commercial users appreciate this sustainable material’s resistance to continual foot traffic and heavy rolling loads.
Forbo Marmoleum is available in sheets or tiles. Green Depot Environmental Living and Building can advise potential customers about which type is better suited for a particular space. As an ecologically sustainable material, Marmoleum is a foot-friendly choice to consider when opting to use green design for home or commercial interior design.
