All-natural Marmoleum flooring is a go-to product for many of our customers’ kitchens and baths, but it’s also one of the most versatile and durable products we offer. Earth First flooring has installed Marmoleum in high-traffic commercial settings such as the following restaurants: Magpie in Greenfield, Northampton Brewery, The Alva Stone in Montague, and the former Karma restaurant on Main St. in Northampton. We’ve also installed flooring at The Pie Bar here in Florence. Since Marmoleum can withstand the traffic at busy restaurants as well as schools and retail establishments we know that it will perform beautifully in your home.
The gorgeous colors and styles available are based on a tone-on-tone concept that results in a warm authentic finish that brings natures colors indoors. The random marbling processes ensure your floor is one-of-a-kind! This unique approach to color where no two floors are ever the same has earned the company several design awards. In addition, the company was a true pioneer in the manufacturing of sustainable flooring products.
Marmoleum flooring helps create a healthier indoor environment, and is perfect for those concerned about indoor air quality and its relationship to health. Marmoleum’s naturally occurring anti-bacterial properties inhibit the growth of many micro-organisms, including allergen producing dust mites and the MRSA strain of bacteria. Studies have shown that harmful micro-organisms cannot live or breed on Marmoleum flooring. It is a natural product and it all starts with natural ingredients.
Linseed oil is pressed from the seeds of the flax plant. Wood flour is obtained from lumber industry waste (sawdust) and controlled forests, where every tree felled is replaced. Rosins are harvested from pine trees. The beautiful colors of Marmoleum are achieved by using environmentally responsible pigments, and the backing is woven with natural jute fibers. Even the adhesives used to install it are environmentally friendly and free of solvents. You won’t find any harmful substances in Marmoleum.
Marmoleum also has natural anti-static properties that repel dust and dirt, making it easy to maintain a clean and hygienic home. That’s something we can all appreciate!
