Linoleum is a natural, tough, low-maintenance floor surfacing material derived from oxidized linseed oil. The linseed oil is mixed with plant materials such as wood flour, ground cork, and pine resins, then bonded to a jute backing. Because linoleum is made of top-quality organic materials and and can have anti-microbial properties, it is a popular flooring in health care facilities, hospitals, nurseries, and playrooms. Linoleum is also a great choice in residential homes in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. Since linoleum’s smooth surface can be quite slippery, especially when wet, we recommend an anti slip treatment to make these rooms safer for all who use them.
