Maintenance

Clean Flooring

Marmoleum's ability to naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria originates from the natural raw materials that go into its production, specifically flax seed oil. An inherent property of the product, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed.

With the correct cleaning regime, our Marmoleum floor coverings will not harbor allergens or house dust mites.

Lasting performance

Forbo Flooring's Marmoleum collections are easy to clean and maintain, thanks to Topshield2, an innovative and durable production applied finish which should not be removed. TheTopshield2 finish is part of the linoleum and the perfect base for your ongoing use of the floor.

Topshield2 has been designed to create a ‘ready to use’ Marmoleum that requires no initial maintenance or polymer application and is even more resistant to dirt pick-up, less prone to wear and has improved resistance to scratches and stains.

At the same time Topshield2 has the unique characteristic that the surface can be repaired or refreshed in cases of accidents or after years of intensive use, and thus creating a floor that demonstrates a lasting performance over time. Hence the longest market warranty.

Welding

To weld or not to weld?

In most of the cases welding a Marmoleum floor is not required. Skilled installers can make perfect joints without using a welding cord. However, sometimes local laws or health regulations could make it that you need to installe a welding cord between two sheets.

For both situations, Forbo Flooring offers the best solutions. Think about installation guides, instruction videos and welding rods specifically developed for Marmoleum floors.

Visit our Net fit or welding installation page to get more information.

Marmoweld

Marmoweld is a welding rod specifically developed to weld Marmoleum. For all Marmoleum colours we have developed a matching Marmoweld color. It is available in uni-color (round rod) or in multi-colour (square rod).

Forbo Floor Care for Linoleum floors

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable Topshield2 finish. Marmoleum with Topshield2 is the only resilient flooring with an occupancy-ready finish. This means that at the time of installation, cleaning with a neutral pH cleaning solution is all that is necessary. The Topshield2 finish also provides exceptional performance against soiling, staining, scratching, and scuffing. Topshield2 has been designed to create a Marmoleum that meets the demands of everyday use and is even more resistant to dirt pick-up, less prone to wear and has improved resistance to scratches and stains, and thus creating a floor that demonstrates a lasting performance over time.
