Carter Oosterhouse explains how natural linoleum offers a healthy indoor environment.
More in Home Improvement
Natural linoleum has been a popular choice as a floor covering for over a century. It's made from natural raw materials including linseed oil, rosins and wood flour. Because of these materials, natural linoleum offers a healthy indoor environment. It has no adverse healthy issues either during production, use or disposal. The bactericidal properties of natural linoleum stop microorganisms from multiplying, so natural linoleum is often used in hospitals. Besides the health benefits, natural linoleum is anti-static and reduces the potential for electric shock. It also makes the floor easier to clean since dust and dirt do not easily adhere to the surface.
