Interested in cost-effective and eco-friendly flooring? Choose linoleum tile squares; not only are they easy to install and maintain, they come in an extensive range of colors and design styles. You can find linoleum tiles that coordinate perfectly with your home décor and taste preference.
Linoleum tile squares are a great alternative to vinyl floor tiles. Unlike floor linoleum tile, vinyl flooring is not typically considered environmentally friendly. In fact, they're made with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a substance that's believed to increase one's risk for cancer. Vinyl floor tiles can emit this hazardous chemical for years after they're installed.
With linoleum tile squares, you don't have to worry about exposing yourself or your loved ones to toxic chemicals. Additionally, linoleum floor tiles get harder and stronger over time. If you currently have linoleum floor tiles in your home and have noticed that they have a yellow tinge, don't worry - this is normal. Yellowing, or blooming, often occurs under furniture (e.g. refrigerator) and other areas where linoleum tile squares are covered. Once you expose the tiles to oxygen and sunlight, the yellowing should dissipate and the color should be fully restored.
