Choosing what type of flooring you install in your home is not an easy decision. There are many different alternatives, and what you choose will be with you for a long time. The most commonly considered factors are price, ease of installation, and appearance, and some will also include whether or not it is environmentally friendly and easy to clean to the consideration as well.

How does linoleum flooring meet those criteria? Well, it is a fairly cheap flooring material, not very difficult to install and it comes in a wide range of styles and colors. It even meets the environmental criteria since it can be manufactured from recycled materials.

It does have a shortcoming, however. Linoleum is easily damaged by strong acidic or alkaline chemicals, so you should avoid using chemicals to clean your floor. It is best to just use a vacuum and broom for day-to-day cleaning.
