Sustainable Features of Resilient Flooring

vinyl, floorcovering, linoleum, cork, rubber

Many types of resilient flooring have sustainable features beyond recycled content. Some floorcoverings, such as linoleum and cork, are made from natural and renewable materials.

Some resilient floorcoverings require relatively little maintenance. Those that need less maintenance over their lifetime will require less water and other cleaning chemicals, resulting in water conservation and less potentially harmful chemicals being introduced into the water supply.

Resilient floorcoverings also usually have a long lifespan, sometimes even up to 30 years or more. The longer a floor is in service, the fewer resources that are consumed and less waste goes into a landfill. Keeping the existing floor in place as long as possible also avoids the emissions from the create and transport of new flooring materials.
