Linoleum is a beautifully designed product made from natural materials with linseed oil as a base. The surface has a special treatment that gives the linoleum countertop its characteristic look and texture, as well as making it anti-static and minimising fingerprints.
Linoleum has the property that the inevitable small scratches on the surface will reduce over time and simply become a natural patina. However, be careful with the material if it is used in kitchen work zones. As linoleum is not water- or heat-resistant, you need to use screeds to protect the surface.
Linoleum is a surface that requires maintenance and a certain ‘tenderness’. Daily cleaning is done with a cloth in clean warm water. Soapy water can be used if the countertop is very dirty. HORN recommends linoleum cleaner for thorough cleaning and care of the surface. Do not use ordinary sulfo liquid and harsh detergents!
