The Microban® Advantage is exclusive to TORLYS

The Microban® brand of antimicrobial protection technology provides TORLYS with the exclusive right to use Microban® for the protection of its cork underlayments.

Your floor will remain clean to the core with TORLYS Smart Core with Microban®. Microban® antimicrobial technology ensures that even if bacteria reach the core of your floor, it will remain clean and fresh.

At TORLYS, They Protect What Matters Most

There is a common misconception that the dirtiest areas of a house are the ones that we touch with our hands. In fact, the area that retains the most bacteria is directly under our feet. Because of the daily activities we engage in, floors constantly accumulate bacteria. There are even crevices underneath many of these windows that allow harmful mold to grow! With TORLYS antimicrobial flooring, you can help protect your home from bacteria. Antimicrobial technology is built into certified floors, allowing you to live more and worry less.

TORLYS Antimicrobial Protection: What Does It Mean?

A microorganism cannot grow if its reproduction is suppressed by an antimicrobial. A microorganism consists of a cell or cell cluster in a single cell, including eukaryotes, including fungi and protists, as well as prokaryotes, including bacteria and some algae. By using Microban® technology, products are enhanced with antimicrobial protection that prevents the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew, reducing odors and keeping your home clean. Microorganisms such as bacteria, mold, and mildew cannot grow with antimicrobial protection. A TORLYS floor with 24/7 antimicrobial protection provides an extra layer of protection against odor-causing microbes. There are a wide variety of TORLYS Smart Floors available with TORLYS antimicrobial protection. Antimicrobial technology can be found in different parts of a floor, including the finish, the core, and the underlay.

TOLRYS understands that protecting the environment has never been more important than it is today. As a member of the CGBC, TORLYS works hard to make our floors as sustainable as possible and only considers treatments that are non-harmful to the environment. With Microban®, antimicrobial agents are safely and effectively eradicated. During manufacturing, it is bound into the solid treated product, so it cannot enter the wastewater. As a result, there is little potential for leaching.
