A Cleaner Floor Starts with TORLYS

Cleaner Floors by TORLYS answers call for antimicrobial flooring protection.

TORONTO, ON – May 2021 – TORLYS, a global flooring company specializing in beautiful, responsible flooring solutions, is thrilled to announce the launch of Cleaner Floors by TORLYS, a campaign focused on educating consumers on how to protect their flooring investment with antimicrobial product protection that helps keep floors 99% cleaner between cleanings, 24/7.

Certified TORLYS floors inhibit bacteria growth with Microban badgeWith the need for a cleaner home more important now than ever before due to Covid-19, it has become more critical to think about solutions for the area that retains the most bacteria right under our feet, flooring. As part of a decade-long partnership with Microban®, the global leader in antimicrobial technology, to provide innovative flooring solutions that contribute to a cleaner space, TORLYS is expanding on this commitment by offering its revolutionary built-in antimicrobial protection on most TORLYS Smart Floors.

“We are excited to showcase our antimicrobial flooring coverage through Cleaner Floors by TORLYS, where we will highlight how each of the antimicrobial features inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew to provide customers with a floor that stays cleaner for longer,” says JF Pelletier, TORLYS Director of Product Management, adding, “While you can’t always prevent bacteria from entering your home, you can have peace of mind knowing you are proactively protecting your floor with antimicrobial technology.”

In the middle of the floor is TORLYS™ Smart Core with Microban® ensures the core remains protected from product degrading bacteria. Underneath the floor, CorkPlus™ Blue & FoamPlus™ Blue Underlays with Microban® protect the areas you can’t see and helps prevent mold and mildew under the floor.
