    Marley manufacture lino type sealed floors (those you get in hospitals etc), thats their forte, but I think they do domestic linos and carpet tiles, but they are more about commercial and industrial floor coverings...

    With ref. to cleaning - easy peasy - thats what they are best at, again reffering back to hospitals floors....

    I take it these are the same Marley that make roof tiles?

    If so, and they're from the 60's, they're quite possibly some obscure clay compound not made anymore. I have no idea, but I would suggest attempting the old fashioned method used back then - hands and knees with a scrubbing brush?

    Quite right on the above - my grandma had these in her kitchen, they look fantastic cleaned up - once you've scrubbed them clean you can actually use beeswax to bring up the shine on the tiles - they do get slippy though!!!!

    Just clean them with warm water with a splash of fairy liquid.

    If you want to put a crust on it after try some Jonson's `Clear'..

    Been laying/selling them for 30 years, just going to give up and try something different.

    WARNING WARNING DANGER WILL ROBINSON

    Got a little carried away

    Be a little careful as the tiles may have a small asbestos content.

    Shouldn't be a problem with cleaning but if you decide to remove them take care. Also any gripper fixed through elderly tiles will pull them with it if removed so watch out for the dust. As the tiles get older they get brittle.
