First, determine what is in front of you linoleum — natural, made from sawdust and linseed oil, or its artificial substitute of PVC-materials. Make it easy: natural material a natural oil fragrance, artificial — sharp smell of cloth. On the underside of the linoleum visible fabric, similar to coarse sackcloth. Have a PVC coating, this framework represents a foam layer, like a sponge. Artificial linoleum is easily bent, it is soft and pliable, natural linoleum is hard as plywood, and it is impossible to bend.
If you have linoleum, to update its appearance, every six months use a special mastic coating. This should be done using a soft, better wool, cloth and a few brushes.

If your faux linoleum in the course of its operation showed a white film, try to remove it by means of the Cif, Silit, etc. Carefully clean the most contaminated region or Comet powder "pemolyuks".

Get stains from coffee, iodine, or a felt tip pen with a surface of linoleum with a small amount of kerosene, gasoline or turpentine. But keep in mind that these substances are harmful for the coating, use them in minimal doses.
To return the luster, both artificial and natural linoleum, wipe it with water, which boiled potatoes. It should be slightly warm and unsalted.
