3-in-1 Super Silencer Floating Floor Underlayment

Moisture Guard & Sound Eliminator
1/8″ – 100 sq ft / per roll
3-in-1 Super Silencer Underlayment is designed for use with our Ambient Click-Lock Strand Woven bamboo floors or other floating floors. It now has an aluminum side and rubber side. This new product is very dense, increasing sound rating to 65 decibels and provides a cushion and moisture protection. Please note that the roll square footage is 100 sq ft as opposed to the 200 sq ft for our other underlayment. Just unroll the underlayment and run it the length of the room until the entire subfloor is covered. Tape seams together and the overlapping moisture guard edges prevent moisture from penetrating.

BAMBOO FACTS

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth.

A sixty-foot bamboo cut for market takes 59 days to replace. It can be selectively harvested annually and regenerates without replanting.

Bamboo helps reduce carbon dioxide gases.

Some bamboo sequesters up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare, which makes it a highly efficient plant, and conducive to fresh air. It is known to produce greater biomass and 30% more oxygen than a hardwood forest of comparable size.

Bamboo is a natural water control barrier.

Because of its widespread root system and large canopy, bamboo greatly reduces rain run off, prevents massive soil erosion, and keeps twice as much water in a watershed.

Bamboo can restore degraded lands.

It is a pioneering plant and can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture. Proper harvesting does not kill the bamboo plant, so topsoil is held in place. Because of its dense litter on the forest floor, it feeds topsoil, restoring healthy agricultural lands for generations to come.

Eco-costs of shipping across the world: If you live on the West Coast and buy an Oak or Maple floor (which comes from the East), there is more embodied energy in that product than a bamboo floor made near the coast in China and shipped over the water. Ocean freight is simply that much more efficient. And this does not even take into account the fact that the tree cut on the East Coast will take 50 years to grow back whereas the bamboo tree cut in China will take only 5 years to grow back.

  • ISO 14001 Certified. This is the Guideline for an organization’s environmental policy is set based on the elements of an environmental management system and its implementation. Commitment to compliance and continual improvement can be audited to demonstrate that the environmental management system is operating effectively in conformity to the standards set.

Bamboo Hardwood Cleaner


Hardwood Floor Cleaner

Ambient Hardwood floor cleaner is an environmentally responsible, biodegradable product.

The neutral pH formula is designed to remove soils, scuffs, and residue from all no-wax bamboo flooring. This no-foam producing, no-rinse cleaner restores floors to their original luster without damage or residue.

Directions – Sweep off all dust and debris prior to using cleaner. Spray cleaner directly on the floor surface. Using a micro-fiber pad, and using a back and forth motion, clean the floor in the direction of the wood. Wash soiled pads as needed. Continued use of soiled pads will result in streaking.
