Bamboo flooring is an investment and, when installed properly, it can give you decades of problem-free use. But with all wooden flooring, proper moisture protection is critical. As part of the regular maintenance of your flooring, we recommend cleaning up wet spills as soon as they happen. But what if the source of the moisture is underneath the floor? Protect yourself and your investment with this Sound Absorbing 3-in-1 Underlayment.
Expert Protection for Floating Floors
Designed for all floating floors, this product can be used with all of our Click Lock floors. It offers sound reduction: at least 72 decibels less with the super sound eliminator technology, in addition to moisture protection and cushioning.
Installation is easy. 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.
Why Do You Need a Bamboo Floor Underlayment?
An underlayment for bamboo flooring is an important ally that will extend the life of your floor and provide moisture protection and sound deadening. If you're installing onto a concrete subfloor, proper moisture protection is critical to prevent bubbling, blistering or peeling. Always test a concrete subfloor for moisture before proceeding with any flooring installation.
