Even the cleanest among us has had to reconcile with the idea that microbes can’t be eliminated without a fight. Furthermore, if you do plan to fight microbes in your home, you can leave your vacuum in the closet. To help prevent microbial growth, a great feature that works is antimicrobial technology.
Consider your floors. You sweep, mop and vacuum them regularly. But still, over time, dirt and moisture find their way to the underside of flooring. Once there, dirt and moisture remain trapped on top of the underlayment. Typical underlayment becomes colonized with microbes that can eventually eat away at the underlayment, generating unwanted musty odors and unsightly staining in the process.
ECF Underlayment, on the other hand, is infused throughout with high-performance antimicrobial technology. It works by creating an inhospitable environment for microbes, one that makes it difficult for them to feed, grow and multiply. In addition to being effective at fighting odors and staining caused by bacterial and fungal growth, our antimicrobial protection can help protect the underlayment from material breakdown caused by microbial growth.
Installing ECF in your home means that you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes knowing your flooring underlayment is protected from microbial growth. The tangible result is a longer-lasting durable underlayment product that will stay cleaner and fresher.
