Rubber Flooring Reduce Noise Inside The Home!

Posted on: December 4th, 2014 by

Rubber Flooring Has Many Great Uses!What to do when a pesky landlord decides that despite a security deposit and a contract, he/she just does not feel comfortable with your canine moose on their precious hardwood floor? In L.A., many residents are faced with this dilemma constantly. There are few solutions that are quite as resilient, practical, and cost effective as recycled rubber flooring. While mainly used in kennels and more commercial applications, a 650 square foot apartment can greatly benefit from this as well.

A ¼” thick layer of this rubber can serve to greatly reduced noise, protect the hardwood floor from swelling should your pup have an accident while you’re at work or away, and is actually easier on the joints for older dogs. If odor is of great concern, rest assured that proper ventilation should dissipate and outgassing within a week at the most. Since these are recycle tire rubber as opposed to virgin rubber, the harsh “rubber-band” smell is largely reduced through the recycling process.

So let’s say you’re the landlord is concerned with scuffing of the floor kind of like the soles of some cheap work boots might. You can tell them to stop being such a baby since this is easily remedied with any cleaning solution. Most importantly, however, you can remind them that this rubber flooring does not scuff or leave marks. Again, since it’s recycled rubber, the bonding agent does not allow the rubber material to leave any significant scuffs or “tire marks” on the floor. Again, anything left is easily remedied with a light cleaning solution or agent.

Should any Angelino or resident of major metropolitan areas be faced with this type of situation, remember that there are options for you and your canine buddy! Don’t let the landlord pull the rug from under you! Keep it in place with some rubber flooring!
