Broward Eco Friendly Flooring

Eco Simplista - Your Eco-Friendly Home Improvement CompanyStudies have shown that indoor pollutant levels can be two to five times higher than they are outside. To find the source of many of these pollutants, just glance down. Many conventional flooring options, especially carpet and vinyl emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through a process known as off-gassing. VOCs are harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing process, and they are released into the air inside our homes over time.

Luckily, there are several sustainable flooring options that minimize indoor pollution and mitigate health problems caused by toxic carpets. You can now choose from a rapidly growing line of carpets and flooring made from recycled and eco-friendly materials. Durable, stylish, and often less expensive than conventional floors and carpets, these sustainable options provide a responsible and healthy way to enhance your home or place of business.

Did you know that Bamboo is a grass product that grows incredibly fast and is generally harvested in 3-7 years? What about Cork, a product of the Cork Oak tree that is not actually cut down- but the bark is peeled off every 8-14 years! These are just two of the products that we carry that would be excellent environmentally safe choices for your upcoming project.

Wood

Wood is a natural product in a diverse selection of colors and grain patterns. Who hasn’t marveled at the beauty of a home with a fine wood floor? It’s in our nature to love trees, to harvest them and to replant them. Wood is a part of our lives and our homes. There are more choices now than ever before… a wood floor for every taste. Wood is the easiest floor to clean, requiring far less chemicals.

Wood is our greatest renewable resource. North America has more than 70 percent of the forest cover that was here in the 1600’s. Plus many exotic woods come from certified sustainable forests.In North America we produce more wood than any other place on the planet! According to the World Resources Institute report, our continent was unusual in that it increased tree cover in the 1990s. In other words, we grow more than we cut. North America is also becoming known as a ‘carbon sink’. Scientists have shown that young trees use more carbon dioxide than older trees , much like younger animals need more food,

Bamboo Wood Flooring

Bamboo Hardwoods bamboo floors and bamboo flooring options will give you the natural beauty of hardwood flooring in your home without having you feel that your choice in hardwood flooring is having a detrimental effect on our environment. Bamboo Floors and Bamboo Flooring is one of the hardest, natural materials available for hardwood flooring and is an excellent alternative to tree wood because bamboo can grow wood faster than any tree. Because bamboo is a rapid growing grass and not wood, it can be harvested every 5-7 years, unlike 15-100 years for many tree wood. This makes bamboo a very environmentally friendly product for flooring.

Durapalm flooring is made from multiple layers of palm, creating both a stable and durable flooring product of great beauty. These planks come in lengths from two to six feet and are available unfinished or pre-finished. Durapalm flooring is always urea formaldehyde-free.

Cork Flooring

Cork is the bark of the Cork Oak tree. The trees, grown in the Mediterranean Region, have a life span ranging from 150-250 years. After the first 25 years of growth, the tree is stripped of its bark for the first time, using traditional hand labor methods. This process is repeated every nine years henceforth, at no time affecting the health of the tree. During each harvest, no more than 50% of the bark is removed, allowing the tree to protect itself using its natural defenses. Chemical pesticides and fertilizers are not typically used in the cork forest.

Natural Insect Repellent by Neem Tree Farms

It’s that time of year where the mosquitoes and no seeums began to invade South Florida and suddenly you got bug bites appear that start to itch. The best defense is to stop them before they bite.

Neem Tree Farms in Florida has some terrific products that can help protect you from those summer insect bites – get their Natural Insect Repellent to ward off mosquitoes and other biting insects

Botanical Outdoor Spray

Neem Tree Farms made the original Botanical Outdoor Gel a gel because it’s easier to apply on squirming children and lasts longer than a spray. Some of their customers, however, prefer a spray because it goes on more quickly and others asked for a formula without citronella. This new all-natural product is scented with essential oils of lemongrass, cedar and lavender with the additional boost of karanja oil, traditionally used to create a synergy with neem. 4 oz size

INGREDIENTS: Distilled water, cold-pressed azadirachta indica (neem) oil, Pongamia Glabra (Karanja) seed oil, ), essential oils of Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender), Cedrus atlantica (cedarwood) and Cymbopogon Flexuosus (lemongrass), and natural emulsifier made with plant products.

Botanical Outdoor Gel

No US company has EPA approval to sell neem products labeled to repel mosquitoes or gnats. Neem Tree Farm’s gel is made with a neem leaf extract and aloe vera base (to soothe bites you already have!), wild-crafted neem oil, citronella and geraniol. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed — if you don’t think it works, Neem Tree Farms will refund the cost of the product.

INGREDIENTS: Azadirachta indica (neem) leaf extract, aloe vera gel, cold-pressed azadirachta indica (neem) oil, essential oil of Cymbopogon nardus (citronella) oil, triethanolamne, polysorbate 20, diazolidinil urea, butylcarbamate, citric acid, geraniol.

Neem Tree Farms BEST OFFER: Some of their best customers are groups like scouts and outdoor organizations, so they’ve cut the price for (10) four-ounce bottles to just $42.99. You can share them among your group — some organizations even use them as fundraisers.

Solar Pool Pumps – Florida & The Caribbean

Florida Solar Pool Pumps by Florida Solar PumpTake Your Swimming Pool Pump Off The Grid – With a Lorentz Solar Pool Pump!

Offering residential and commercial solar pool pump systems:

The cost of electricity can be very costly and everyone is looking for ways to save money.

In Barbados, the average month basic electricity cost (Electricity, Heating, Water, Garbage) for an apartment is roughly $150*, then if you own a home, your electric bill will be much higher.

The second largest electrical consumption in your home can be the 230 Volt A/C Pool Motor (if you own a pool) that has to run every day to filter the pool water. It can take between 6-8 hours per day to do this task which can cost an average of **US$ .35 cents /kWh (kilowatt hour) resulting in an additional expense of $150-$200 per month!

Calculate your monthly savings:
Pool pump motor volts x motor amps =watts
Divide by 1000 = (KWH)
Multiply this by hours a day (run time),
Multiply by number of days in billing cycle.
= Number of KWH saved per month
Multiply by cost of KWH = monthly savings
Example for a 1.5HP A/C pump
230 volts x 9.4 = 2162 watts
2162 / 1000 = 2.162 KWH
2.162 x 8 hours =17.296
17.296 x 30 days = 518.88 KWH/month
518.88 x .35 cents per KWH = $181.61

Reasons to power your pool with a Solar Powered Pool Pump

  • Turn Off Your 230 Volt A/C Pump that can consume over $2000 per year in electricity and power your pool pump system for FREE from Sunup to Sundown using the energy of the sun
  • In a few years your investment in a Lorentz Solar Powered Pool Pump pays for itself in energy savings
  • The Lorentz Solar Powered Pool Pumps are virtually maintenance-free  using  a DC motor with  brushless technology
  • The life expectancy of the Lorentz Solar Powered Pool Pump is over 10 years, and the life expectancy for photovoltaic panels is more than 25 years
  • Pump sizes and panel configurations can be configured for residential & commercial pools
  • The solar pool pump is powerful enough to operate with existing pool heaters and automatic pool cleaners
  • Fight pollution. Reduce your carbon footprint by not using energy produced by fuel-burning power plants
  • This means the average solar pool pump installation prevents over thousands of pounds of pollutants from entering our atmosphere each year. References: www.sci-ed-ga.org, www.eia.doe.gov
  • The Lorentz Solar Powered Pool Pump system can build value into your home while saving money for your house hold
  • The Lorentz Solar Powered pool pump system carries a 2 Year Warranty
