SMART Carpet and Flooring Suggests Empty Nesters Consider a Flooring Project This Fall

MANASQUAN, N.J., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Fall is a fantastic time of year for home improvement projects. Parents who've seen their children off to college are understandably eager to re-do the kids' rooms and reclaim the home as their own, and the mobile showroom of SMART Carpet and Flooring ( makes such projects convenient and affordable.

SMART Carpet and Flooring Suggests Empty Nesters Consider a Flooring Project This Fall

"Seeing the kids grow up and leave home is tough, but at the same time it's an opportunity to start some projects that have been on the back burner," remarked Brendan Phillips, president of SMART Carpet and Flooring. "New hardwood flooring can transform a living room, bedroom or kitchen. We're proud to stock all of the most respected names in flooring and carpeting like Bruce, Mirage and Shaw, while giving customers the savings made possible by our mill-direct business model."

With a reputation for excellence, homeowners can't go wrong with Shaw – the company has over 50 years of experience developing and manufacturing exceptional carpets and floors. Golden Opportunity is one of Shaw's most popular options in the hardwood category. As a solid hardwood flooring solution, each piece is composed entirely of red oak and is available in six distinct colors: cherry, butterscotch, coffee bean, gunstock, saddle and rustic natural. Each piece also displays lots of variation in color and grain, giving the finished floor a natural, gorgeous look and feel.

For homeowners interested in flooring that can theoretically last a lifetime or two, there's no substitute for solid hardwood. The strength and durability of solid hardwood means it carries loads much better, resists scuffing and normal wear and tear, and is easier to repair and refinish than either laminates or veneers. Hardwood provides an instant value upgrade to any home.

Solid hardwood flooring is an environmentally conscious choice, too. Shaw sources its raw material in a sustainable manner, and the manufacturing of solid hardwood is less resource intensive than most other flooring types and produces fewer byproducts.

Maintaining a hardwood floor is far less work than many people imagine. Citrus, wax and harsh cleaners are not only unnecessary, but they can damage the wood and shorten its lifespan. Instead, Shaw provides a custom product for occasional heavy-duty cleaning, but for the most part, sweeping, vacuuming and promptly wiping up spills is all that's needed to keep a solid hardwood floor in tip-top shape.

Shaw hardwood flooring comes with the patented ScufResist® Platinum finish, which, in side-by-side testing, resisted scuffs far better than the competition. While the manufacturer still recommends using furniture pads and strategic area rugs for hefty furniture and appliances, ScufResist® means there's no need to "baby" the floor.

More than a mobile showroom, SMART Carpet and Flooring offers customers concept-to-completion services. The company can professionally install any carpet or flooring precisely to specifications; all installations are warrantied for a full year, which is enough time for a hardwood floor to experience each season and settle into shape.

SMART Carpet and Flooring's mobile showroom gives customers as many products to browse as a 10,000 square foot showroom. But without the high overhead of a huge showroom, the company can offer remarkable savings that competitors cannot match. SMART Carpet will celebrate 20 years of doing business in 2015; all signs point to another 20 years of making the carpet and flooring shopping experience more convenient and more economical for everyone.
