MANASQUAN, N.J., Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- If the pitter-patter of little feet has turned into a never-ending symphony of stomps, thumps and clatters over the years, SMART Carpet and Flooring has good news: It is possible to have some peace and quiet without getting rid of pets or family members. And all it takes is some of today's eco-friendly floor padding that's designed to control sound.
No longer just for carpets, floor padding is also ideal for dampening sound on laminate, engineered wood, floating hardwood, and luxury vinyl tile floors in homes and commercial buildings alike.
"So often folks get used to the noise level in their homes as it slowly increases over time," said SMART Carpet and Flooring President Brendan Phillips. "Modern floor padding is specifically designed to keep rooms quieter, which gives any home or office a greater feeling of serenity."
To lessen sound in the home, SMART Carpet and Flooring recommends installing products like Future Foam's SSG II sound control floor padding under hard floors. Versatile--it can be used under floating floors or under single glue, nail-down, or staple floor installations--SSG II is manufactured with 100% virgin rubber and is 100% recyclable. The padding includes a moisture barrier to keep mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria from forming under floors, making it ideal for kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and entryways.
Homeowners who prefer the look and feel of carpet are covered as well: SMART Carpet and Flooring includes premium six-pound or eight-pound padding with all of its carpets. In addition to providing a luxurious feel underfoot, SMART Carpet and Flooring's carpet padding dampens sound and inhibits the growth of bacteria, thanks to an antimicrobial material encapsulated in the padding during manufacturing. The encapsulation method ensures the padding's antimicrobial properties will not wear out, even in high-traffic areas. For bedrooms, where sound-absorption and a soft feel to the flooring are particularly desirable, SMART Carpet and Flooring offers a nine-pound memory foam carpet pad upgrade with spill guard technology built in.
SMART Carpet and Flooring got its start in New Jersey, when Phillips began bringing flooring samples directly to customers' homes. That was 22 years ago. Today, thanks to the mobile flooring showroom model SMART Carpet and Flooring pioneered, the company is the leading at-home flooring supplier in the tri-state area, where homeowners have the luxury of choosing from thousands of carpet, tile, wood, vinyl, and stone flooring samples in the comfort of their own homes. SMART Carpet offers complete flooring services, from flooring removal and installation to in-house financing.
