MANASQUAN, N.J., Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Winter isn't done with us—or our homes—just yet. Rain, snow, and even mud can be easily tracked into a home by children, pets and visitors and wreak havoc on the floors this time of year. Fortunately, SMART Carpet and Flooring, the original shop-at-home flooring provider in the tri-state area, has some practical advice to help keep the home nice even when winter is at its nastiest.
For entryways and other areas that receive a high amount of traffic directly from outside, SMART Carpet and Flooring recommends vinyl tile flooring. Naturally stain-and scratch-resistant and easy to clean, vinyl tile is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Similarly, hardwood flooring is a smart choice for homes when cold, wet weather rolls around. Today's hardwoods are treated to be stain- and soil-resistant, and wood traditionally adds warmth to a home.
"There are many durable flooring choices that can stand up to the harsh winter weather," said SMART Carpet and Flooring President Brendan Phillips. "We advise homeowners to decide which type of flooring meets their needs, whether that's a stain resistant hardwood or an easy-care tile, and then choose a variation of that particular type of flooring that ties in with their design aesthetic."
SMART Carpet and Flooring offers two jumping-off points for homeowners interested in exploring their options in durable flooring: Congoleum's 14"x14" tile flooring and Mohawk's Timberline Oak hardwood flooring.
Congoleum tile flooring includes Scotchgard Protector for even greater durability and ease of use. Available in a palette of neutral colors and textures, Congoleum tile flooring can be installed with or without grout.
Mohawk's Timberline Oak five-inch plank flooring features EazyCare™ stain- and soil-protection and DuraCore™ technology for added strength. With a range of colors to choose from, Timberline Oak is appropriate for any room in the home.
Homeowners interested in additional durable flooring recommendations this winter can call on SMART Carpet and Flooring for expert help. The company's mobile showrooms are staffed by flooring and design experts who can show all of the available options directly in the customer's home and help choose the right flooring for the customer's lifestyle.
SMART Carpet and Flooring was the first company to bring flooring choices directly to homeowners in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Each mobile showroom contains thousands of carpet, tile, wood floor, vinyl, and stone flooring options, which consumers can see in the comfort of their own homes, against their own lighting and décor. The company can remove old flooring and install new floors, and SMART Carpet and Flooring's wide range of price points and finance options ensure there is a flooring choice for every budget and style.
