Keegan from Carpets Plus of Manitowoc talks with Brandon Bartow about what’s in store for the upcoming year in flooring. Keegan recently attended numerous trade shows where flooring distributors rolled out new displays featuring warmer colors and moving away from the traditional grey shades. European Oak, which is a lighter, almost white looking wood color, is currently trending. Keegan also informed listeners of the “Mineral Fiber Core” or MFC 1/2″ Hard Surface option. This is a Resin Mixed with Compressed Fiberglass that gives consumers the best of both worlds; you receive the durability of laminate, but the glam of hardwood. Carpets Plus of Manitowoc will be one of the first in the area to house this display. No matter what your lifestyle, Carpets Plus of Manitowoc will have what you need. Keegan also talks about the 6.0 fiber in carpet verses 6.6 which he states is not a difference in the feel of the carpet, but in the durability. 6.6 is all in the twist of the fiber and lasts 30% longer in abrasion resistance. Keegan noted that carpet installs and comfort all lies in the carpet pad that Carpets Plus of Manitowoc uses. For optimum comfort, CPofM uses 1/2″ memory foam pad, but if you’re on a budget, Keegan recommends going to a 3/8″ pad. Maintenance of your carpet and Warranty of 20 years must be accompanied by cleaning your carpet every 12-18 months. The receipt of the cleaning must be kept and given at the time you file a claim.
