SMART Carpet and Flooring Offers Resilient Vinyl Flooring that Can Handle Summertime Traffic

SMART Carpet and Flooring has a wide selection of durable, resilient vinyl flooring options in their mobile showroom.

"The idea that vinyl flooring is inferior to all-natural products is no longer true," remarked Brendan Phillips, president of SMART Carpet and Flooring. "The best products on the market today are among the strongest flooring options that money can buy and feature long-term warranties."

The DuraTru resilient vinyl flooring collection from Shaw ( offers a trifecta of durability, beauty and value. Products are available in eye-catching wood, tile or stone designs, with more than enough color choices to suit any interior design. Beyond the aesthetics, DuraTru flooring includes built-in features that separates it from ordinary vinyl flooring products. ArmourBead™ technology, for instance, gives DuraTru five times the durability of a typical polyurethane surface. Within the flooring, a fiberglass cushion effectively reduces sound transmission, so kids running in and out won't sound like an elephant stampede.

"Easy" is the calling card of DuraTru flooring; easy to install and easy to maintain, resilient vinyl flooring products don't require any special treatment. The surface is water, mildew and stain resistant, all while being exceptionally durable. For more serious stains, such as blood or oil, the manufacturer provides a care and cleaning guide that instructs users on how to safely and effectively remove any trace of stains.

For homeowners who've always wanted the look of hardwood or laminate but weren't able to make the switch because their sub-floor wouldn't allow for it, the Shaw Chatham Plank is a great alternative. The Shaw Chatham Plank ( boasts many of the same remarkable features as DuraTru resilient vinyl flooring, but in the form of a floating vinyl plank. Virtually indistinguishable from real wood, Chatham Plank is available in five natural colors. Like DuraTru, it's easy to clean and resistant to staining or moisture. Installation of Chatham Plank is likewise a snap: VersaLock AG Technology secures the planks together without the need for adhesives, which can degrade over time.

Modern flooring products, Shaw Chatham Plank and DuraTru among them, are challenging the notion that nothing lasts forever. To further ensure that flooring remains good-as-new for the life of the warranty, SMART Carpet and Flooring suggests some simple cleaning and care tips. All heavy appliances and furniture should have floor protectors under their legs to spread weight evenly. Mats and rugs strategically placed near doors and other high traffic areas can trap dirt, thus preventing stains and reducing dirt build-up.

With a superior vinyl flooring in place, homeowners can have an open-door policy with kids and pets, confident in the knowledge that their floors will maintain their strength and beauty regardless of traffic volume.

For those considering vinyl flooring for a new home or just as a renovation, the friendly professionals at SMART Carpet and Flooring suggest booking an appointment for a free estimate. The mobile showroom brings thousands of flooring samples straight to the consumer's door; after all, home is the best place to shop for a product that's so pivotal to the overall look and feel of a room. SMART Carpet and Flooring currently serves all of New Jersey, Staten Island and parts of Pennsylvania.
