Healthiness and cleanliness are at the forefront of everyone’s minds these days, but it is easy to overlook one of the most important aspects to a healthy home – the floor beneath your feet.
“For many years the floor covering industry has been consciously improving home and business environments for users,” said Jan Tudor, President and Co-Owner of Tudor Floors & More Carpet One. “They’ve created low-VOC [volatile organic compounds], hypoallergenic, and now antimicrobial products. These innovations have paved the way for a healthier living space.”
More and more carpet mills are manufacturing their products with a material called Microban, an antimicrobial substance used in a variety of household products, medical equipment, and military gear. While not antiviral, Microban helps keep homes clean in a wide variety of ways.
“Microban technology in carpet helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew,” Tudor said. “All of those things can cause stains, odors, and product deterioration. When Microban is built-in, it lasts for the life of the carpet and keeps it cleaner and fresher between cleanings.”
Phenix Flooring is the only brand of carpet that offers built-in Microban protection. Tudor Floors & More Carpet One has a variety of Phenix products in stock, including their collection of Microban items.
STAINMASTER PetProtect carpets are another option.
“This particular carpet features built-in stain protection for any unfortunate accidents, resists pet hair, and even reduces pet odors,” Tudor said. “It’s the first carpet and cushion system that provides a breathable moisture barrier that help prevent spills and accidents from penetrating to the pad and subfloor. It’s a great choice for active families.”
Though Tudor Floors & More Carpet One is temporarily closing their showroom in response to COVID-19, they are continuing to serve their customers remotely with products and services for any budget.
“We are aware of our customers’ most valued assets—their families and their homes,” Tudor said. “When our showroom is back and running, we encourage our customers to check out samples so they can review them in their home. We sanitize all samples returned to our showroom for the health benefit of our customers.”
