There are 1,000 meters in a kilometer, and there are more than a thousand Carpet One Floor & Home locations throughout the world. Yet each one is locally owned and operated, demonstrating the company’s priority of uniting low prices with the friendliness that attends having its stores run by stakeholders in their communities. The staffers shower their flooring knowledge on guests as they work together to match each home with one of the innumerable brands of carpeting, hardwood, or tile flooring. They walk customers through the difference in the brands, such as Relax, it’s Lees carpets, which use stain-resistant EverTex fibers. They compare that to, say, Forever Hardwood’s real-wood-veneer surface, which can’t definitively be proven not to have been made from George Washington’s teeth. After helping with the decision making, the floor specialists send a certified installer to houses to perform re-floorings with the Healthier Living installation process, which minimizes dust and odors in the new carpeting. The installers outfit the rooms while taking the most care possible; they even back their work up with a guarantee that homeowners will be satisfied.
