Happy 50th Anniversary to Shaw Industries!

Shaw Industries, Inc. has been in business since 1946, and the company first started as Star Dye Company. Star Dye Company was a small business that dyed tufted scatter rugs. The company officially became Shaw Industries, Inc. in 1972. In 1985, Shaw made its first appearance on the Fortune 500, which is a list of America’s largest corporations. Shaw created many major changes throughout the years to provide better service and value to customers.

In 1972, Shaw started generating their own yarn supply after purchasing its first yarn plant, and the next year the company bought its first continuous dye plant. The company created its own trucking subsidiary and established regional distribution centers across the United States. Over the years, Shaw has continued to focus on decreasing the consumption of fuel, water, and electricity in the manufacturing process. In addition, Shaw continues to focus on finding innovative recycling solutions as well. The company started the area rug division in 1993, and the hard surfaces division was launched in 1998 with Shaw Ceramics. After 1998, Shaw laminate flooring and Shaw hardwood flooring was introduced.

6 Ways to Keep Your Floors Clean in Winter

Winter is a beautiful time of the year but it is also a very snowy, muddy, and rainy time of the year. Also, there are many family gatherings for the holidays and unfortunately there may be some spills and muddy foot prints. Here are some great tips to help you keep the floors in your home clean this winter:

Place mats at every entrance of the house.


 


 

Take off muddy/wet/snowy shoes and leave them at the entrance to the home or in a mud room. If mud does get on the carpet, then let the mud dry and shatter it, and then vacuum.


 


 

Sweep every day!


 


 

Vacuum every few days. When vacuuming vinyl, do not use a “beater bar” attachment; this can damage the flooring surface.



Clean up spills immediately!



Mop your floors every few days to clean up any dirt that the vacuum did not get.

Shaw Industries Releases 2014 Sustainability Report

shaw

Recently, Shaw Industries released their 2014 Sustainability Report. Shaw shifted to the Global Reporting Initiative’s newest G4 standard converged with a notable increase in the demand for supply chain transparency surrounding product ingredients across the flooring industry. Shaw was prepared for the shift after designing for Cradle to Cradle Certified product standards. The company is continuing to develop innovative sustainability solutions to create a better future for its customers, associates, and communities.

“In the past 2 years, we have committed $540 million in capital investments to enhance our operations, including $350 million in expansions,” said Vance Bell, chairman and CEO, Shaw Industries. “These initiatives in infrastructure, equipment, advanced technology, and product development will get underway throughout 2015 and 2016, and result in 1,000 new jobs in the coming years – this is the kind of innovation that creates a more sustainable future.”

Shaw’s holistic approach to sustainability is that every material, every process, and every action is designed for a better future.

The new report outlines significant initiatives such as:

Product Stewardship
Shaw announced a more than $20 million investment in a new recycling facility in Ringgold, GA. This new facility is called Evergreen Ringgold, and it will be the first of its kind to recycle nylon as well as polyester carpet. This expansion to Shaw’s recycling capabilities builds upon the company’s efforts that have resulted in the collection and recycling of more than 800 million pounds of post-consumer carpet since 2006.

Material Use
Shaw takes the utmost care to ensure that the materials that go into its products are both safe and environmentally responsible. In 2014, 66 percent of the sales of Shaw manufactured products were Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver.

Branding and Marketing
Shaw is committed to communicating responsibly and regularly about its products and the company’s approach to sustainability. Through its commitment to Cradle to Cradle and numerous other sustainability standards and reporting tools, Shaw employs labels and certifications as credible evidence of the company’s commitment to transparency and third-party verification and to help facility product purchase decisions.

Talent Management
Shaw recognized the changing needs of its people and its business and identified key leadership characteristics that will be important in Shaw’s success moving forward. Shaw also began to establish more formal opportunities for its associates to support each other through affinity groups such as the Women’s Innovation Network (WiN) and ShawVET. These and other efforts resulted in Shaw being named number eight on the Forbes’ inaugural list of America’s Best Employers.

13 Ways to Keep your Flooring Clean this Summer

Just like your mom said “Take off your muddy or wet shoes before entering the house!” We also suggest making a habit of taking off your shoes when you get home. Its good for your floor and your health. Mom was right! But there are other things you can do to keep you floor clean, beautiful, safe, and clean!


Sweep daily for hard surface floors to remove dust and pet hair. Daily sweep keeps hair and dust from wearing the surface of all floors. Use a damp mop to clean up any dirt that the broom did not get.


Vacuum every few days for carpet. When vacuuming vinyl, do not use a “beater bar” attachment; this can damage the flooring surface.


Place area mats at all of the entrances to the home. Make sure the mats have a rubber backing so no moisture will soak through the mat to the floor.


Clean up any spills immediately!


If there are any tough spots on your laminate flooring, which can be caused by oil, paint, markers, ink, or etc., then you can use acetone/nail polish remover on a white cloth to clean the spot.


If you get mud on the carpet, allow the mud to dry completely. After it has dried, shatter the mud with the handle of a knife, then vacuum as normal.


Sand can cause your tile flooring to become dull looking if it is not cleaned off regularly. Clean tile with a mild detergent and clean water with a rag or chamois-type mop rather than a sponge mop.


Be sure to clean up any water off your tile flooring so you will not have anyone slipping or falling in the house after being in the pool.


After swimming in the pool or playing in the water fountain, be sure to dry off completely or as much as you can before entering the house so you do not get water on the floor. Water is not your floors’ friend; no matter what kind it is!
