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.

Fall Home Decor – Shaw Frieze Rugs

shawFall is a great time of the year to purchase a new rug for your home. Shaw carpet has a large variety of carpet that can be made into area rugs, but for fall I would recommend frieze carpet. Frieze carpet is tightly twisted yarn which gives this style a bouncy and shaggier appearance than traditional cut pile. This carpet type is durable and will perform well.

Best Pet Friendly Carpet

Carpet and pets used to never get along well in the home, but now there are some great pet friendly carpet options. Shaw, Mohawk, Dixie Home, Tuftex, Engineered Floors, and Dreamweaver produce beautiful, durable, and pet friendly carpet.

shaw-lifeguard

 

Shaw’s pet friendly carpet is called the LifeGuard collection. LifeGuard is a revolutionary protection system that covers the entire product, from face fiber to backing. All of the LifeGuard carpets are treated with Shaw’s patented R2X Stain and Soil Resistance protection. In addition, the thermoplastic backing gives the carpet a waterproof barrier that prevents liquids from soaking into the carpet padding and the subfloor.

The LifeGuard’s patented backing system keeps liquids from seeping into the carpet backing, which allows for an easier cleanup and protection against odor-causing spills and pet accidents. Since the liquid will stay on top of the carpet and not soak through the backing, you will have more time to discover the spill and clean it up.

Mohawk’s pet friendly carpet is the SmartStrand Forever Clean collection, which features the new All Pet Protection and Warranty. The new warranty covers all pets and all accidents. SmartStrand Forever Clean has a Nanoloc layer, which is designed specificaly to make triexta easier to clean and maintain. The Nanoloc formula adheres to the fiber and it also allows flexibility so that the carpet will be soft to the touch. In other words, Nanoloc is an advanced spill-resistant shield made from nano-particles that seamlessly lock together, which prevents dirt and spills from settling into the carpet. Also, the unique fiber structure and Nanoloc shield make vacuuming dirt, fur, and pet dander easier.
