Interest in cork flooring has grown over the years. Cork flooring is made from sustainable materials, which makes it a green product, and it comes in a large variety of colors and patterns.
Cork flooring is soft and warm to the touch, which makes it great for rooms where you will be standing for long periods of time. It holds up well in high traffic areas. Cork flooring also absorbs sound, and it reduces heat loss in your home. In addition, you can install cork flooring with adhesives or a click-and-lock system.
When purchasing carpets, cushions, and adhesives, you should always check for the green label/green label plus. The Green Label program was launched by The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) in 1992. They created this program to test which carpets, cushions, and adhesives have the lowest emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Recently, CRI has created an improved program called the Green Label Plus. The Green Label Plus program sets a higher standard of indoor air quality (IAQ), and it makes sure that customers are purchasing the very lowest emitting products on the market today. The Green Label Plus program shows that the carpet industry is working to make a better environment for living, working, learning, and healing.
Buying bamboo flooring will still give your home the look of wood floors without the high price. Bamboo flooring is one of the most environmentally friendly flooring because bamboo trees grow quickly compared to other trees. Most trees used in flooring take decades but bamboo trees can be harvested in four to six years. In addition, only a few varieties of bamboo are used for flooring so the environment is not affected by the harvesting.
Don’t worry, no pandas are hurt because of bamboo flooring.

We have searched the catalogs of America’s best manufacturers for styles that are unbelievably affordable. These collections feature full color-lines, exciting patterns and styles as low as $0.88 a square foot. Recently Carpet Express developed a program that utilizes another approach to getting cheap prices on quality carpet. This line starts at the unbelievable price of $0.60 a square foot. We call it the eColor Collection.
Our eColor carpet is American made, stain proof, fuzz proof, fade proof, and comes with 10-15 year wear warranties. Styles with these specs would normally sell for much higher, but there is a big difference. eColor carpet fiber is made with a streamlined state-of-the-art manufacturing process. Furthermore, we have limited these collections to the most popular colors. So instead of creating 30-50 colors, we specialize on 5-10 popular colors.

From wholesale customers, rental property managers, to residential homes at every price range, our customers have fallen in love with these dependable and affordable products. Shop online today.

From October 7th to October 21st, Mohawk is again putting their Smartstand carpet fiber to the test. They are putting the carpet against African Elephants! With a collective weight of over 50,000 pounds, Mohawk is claiming it is the equivalent of 650 10-year-old children!
Mohawk has really hit a home run with Smartstrand. We are very excited about these products. Smartstrand carpet with DuPont Sorona leads innovation in sustainable flooring with its “renewably sourced polymer.” Just in case “renewable sourced polymer” sounds too technical to you (as it did to me), all it means is that the carpet fiber is largely made of corn sugar. For me and the rest of us at Carpet Express, this is very exciting. This corn sugar sourced ingredient, “Bio-PDO,” is not just great because it comes from a renewable source, but it also directly reduces the need of petroleum in polymer production. Say that three times fast!
By using the natural sugar found in corn, 37% of Sorona is being made from renewable resources. Smartstrand is a one of a kind soft soft soft carpet fiber, it offers durability and stain protection, and it is making less of an environmental impact. Talk about having your cake and eating it to!
Smartstrand carpet fiber requires 30% less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon. Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63% lower than nylon manufacturing. This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square yards of carpet.
Fact: Every seven yards of SmartStrand saves enough energy and resources to equal the equivalent of one gallon of gasoline!
