Carpet is the trending floor covering for this year. And the trendsetter holdouts will be happy to hear that there is a 100% waterproof carpet now! It is everything a homeowner wants.


There are usually some big holdbacks for installing carpet in a home. Things like mold and dust allergies, pets – especially cats, children and mud season. But now all those things are irrelevant, because Shaw has invented a carpet that is waterproof. It is named Lifeguard.

Now when your cat starts urinating on the carpet instead of in the litterbox, it will sit there on the surface until you can wipe it. Once it is cleaned up there is no lingering smell from urine in the padding or subfloor, because it never soaked through the carpet.

Landlords should take note of this new carpet. It can save thousands of dollars in having to install carpet yet again after a tenant with a neglected pet. A good cleaning is all it will take for it to look and smell clean once again.

Children can no longer ruin a carpet by spilling milk in the living room. Instead of having to shampoo the carpet every month because of all the things they spill and track in from outside, a quick wipe takes care of it. Your floors will always look lovely with Lifeguard carpet.

Good news for those who love Stain master carpet. It is available with the Lifeguard backing now. You’ll be protected from liquids sinking through the carpet and from stains on top of the carpet. It is a good day for those joining in on the carpet trend in flooring. Give us a call at US Hardwood and Carpet to see when the next special on Lifeguard backed carpets will happen.
