Carpet Outlet Flooring Center has local home and business owners covered when it comes to building or upgrading a structure, and continues to roll out storewide deals to help Hawaii residents upgrade or refresh their flooring systems.

And, while it’s easy to find quality name brand flooring products at contractors’ prices at Carpet Outlet, you don’t have to be a contractor to stretch your dollar while shopping for the latest styles and varieties that have industry veterans and first-time buyers buzzing with excitement.

The public is welcome to visit Carpet Outlet’s expansive warehouse, which is fully stocked with more than 100 varieties of flooring products. Carpet Outlet features a vast inventory of area rugs, carpet remnants, carpet tiles and rug cushions, ceramic and porcelain tile, engineered hardwood, wood laminate, vinyl wood planks and luxury vinyl tile as well as numerous other options — including carpet selections, of course — to address flooring needs in every room. Customers will feel at ease when working with the experienced staff at Carpet Outlet as the flooring experts have more than 40 years of cumulative experience in the industry.

Situated conveniently in Salt Lake across from Target, Carpet Outlet allows customers to come in and roll out with the right flooring selection via assistance from an experienced, friendly staff. While the location does not provide installation services — this allows Carpet Outlet to keep its prices low — interested customers are provided with referrals to qualified independent flooring installers. And, in case one wishes to special order a product, the wait time ranges from just two to four weeks — half the time it takes to order via competitors.

Customers continue to clamor for waterproof vinyl planks and wood laminate styles, which now feature waterproof cores and are perfect in areas such as the kitchen or restroom where potential flooding caused by overflowing drains, sinks or toilets would typically be catastrophic. The environmentally safe and pet friendly flooring types are ideal for families with children and animals, and feature resilient 12- or 20-mil wear layers, which represent .33 to .50 millimeters of durable wear-layer protection that thwart warping or buckling.

More manufacturers also are constructing the waterproof planks with an underlayment layer attached, which makes the installation process much more efficient. These flooring options are readily available at Carpet Outlet, come in a multitude of styles and colors and are great for high-traffic areas, thus making them easy to maintain and stain- resistant across both residential and commercial applications.“These luxury vinyl planks and tiles serve as ideal flooring options, especially for families here in Hawaii,” note the Carpet Outlet flooring experts. “Not only do you have peace of mind with 100 percent waterproof options, but the protection against wear and damage is outstanding. The entire family, including keiki and pets, can enjoy the many flooring options we have to offer.”

Homeowners may also select from some of the world’s softest — yet durable — carpet varieties to address traffic in various rooms and spaces. Carpeting has evolved to feature a host of consumer- friendly characteristics, including soft fibers that don’t shed or fade and stain resistance and waterproof backings that make addressing spills much easier than in the past. Unlike other carpets that are treated with stain repellents, varieties like Mohawk SmartStrand Forever Clean offer permanent, built-in stain protection. This durable, child- and pet-friendly “Nanoloc” carpet is easy to clean with mild detergent and includes a warranty that covers “all pets, all accidents, all the time.”

These innovative carpet styles also feature solution-dyed fibers that help colors remain true even in Hawaii’s harsh sunlight; much like a carrot, the fibers retain color throughout when compared to traditional fibers that were likened to a radish with red on the outside and white below the surface layer. “The multiple varieties of carpet available at Carpet Outlet offer the ultimate in comfort and durability, while also providing added benefits including excellent acoustics within a home,” according to the flooring experts at Carpet Outlet Flooring Center. “These options make for the softest carpet you have ever felt in between your toes!”

Carpet Outlet’s showroom offers convenient hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday; 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
