Tuftex and Disney Team Up on New Carpet Line

The Tuftex of California division of Shaw Floors and Disney Consumer Products are launching a new collection of wall-to-wall carpet based on some of Disney’s classic stories.

The non-character based line takes inspiration from some of the most well-known Disney franchises, including Disney Princess and Disney Fairies, Winnie the Pooh, the Disney∙Pixar films Cars and Toy Story, and Disney Channel’s hit series Hannah Montana.

The collection incorporates unique patterns, color treatments and design elements that subtly bring to life these Disney properties.

Winnie the Pooh is the basis for “Friendly Old Bear,” with a silhouette of the famous bear etched into the pattern. That’s one example of many in the series.

Each assortment has its own unique color palette to compliment other Disney Home interior products.

Floor Maintenance During The Holidays

With the holidays come lots of company and family in and out of your home. With that traffic comes potential abuse to your floors. Here are a few tips to remember during the holiday season to protect your floors from damage.

  • Be sure to have walk-off mats at every entrance. This traps the dirt before it enters your home and potentially scratches your floors.
  • Sweep and vacuum as often as possible. This will not only help your home look clean and bright, but it will help protect the floors as well.
  • Be cautious of holiday mats on vinyl floors. Check to see if any holiday mats have rubber backings. Rubber backed mats are not suitable for vinyl flooring.
  • Protect your flooring from candle wax. Candle wax can be difficult to remove.
  • Sweep holiday tree needles often. They can be as harmful to your floors as dirt.
  • If you feel comfortable asking people to take off their shoes, place a large basket for shoes at the front door encouraging people to remove their shoes. High heels can leave permanent marks on several different types of flooring.

Protecting your floors this holiday season can save you time and headaches after the holidays are over. Take a few extra precautions so you will have no worries about your flooring for the first of the new year!
