Shaw launches iPhone app
to fight carpet stains
Red wine. Tomato sauce. Coffee. Each of these items strikes fear in the hearts of homeowners with carpeted floors. As the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, Shaw Floors knows accidents can happen. Shaw also realizes quick, effective cleanup can make a difference in helping to keep carpets looking their best, and this prompted the company to create a new iPhone application that provides fast, clear access to detailed stain removal tips for hundreds of the most common carpet stains.
“Carpet stains can be one of the most frustrating cleaning projects for many homeowners,” said Kathy Young, Shaw’s creative director. “While consumers love the comfort and beauty that carpet brings to their homes, they dread the potential spills that can accompany an active lifestyle. By putting carpet cleaning information at their fingertips, our Carpet Stain Center app helps ease consumers’ minds about tackling spots should they occur.”
Addressing almost 1,000 stains, the application provides recommended cleaning techniques for everything from acne medication to yogurt. In addition to noting which cleaning solution may yield the best results for a particular stain, the app also suggests removal techniques tested at Shaw’s research facilities, including blotting, rinsing and scraping.
“While no carpet is stain-proof, applying appropriate cleaning techniques as soon as possible can help minimize its long-lasting effects,” said Dani Brock, Shaw’s Anso nylon marketing manager.
Compatible with both the iPhone and iPad, the free application can be found by searching for “Shaw Floors Carpet Stain Center” in the Apple online App Store.
