MODULAR DIY CARPET TILES AFFORDABLE SOLUTION FOR
PET OWNERS
Easy to install, clean and replace

Louisville, Ky. -- Got pets? According to the latest pet owners survey from the American
Pet Products Association (APPA), 62 percent of U.S. households do.

Despite the down economy, Americans continue to spend money on their pets, an
estimated $50.84 billion this year alone, according APPA.

Pet owners are discovering products like carpet tiles from iCarpetiles.com, an
affordable DIY flooring product that’s easy to install, clean or replace – especially since
accidents, spills and dirt come with the territory.

“I have five cats and two dogs and carpet tile from iCarpetiles.com is great,” said S.
Marsh from LaVergne, TN. “Every pet owner in America should have them. They look
great and are easy to clean or replace.”

Simply vacuum the soiled tile; pull it up and wash with mild detergent under the sink; let
it dry and put it back down using double sided-tape. Tiles may also be rotated from high
traffic areas to moderate traffic areas to maximize wear and retain appearance.

Available in more than 1,500 colors and patterns, carpet tiles from iCarpetiles.com come
in 18-by 18-inch or 2-by 2-foot squares and are priced from just 49 cents to $1.99 per
square foot.

These aren’t your father’s carpet tiles. Originally introduced in the 1960’s, modular
carpet tiles were felt-like, flat and flimsy. They did not wear or clean well. Color and
pattern selections were limited.

Today’s DIY carpet tiles have evolved into sophisticated, functional products that
conceal seams and hide soil. A variety of styles and colors give consumers more options,
plus they’re an easy do-it-yourself flooring project.

“Customers from across the U.S. have installed carpet tiles in their basements,
playrooms, home offices, laundry rooms, recreational vehicles and even garages,” said
Eric Johnson, president of iCarpetiles.com.

Carpet tiles may be used over top of most smooth surfaces including hardwood,
particleboard, concrete, ceramic tile, laminate, or vinyl flooring. The tiles have a skid-
resistant vinyl backing, so no padding is required. All that’s needed is a chalk line,
straight edge, sharp utility knife, and double-sided tape.
