Wonderful! You’ve finally decided on carpet, but the whole idea is overwhelming. After all, you hear about things like a carpet installation being as important, if not more so, than the actual product. Then there’s also the idea of professional carpet cleaning; manufacturer warranties insist upon it, but how complicated is it?
Good news for Dayton, Ohio. Bockrath Flooring & Rugs is your one-stop-shopping center, so we make the whole carpet stores experience as easy as possible. You don’t just buy the product here, because we also offer all the services you need.
Bockrath Flooring & Rugs: Carpet Stores with a Long History
The personal touch is important to current owner Doug Bockrath and his wife, Erin. This family has been in the flooring industry for almost 95 years. It all started in 1925 when Doug’s grandfather, Vic Bockrath Sr. became flooring manager for Rike Kumler Co., when he was just 21 years-old.
Then,in 1955, he started his own company, where he did about 15 carpet repairs a week, and taught his sons, Vic Jr. and Ed, the flooring business. In 1970, Vic Jr. and Ed opened their first storefront at 1924 Brown Street. Doug, Vic Jr’s son, joined the firm in 1994, and started the one-of-a-kind Rug Gallery in 2015.
Rug Gallery: Getting the Carpet Installation Right the First Time
One of the biggest problems we hear from customers is that they shop, get the flooring home, and then only find out during installation, that it doesn’t fit properly.
You come into our rug gallery, choose among the extensive inventory, give us the room measurements and we cut, bind and serge right there on the spot. You can watch if you want. Now, these days no room is a perfect square; there are baseboards, closets and other things to contend with, so talk to us, and we’ll arrange for one of our pros to come over to do it right.
We also offer:
● Lifetime carpet installation guarantee, for the duration of manufacturer’s warranty, including lifetime.
● Certified carpet cleaners (Remember, most warranties now stipulate that you must clean your carpet professionally at least every 12 to 18 months.)
● Certified vacuums and products, all manufacturer-approved, to help you keep your floors always looking great.
● Wool care: Sustainable scientific research give the utmost efficiency and environmental protection to this natural fiber.
And if you’re especially concerned about the environment, no worries. Many are green label plus-approved! Still have questions? Come into the Dayton, Ohio showroom at Bockrath Flooring & Rugs, so we can tell you more.
