It's vitally important to me that I not only develop the premier flooring information site, but that I make a contribution to moving the Internet towards accessibility for the approximately 60 million people with some form of disability in this country alone.
Las Vegas (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Filling a glaring void in the realm of flooring information, Las Vegas-based FindAnyFloor.com launched yesterday. The brainchild of successful flooring and tech entrepreneur Damien Patton, the site brings together flooring customers and flooring professionals and aims to give consumers the most comprehensive information source available for purchasing or maintaining virtually any kind of floor surface.
"I was on WebMD.com and I thought to myself: Where's the WebMD of flooring? Where's the all-knowing information service?" said Patton, explaining how FindAnyFloor.com came to be. "I started looking at other industries and they had similar information websites. I checked the flooring industry and every site I found was either biased due to commercial interests or other factors. And all of them combined didn't equal what FindAnyFloor.com has become today."
Carefully indexed for easy navigation, FindAnyFloor.com guides the visitor through the various aspects of bamboo, carpet, cork, hardwood, stone, vinyl and other floors. They will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each, suitability to their particular climate, allergy friendliness and other very practical considerations, all presented in simple language and lay terms.
FindAnyFloor.com also boasts handy buying and installation guides, a glossary of flooring terms, and a listing of frequently asked questions (FAQs). A cornerstone of the site is the "Find It Locally" tool: By entering their zip code, site visitors can find over 60,000 flooring retailers, installers and cleaners -- all conveniently listed and flagged on a Google map. This makes FindAnyFloor.com a great place for flooring pros to get listed -- which they can do for free.
Rolling out on August 18 will be the partner site Pro.FindAnyFloor.com, aimed at industry professionals, while September will see the unveiling Green.FindAnyFloor.com, showing Patton's commitment to environmental responsibility. In addition, all three sites will be Section 508 compliant by the end of the year -- meaning that they will be fully accessible to people with disabilities.
Said Patton: "It's vitally important to me that I not only develop the premier flooring information site, but that I make a contribution to moving the Internet towards accessibility for the approximately 60 million people with some form of disability in this country alone."
