Floor care products represent an excellent opportunity for ancillary profits. The products should be provided when the flooring is installed, and then sold to the consumer to keep the floor looking brand new.

This type of product can also help position retailers as an expert, and offers the consumer peace of mind that they are in the right hands when it comes to their floor covering needs. Additionally, the product can be a great advertising vehicle for the retailer’s store, since many floor care programs give retailers the option to have their store information printed on the label.

Following are some of the options available for floor care products. For more, visit our online Trade Directory + Buying Guide atwww.ntlfloortrends.com/buyingguideand browse under the product category “Floor Care Products.”
