MANCHESTER, N.H., Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Carpet One Floor & Home was honored to participate in a recent home makeover for Laurel, an inspiring woman born with no arms. Laurel was featured on an episode of Emmy® Award-winning daytime talk show The Doctors that aired on October 19. Her highlight video shared how she has overcome many of life's obstacles and remained positive. "You don't know what you're able to do until you try it," she stated matter-of-factly during an exclusive interview with The Doctors hosts.

It's safe to say Laurel has tried many things and quite often, she succeeds. Laurel is a single mom and student. She has learned how to do practically everything with her feet. She types, writes, cooks, cleans, and even drives a car. She takes care of her children and maintains her household without assistance.

When asked by the hosts if there was anything she couldn't do, she shared that there are some things that are extremely challenging. "Have you ever tried to vacuum with your neck?"

It was this challenge that Carpet One Floor & Home was able to help with. To eliminate the challenge of vacuuming carpeting, the flooring retailer replaced all Laurels floors with Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring. Also referred to as Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP), LVT is a type of vinyl flooring that looks like tile or hardwood. It is durable and easy to clean. Laurel will have a much easier time maintaining her floors with her feet. "The maintenance free and easy cleaning is very helpful," Laurel commented after receiving her new floors.

The flooring was donated by Carpet One Floor & Home and installed by independently owned Wall-to-Wall Carpet One Floor & Home. The donated floors also included Carpet One Floor & Home's exclusive Healthier Living Installation. This installation system delivers antimicrobial protection for your flooring while minimizing dust, and inhibiting allergens, mold growth and odors. "I feel like I'm living a healthier life after the healthier living installation," Laurel said of the Healthier Living Installation process.

"It's been a very eye-opening experience," said Chad Johnson of Wall to Wall Carpet One. "No one deserves it more than Laurel."

In addition to new flooring, The Doctors also surprised Laurel with an Aspen ski trip for some much-needed relaxation as well as heated windshield wipers to make her winters easier.
