DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2016/PRNewswire/ -- As Autumn brings school projects, muddy paws, crunchy leaves, holiday visitors and everyday messes, Pergo, the inventor of laminate flooring and one of the world's most recognized flooring brands, launches life-proof and water-resistant options with Pergo Outlast+™. "With Fall in full swing and holidays around the corner, it's an extremely busy and messy time," says Paij Thorn-Brooks, vice president of marketing for Pergo. "From dirty pets and kids crafts to muddy boots coming and going during the rainy and snowy seasons, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is how their floor is holding up." Thorn-Brooks suggests installing water-resistant flooring in rooms that get a lot of use like living areas, bedrooms, dining rooms and mud rooms. Products with extra liquid- and scratch-resistant features allow for less cleaning and more family time. "Outlast+ is extremely easy to install, so a room can be transformed during the holiday rush or before those last-minute guests arrive," she says. "The collection's rich hues such as deep chocolate, coffee, red tones or on-trend greys make a strong statement in every room, especially when paired with pops of Fall yellows or oranges." Pergo laminate and hardwood flooring are made from recycled wood and the highest quality materials that are safe for families and pets. All products are backed by a lifetime warranty.
