          Commitment to the Community


          At Scharm Floor Covering, we are active members of the community, committed to the growth and prosperity of our local economy and the interest of our clients and neighbors. Our commitment goes beyond our showroom to extend into the community. We reach out to support the good works of the City of Des Plaines, the Des Plaines and Arlington Heights Chambers of Commerce, and a variety of other community organizations.

          We lend a hand to our clients close to home turning our 40th anniversary celebration into a Carpet for a Cause Survivor Celebration where we raised over $4,000 for the Lutheran General Cancer Survivorship Center.

          As longstanding members of the community, we bring a personal touch to the services we provide to friends and neighbors.




          Our customers do not only tell their friends about their experience with Scharm Floor Covering, some are so pleased they have taken pen – and occasionally crayon – to paper to make certain that we are aware of the excellent service that was provided. Feel free to browse through our catalog of testimonials when you visit our showroom. We are proud of our impact on the community and families we have served.
