Calhoun, Ga.—As the official flooring sponsor of Fox’s hit show “Home Free,” Mohawk carpet, rugs, hardwood and laminate flooring will welcome home the families of heroes in the second season of the series. “Home Free” is an unscripted competition and reality TV series hosted by expert professional contractor Mike Holmes. The season premiere aired June 16.
Former NFL player and sports analyst Tim Tebow will join Holmes in the DIY competition program this season in which “Home Free” challengers will compete to win a dream home for their personal heroes and $100,000 for themselves.
Each week, Holmes presents contestants with tasks designed to test their knowledge and DIY skills. Couples with the best work move forward while those with sub-par performance must face elimination.
“‘Home Free’ provides a powerful national platform to communicate Mohawk’s style, design and ease-of-installation benefits,” said Mollie Surratt, Mohawk’s senior director of public relations, social media and content. “Mohawk is proud to place our carpet, rugs, hardwood flooring and laminates in the homes of these deserving heroes and equip Mohawk retailers to share this great integration in-store.”
This season, contestants were building not one house but a whole neighborhood. House styles varied from Victorian and Cape Cod to French Country and Southern Dream Home. In addition to carpet and area rugs, contestants selected several hardwood and laminate Mohawk products to give their projects warmth, fashion and resilience.
