Our Experts

Flooring Specialist

John Gaines, Flooring Specialist

John is a native RVA’er and a veteran salesman at L&M, having started in the spring of 1989.  He has seen many trends come and go and would like to say that he has “been there, done that, seen it,” but there is always something new and exciting to see and learn.  He specializes in flooring installations for insurance restoration and has worked in this field for nearly fifteen years, helping families return to “normal” after often-tragic events and often dealing directly with their insurance carriers.


When asked what he likes most about working at L&M Carpet One Floor and Home, he replied “I truly enjoy helping my insurance customers get their feet back on solid floors. Water, storm, fire and the many other forms of damage can leave a customer’s home and business in complete disarray. So when I’m able to exceed expectations by providing beautiful new floors in an organized fashion, going home at the end of the day is that much more gratifying.”

Outside of L&M, John likes to participate with his family in his church’s music program and other church activities and work on his cars (both full-size and scale models).

Kameron Moore, Flooring Specialist

Kameron joined our team in 2021 and specializes in guiding his customers to the perfect flooring for their home and lifestyle. Through other positions, he has learned the importance of managing multiple aspects of a project in order for it to run smoothly from start to finish as well as team work and communication.


When asked what he loves about working in flooring, he states, What I love most is the change I can help bring to someone’s life! For some, new flooring is a necessity due to circumstance, but for others it’s a matter of self-expression. I understand that when you’ve lived on the same floor for 15+ years, a change can seem pretty daunting! That’s why I am happy to use my position and expertise to guide my customers in a way that prioritizes long term happiness!”


Outside of work, Kameron loves to exercise, play music, and make music videos. In fact, he is working on learning his fifth instrument! One day he hopes to create something that touches the souls of others the same way music and movies have impacted him!
