Benefits of SmartStrand Carpets

Summer is a fun time of the year because there are barbecues, pool parties, background sports games, and many more fun activities. However, there are some worries about bringing in mud from summer rain showers or spills from food from cookouts. You do not have to worry with these carpets from Mohawk. These carpets have built-in stain and soil resistance that will never wear or wash off. So you do not have to stress over any spills from food or drinks.
In addition, you do not have to worry about messes from pets because SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets feature Mohawk’s new all pet protection warranty. The built-in Nanoloc spill and soil shield provides easy cleanup and lifetime stain protection. The Forever Clean carpet repels liquid and has a 0% moisture absorption rate.
Recently Mohawk tested their SmartStrand carpet for two weeks in a rhino enclosure at the Birmingham Zoo. For two weeks, Max the rhino lived in an enclosure with a carpet floor instead of dirt. Max’s enclosure was lined with two types of carpet. On one side of the enclosure was Mohawk’s SmartStrand Silk Forever Clean carpet, and only the other side was a soft nylon carpet.
After two weeks, a professional cleaning crew was brought in to clean the two types of carpet. When the cleaning was complete, Mohawk’s SmartStrand Silk Forever Clean carpet looked brand new, and the soft nylon carpet was still dirty and looked matted.
Here is a picture of the carpets after being cleaned:
SmartStrand carpets from Mohawk have built-in stain and soil resistance that never washes or wears off. These carpets have a high level of durability and softness, which will make your home even more comfortable. SmartStrand carpets from Mohawk are able to withstand all kinds of foot traffic and household action without any problems. For example, SmartStrand carpets were able to withstand foot traffic from a rhino, an elephant, and a camel in enclosures at a zoo for weeks. The carpets cleaned well and bounced back after having 50,000 pounds of constant animal pressure.

From October 7th to October 21st, Mohawk is again putting their Smartstand carpet fiber to the test. They are putting the carpet against African Elephants! With a collective weight of over 50,000 pounds, Mohawk is claiming it is the equivalent of 650 10-year-old children!
Mohawk has really hit a home run with Smartstrand. We are very excited about these products. Smartstrand carpet with DuPont Sorona leads innovation in sustainable flooring with its “renewably sourced polymer.” Just in case “renewable sourced polymer” sounds too technical to you (as it did to me), all it means is that the carpet fiber is largely made of corn sugar. For me and the rest of us at Carpet Express, this is very exciting. This corn sugar sourced ingredient, “Bio-PDO,” is not just great because it comes from a renewable source, but it also directly reduces the need of petroleum in polymer production. Say that three times fast!
By using the natural sugar found in corn, 37% of Sorona is being made from renewable resources. Smartstrand is a one of a kind soft soft soft carpet fiber, it offers durability and stain protection, and it is making less of an environmental impact. Talk about having your cake and eating it to!
Smartstrand carpet fiber requires 30% less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon. Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63% lower than nylon manufacturing. This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square yards of carpet.
Fact: Every seven yards of SmartStrand saves enough energy and resources to equal the equivalent of one gallon of gasoline!
