Mohawk SmartStrand – Durability to the Max

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:

Selecting The Right Vacuum for Mohawk Carpet


Regular vacuuming extends your carpet’s life, so picking the correct type of vacuum cleaner is essential. Each vacuum’s performance varies based on the carpet’s fiber type and construction. A good quality vacuum typically has features that allow you to adjust the height, beater bar rotation, and fan speed. Vacuums with large wheels, self-propelled vacuums, and/or specialty tools can also help ensure easy and effective carpet maintenance.
Adjustable height is the most important feature for a vacuum because this enables the machine to be used on a wide variety of carpet constructions. If the vacuum is set too high above the carpet surface, the vacuum cannot attract the soil below. If the setting is too low, the vacuum’s beater bar or brushes can “fuzz” the carpet’s surface, which makes it look worn and frayed.

*When vacuuming high pile, wool, wool-blend, and premium soft carpets, look for the following features that will allow you to easily maintain your carpet:

  • Adjustable Height – Use the highest setting where appropriate.
  • Efficient Airflow – Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction.
  • Large Wheels – The vacuum should glide easily across the carpet.

*When vacuuming thick loop, casual frieze, or long pile carpet such as “shag,” you may need to completely disengage the beater bar and vacuum with suction only.
*For all other carpet constructions, which were not mentioned above, use a vacuum with a rotating brush or beater bar. Change the bags often and check the beater bars for burs and gouges to prevent damage to the surface of the carpet.

If you are unsure about the proper height setting, use an inconspicuous place like a closet to test your vacuum. Its beater bar or brush should just lightly touch your carpet surface. make sure it doesn’t dig into or gouge the carpet pile. You can also set the vacuum the same spot multiple times to check that there is no fraying or damage to the vacuumed area.
