This past weekend I got a chance to hang out at A Taste of Colorado festival and Mohawk Flooring happened to be there on their License to Spill tour and Sam’s No. 3 was serving breakfast burritos with green chili at the License to Spill booth. I’ve worked with Mohawk Flooring before, in a review with one of their area rugs, and a year later I still love our rug. It’s held up great and is easy to clean with all the messes my 3 year old likes to make, like the time she poured a bottle of glue on said area rug and then glued paper and a sweater to the rug. The only difference with the area rug I have from Mohawk is that it isn’t part of their SmartStrand collection of carpets that are stain resistant.
The SmartStrand carpets are the ONLY carpet with built-in stain and soil resistance that will NEVER wear or wash off. I don’t know much about carpets, but I learned that all other “stain resistant” carpets don’t have this awesome technology and most carpets have stain and soil treatments that are applied topically to the fiber. Over time, in the face of foot traffic, and due to wear and tear, the topically applied stain and soil treatment wears off. This can leave ordinary carpets looking worn out and dirty sooner than you might expect for such a large purchase. With SmartStrand, you don’t have to worry about that. For as long as you have the carpet, it will have stain protection because it is built into the carpet fiber itself. The SmartStrand carpets are super easy to clean and almost all messes are cleanable with just water and tougher stains can be removed with just water and a mild detergent. How cool is that? Everything from dirt, nail polish, red wine, and even mustard can be cleaned up quickly and easily! This carpet is rated #1 in consumer satisfaction.
At the License to Spill booth they had samples of the SmartStrand carpets for people to try out just how easy it is to clean the carpet. The toddler had a blast making a mess that she wouldn’t be getting in trouble for and then cleaning it up with just water. Seeing just how easily these carpets cleaned up has me sold and some other bonuses are how soft the SmartStrand Silk is along with the selection of different patterns, textures, and colors. This is a must have carpet in a home with kids, pets, and messy husbands! We plan on buying a house within the next year and I already told my husband that we’re getting these carpets for whatever house we get.
