Carpeting adds warmth and comfort to your home. Some carpets, however, are better than others. At Express Flooring in Arizona, Mohawk SmartStrand has become one of our favorite options. Our customers love having SmartStrand in their homes.
If you plan to replace your carpet soon, you’ll need to know these top five reasons to choose Mohawk SmartStrand for your home.
1. Your Kids Can’t Stain SmartStrand
You probably think that your kids can ruin any carpet. SmartStrand’s stain-resistance will surprise you.
A lot of companies treat carpet strands to resist stains. Mohawk goes a step further by making each strand completely stain-resistant.
Mohawk can make SmartStrand so resilient because it uses Nanoloc, a technology that uses ultra-fine nanoparticles to block stains and dirt.
The next time your kid spills a glass of grape juice on the floor, you won’t freak out about stains. You’ll just get a towel and clean up the mess. You don’t have to hurry because Nanoloc protects your Smartstrand carpet from damage.
Side note: you still might want to discipline your kid for carelessly spilling grape juice. Not every home has the benefit of SmartStrand’s stain protection.
2. Not Even Your Pets Can Hurt SmartStrand
Have a puppy that hasn’t learned its manners, yet? Training your dog is important, but you don’t have to put up with stains when your pet has an accident.
Mohawk gave proof of that back in 2009 when it let a rhino spend the day on SmartStrand carpet. If you’ve been to a zoo, you know the kind of mess that an adult rhino can make. You can smell them from the zoo’s parking lot.
The company put its carpet to the test again in 2017 by introducing Max, a 5,400-pound rhino, to SmartStrand carpet. Max spent two weeks going about his business on the carpet. At the end of the experiment, Mohawk had the SmartStrand carpet cleaned by a professional.
The carpet looked brand new. If a huge rhino can’t destroy SmartStrand, then your new Goldendoodle doesn’t have a chance.
3. You’ve Never Felt Carpet This Soft
Carpet that a rhinoceros can’t damage? It must feel awfully rough to take that kind of torture, right?
Actually, Mohawk has been on a mission to make its SmartStrand carpets softer and softer over the years.
We’ve pointed out before that Mohawk uses a polymer fiber called triexta. This type of fiber makes SmartStrand much softer than traditional carpet fibers.
What does more comfort mean for you?
It could mean:
- More family board game nights spent on the floor.
- Your kids entertain themselves more often by building blanket forts.
- Stretching out on the floor to enjoy movies.
- Exercising at home without rubbing your knees raw on a rough floor.
Once you have Express Flooring install your new SmartStrand carpet, you’ll find plenty of reasons to spend more time on your floor.
4. SmartStrand Doesn’t Contain Any Harmful Substances
Laying on a soft carpet probably sounds like a nice idea… until you remember that many carpets emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for five years or longer after installation.
In the short-term, exposure to VOCs can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, and some other annoying side effects. With enough exposure, VOCs will increase your family’s risk of getting lymphoma, leukemia, and even hearing loss.
You don’t have those worries with Mohawk SmartStrand. Mohawk proved this by getting its carpet certified by OEKO-TEX. The certification shows that SmartStrand doesn’t contain or release any harmful substances.
You can’t tell whether a carpet emits dangerous chemicals by looking at it. You need to test the fibers in a lab. The OEKO-TEX certification shows that you feel comfortable and worry-free when you and your children lie on the carpet.
5. You’ll Spend Less Time Cleaning Your House
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American spends more than an hour each day cleaning. Those hours add up quickly. By the end of the most months, you’ve spent 30 hours washing clothes, dusting furniture, and vacuuming carpet.
With SmartStrand carpet, you’ll notice that you devote less of your time to household chores.
Since SmartStrand resists dirt, pet dander, dust, and other allergens, you can clean your carpets very quickly. Instead of covering the same dirty spot three or four times, you just run your vacuum over the carpet once to get the job done.
SmartStrand may reduce the time that you spend dusting. Since the carpet doesn’t hold on to dust like many nylon carpets do, you can expect less airborne dust in your house.
Unfortunately, SmartStrand can’t do anything about laundry. You’re on your own with that one.
