Mohawk is making waves in the carpet world with it’s SmartStrand® carpet fiber.
In a partnership with DuPont, this carpet exclusively offers fiber which is produced from corn sugar. Because Mohawk utilizes corn sugar in the production of SmartStrand, 37% of Sorona® is being made from renewable resources. This marks the first time that a luxuriously soft carpet offers durability and stain protection, while also making less of an environmental impact.
This carpet is environmentally smart because:
- The production of Sorona® polymer requires 30 percent less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon.
- Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63 percent lower than nylon manufacturing.
- This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square yards of carpet.
The superior stain resistance of SmartStrand carpet is engineered into the fiber and does not wear or wash off, meaning you will not need to re-treat the carpet with stain protectors. This engineered-in stain resistance allows tough stains such as mustard and red wine to be removed simply with warm water and a mild detergent, or with Mohawk FloorCare™ Essentials. The fiber even resists discoloration from bleach.
SmartStrand carpet is a great option for parents of small children and pet owners. It is also a great option for those of us in Colorado who are outdoor adventurers who track in dirt and who knows what else!
