Mohawk's Stain Resistant & Stain Proof Carpet

SmartStrand carpets resist all kinds of stains including hot coffee, red wine, mustard, soy sauce and red food coloring, even pet urine won’t stain SmartStrand carpets. With the permanent stain protection built right in directly to the fibers during the manufacturing process you can rest assured your carpet will resist almost anything you can spill on it for years to come.

SmartStrand carpet fiber is made from a renewable sourced polymer and is made in part with naturally occurring sugars from readily available and renewable crops. SmartStrand’s key fiber ingredient is Bio-PDO, produced from corn sugar. By utilizing this central ingredient, 37% of SmartStrand can be made from renewable resources instead of the more limited petrol-based ingredients that are used in most other nylon carpets. Production of just seven square yards of SmartStrand carpets saves enough energy to equal 1 gallon of gasoline.
In recent third-party testing, SmartStrand carpet fibers resisted regular household stains up to 50% more than leading nylon carpets. Tests performed using the identical methods to clean found SmartStrand carpets got up to 42% cleaner, leaving virtually no dirt and clearly reducing maintenance time. Homeowners agree with testers: more SmartStrand owners rated their carpets as dirt-resistant and easier to clean than other types of carpets.

The Mohawk SmartStrand Warranty

Mohawk warrants that the surface pile of this carpet will resist stains from all domestic pets including vomit, urine or feces, for the life of the carpet from the original date of installation. If above-mentioned stains are saturated and result in wicking, these stains will release with additional recleaning for the life of the carpet from the original date of installation. (Wicking is defined as a reappearance of previously cleaned stains due to liquid remaining in carpet backing or padding.) If permanent staining should occur that cannot be removed using recommended methods by a certified carpet-care professional, Mohawk will handle such claims as stated in the “Mohawk’s Limited Liability” section of the Mohawk Warranty Guide.
