WOTV 4 women’s interior remodeling expert Jan Lehman shares her new favorite carpet brand to replace your old carpet after winter wear and tear.
If this winter has been exceptionally hard on your flooring, it might be time to think about new carpet. And believe me, I know there are SO many choices of carpet to pick from so let me give you some pointers on one of the new favorites at Standale Interiors.
MOHAWK SMARTSTRAND WITH DUPONT SORONA – quite a mouthful I know. But every word is important to all the benefits the carpet offers you. And in 2012, Better Homes and Garden magazine named it the #1 GROUNDBREAKER for softness and use of new fibers – this one is made from corn!
SmartStrand is a broadloom carpet that addresses all of the concerns of carpet – durability, stain resistance, style, softness, and eco-friendliness.
BEAUTIFUL STYLES: the color choice far surpasses most carpet collections. They offer luxurious friezes, beautiful berbers and some stunning patterns. Most styles offer a look that is contemporary yet classic so you don’t have to worry that it will be outdated in 10 years.
INCREDIBLE SOFTNESS: Different styles will offer varying degrees of softness of course. Longer, looser piles are the most luxurious but even the looped styles have an amazing feel. And Mohawk recently introduced SmartStrand with SILK for an even softer, plusher feel.
HIGH PERFORMANCE: How well? According to our customers who have purchased it – extremely well! It is highly resilient and Mohawks backs up those claims with 15-25 year warranties for texture retention, abrasive wear and fade resistance.
EASY TO CLEAN: SmartStrand features a lifetime stain and soil warranty so why wouldn’t you like that?! It’s amazingly easy to clean with only water. Even some of carpet’s worst enemies – red wine, mustard, bleach and pet accidents – will not harm or stain the fiber. The stain protection is BUILT INTO the fiber, not just sprayed on after production- so it’s permanent. It’s also fade resistant so it’s safe to install in an area with direct exposure to sunlight.
