When you think of “durable” carpet, you probably think of the flat, tightly woven rugs that cover the floors of restaurants, doctor’s offices and schools. Sure – it stands up against a lot of foot traffic… but it’s not something you’d ever put in your own home!
That’s why we were excited to try Mohawk’s SmartStrand carpeting. A huge sample arrived last week, and we were amazed at how soft and fluffy it was – especially after hearing about the rhino and elephant traffic that this kind of carpet has been tested with. (Yeah – elephants and a rhino… check out the story below!)
Plus – they’ve figured out COLOR… and you know how much we love color!

SmartStrand has Permanent Stain and Soil Resistance.
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.
SmartStrand is Extremely Easy to Clean.
Say goodbye to carpet cleaners! You don’t have to use any harsh chemicals or carpet cleaners to remove stains from SmartStrand carpet. All you need is a dishrag, some warm water, and mild detergent, like dish soap. Even tough stains, like ketchup, mustard, red Kool-Aid, and even red wine will clean easily out of SmartStrand carpet. Almost everyone has a flooring horror story, but with SmartStrand there’s no need to worry. This carpet is rated #1 in consumer satisfaction. SmartStrand consumer reviews on the MohawkFlooring[dot]come website back that claim up, too.
SmartStrand is Very Durable.
Mohawk held a SmartStrand Zoo Challenge. Mohawk carpeted the rhino enclosure at a popular zoo in Birmingham, Alabama. Ricko the Rhino lived on this carpet for 2 weeks! When all was said and done, Mohawk removed the carpet from Ricko’s home, had it professionally cleaned using only hot water extraction…and the carpet looked good as new! The next year, they took it even further and had six African elephants at the Dallas Zoo live on SmartStrand carpet for two weeks…and the result was the same. SmartStrand carpet is super durable. Strong enough for actual wildlife…and strong enough for YOUR wild life, too!
