Mohawk SmartStrand Carpet Made with Triexta – More than Smart, it's Genius!
Mohawk is putting its SmartStrand Carpet made with triexta fiber to the ultimate test with Ricko the Rhino. Ricko lives at the Birmingham Zoo, weighs in at 2,800 pounds and his 1,040 sq ft pad is now covered in SmartStrand carpeting. Ricko will be living on this amazing carpet for two weeks in order to show the world this Mohawk carpeting is tough enough to withstand even his lifestyle! Look at what Mohawk SmartStrand carpet made with triexta offers:
- Chemically known as Triexta, SmartStrand carpet is made with DuPont Sorona polymer – a renewable polymer made in part from corn which replaces petroleum based products. Because of this, 37% of Sorona is produced using renewal resources and its production requires 30% less energy than an equal amount of nylon 6 carpeting.
- SmartStrand is more than eco–friendly carpet. SmartStrand triexta has stain resistant protection built into every carpet fiber so it won't wash off or wear off. SmartStrand can take on even the toughest of stains like mustard, red wine and even bleach. If this stain resistant carpet can stand up to a rhino, imagine how it will perform in your home!
- SmartStrand carpet by Mohawk seems to have a mind of its own by offering everything one would want in a carpet. It's soft, durable, eco–friendly, beautiful, lush, and is available in many colors and styles. And who knows, after seeing Ricko enjoying it so much, maybe you'll get Fido some Mohawk SmartStrand too. Being sent to the dog house might not be so bad after all.
