The Carpet That Gives You A License to Spill

When we first moved into our house, all the floors were covered in wall-to-wall carpeting. After some investigating, we realized that the carpeting was covering up gorgeous hard wood flooring upstairs. We ripped out the carpeting upstairs, but kept it downstairs. Maintaining the downstairs carpet though is a constant chore for me.

Having a clean carpet can make your home feel fresh. On the other hand, carpet that is worn and stained can make your home feel dirty no matter how much you clean. The problem that I too often run into is that keeping our carpet clean and fresh can be a daunting task. The carpeting downstairs in the family room. This room leads out to the backyard. Z.E.N. practically lives in the family room, and with that comes tons of spills. That, along with the amount of foot traffic going through that room and into the yard on a daily basis, makes it very difficult to keep up with the wear and tear. I get so frustrated because I can vacuum and use carpet cleaner every day and it still would not be enough. Even steam cleaning it does not get all the stains out. Honestly, I just don’t have time to be constantly worrying about and cleaning the carpet!

With this in mind, I am always looking for new products that will work better for our home. This past Saturday I ventured out to the Highlands Clam Festival in Highlands, NJ.

Besides good food and entertainment, I heard that Mohawk Flooring would be there to do their “License to Spill” demo. Mohawk Flooring has produced a carpet that will help all of us busy moms! Mohawk SmartStrand carpet is the only carpet that has built-in stain and soil resistance that will NEVER wear or wash off.

First off, I got a chance to meet HGTV and Food Network’s celebrity interior designer, Taniya Nayak, and Better Show host JD Roberto.

Next up, I saw the demo and was wowed at the results. I need a carpet like this in my life! The carpet is super easy to clean with water or mild detergent. I am always looking for ways to use fewer chemicals around my family, so I really love that there is no need for harsh carpet cleaners to get this carpet clean.

After seeing the demo, I took home a few samples so I could try it out myself at home. Z.E.N. and I went to town on the samples and spilled chocolate syrup, ketchup and wine one them (see video below). We then tried washing them off using just water. Using just water got the samples with chocolate syrup and wine clean. The ketchup stained sample needed a little more than water. I used some mild detergent on that one and the ketchup came out completely! I’m sold!Is Mohawk SmartStrand Carpet Really Stain Resistant?

    OK I need this carpet! We only have carpet in our living room but it always look dirty. I steam clean it at least every two week but something is spilled on it daily!

      Same here. I hate how my carpet looks. Can’t wait until we can afford to replace it.
