Mohawk SmartStrand Carpet Gives Us a “License to Spill”

To be honest… I’d never really given a lot of thought to our carpet.  After all, carpet is just carpet… right?

However, a busy, sometimes messy little girl has definitely made me step back and give a bit more thought to the carpet in our home.  After spills from things such as red juice and chocolate milk, as well as a leaky Christmas tree stand, my carpet shows definite signs of wear and tear.

Now, as we are in the midst of relocating and finding a new home, I am paying more attention to carpet options than ever before.

Have you heard of Mohawk SmartStrand Carpet?  This revolutionary carpet truly gives my family a “license to spill”, as it contains built-in stain and soil resistance that will never wear or wash off.  Unlike other carpets, the resistance in SmartStrand is not sprayed on since it is built right into the strands of the carpet.

This technology makes the Mohawk SmartStrand Carpet easy to clean with a little water {or mild detergent, if you prefer}.  You won’t need to buy those toxic and stinky carpet cleaners that might or might not work.  Does it sound too good to be true?

Well, it’s not.  I got to see this amazing carpet in action at the Hilton Head Island Seafood Festival.  The Mohawk Flooring License to Spill Tour was in town, and they brought along lots of samples of their SmartStrand Carpet along with all kinds of stuff to spill and splash on it.

Think chocolate sauce, red wine, and blue juice– all things that are normally detrimental to your carpet.  I watched my daughter and other visitors completely douse the carpet with these things– and I watched the stains just as quickly and easily disappear from the carpet.  It was pretty amazing!

I even stood over a piece of SmartStrand Carpet eating gumbo from the amazing Hudson’s Restaurant on Hilton Head Island.  I almost dropped my gumbo at one point, but there were virtually no worries.  After all, with carpet that is this easy to clean, I could easily get this incredibly tasty meal cleaned up in no time.

The SmartStrand Carpet comes in multiple colors and even various designs, making it easy to match to any decor or space.  You can even have SmartStrand Carpet bound into a rug!  That’s right.  If you aren’t ready to re-carpet your entire home or are looking to add some color to a certain room, then this is a fantastic option to consider.

While at the festival, I had the opportunity to meet the head chef of Hudson’s, who created this amazing gumbo.  I also got to chat with Lesley Nagy, host of the nationally syndicated The Better Show, known for bringing viewers the latest trends in entertainment, lifestyle, cooking and design.  We got to talk about carpet, the amazing Hilton Head weather, and delicious food.  She was even sweet and patient as my daughter went on and on about the many colors we’d painted her nails!
