SmartStrand


Mohawk leads innovation in sustainable flooring with SmartStrand® carpet with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer. In a partnership with DuPont, this carpet exclusively offers fiber made with Bio-PDO™ (the key Sorona® ingredient), which is produced from corn sugar. By utilizing this new ingredient, 37 percent of Sorona® is made from renewable resources. This marks the first time that a luxuriously soft carpet offers durability and stain protection, while also making a smaller environmental impact.

Why Is SmartStrand Environmentally Smart?


DuPont™ Sorona® plays a major role in the worldwide objective of a renewable economy and represents a new frontier in sustainability. Sorona® is environmentally smart because it requires 30 percent less energy than the production of an equal amount of nylon and produces 63 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than nylon manufacturing. This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square yards of carpet.

Superior Carpet


The superior stain resistance of SmartStrand® carpet is engineered into the fiber and will never wear or wash off, meaning consumers will never need to retreat the carpet with stain protectors after steam cleaning. This engineered-in stain resistance reaches new levels of protection, allowing tough stains such as mustard, red wine, and cherry Kool-Aid® to be removed simply with warm water and a mild detergent, or with Mohawk FloorCare™ essentials. The fiber even resists discoloration from bleach. Imperial Wholesale also offers carpet in Phoenix from Shaw Floors, Beaulieu, Dreamweaver, Tufftex and Royalty Carpets. With this many options, you’re sure to find the carpet you’re looking for.

Whether you have little kids running around your home, enjoy the feel of soft flooring on your bare feet, or simply like the look, carpet is always a great flooring choice for any home! We offer carpet from a variety of companies including: Carpeting comes in a wide selection of colors and styles. While carpet is more difficult to clean, it comes with a number of other benefits including (but certainly not limited to):
  • Safety – Carpet is less slippery than other floors, as well as much safer to fall onto if you were to slip, as it is more padded that wood, tile or laminate.
  • Noise reducing – Walking on carpet, either in shoes or barefoot, is much quieter than walking on wood, tile or laminate flooring.
  • Improved air quality – Not many know this, but carpet actually traps allergens, keeping them from circulating throughout the air, making your indoor air quality better than it would be with other types of flooring.
Carpet is a classic floor material that will always be in style. While it isn’t the most modern material out there, it can work well in most homes, depending on the colors, style and type of carpet chosen.
