Once you become a mom, the floor becomes your second home. From impromptu picnics to carefully created castles to art studios that seem to spring out of nowhere, many of the joys of childhood take place on the floor. And while I’ve had no problem getting used to spending hours laying on my side or sitting Indian style with the boys while we make memories, my carpet has, let’s just say suffered. You see, when we moved into our home the floors were already carpeted in white (gasp, I know!). And while they stayed somewhat white for, oh, about six months, after that they took on a funny color. There were wear marks that were brown from little feet coming in after playing in the yard. There were apple juice stains from sippy cups that weren’t exactly leak proof. There were even purple spots from medicine that didn’t quite make it into little mouths. And I had come to accept the fact that this was just how carpets looked when you had kids.
But then something happened – Mohawk flooring decided to change the game and make living on your carpet something that you could enjoy without worrying about the messes that life creates. Thanks to SmartStrand Carpet, the floor is once again our favorite place to be!
We had the chance to test out an amazing SmartStrand carpet rug and let me just say, I want this in my whole house now! I chose to put in in our bedroom (at the end of the bed) because that is where many of our family moments are spent. From movie nights in front of the TV to game day snacks to art time, we are always in the floor in that room. And I wanted something there that could stand up to the moments we make.
The first think I noticed was how soft and plush the carpet felt. In fact, MillerBug decided that it was is favorite place to be and now constantly dances on it because it’s gentler on his little feet. And when he gets worn out, well he lays right down! I immediately loved that no matter how hard he played, little footprints were not left behind!
But what I loved even more was that we could enjoy getting down on the floor while playing, creating and eating together without the worry that we would ruin the carpet! Why you ask? Because SmartStrand has permanent stain and soil resistance that will never wear off! So, that spilled juice from an afternoon movie time? No problem? A little paint from craft time. No worries! Since the stain protection is built into the fabric itself, cleaning up stains is as easy and using a little soap and warm water with a rag! In fact, even the dreaded ketchup and red wine stains come up easily! It’s not hard to see why this amazing carpet is rated number one in customer satisfaction!
So, if you feel like no carpet will stand up to your wild animals of children, think again! Just check this out:
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!
So, if you are ready to start actually living on your carpet, it’s time to discover SmartStrand from Mohawk! No longer will you cringe when your kids come in after splashing in mud puddles. No more will movie night be ruined by a random spill. Not another craft time will feel less creative because of coloring outside of the lines! Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy each and ever moment – down on the floor, living life to the fullest with your kids. And if a little spill happens, so what? That’s life and for once, you’ll be able to remove the messes it leaves behind so that you only look back on the wonderful memories!
