Last year when our finished basement was near completion, we had to select our flooring. We had opted for builders grade carpet upstairs when we built our home, and we’ve lived with that dreadful mistake for eight years so we knew we wanted to to purchase great quality carpet and padding for the basement. We also knew we wanted to choose a darker color because the beige color we have everywhere else shows every single stain. We considered the SmartStrand carpet when comparing and contrasting.
We were told by an independent party that it was the most stain resistant carpeting you could buy because of the special fiber called triexta that exists only in Mohawk carpets. And let’s face it, my two children know how to make a mess; It’s their specialty!
The Mohawk Anniversary Sale is in effect now until October 27th, and to be honest I’m a little upset that there was no sale when we were shopping for carpeting. With the sale you can save up to $500 on new flooring* or save 50% on select carpet**. Everyone loves a good deal, especially when it means you can also get exactly what you want.
After dinner tonight, I made an ice cream sundae for Emma. I decided to let her use our Mohawk carpet sample as her placemat. Can you imagine serving your kid a syrupy, chocolatey, sprinkley sundae right on your carpet floor? For once I was encouraging her to be messy and guess what she was actually extremely neat! Go figure!
So what I had her do is do some finger-painting with the hot fudge. I’m pretty sure she thought this was the coolest thing ever. This is before cleaning the carpet sample. She delivered the second time around.
And this is after cleaning. I’m amazed at the cleaning results. This is the carpet you want when you have children or pets, or clumsy people!
The other concern I have with carpeting is the large dents from heavy furniture. I like to move around furniture from time to time, and I like that each SmartStrand is shaped like a spring instead of other fibers that are straight. This helps the carpeting stand up to heavy traffic and heavy furniture because it bounces back from the impressions.
In the Mohawk Anniversary Sale Sweepstakes you can enter to win one of the following cash prizes: $2500, $1000 & $500. There will be three winners who will be announced on October 6th, 13th and 20th. Wouldn’t some extra cash be nice around the holidays?
