Owning pets can be quite a hassle to deal with when it come to your wall-to-wall carpet flooring, which can stain easily, hold odors, and get ruined with dog or cat hair. Fortunately, new technology is making pet friendly carpet a reality with products like Mohawks SmartStrand Pet Friendly Carpet
Benefits of SmartStrand’s Pet Friendly Carpet
- Resists tough pet stains
- Helps reduce odor
- Easily releases pet hair when vacuumed or cleaned
- Fade resistant
With pet friendly carpet, the carpet fibers are solution-dyed, which means the colors are added before the fiber is spun. With solution-dyed carpet, the color is all the way through the fiber, not just on the surface. So, the carpet resists fading from both sunlight and hydrogen peroxide based cleaning solutions.
Stain resistance is built in to carpet like Mohawks SmartStrand Pet Friendly Carpet due to the special fiber used. Instead of stain protection added to the outside of the fiber, the fiber is inherently stain resistant. So, the pet friendly stain protection will not wash off with carpet cleaning.
How Does Pet Friendly Carpet Reduce Odors?
The secret to resisting odors is in the padding. Urine and other pet odors soak through the carpet into the padding and then the sub-floor. While you can surface clean carpet, odors get locked into the padding even with deep cleaning. Mohawks SmartStrand Carpet cushion helps keep spills and accidents from soaking through. This allows for a more thorough cleaning based on independent lab cushion.
So, our Orange County Carpet & Flooring experts recommend that you do not forget to purchase the correct carpet pad that is suitable for pets.
Technology to Keep Your Wall to Wall Carpet Cleaner
Cleaning your carpets when you own pets is a must. Mohawks SmartStrand Pet Friendly Carpet uses a special technology that reduces the forces of attraction between the pet hair and carpet. This means more hair is removed with normal vacuuming. So, you will have less pet hair everywhere!
Mohawks SmartStrand Pet Friendly Carpet also uses a special fiber shield technology to resist most liquids, soil less, and clean up better. This keeps your carpet looking newer longer.
