Mohawk Carpet and Eco Flooring

Mohawk Carpet is leading the way in the Eco floorcovering market with green flooring solutions. The Eco flooring market is made up of several aspects. The primary aspect is flooring such as carpet, laminate and hardwood that are either developed from sustainable resources or are environmentally friendly. Mohawk tackles both with their Everstrand and Smart Strand with Dupont Sorona fiber.

Everstrand has been a popular carpet product with consumers. Everstrand is made 100% from recycled plastic bottles with a fiber called PET (polyethylene terephthalate). These PET chips are ground up, heated and extruded into fibers and used instead of other synthetic or man made fibers like Nylon, Olefin, Polyester or Wool.

The newest product from Mohawk Carpet is called Smart Strand with Dupont Sorona. Smart Strand is made primarily from a polymer based on corn syrup (yup, corn). It also takes less energy to produce and is inherently stain resistant as well. Give a call at 800-232-5537 to ask about more features and information on this exciting new carpet option! This product gives us a double whammy because it not only uses a sustainable resource, but saves energy in the manufacturing process as well. It's definitely worth looking at!

Eco flooring is a rapidly growing trend and Mohawk is one of the leaders in the carpet and flooring industry. Keep an eye out for more exciting news about Green and Eco flooring information from the blog and!
