On the Couch with Taniya Nayak
We asked Mohawk's expert to share her flooring secrets ranging from pet-friendly carpets to hot decorating trends.
High Traffic and Pets
What advice do you have for home owners who need carpet for high trafficked areas or who have pets?
TN: These can be two separate issues. Pets can increase traffic, but they can also cause stains. You could choose a product with a topical stain resistant like nylon, or a type of Mohwak carpet called SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona®, which addresses both problems. For high traffic areas, SmartStrand® springs back and doesn't show wear. For possible pet stains, which are covered by the warranty, the stain resistant is built in so it doesn't wash or wear off.
