Mohawk has always been known for beautiful carpets in a wide variety of colours, styles, textures and construction. Mohawk's new technology makes a promise to customers on durability, superior performance, stain resistance, and comfort. SmartStrand carpet is made with DuPont Sorona, and Mohawk is able to provide the durability of high-performance fibres with stain resistance that is engineered into the fibre, so it will never wear or wash off.


To make Sorona® long-lasting, DuPont went all the way down to the molecular level. The durability of SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® is built into its very DNA: the polymer features a unique, spring-like molecule that helps the carpet bounce back for better crush resistance and resiliency.

Stain Resistance

The superior stain resistance of SmartStrand® carpet is engineered into the fibre and will not wear or wash off, meaning consumers will not need to re-treat the carpet with stain protectors after steam cleaning.

This permanent built-in resistance stands up to tough stains such as mustard, red wine, and cherry Kool-Aid®, and can be removed simply with warm water and a mild detergent, or with Mohawk FloorCare™ Essentials. Mohawk claims that the fibre even resists discolouration from bleach.


While its beauty will catch your eye, the softness will seal the deal. SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® is soft to the touch and passes the “barefoot” test, with thousands of customers praising its stylish look and soft feel — and at the same time appreciating the clean, healthy environment that comes with a carpet free of topical stain-fighting chemicals.  

SmartStrand carpeting is design-smart, too, available in a rainbow of fantastic colours and softness you have to touch to believe.

If you add a premier cushion underneath, not only do you add years to the life of your carpet, but you enhance the plushness and comfort of your carpeting.
