Quality should obviously be a key factor in any home design purchase, but there are many brands out there that strive to offer more than just a great product. From eco-friendly practices to charitable giving, our design team prefers to partner with companies that go the extra mile with their business, and we find our clients appreciate it too.
Searching for a great new carpet to cushion your floors and want to know your money is doing some good too? We have five reasons why Mohawk carpet is by far the brand we sell the most for home carpeting projects.
1. Carpet from Bottles
Mohawk is committed to providing safe and sustainable products. We love the 100% recycled content of their EverStrand carpets. Their facilities recycle plastic bottles to create the most stain and wear resistant fiber on the market.
2. Cancer Research
Mohawk has been a partner with the Susan G. Komen breast cancer organization since 2001. They give a portion of every SmartCushion pad purchase to Susan G. Komen for breast cancer research.
3. A Pad Above the Rest
We choose to sell only the SmartCushion pad for our carpet installations. SmartCushion by Mohawk is simply the best memory foam pad. It doubles the wear ratings and texture retention warranties of the carpet under which it’s installed. Like other Mohawk products, it also boasts green-living benefits like 90% recycled content and thermal insulation for more energy efficient homes. SmartCushion pads are antimicrobial, sound insulators, great for heavy traffic, and also prevent moisture from spills from reaching the subfloor.
4. Carbon Footprint Reduction
Mohawk’s comprehensive plan to decrease their energy, emissions, water, and waste by 25% by 2020 is improving the efficiency of their manufacturing and encouraging innovative eco-friendly solutions for the industry. They have made substantial progress since 2010 and continue to implement strategies for reducing their footprint each year. Check out their Sustainability Report for more details on their green advancements.
5. Community Giving
Local community involvement is a principle we hold dear, so it is always an excellent bonus to know the companies we work with value it too. Mohawk provides Atlanta Habitat for Humanity with carpet pad and their 100% recycled EverStrand carpet for Habitat building projects.
