Just when you thought you had seen it all comes along a challenge for the ages. Recently Mohawk decided to put its SmartStrand® with DuPont™ Sorona® (SmartStrand) carpet up against 50,000 pounds of wild animals for two weeks at the Dallas Zoo during its Smartstrand Zoo Challenge. Not a typical challenge by any stretch of the imagination, but one Mohawk hoped would prove just how durable and reliable a carpet could be.

For more than two weeks, six African elephants lived, ate and even pooped on the SmartStrand carpet. By the looks of the carpet at the end of the two-week period, many including the zookeepers themselves, thought there was no way the carpet could be brought back to its original luster. Well, they thought wrong.

Using only hot-water extraction and Mohawk FloorCare Essentials Carpet Stain Remover, the soiling and staining washed away, eventually leaving the carpet looking virtually new, with no stains, fiber crushing or visible wear.

If SmartStrand can handle the wildlife at the Dallas Zoo, surely it can stand up to your toughest test at home. For more information on Mohawk, visit www.mohawkflooring.com.
