Buying the best flooring for the family with Mohawk Carpet

This shop about buying the best flooring for the family & #GoodbyeWorry has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. We are in the process of transforming our playroom into a tween room but there is just one White Elephant in the room that we cant decide what to do with. This carpet. While 8 years old is not that old for an area rug this one has had its share of traffic.


From Baby spit ups, to many human and pet playdates with drippy sippy cups to birthday parties this carpet has been through it all. There is no doubt that this rug is worn out, but the thing that gets me are the stains that have not come out despite what the salesperson told me when I purchased it. We have spot cleaned it, used a carpet steamer ,you name it and we just can’t get it too look good again.


How do you buy the best flooring for the active family? I recently heard about the Mohawk’s Anniversary Sale where customers can save up to $500 on new flooring and save 50% on select carpet. I immediately headed to Mohawk’s website and was introduced to their SmartStrand carpet. Where was this 8 years ago??? 

I want to be sure I know my family is laying on clean carpeting.


SmartStrand is the ONLY carpet with built-in stain and soil resistance that will NEVER wear or wash off.

  • Superior durability and softness for peace of mind and comfort
  • Lifetime stain and soil resistance that’s built in, not sprayed on
  • Protection that will never wear or wash off like other carpets
  • Easy to clean with water or mild detergent
  • Environmentally friendly, because it’s made in part from renewable resources

We put a sample piece of the SmartStrand Carpet to the test. Oops a dark colored drink fell on the carpet.


It rinsed right off. Obviously I should have splotted it as you can’t rinse an entire carpet but it came out clean. This is still wet but you can’t see the red stain anymore.


I would have saved a lot of money had I purchased this for the playroom 8 years ago instead of having to buy a new carpet. I will definitely be looking into the SmartStrand carpeting this time around. But first I am going to enter Mohawk’s Anniversary Sale Sweepstakes  You can enter to win one of 3 cash prizes. Up to $2500 cash which will be great to put towards our new Mohawk Flooring. Hurry as winners will be selected October 6th, 13th and 20th. 

 Is there a room in your house you would like to change the flooring?


  1. My husband and I have been thinking about area rugs around the house (we rent so carpeting is out) and I think Mohawk is a good solution. #client

  2. I could use some new carpeting even though it’s not in our budget right now. I’m entering that sweepstakes. 🙂

  3. I discovered Mohawk Carpet a year ago.It really is good stuff.

  4. With kids and many cats and dogs and more kids and now grandkids, I’m not a fan of carpeting and try to change it out with hardwood where ever possible! The only place I really do like a nice plush carpet is in my bedroom.

  5. I’d love to have carpeting in my apartment but we plan on moving soon so if we did invest in carpeting, it would be a waste. I do LOVE Mohawk though and would love to use their carpeting in our next home!

  6. The carpet in our family definitely needs to be replaced with something like this that is stain resistant.

  7. I saw this at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta last year and this stuff is amazing!

  8. This would be great for my sons room we are completely doing an overhaul and in the market for something that doesn’t stain easily.

  9. I love what you chose! Very neutral and the pattern is great!

  10. Our area rugs need to be replaced as well! They have gone through a lot with our four kids and pets!

  11. Love the picture of your daughter and your dog! Our dogs were the reason we had to give up our white carpet …

  12. I need some stain resistant carpet! I don’t have kids… but I do have cats that occasionally cough up hairballs on carpet.

  13. Mohawk is a great carpet brand. We are in the process of replacing all our floors to new hardwood. Mohawk makes some amazing rugs – perfect for our new living floor.

  14. I have all hard wood, so I am really happy with that, but I would like a new area rug for under my dining room table.
