What the sales person will ask you…
What you should ask the sales person…
Before your purchase…When you go to the store, feel free to take fabric samples, pillows, paint swatches, carpet cushions, or bedspreads. Don’t be embarrassed to ask for whatever you need to help you make the choice. Your flooring installation shouldn’t be scheduled until all your painting, wallpapering, and construction is complete. Your flooring should be the last element of your remodeling project. Always ask to bring the sample in your home, and be sure to look at it during the day and at night. The lighting in the store likely mak
During the purchase… At the time of your purchase, a qualified “estimator” will come to your home to measure exactly how much flooring you will need. After that, make sure your cost estimates include everything, including padding, moving furniture and installation. If you are interested in where the carpet seams will be, feel free to discuss it with the sales associate before purchase. We suggest that you make notations on your flooring purchase while it’s still on your mind and store it with your warranty information. It’s probably a good idea to keep track of:
After the purchase… Either the night before or the morning of your installation, vacuum the old carpet to minimize the airborne dust and particles that removing it will cause. Make sure that you get what you ordered. Save your flooring sample. When the installer arrives, match the sample to the new floor. Verify the color, style, and texture. If it’s not what you ordered, it’s easier for everyone if you catch it immediately. Ventilate the room well during installation — open doors & windows. Make sure to request warranty information and read immediately after installation so that you know the recommended maintenance.
Wool – Wool carpet is naturally stain and soil resistant. The wool fiber’s structure consists of overlapping scales, arranged much like roof shingles. These scales inhibit dirt from adhering to the fiber and help fleck it away. Wool has significantly better soil release than any other fiber. Wool cleans better, making stain protection unnecessary. Wool carpet is naturally crush-resistant. The wool fiber is naturally curly, and it has more crush resistance than any other fiber. Wool carpet is hypo-allergenic.
Nylon – In overall performance characteristics, nylon is the most versatile of all fibers, providing excellent flexibility in creating a variety of carpet styles. It is durable, resilient, and receptive to dyeing for color versatility and uniformity; many new nylon yarn systems are also exceptionally soft. Though not inherently stain resistant, most nylon carpets are treated with stain-resist carpet treatment for protection against household spills and stains.
Olefin/Polypropylene – Unlike the other fiber types, polypropylene will not absorb water and must therefore be solution dyed (pigmented) to impart color. Solution dyeing is a pigmentation process in which color is actually built into the fiber when it is formed, or extruded, thereby becoming an inherent part that cannot be removed from the fiber. The color will not fade, even when exposed to intense sunlight, bleaches, atmospheric contaminants, or other harsh chemicals or elements. However, since it is not as resilient as other fibers, polypropylene is normally used in loop pile constructions in which there is less need for superior resiliency.
PET – Polyethylene Terephthalate Fibers retain their color and resist fading due to sun or harsh cleaning. Shades can be richer and brighter than those found in nylon yarns. Because plastic beverage containers are made with top quality PET resins as required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, recycled PET is superior to lower grades of virgin synthetic fibers used in making other brands of polyester carpet yarns. PET has exceptional strength and durability and the value of these properties is not lost in their recycling process.
Smart Strand – SmartStrand fibers provide permanent stain protection that is literally built-in to the fiber so it can never wear or clean off. Usually tough stains such as red wine, mustard, coffee, and bleach have vanished with nothing more than hot water and a little detergent. Its stain resistance is so good that, for the first time, Mohawk is offering a Limited Lifetime Stain Warranty for SmartStrand products. SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona fibers are made of 3GT molecules, a molecule structure that provides permanently engineered-in stain resistance, so we don’t have to apply topical stain-resistance treatments like nylon or PET polyester carpets do. No chemicals means there are no stiff strands or harsh-feeling fibers leaving it very soft to the touch.
