For our clients who are looking for new carpet, but worry about the kids, pets, and the little accidents that come along with them- you’ll want to keep reading! In this week’s Bockrath blog we’re putting the spotlight on Karastan Smart Strand Forever Clean. Below are answers to the most asked questions about Smart Strand Forever Clean Carpet.
Will Smart Strand crush or matte over time?
Smart Strand by Karastan is made with an innovative fiber that resists matting and crushing. This fiber holds a unique trait that allows the fiber to bounce back and maintain its appearance. In an independent comparison test Smart Strand retained its appearance after 60,000 footsteps!
Does this mean the carpet is rough, scratchy, or uncomfortable to touch?
Not at all, Karastan was able to create a durable fiber that is comfortable and luxurious. There are different levels of Smart Strand, such as Smart Strand Silk, that gives an even greater plush feeling. Just because a carpet is described as durable doesn’t mean it has to be anything less that luxurious and comfortable!
How does Smart Strand keep from absorbing stains?
It’s built right into the core of the fiber! Smart Strand has no dye sites for spills to adhere to, causing a stain. This stain resistance is built into the fiber and will never wear or wash off.
Are there harmful chemicals involved to be worried about?
No, Karastan Smart Strand is made with Dupont Sorona, which is OEKO-TEX certified free from harmful substances. Karastan also reduced their energy consumption in the manufacturing process by making Smart Strand in part with annually renewable plant-based materials. This means it is safe and worry free for your family, pets, and the environment.
What about pet odors, soil, and dander?
Karastan now offers an All Pet Protection and Warranty with Smart Strand. This covers all pets, all accidents, all the time. Smart Strand will not absorb pet accidents into the fiber, making this easy to clean and reduces common pet-related odors. The Nanoloc spill and soil shield encapsulates the fiber making it 3 times easier to remove pet hair and dander from your pets.
