Since the state of the environment has become a growing issue for concern, more and more people are incorporating “green” products into their homes and everyday lives. We at Home Carpet One recognize this need and now display SmartStrand with Dupont Sorona carpet in our Chicago Carpet showroom. Mohawk and DuPont partnered to create an environmentally-friendly carpet using a product called Sorona. 37% of Sorona is made from renewable resources, which helps make a durable, soft carpet that looks great while also cutting down on our carbon footprint.
Did you know that every 7 yards of SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona saves enough energy and resources to equal one gallon of gasoline and that production of the Sorona fiber requires 30% less energy than the production of a nylon carpet? When it comes to stain-resistant fibers, SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona is second to none. SmartStrand carpet also has a built-in stain protection that doesn’t require any topical chemicals for stain removal. With these facts alone, SmartStrand is an obvious choice for that environmentally conscious consumer with a busy Chicago household.
Durability and softness are always factors when choosing a carpet and SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona is at the top of their class for both. A “walk test,” which simulates over 20,000 footprints taken in a year, is performed on every SmartStrand carpet produced. The results proved SmartStrand’s performance and durability to be better than that of a nylon carpet. When SmartStrand buyers were asked, “what did you enjoy most about your purchase that you did not expect?” The most popular answer was softness. No harsh chemicals mean no rigid fibers so not only will SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona last for years, it will keep its softness as well.
The next time you are looking for carpet that is environmentally-friendly, but also durable and soft, think of SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona available at Home Carpet One in our Chicago carpet showroom. We promise you will leave happy after picking out a great carpet for your home while also helping to make a difference in the environment.
