"Pet friendly carpet is a new trend in floor covering"

The manufacturing process has been enhanced to meet the challenges of life today, especially for parents and pet owners. This means you can now purchase a new pet friendly carpet that will last for years without the worry of spills or accidents.

Four manufacturers that produce pet friendly carpet are Mohawk, Shaw Floors, Beaulieu of America and Phenix.

Mohawk has the first carpet made from a bio based material. SmartStrand with Dupont Sorona Polymer fiber is made with a renewable sustainable plant based material called OEKO-TEX®. This fiber is certified to be free of harmful substance. SmartStrand has a new Nanoloc spill and stain protection built into the fiber that does not wash or wear off and is three times easier to clean. Mohawks pet friendly carpet has a 100% Lifetime stain protection warranty.

Shaw Floors LifeGuard is the first 100% thermoplastic commercial grade backing that provides a moisture barrier against pet urine, spills, and odor. It is made from nylon fibers that naturally reduce odors and the R2X Stain Protection protects from spills and pet urine. The entire product is manufactured to protect in every way. Shaw Floors is offering a lifetime delamination, edge ravel, tuft bind warranty for their pet and family friendly carpet.

Beaulieu of America offers Bliss with MagicFresh carpet treatment which controls odors by breaking down the odor molecules into carbon dioxide and is hard to stain. Bliss also has Silver Release antimicrobial treatment. Both treatments are added during manufacturing so it is built in the fibers of the carpet. Both treatments are all natural and will resist mildew, mold, and bacteria. Bliss is a Stainmaster type 6-6 nylon and is coated with LotusFx fiber shield technology. Bliss has an anti-static OmniLoc Modular eco friendly carpet backing. The warranty for this carpet is a limited lifetime stain, food, beverage, and pet urine for the life of the carpet.

Lastly there is Phenix PetProtect Carpet by Stainmaster. All Stainmaster carpet is type 6-6 nylon, a soft and strong carpet fiber that features a unique molecular structure that provides a superior resiliency over other carpet fibers. PetProtect features SuperiaSD commercial grade fiber with built in stain protection. PetProtect carpet is color safe and resists fading. PetProtect carpet easily releases pet hair while cleaning or vacuuming. Phenix and Stainmaster offer a lifetime warranty against stains from pet urine, feces, vomit, food, beverage stains, soil, and static.

Pet friendly carpet is a new trend in floor covering so watch for more manufacturers to produce pet and family friendly carpets. Additional pet friendly carpet styles will soon be introduced by Dixie Home and Stanton Carpet.

Georgia Carpet Industries is located in Dalton, GA and has been in business since 1969.
