In terms of color and design, you’ll find that Mohawk carpets are very versatile and that style options exist for every look.



2. What surfaces work well when installing Mohawk carpet?

You can install Mohawk carpeting over virtually any surface. Carpet flooring is especially useful at hiding flaws in your subflooring, including uneven leveling.



3. Are Mohawk carpets pet-friendly and kid-friendly? And in what ways?

We’ve recommended choosing a pet-friendly and kid-friendly carpet, but maybe you asked yourself, “is there such a thing?” Well…yes! Mohawk carpets deliver this assurance on three optional levels of performance:

  • Stain resistant: this type of carpet is perfect for bedrooms, offices or any places with moderate traffic. They are made with Polyester Fiber and protected with Scotchgard, designed to resist stains and keep the carpet looking brand new for longer.
  • Wear resistant: Made from Nylon Fiber, this kind of Mohawk carpet will put up with pets and kids alike. This carpet is meant for higher traffic areas like living rooms, hallways, stairs, and even playrooms. It won’t get too worn out—even if your kid is Iron Man three days of the week.
  • Stain Wear + Resistant: This is meant for dining rooms and any heavy traffic area where spills are likely. It combines durability with softness, stain and soil resistance. This option is made from the Mohawk exclusive Triexta Fiber.


4. What are the available carpet styles?

As far as the Mohawk carpet styles are involved, you can choose between four construction styles: loop, pattern, texture and frieze (twist).

Loop is a very reliable style—it looks nice AND it’s durable. Pattern is a combination of loop and cut heights, and can look dramatic, bold, or simple. Heavy traffic is no problem. The texture style can give you style diversity for any room. And the frieze texture will give your carpet an interesting twist—literally.
