Unique Carpet Features
Antistatic: The ability of a carpet system to dissipate an electrostatic charge before it reaches the threshold of human sensitivity. This is a desirable attribute if you have ever experienced electro-static shock from rubbing your feet on a carpet, but an additional benefit this feature offers is the protection of your electronic equipment from damage due to static electricity.
"Forever Fresh" Odor Control: Mohawk Floors offers an odor control feature called "Forever Fresh." It is a feature that never wears off or washes off for it is a odor neutralizing mineral built into the carpet. While this is a pleasant feature to have in your carpet, especially in busy households with pets, it does not remove matter from your carpet; therefore, wiping up spills, vacuuming, and professional cleaning are still required. Forever Fresh in Mohawk Floors own words:
Fresh Carpet Technology: Forever Fresh is treated with the unique Fresh Carpet Technology that continually purifies your home by neutralizing odors. And since this is a natural, nontoxic product, it’s safe for you, your kids and your pets to enjoy its softness and comfort.
The Science of Odor Control: Fresh Carpet Technology utilizes Zeolite, a naturally-occurring mineral, to neutralize household odors. This natural, nontoxic technology keeps your carpet and home smelling fresh.
