Smartstrand Carpet Complaint

Dear Alan

I am hoping you can offer some advice. We purchased Mohawk Smartstrand carpet for the master bedroom of a “seasonal” residence. Two adults and no pets inhabit the residence for approximately 5 months of the year.

The condo is in Florida. The carpet was purchased 8/2013. The carpet is showing excessive wear patterns anywhere we have to walk on and the carpet looks “matted” and frayed. Mohawk denied our claim because we didn’t have the carpet cleaned after 18 months. We pointed out that we had not been living in the residence for a total of 18 months. The store we purchased from in Naples, Florida asked us to have it cleaned and recommended a carpet cleaning company. Now after the cleaning, the carpet fibers look worse and the carpet looks dirty. The carpet cleaner also noted the wear patterns were not improved by the cleaning.
