Carpet Durability Test – SmartStrand Silk Reserve vs. a Rhino

To prove, once and for all, that our ultimate carpet is as strong as it is soft, we took SmartStrand Silk to the Birmingham Zoo to meet Max the Rhino. It’s the SmartStrand Challenge—taken to the Max. “Mohawk returned to the Birmingham Zoo, site of the original SmartStrand Challenge, for a whole new test. This time, we’ve doubled down on both durability and softness with SmartStrand Silk Reserve. And to put it to the test, we’ve doubled the size of the rhino! We put SmartStrand Silk Reserve head-to-head against the leading competitor in soft nylon carpet. For two weeks, the Birmingham Zoo’s Max the Rhino lived, ate, played, stomped and made huge messes on both carpets. By the end of the challenge, the winner was clear – Mohawk SmartStrand Silk was stain-free after normal cleaning, while the competing carpet will never be the same. “
