"Delaminating in a year - it's crap"
Run from Mohawk. We weren't smart enough to check the web before we bought 87 yards of smart-strand to replace a 15-yr-old Philadelphia carpet that wore like iron. Now seams are delaminating within just over a year, and left-over uninstalled pieces we stored are also delaminating. House is constant temp-humidity geothermal, and we have one small dog who only pees by lifting his leg on my car tires. Mohawk sent "independent inspector" who alleged pet pee at delaminating seams. Denied warranty. Google search immediately returned over 72-thousand hits for Mohawk carpet delamination. I think these guys are just Crooks and Liars. Blaine White - Howell, Michigan.

"New Dawn Smart Strand"
Within months of carpet installation started seeing delaminating due to breakdown of the latex binding. Mowawk said that shampooing carpet monthly due to having pets is overwetting and that caused the problem and would not stand behind their warranty. I was never advised that shampooing my carpet would invalidate my warranty. I was told that it was up to the retailer who sold me the carpet to get my cleaning history and advise me not to get this carpet. I really don't understand as I have never had this delamination issue with previous carpets and I have had pets for decades.

This expensive Mohawk carpet is a disaster! Within three months it started to "beard". It's a berber(sp?)that looks like it needs to be shaved. The problem is in all traffic areas. Still looks great under our furniture. Within 6 months it looked like an old sweater. $4000 down the tubes since Mohawk won't stand by their warranty. A strand test by a professional of Mohawks choice said it met company strand test standards. Really? What a bunch of crap! I would never buy this carpet again, nor any Mohawk version for that matter. They show lack of concern, poor customer satisfaction, nor willingness to stand by their product. Shame on you Mohawk! Now here we are four years later without 4 grand to replace it, and carpet that looks like shit!

Karastan carpeting was installed in a bedroom April 2014, from the first day the carpet laid over with each footstep. Vigorous vacuuming will not revive it and only looks better temporally. Complaints to Mohawk has brought no response. What ever the outcome, I would never patronize them again.

In less than a year's time, the carpet looked like it was dirty or had "wear patterns" outside of two rooms. We filed a claim and we're never given any satisfactory explanation as to why these areas looked so bad with only two adults in our house. The store where we purchased the carpet agreed that the carpet should not have looked like it did in such a short period of time. Nevertheless, our claim was denied and we remain very unhappy considering the money we spent to carpet our entire house with Smartstrand.

"To call this carpet garbage would be a compliment"
Mohawk Ellis Island - Luggage # 503 this carpet is two weeks old and is shedding at the rate of one vacuum cleaner bag full every time its vacuumed. There are spots on this two week old carpet that are nearly bald. The warranty at this point does not seem to apply. Don't buy Mohawk carpet, it is pure garbage. And the warranty is pure bull...

We replaced the carpet in our home after having Mohawk carpet for 20 years which wore like iron. We decided to purchase Mohawk because of our past experience. We are now so disappointed after spending $8,643.00 on Mohawk "Rodeo Drive" the carpet started looking frayed and smashed down after a year or so. My wife is a meticulous house cleaner and we have had the carpet professionally cleaned 3 times which improves the looks for a few days. The carpet has a 10 year strand retention warranty so we filed a claim. We have been working with Mohawk representatives for a year and a half. They sent out an independent carpet inspector which ruled that all of the problems were caused by our Dyson vacuum cleaner on the main floor and our upstairs master bedroom fraying was caused by our Eureka vacuum because it was on the low setting. It is all crap and Mohawk says they have no responsibility. Don't buy Mohawk carpet because they won't stand by their product.

"Carpet began to turn pinkish in color..."
I purchased a large amount of Flamboyant, Color Sugar( White ) Carpet from Rite Rug in Columbus Ohio. Also purchased Mohawk Pad for the Carpet. After a very short time the Carpet began to turn pinkish in color. I contacted Rite Rug and they pass the responsibility on to The Mohawk Carpet Manufacturer. Rite Rug told me there was nothing they could do. I have since found out the pad was discontinued by Rite Rug. I recently purchased new Carpet for the Bed Room and had the old Mohawk Carpet and Pad removed. Removing the pinkish / white Carpet revealed the pad to have turn a dark shade on top and it also had pink flakes of color in the texture of the pad. The pad next to the floor was just like new , no dark shade! The pad has caused The Mohawk Flamboyant Sugar / White Carpet to turn pinkish in Color. I have this all over the Great Room , upstairs staircase , Balcony , Loft room and two Bed Rooms. Rite Rug call today and chose to pick up a sample of the carpet and padding to send to the Mohawk Carpet Manufacturer to be analyzed. I would be very careful of purchasing Mohawk Carpet. Mr Sutton
