Need BR Carpeting
I've just read the "Mohawk" thread from March 2012. Any updates to the softstrand pro's and cons'? Anything further on vacuuming problems? I have a central vac with great suction -- no power assist -- have a 'carpet' attachment for this room. (I only use suction on my orientals.)
I need to buy a piece of carpeting 11 X 14 and have it bound for use in our MBR. (I realize I will need to buy 12 X 14 and waste a strip!)
I have at home a sample from Menard's. It's Mohawk 65 oz. plush @ $2.87/ sq ft. ("Twilight" is the store's name for the style, and the color is 08 - 'Mountain Moss'.) The twist strands look to be about 3/8 of an inch long (at most). Says it is "Everstrand" and Scotchguarded. (Why did I think Scotchguard had been outlawed?)
Advice on "Everstrand"? Says it is made from recycled plastic bottles. I am sensitive to chemicals. Problem?
We have a 13-year-old terrier with a maddening habit of eating 'carp' on the sly and regurgitating it at 3 a.m.
This is my first try buying from a big box store. I live in the suburbs of Chicago.
Thanks for all help and advice!
