I have heard two bits of feedback that should instill alot of confidence to prospective consumers of this new breakthrough carpet from America.
First one was from the head contractor I use in Melbourne. He runs a team of about 30 layers. They have installed 1000's of metres of this carpet, but we rarely get feedback from them ....... Today he told me how a layer doubted the lifetime stain resistant qualities of the fibre and took an offcut home. He covered it with grease from a grease gun, vegemite, mustard, some wine, etc. Then he set it with a hair dryer and then left it outside for a couple of days to really bake in. He cleaned it out with his garden hose - gone ! He was amazed. These claims that it is the biggest breakthrough in carpet fibres for ages are real.
The second thing I heard today was from a bloke down from Sydney for the day. During the week he had a phone call from a customer who had purchased Smartstrand IQ150 and had her cat vomit on it. He went out and with a regular spot remover, cleaned out the acid vomit (it had been soaking in for 48 hours untreated). The vomit cane straight out, no stain, no fading, no discolouration. The customer was stoked and it further reinforces this carpets credentials when it comes to stain resistence and colour fastness.
If you need more info on Smartstrand, read a few more of the posts on this forum or google it. YouTube has heaps of videos showing it getting trashed and then cleaned up.
