Mohawk Flooring “License to Spill Tour” Hilton Head South Carolina

What is the worst thing about spilling anything on carpet?  Nothing, when you have Mohawk SmartStrand Silk Carpeting!  Mohawk is the largest floor manufacturer in the world, selling its beautiful flooring products through retail partners.  This past weekend my family and I headed to the  Hilton Head, SC Seafood Festival to test the new carpet from Mohawk Flooring.  I was extremely excited, as I know that many military spouses are always trying to make a “new” house a home. We are constantly buying carpet and rugs, especially when we end up with housing that has hospital floor tiles! Any carpet that could survive spills and stains would be at the top of anyone’s “to buy” list.  I also have three small children and spills are aplenty over here.  So carpet with stain protection is just what we need.

We arrived in Hilton Head and headed straight to the license to spill truck.

Rachel Withers, PR pro, met us with open arms and a smile!

She explained how the SmartStrand carpet has permanent stain and soil resistance that will never wear off.  Compared to other carpets that have treatments applied topically to the fiber that will wear off over time, SmartStrand carpet has stain protection built into the carpet itself.

There is no need for harsh cleaners or chemicals.  You just need warm water, mild detergent like dish soap, a dish cloth.  I wish I knew about this before I bought my carpet cleaner last month!

I soaked this piece of carpet with red wine.  I must add that it was the first time I enjoyed getting my carpet dirty!

This is the same piece of carpet after I squirted water on it a few times.  I didn’t even scrub it!

We also met Lesley Nagy, co-host of the nationally syndicated  Better Show, who shared why she loves Mohawk Flooring.  She is the sweetest person ever!


What is a Seafood Festival without some seafood?! We enjoyed some fried shrimp from Hudsons Seafood Restaurant.  They have been around since 1967.  The food was so good we almost forgot to take a picture!

 We enjoyed the festival and the people from Mohawk Flooring were so nice and genuine.  They are giving readers a chance to win your own 6 X 9 SmartStrand silk bound carpet rug!
