FloorCare Essentials

For You and Your Home, It's Time to Shine

We Make Beautiful Floors and We Keep Them That Way

Stunning surfaces come in many varieties: ceramic tile, carpet, hardwood, laminate, and the list goes on. While every flooring product has unique and attractive attributes, no surface is safe from an everyday household mishap. Whether it's paint from the palette of your budding Picasso or a wine glass knocked over during a get-together, spatters and spills are inevitable.

It pays to be prepared for accidents. At Mohawk we not only create the quality flooring that makes your home come to life, we also create products that will help keep your floor as vibrant as the day you installed it. Our Mohawk FloorCare Essentials are designed to eliminate your stress and minimize cleanup time.

Renewable Resources Keep Our FloorCare Essentials Simple & Superior

Our All–Natural Products Make for All–Around Better Performance In Your Home

You might not use the terms sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate in your everyday conversation, but you are actually quite familiar with these substances.

More commonly referred to as table salt, baking soda, and washing soda, these compounds along with sodium citrate (the salt of citric acid) form the basis of Mohawk FloorCare Essentials.

This surprisingly uncomplicated combination represents our efforts to utilize ingredients that are naturally–occurring in the earth.

These ingredients also function as renewable resources making FloorCare Essentials a sustainable product line, a major breakthrough in household cleaning.

Biodegradable and even surfactant free. And that’s where it gets interesting...

FloorCare Essentials Are Surfactant Free — And We’re Keeping It That Way

So often our household cleaners contain chemicals that may treat a spill or stain, but ultimately leave your beautiful surface and the atmosphere worse for the wear.

We worked hard to create an all–natural product and keep FloorCare Essentials free of surfactants, or surface acting agents. You and your pets can rest assured knowing that your home is cleaned without introducing these pollutants.

What can we say, we’re pretty proud of these facts — It’s an incredible feeling to know that when you clean your floor, you can protect your planet too!

Thinking Green Is Earning Mohawk FloorCare Essentials High Praise

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency makes protecting our planet a top priority.

Established in 1970, the EPA has worked to improve human health and the environment by leading the nation's environmental science, research, education, and assessment efforts.

As one of the largest recyclers in the flooring industry, Mohawk believes it's our responsibility to lead efforts like those outlined by the EPA. It was this mindset that led to developments like Mohawk recycling millions of pounds of tires into doormats every year and using sawdust and bio–waste as alternative energy sources. We pride ourselves not only on the earth-friendly products we create but also on the innovative ways we save energy when creating those products.

As well, we continued our green thinking when we developed Mohawk FloorCare Essentials and our ideas did not go unnoticed.

Mohawk FloorCare Essentials Represent Design for the Environment

When awarding the distinguished Design for the Environment (DfE) label, the EPA focuses on a product’s reduction of chemical risk and improvements in energy efficiency with lasting, positive change.

A scientific review team screens each ingredient to determine the effects on human health and the environment and to ensure that the product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class.

The DfE label allows consumers to quickly identify and choose products that help protect the environment and are safer for families. By meeting DfE standards, Mohawk has earned the right to display this logo on our entire line of FloorCare Essentials products.*

We went the extra mile in our bottling process as well. Mohawk has the world's largest fully integrated PET bottles recycling plant and the plastic FloorCare Essentials bottles and spray triggers are 100% recyclable.

Taking care of the earth is a duty that we don't take lightly. With Mohawk FloorCare Essentials you can keep your floors looking fantastic while instituting a green initiative of your own.

*EPA/DfE recognition does not constitute endorsement of this product. The Design for the Environment logo signifies that the formula for this product, as the Partner has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive health and environmental characteristics than conventional cleaners. EPA/DfE relies solely on the Partner, its integrity and good faith, for information on the composition, ingredients, and attributes of this product. EPA/DfE has not independently identified, i.e., via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, nor evaluated any of the Partner’s non–ingredient claims. EPA/DfE expresses its judgment and professional opinion only as to the environmental and human health characteristics of the product, based on currently available information and scientific understanding.

Mohawk FloorCare Essentials Passes Even the Strictest Testing

The Carpet and Rug Institute Awarded Mohawk FloorCare Essentials the Seal of Approval

It wasn’t easy, but we made the cut — and Mohawk FloorCare Essentials has been approved!

Successful completion of the Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval program is no easy task.

In testing spot removers for cleaning effectiveness, a multitude of criteria are examined through scientifically–accredited cleaning standards in CRI and independent laboratories. These factors include:

  • Overall cleaning effectiveness: The product removes soil and spots.
  • Rate of resoiling: The product does not attract dirt to the cleaned areas faster than the rest of the carpet.
  • pH: Carpet dyes and fibers are not adversely affected.
  • Surface texture change: The product must leave the carpet pile minimally changed after repeated cleanings.
  • Optical brighteners: None are allowed, as they can leave some patches of carpet lighter than the rest.
  • Colorfastness: The products must not be so aggressive that they cause a color change in the carpet.

After this thorough cross–examination, we are proud to say that FloorCare Essentials products wear the CRI Approved Seal. It’s one more reminder of the care we put into providing you with cleaning technology of the highest quality.

Before We Can Meet Your Approval, We Had to Meet Their’s As Well!

WoolSafe Test Methods Ensure the Safety of FloorCare Essentials

The last thing you want for your home investment in Mohawk floors is a household cleaner that damages the function or appearance.

Before FloorCare Essentials can have the honor of treating the surfaces in your home, we go to great lengths to guarantee optimal performance.

This includes undergoing WoolSafe test methods to gauge product acceptability, or making sure cleaning products serve their intended purpose without a harmful effect on wool carpets or rugs.

In order to earn the WoolSafe Approved Certification Mark, Mohawk FloorCare Essentials was evaluated on the following characteristics:

  • No oxidizing or reducing agents are present: may cause bleaching or alteration of carpet colors.
  • Low alkalinity: a difficult–to–neutralize, slightly alkaline product may have a worse effect than an initially more alkaline, but easily neutralized chemical.
  • Cleaning performance: should meet an acceptable standard for the type of product.
  • Re–soiling characteristics: cleaned carpets should not re–soil more quickly than the carpet did before cleaning.
  • Effect on color fastness: should not cause color bleeding or a change in color of dyed carpets.
  • Spot removal performance: must reach an acceptable level of spot removal ability based on the type of spot remover.
  • pH level.

Earning this distinction is another way Mohawk is committed to providing you the most effective cleaning systems available. Click here for additional information on WoolSafe testing methods and WoolSafe Certification.
