Learn more about caring for premium soft carpet.

Welcome To Comfort

We all love Mohawk’s luxurious premium soft carpets. Sinking your feet into extraordinarily soft, ultra-plush carpeting that cradles you in comfort with every step it’s pure bliss. Even better, Mohawk’s promise of quality and durability allows you to feel good about your purchase for years to come.

Mohawk’s soft carpets are available in a variety of fiber types which all offer inherent advantages based on your busy lifestyle. Whether you prefer PET carpet with its stain-free characteristics, wear-free nylon with its durability guarantee or the worry-free advantages of high-performing SmartStrand, you’ll find Mohawk has the absolute softest carpet available.

Caring For Your Soft Carpet

If you’re excited about installing luxuriously soft carpet in your home, Mohawk shares your excitement! Here, we have outlined simple reminders around taking great care of your new soft carpet.

Mohawk premium soft carpets are extremely durable and many contain two or three times the amount of fiber of ordinary soft yarns, which actually increases the carpet’s performance and durability. Mohawk floors aren’t just the softest; they’re also the best-performing.

Mohawk premium soft carpets need regular maintenance just like any other carpet. The warranty brochure you received with your purchase provides details about your carpet type as well as cleaning instructions, spot removal tips and recommendations for normal care and maintenance.

Regular vacuuming is a crucial part of carpet maintenance. It’s important to note that certain vacuums and vacuum features work better than others for premium soft carpets, as the increased number of soft fibers can make some vacuums difficult to push. Your existing vacuum may not work on premium soft carpet; however, a number of well-suited vacuums are available at various retailers’ in a range of prices.

Selecting the Right Vacuum

When it comes to vacuums, one size does not fit all. It’s important to note that your current vacuum may not work well on your fabulous new soft carpet. Over the past several years, vacuum manufacturers have focused on creating extremely high suction vacuums. High suction vacuums perform well on low pile carpets and hard surface flooring. However, most do not work well on thicker, high pile carpets, like Mohawk’s softest offerings.

So, which vacuum should you purchase? Mohawk has conducted in-depth vacuum testing and noted the feedback from our soft carpet customers to create an updated list of recommended vacuums.

When vacuuming premium soft carpets or high pile, wool or wool-blend look for these features:

  • Adjustable Height Use the highest setting where appropriate
  • Efficient Airflow Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction
  • Large Wheels Vacuum should glide easily across the carpet

Vacuum Buyer's Guide

Proper care and maintenance of your new soft carpets will ensure that they stay beautiful longer, and frequent vacuuming is an essential part of carpet care. Mohawk has created a Vacuum Buyer’s Guide to simplify the vacuum selection process.

Mohawk has compiled vacuum recommendations based on the Carpet and Rug Institute Seal of Approval, thorough internal testing and feedback from our customers. For specific information pertaining to vacuum models, please contact the manufacturer directly.
