Our Opinion

Mohawk Remarkable Vision is a wonderful carpet choice for a busy family room or living room. The color line will do an excellent job of hiding dirt and spills. Plus, with the Mohawk SmartStrand Technology, this carpet will last for a very long time.

It is a thick piece of carpet, that will help maintain the appearance, and will allow your family to walk on a soft, plush carpet.

This carpet is on the upper end of products when it comes to price. If you are a budget-minded shopper, looking for a carpet that looks nice, but is very inexpensive...this carpet is not the product for you.

On the other hand, if you are at a point in your life, where you are not going to be moving, and you're looking for a piece of carpet that is very thick, and that will last for many, many years, you should certainly look at Remarkable Vision.

The color line is rather small (15 colors). You will most likely find his product on a larger Mohawk Colormax Display.

Not every store will carry this product. Before you start your shopping adventure, you should call ahead to some of your local stores, to discover which stores carry the Mohawk Carpet Brand of products.

Mohawk Carpet Remarkable Vision - SmartStrand Forever Clean

The first thing you should realize about carpet is: not all carpet comes from the same place. Similar to every other type of product, there are many competing brands. In the world of carpet, you have: Shaw, Mannington, Mohawk, Engineered Floors, Fabrica, and many, many more.

They all compete to sell you their products. Each company does its best to develop products to get that leg up. To get that competitive advantage.

Launched back in 2006, SmartStrand Carpet was introduced as the most stain-resistant carpet in the marketplace. SmartStrand is made with DuPont Sorona fiber, a PTT polymer—not to be confused with PET polyester. PTT (polytrimethylene terephthalate) was recognized by the Federal Trade Commission in 2009 as a separate subclass of fiber, known as Triexta. What are the benefits of SmartStrand?

  1. Excellent Stain Resistance

  2. Made in part with annually renewable plant-based materials

  3. Dirt Resistant

  4. Odor Resistant

  5. Wear Resistant

  6. Protection from crushing and matting

"When it comes to a carpet that truly has it all, look no further than SmartStrand. Where traditional carpets fall short, the innovative fibers in SmartStrand Forever Clean offer unbeatable spill protection, permanent stain resistance and long-lasting durability. " - Mohawk

According to Mohawk: "SmartStrand Forever Clean uses a completely different stain protection system built into the fiber’s core. This means SmartStrand Forever Clean never loses its stain resistance and remains the easiest carpet to clean time after time."

Bonus Tip #1: Mohawk Carpet Remarkable Vision Vacuum Requirements

We published a link earlier in this article that discusses warranty information. Mohawk is very particular about the type of vacuum cleaner that should be used on their SmartStrand carpets. You should pay close attention to the warranty guidelines.

In the warranty information, Mohawk Flooring actually has a page on its website dedicated to this information.

We have a blog article, "SmartStrand Carpet Cleaning Guide," that really dives into the details of the SmartStrand warranty. In particular: in order to adhere to the carpet warranty, you need to use an approved vacuum cleaner. Obviously, if you don't already own one of these vacuum cleaners, this will be an added expense to your carpet purchase. Here is the list of approved vacuum cleaners:
