I had some floors installed by Mohawk Flooring in my kitchen and they were great! I liked that it was texturized which gave it a more realistic look because the other ones were really smooth so they looked more fake. Its cost and quality was also really good.
Hello Jeffrey, I'm Laura from Mohawk Flooring - thank you for sending feedback on your carpet! I'm so glad you're already enjoying how stain resistant it is, as well as its beauty and comfortableness! I hope your family, pets included, continue to enjoy the carpet for years to come. Thank you again, and take care-- Laura

We got some small carpet pieces from Mohawk Flooring. It was recommended by The Floor Store because it was pet resistant but it still looked really pretty. We got pieces specific to the size of the room. We cut them out to fit underneath a couch, under the bed, and on the stairs. We really like the way it looks and it feels comfortable. We've had a couple things spilled on it and it came right up. We're happy with it. It came right on time, the installation was perfect, and everything's great about it.
We bought a carpet called Peaceful Moments II from Mohawk Flooring and had it installed in the master bedroom. I really liked the price - it was very good. The carpet is also soft, plush, and thick. It feels so nice to walk on. I love the color, too. We’re very pleased with it.
Mohawk cares about their manufacturing process and do not care about matting which should be part of the warranty. They did not advertise I had to rake the carpet. 1st year in a new condo and I almost rip up the carpet and pay all over again. My god. They say just the used areas are affected. Of course. If you don't walk on the carpet, it won't matt. So, Mohawk is obviously a company you should avoid. They are crooks. Find a different company that understands we sweep the carpet. I'm 73 and must rake and sweep - lots of work.
We got tiles from Mohawk Flooring. It was the first place we went in and we were pleased at their selection. It happened to be something that was on sale at the time. It is for a rental property that we have and we wanted something that would look good but also be inexpensive. We were very pleased with the young lady that helped us at the store. We explained exactly what we wanted and what our price range was and she was able to direct us to a very nice product that we liked.
It was to be installed in a laundry room. And originally, she may have been bent on removing the molding around the floor and the linoleum that was on the floor. When the installer came he said it was better to leave the linoleum down, which we did not know, so we let him go ahead with that. But they did deduct the price of the demolition, which we had paid up front. I have tenants in there and they were very pleased with it. We have linoleum as well in our laundry room and we are going to replace it with a tile product. And we would go back to Mohawk Flooring because they were very professional.

I purchased Mohawk tiles and had these installed in my hallway and my dining room and I love it. It cleans out nicely and is easy to mop and scrub. After eleven years, my tiles still has held up very well and its colors held nicely. I'm hoping not to replace it and actual beginning to look for carpeting as well as some vinyl flooring for my kitchen.
Hi Anita, I'm Laura from Mohawk. I'm really sorry to hear about your experience with the sale advertisement. Was this a coupon (or a form) that was on the Mohawk website, in which you provide some contact info and receive a list of participating retailers? If you happen to recall, please let me know. Though all retailers selling Mohawk products don't participate in all sales, we try to give folks a list of the retailers in their area who are participating, once the customer has signed up for the coupon/sale on our website. Take care-- Laura

Mohawk came out with an ad that carpets were 50% off for one weekend. They described the carpets that were on sale and didn’t give any style or names. So we called around to the different dealers to see who could come out, measure and give us a price on the carpets that were advertised because the whole idea was to take advantage of the sale. The first person came out and showed us some carpets but he didn’t know what we were talking about from the sale. We then called the second person and he didn't know it either.
I called their customer service and the lady didn’t even know what carpets were on sale either. Nobody knew anything about what carpets they were advertising, it’s a waste of advertising dollars! It totally looked like a ploy to get people in the stores and purchase. It was bait-and-switch. I’ve been in business all my life but I have never experienced such a chaotic cluster. It was really a learning experience for me and I have never seen anything like this.
Then my daughter and my son-in-law were interested in recarpeting their entire house. They’re very busy people and they don’t have time to go and spend two hours in a store. So in a case like this, they were expecting the retailer to bring samples to their home and show them the best carpets that the retailer could have that’s on sale in the ad. We then called the carpet people. They used keywords to describe to us the materials of the carpet that they’re so proud of. We then told them to narrow it down to the thickest, densest, the best and highest quality carpet, then bring those samples and tell us what that name is.
Even with that, no one could help us. Consequently, my daughter and son-in-law were not able to buy anything because they could not find anyone that knew what they were doing. They are both in the science field and they want the facts, they want to know what they’re purchasing. I thought that less than 40% of people buy carpet that way. So I know that what they were asking made the process a little more difficult but the ad is the ad.
I concluded that in all this mess, Mohawk does poor marketing where no one knew what we were talking about because the ad doesn’t reference anything. They don’t give a number or a name, so which then it’s so big it makes you think, “What a joke. This isn’t even real.” And then for the retailers to not even know about it, it’s like a scam.
Then I called this one store and left a message. Somebody called me back and we had a nice conversation. She thanked me for my call and I told her about their sale that was going on for two more days and my son-in-law and daughter wanted to buy a carpet. I suggested having her call my daughter and son-in-law and making appointment to have one of her salespeople go out with the carpet, and if maybe she wanted to upgrade the sale reasonably, give them just a couple of dollars more. I also told her not to bait and switch my daughter and son-in-law, and never bring them a carpet that’s twice as expensive. I then asked my daughter two days later if this woman had ever called them or anyone from that company, and nobody did. It’s just amazing.
My daughter and son-in-law had a white carpet when they lived in Chicago. They had an issue with one of their cats in their home and they had to replace the carpet in their dining room. They picked the color as well as the carpet and the people came to install it but they sent the wrong one, and it was right before a holiday. The man at the store said, “I don’t have that carpet that you ordered and wanted so I’m just gonna go ahead and upgrade it and put this in. It’s the same color.” And they’re like, “Whatever you have to do on your end. We need carpet and this is what we picked.”
The man sold them an upgraded carpet for the same price as what they had ordered so they were very pleased with that carpet which was a Mohawk. Then I asked them what carpet that was. They said they didn’t know. They thought it was comparable to the ones that were on sale because it was the same strand. I can guarantee that they would say yes if somebody would ask them to buy Mohawk if it has a really good sale, after everything they’ve gone through. For me, I probably would say no as I’m not that stupid. However, if I went to a carpet warehouse that I could touch the carpet and be happy with looking at it and knowing that I liked that style means I would say yes. But from a little sample and a sale ad, I don’t know that I would trust them to. It’s a poor experience with them.
We bought Mohawk's laminate flooring, thru the floor store and it was installed in our kitchen and living room hall. I like its varying pattern, and I'm happy with it.

I recently purchased carpet at Home Depot in Murrieta, CA. I did some research online before making my purchase, and it was my goal to get a carpet that DOESN'T leave any vacuum or foot print marks. I came across this carpet online. According to the description online, this carpet claims to have all of the characteristics that I wanted: "Designed to Boost your homes decor and handle traffic with ease, the denser, fuller strands of this premium BCF PET carpet help prevent footprints and vacuum marks and naturally resist pilling and fuzzing."
It took about 2 or more weeks to deliver the carpet, but I was so disappointed when the carpet arrived during the installation day. The carpet showed several footprints and marks after the installers had done their job. I didn't think much about it on the first day. I figured it just needed to be vacuumed. We let the installers know about this (JW Flooring), and they told us this carpet was designed to prevent carpet marks - Which wasn't true at all!
I went back to home depot to tell them about the situation, and they had me file a claim. They asked me to send a couple of pictures to them. They were also supposed to send an inspector to my house to see the carpet, but nobody ever came! Not even an employee from Home Depot. I waited about 16 days before I got a response from Mohawk. I had to call Home Depot because it was taking too long to hear back from them. I was NOT HAPPY with the short response I received: "Thank you for providing a sample and/or picture of the flooring related to the above claim. Our Quality Control team has reviewed and confirmed that the product meets manufacturing specifications. As a result, we have concluded our review of this claim."
REALLY? IT took Mohawk 15 days to tell me the product meets manufacturing specifications??? This is supposed to be a high quality carpet, but it already looks old with all of the track marks. I've never been so unhappy with any purchase I've made at home depot. I went back to home depot the next day, and I asked to speak with an assistant manager. She was not very helpful at all - and told me there was nothing that could be done. I continued to show her pictures of the carpet, and it wasn't until another worker that arrived that she seemed to care about my situation. The other employee said there was definitely something wrong with the carpet and he told me he was going to have an inspector come to my house.
Long story short, the inspector never came to my house. I had to call home depot again. This time I spoke to the general manager. He apologized for all of the trouble I was experiencing, and he told me to bring an 18" by 18" sample of my carpet so it could be sent to Mohawk. It has been a couple of days now, and I still have not heard anything from Home Depot. I am expecting family to visit, and I haven't even moved my furniture back because I am so dissatisfied with this carpet. I really need HELP. This is taking too long, and I feel like I'm being ignored.
The website is misleading and it should NOT SAY that this carpet helps prevent footprints and vacuum marks. The sample at home depot was so small, it was virtually impossible to see any marks on the carpet. The samples were about 2" by 2". And one larger sample was on a hinge so I was unable to put the sample down and step on it.
I have a feeling Mohawk will not respond to me at all based on my first experience. I am buying this carpet for my parents - and it's a shame that my money is going to waste. I don't know what to do anymore. I have attached pictures of the carpet as it appears now. I've tried everything and there is nothing I can do to make the carpet look decent.
Hi Nora, I'm Laura from Mohawk Flooring. First off, I'm extremely sorry for your experience with your carpet. I've sent your comments to our Consumer Affairs department so that we can follow up with you. I apologize again. Take care-- Laura

There are not enough words to describe how disappointed I am with this carpet and in particular how Mohawk Consumer Affairs has handled my claim. I purchased the SmartStrand carpet for my entire house and it did not live up to the Mohawk advertised claim that "It is the only carpet with permanent built-in stain and soil protection that never wears or washes off." The carpet stained and then the color faded from professional cleaning (per Mohawk recommendation). I submitted a claim for replacement, only for the area of the stains not the entire house. Mohawk has offered to only cover 40% of the cost of the rug materials only. That means I would be responsible for the stained rug removal and new carpet installation. I live on a fixed income. I do not have the resources to take on that additional expense.
More importantly though, I would not need to take on the cost of carpet removal and installation IF the SmartStrand carpet had lived up to the Mohawk advertised claims. Of equal and perhaps greater frustration has been the lack of personal communication and interaction with the Consumer Affairs department. It's been a real case study on how not to create positive consumer trust and customer service experience.
I had Somerton Rustic Barn Hickory from Mohawk installed in my basement. Mohawk was the best and I prefer their quality compared to other brands. I was very satisfied with the material and I like its durability. However, some contractor I couldn't even speak to, took five boxes during the installation. They were going to return it, then they said there wasn't any need to return but they're reimbursing us for it. Everything went well.
I had SmartStrand Mohawk carpet installed in my family room. I went with their product because of their warranty and reputation. I like the comfort and stain-resistance of the carpet. It was great and easy experience overall.
Hello Kathy, I'm Laura with Mohawk Flooring. I'm really sorry for your experience with your hardwoods, and I apologize that we no longer manufacture the flooring you purchased. In order to get the closest match, you may want to ask your retailer if they carry unfinished Brazilian Cherry, and then have it finished on site to best match the color of your floor currently. Brazilian Cherry can darken significantly over time, so your flooring will likely not look identical now to how it did straight from the box - an on-site finish would be your best bet to matching it. I'm very sorry again, Kathy. --Laura

We purchased engineer wood from Mohawk Flooring and installed it in our dining room. It's 3/8th inch thick, which was what my husband wanted and we liked its color. There's no problem with the flooring. We looked at a bunch of different floorings and that was the one that we like the most. Unfortunately, I am not happy with it now.
We paid top dollar for the flooring, but they never said anything to us about it being discontinued. We purchased it in 2014 and it was discontinued in 2011. Now we want to do our office and we wanted to get the same wood also in our bedroom but we can't get it because they discontinued it. I've tried to contact Mohawk and I had somebody call me back, and they talked to me and they said that they can't cross-reference it because they have no way to. They told me that there's no way they can get me backstock. There is none anywhere.
I haven't been able to get ahold of anybody higher up rather than somebody in the technical department that doesn't care much. The guy called me and said, "I received your letter. They've asked me to help you. The only problem is I'm on vacation for 10 days." Really? He's going on vacation for 10 days and he called me to tell me that he doesn't have time to really help me. So why isn't there somebody else in the department? I couldn't believe it. When he said they discontinued that flooring in 2011, somebody else should have told me that when we purchased it. To try and get help from them to find what the best solution is, that if they discontinue a product, they'll usually put something else that's comparable back in. They don't to want to help at all.
I would not recommend them because their customer service stinks. It's not necessarily their fault that we went to them and they didn't tell us that the floor had been discontinued and that they charged us top dollar for the flooring. That was our fault. But they should help us because they're gonna know what floor and colors match to that discontinued product.
Purchased $3,000 of Mohawk carpeting in August 2015 and it started breaking down by November 2015. Warranty inspection completed but conclusion clearly not objective. I started following up by Feb of 2016 less than 6 months from installation. I selected the carpet because of the resilience ratings. Truly Tender III 58 Oz carpet was horrible.
Every place we have normal use (traffic areas) and on the side of the beds where we get in and out daily - it is totally matted and shot. Places where we have less use: sunroom, guest bedroom etc... It is just fine. In all cases we vacuum weekly with the same vacuum. Those areas look fine but the areas in question look like we bought cheap carpeting and do not maintain it. It was clear the inspector just wanted to keep her job by indicating that we did not maintain the carpet correctly. That is an unfounded conclusion based upon the fact that we vacuum weekly and have not had issues with any of our carpets in the past. We now have to rip out the carpet and start completely over. Mohawk's warranty is a sham; they do not stand behind their product and they do not have objective inspectors.
My SmartStrand lasted just about one year. It is now 3 years old, and it's almost matted flat and is untwisted. Warranty was for 25 years!! Multiple claims have been turned down. Lowe's isn't doing anything either except offering different material at their cost. I have spent over $5000 on this junk.This warranty mean nothing... Don't ever buy Mohawk products...
Hi Angie, I'm Laura from Mohawk. While I'm really glad to hear that you like your laminate flooring, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience with your installer.

We appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you like your laminate so far. Thank you Angie, and take care-- Laura

The color of the Aston Oak laminated flooring that I got from Mohawk was what I was looking for. I also like the thickness, however, the service is bad and their ethics are horrible. They've installed it in three bedrooms, a loft, a hallway and the stairs but they haven't completed the job yet. They gave me a five-day window to finish it out but this has been going on for over 30 days so I'm not happy with that at all. I had to call and ask what's the hold-up. They said they can't finish it until my bathroom tiles are done. But as for the outcome of the work, the floors look nice and the workmanship is fine.
I purchased Mohawk carpet and installed it in my bedroom. I picked the coloring and I liked it. I also like the texture and the kind of shaggy type. The flooring has met my expectations and the experience went great.
Hi Edie, I'm Laura with Mohawk Flooring. Thank you for letting us know about your experience with your EverStrand carpet! It's great to hear that you're enjoying its softness and how easy it is to clean. I'm really glad we had the right carpet for your family's needs, and that it's proven to be a great value for you. Thank you again, and take care-- Laura

We were originally looking at an EverStrand carpet because of its value and longevity. We had it installed in the stairs, on the upstairs landing, and in two bedrooms of our home. It’s a great carpet and I like its color. It feels great to walk on and easy to care for. I definitely would recommend Mohawk.
We’d already purchased some Mohawk carpeting for our family room. We liked the brand so we also got it when did the other rooms. We got blue carpeting from them and we liked the color and the grain of it. And the price was right - it was on sale. It’s in our grandkids’ playroom and when they come over, they love it. It’s comfortable for them and it is nice and plush for them to sit on the floor. And me, being a grandma, it’s easy for me to sit on the floor, where it wasn’t with the old carpeting. We love the carpeting but the customer service from the floor store was not excellent. We were expecting a couple of different phone calls back and never got it. But other than that, the floor itself is working out exactly how we wanted it.
I purchased a Mohawk laminate flooring and this was installed in the living, dining and family rooms, back hallway and upstairs hallway in the home I'm selling. The cost was good and I like its color and texture. I have experienced however some dings in several places where little chunks of the floor have come out, which I'm not happy about. Nobody is living in the house right now and it’s only a couple of workers who's been there. I'm going to push harder for hardwood next time when we do something like this.
As a cash maker, I'm picky but Mohawk Flooring has been easy to work with and has good stuff. A guy on a wheelchair was on their floor and I didn’t see too many wheelchair marks so we bought it. For the most part, I like the quality of their floor, and I put some down about a year ago and it held up pretty well. I am an architectural woodworker, so I’m pretty familiar how to run things through machines. Less than 10% out of my last purchase are warped and crooked boards and I wasn’t able to use them. When I saw it, I tried to put it in but I had to take it back out because it wasn’t working quite right. I can tell from experience it just didn’t go through the machine properly. But that wasn’t enough to make a big deal. I didn’t run out of material because of it.
Mohawk Flooring had the proper shade that we wanted for the carpet so we got carpeting on a flight of stairs and also laminate flooring at the bottom of the stairs. They're both doing the job. The cat likes to scratch the carpet and it's not harming it a bit.
Hello Sally, I'm Laura and I work with Mohawk. Thank you for sending us feedback on your Karastan carpet! I apologize for any confusion from the sales rep - I'm glad everything was straightened out and that the carpet is performing well for you. You must have a SmartStrand carpet, judging by the stain resistance you describe. Isn't it awesome to see a spill just bead up and sit on top of the carpet, and not soak in? Saves a lot of headaches! Thank you again Sally-- Laura

I bought a Karastan carpet from Mohawk Flooring and I love it. Their sales rep was really good when we picked out the carpet but when the order went in, she just had a lot of confusion on it so it took three calls to get it straightened out but otherwise, she did a good job. When I spilled tea on my brand new carpet it just laid right on top, bubbled up, and it didn't go in the carpet. I got a rag real fast, there's no stain, no nothing. I had a wonderful experience with Mohawk.
I apologize again, Lisa! Take care-- Laura

I looked at a few different brands, and I liked Mohawk better than the others. They’ve been good to work with, but my carpet still has a problem. We have a big family room in our basement where the two carpets are seamed together, but there are two different colors - one is a lot darker than the other. It’s supposed to be the same. The store that I bought the carpet from came in and replaced it once. And then, they came in and looked at it again this past week and it’s worse than it was the first time. It's a little frustrating, and taking the furniture out repetitively is not working great for us. I love the carpet but if they can’t get the color right, it’s not going to work.
I have an interior design business, and often get Mohawk products for clients. I didn't have any problems purchasing from them. They have a fine product which I often show to my clients.
We were shopping at The Floor Store and they gave us various options. We liked the cost of Mohawk better considering the quality because everything else we considered were a lot more expensive. We also liked the thickness and the feel of the carpet.
We hated the carpet that came with our house, so we saved up money to put in a new carpet, and we wanted to get a nice product and only do the carpeting once. The local store that sells flooring had worked with Mohawk before and got a lot of information. The salesman did a good job, gave us a lot options, and went over the benefits of the Mohawk flooring. I liked the idea that the stain resistance was built into the fabric, and wasn't a spray add-on. My wife liked the carpet and I didn't think it was bad, so that sold the deal and we had Mohawk install the carpet in our home. They did a good job in installing our carpet so between the quality of the carpet and not having any hassles with our installer, we had a well-rounded experience. It was a pain in the ass shopping for a floor, but we thought out our final decision well, and I'm happy that it worked out really well.
I work for a major developer who uses Mohawk Flooring. I found something that was in one of our models that I like and I chose that. My overall experience with them was easy and pleasant.
We went to a local flooring company and we left it up to them to recommend a flooring. We went in, picked out the carpet, the color and stuff, and went with their recommendation. It was efficient and it’s painless. Karastan flooring was installed in our home, our first product from Mohawk Flooring. It’s only been six weeks and the product is holding up well. It hasn’t come apart yet, so that’s good.
I'm so sorry again for your experience, Jolene. Take care -- Laura

We bought a beautiful light-colored Mohawk carpet from Home Depot a few years ago. In less than a years, we had dark colored stains on it. We had the carpet professionally cleaned, as per the warranty requirements, but the cleaners could not remove the stains. Since we were dealing with issues related to my Mother's death at the time, the stains affected just a small part of the carpet, and since Home Depot said all they would do is replace the small part of the carpet affected, we didn't pursue it. Too exhausted by my Mom's death, etc. and it was in a limited area.
Now virtually all of the carpet is stained, with black, circular stains, and we have been advised by a professional that there's no mold. In fact, after cutting a piece of the stained area out, it's not coming from underneath the carpet - it's coming from WITHIN the carpet! We have been told it's probably petroleum not properly washed out of the fiber during the manufacturing process. We even have a big black stain UNDER the couch, where no one has ever walked directly on the carpet! Can someone help us?
