Flooring is just one of the many options you get to select when you build your Pasco County new homes. Carpeting comes standard in areas of your home such as the family room, living room, dining room, bedrooms and hallways. Highland Homes includes Mohawk EverStrand® carpet in all of our homes with a variety of eight colors to select from.

Why is EverStrand® carpet so amazing? EverStrand® is a softer, easier to clean and longer lasting carpet than many competitors, and is made from 100 percent recycled content to be friendly to the earth, as well. Mohawk recycles more than 3 billion plastic bottles a year into EverStrand® carpet and the recycled content is fully certified. Not only does EverStrand® make a positive global impact, but it provides comfort and durability in your home and comes with a Scotchgard™ treatment to help prevent stains.

You can also to choose to upgrade to Mohawk SmartStrand® carpet. SmartStrand® is the only carpet with a built-in stain and soil resistance that will never wear or wash off – it is actually part of the carpet fibers, not just sprayed on. SmartStrand® is also known for its durability and softness. It is very easy to clean using just water, with no chemicals required, which helps to protect your family’s health. Like the EverStrand® carpet, it is environmental friendly because it is made in part from renewable resources.

Mohawk has put this carpet to the test so consumers can see SmartStrand® excel in durability and cleanability – in 2009, SmartStrand® was installed in the pen of a 2,800 pound Rhino for two weeks, to see how it would stand up. Watch the video above to see this incredible challenge and how SmartStrand® held up against one of the largest animals on earth!

In all, the Highland Homes Personal Selection Studio offers three levels of upgrades in the SmartStrand® or EverStrand® lines. You will be pleased with your choice of style, texture and colors that we have to offer for your Florida new homes. Your Design Consultant will help you match your carpet to your lifestyle and needs, and the other features and colors you select when personalizing your home.
