“The Carpeting World May Never Be the Same Again”
We’ve decided to go where all other carpet-makers wouldn’t dare to. For two brutal weeks, the aforementioned Ricko will live on 1,040 square feet of SmartStrand carpet in an enclosure designed by HGTV and Mohawk’s expert craftsman Chip Wade.
It is here that Ricko will do everything that is expected of a rhino to do — on SmartStrand.
The dirt your children bring into the house will pale in comparison to Ricko’s mud-caked hoof tracks. Remember the accident that your household pet had on the living room carpet? You haven’t seen or smelled anything like the waste left behind from a pet that weighs almost 1½ tons.
Four “Rhino-cams” will broadcast the entire event live on the web at www.SmartStrandChallenge.com, chronicling Ricko’s every attempt to disprove the amazing nature of SmartStrand carpet. And after it’s all done, Mohawk will clean it with the same product you can buy at participating Floorscapes, ColorCenter and Floorz retailers: Mohawk FloorCare Essentials.
In addition to this mind-boggling endeavor, the site features additional information about Ricko as well as the conservation efforts of the endangered Black Rhinoceros.
An event like the SmartStrand Challenge is simply one that you must see to believe. Witness for yourself something that we’ve said all along: “If it can handle our wildlife, it will handle yours!”
Shaw Floors, one of the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and leading flooring provider, made a GUINESS WORLD RECORDS attempt for the World’s Largest Pie Fight on January 7, 2010 during it’s upcoming 10th annual retailer market event in Dallas. The pie fight took place on Shaw’s Anso nylon carpet to demonstrate Anso nylon’s superior ability to repel stains and to be easily cleaned. The world record attempt will involve 1,200 pies of various flavors including cherry, chocolate and apple, which equates to 3,000 pounds of pie. Following the event, Shaw cleaned the pie-covered carpet and displaed the like-new results on January 8 in the lobby of the Embassy Suites in Grapevine, Texas, the site of Shaw’s winter market.
“We’re confident that Anso nylon could hold up to the challenge posed by hundreds of people throwing hundreds of pies,” said Shaw President Randy Merritt. “Consumers want to know that a food accident won’t ruin their carpet, and although this is an extreme example, we feel that the pie fight has shown how Anso nylon holds up to everyday life. The carpet’s anti-soil properties combined with our R2x® stain-resistance treatment make most common household stains simple to remove.”
The current record of 269 participants was set by the television show LIVE! With Regis and Kelly on September 17, 2009. Shaw’s goal is to have more than 300 official pie throwers participate in Shaw Floor’s world’s Largest Pie Fight. The 60-second pie fight occured at 6 p.m. on January 7, 2010, in a tent adjacent to the Embassy Suites. After the pie fight was completed, Shaw was able to clean the pie-covered carpet and display the like-new results on January 8 in the lobby of the Embassy Suites.
In connection with the pie fight, Shaw planned to make a monetary donation to the Tarant Area Food Bank, a local affiliate of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic-relief hunger charity. The company’s donation would provide 40,000 to 70,000 meals for hungry individuals in 13 Texas counties.
