As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of tufted and woven carpet, Mohawk also offers carpet cushion products.
These carpet cushions utilize at least 90 percent pre-consumer recycled materials. We purchase excess foam from furniture and mattress manufacturers, as well as our own internal materials, to make rebond padding. This process diverted over 120 million pounds of foam from landfills in 2009.
Our synthetic cushion requires very little virgin material since approximately 90 percent of material comes from pre-consumer waste that is converted into raw materials. Much of this material comes from our own production facilities. In 2009 we converted 14 million pounds of waste into quality underlayment for all types of carpet.
