Life Happens is a new residential carpet collection from Shaw that features their new LifeGuard protection system. LifeGuard is a patented revolutionary protection system that covers the entire product, from face fiber to the backing. All Lifeguard carpets are also treated with Shaw’s patented R2X Stain and Soil Repel protection. In addition, the thermoplastic backing gives the carpet a waterproof barrier that prevents liquids from ever soaking into the carpet padding and the subfloor.
The LifeGuard’s patented backing system keeps any liquid from seeping into the carpet backing, which allows for a much easier cleanup and protects against odor-causing spills and pet accidents. In addition, the R2X Stain and Soil Repel Technology gives the carpet an exceptional level of liquid stain resistance because the liquid will stay on the surface of the carpet, just like the picture shows below. Since the liquid stays on top of the carpet and doesn't soak through the backing, you will have more time to notice the spill and clean it up. After the mess has been cleaned up, the carpet also dries rapidly.
All LifeGuard products are designed and fabricated to be recyclable at the end of their lives. The entire carpet is completely recyclable, and is also Cradle to Cradle certified. The video below will explain more about how the carpet is recyclable and Eco-friendly.
The Life Happens carpet collection is great at combating household odors, and they retain their appearance because of the Anso CrushResister High Performance Nylon. These carpets are resistant to shedding so the carpet looks newer longer, the carpet tufts resist being pulled out, the edges will not unravel easily, and the carpet/backing is less likely to suffer delamination. In addition, the carpet is easy to install because the backing is soft and flexible. This carpet bends so well it is perfect for stairs and tight areas, and the softness of the carpet backing helps protect painted baseboards and door casings.
