Pet-Friendly Flooring Facts That Are Important For Pet Owners

If you have pets, then you’re surely looking for a floor covering that will not only meet your needs but accommodate theirs as well. It can be tricky, especially with carpet flooring, to find pet-friendly flooring that truly delivers.

You’ll need specific characteristics to make sure your floors perform well under the added pressure. For instance, an easy to clean floor is a must, which is one that is a bit more durable and stain-resistant than the average floor covering. We’re going to look deeper into those needs now.

Your Pet-Friendly Flooring Is Closer Than You Think

Many floor coverings will be perfect for your home when you're a pet owner. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles, for instance, offer excellent 100% waterproof protection, scratch resistance, and easy to clean features that make it perfect for every room. Even carpet can be a great choice when you opt for features like built-in stain and odor protection which is found in SmartStrand carpet.

Your pet-friendly floors also come in ceramic or porcelain tile. These materials also offer waterproof features and is incredibly durable, even under heavy traffic. It’s also easy to clean and prohibits the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria, so your floors smell fresher longer.

Laminate is often a choice for pet-owners, as it comes in a water-resistant variety which can give you more time to clean up damp paw prints or accidents that can happen when you’re away from home for too long.

No matter which floor covering you choose, your pet-friendly floors are best installed by professionals. They offer a great amount of experience for just this type of flooring as well as any necessary special tools to help get the job done right.

Of all the hard flooring options, vinyl is considered the most comfortable for four-legged friends. Vinyl is softer than hardwood and tile, and most types have a slip resistant coating that will help your pets keep their balance as they play.
