When it comes to finding a good hardwood flooring option for your pets, the most important aspect to consider is its hardness or density. The best types of wood to use include oak, cherry, maple, and mahogany because they are among the hardest and most dense wood species on the market. These species are far more durable and less prone to scratching, which will help the wood look great even as your pets make themselves at home on it. Also, when choosing a hardwood option in a pet-friendly home make sure that your hardwood floors are finished with a water-resistant seal. This will help ensure that your floors will stand up to accidents and spills caused by your pets.
Engineered Hardwood is often a smart choice to use in pet-friendly homes and offices. Because it’s crafted by layering a thin slice of hardwood on a plywood base, this type of hardwood flooring is significantly more resistant to moisture.
