Pet Friendly Flooring
We all love our pets. What we don’t love is their uncanny ability to leave marks in our flooring no matter how we try to keep their nails trimmed. So what can you do when your floor looks like a hockey rink right after a game? Here are some flooring options you may want to consider in your pet-friendly household.
Luxury vinyl is an ideal option for homes with pets. It is affordable compared to other flooring options and is extremely durable. Vinyl provides traction, keeping your pet from slipping and sliding. It also promotes low allergen levels meaning that pet dander is less likely to be an issue and can easily be swept up. Many luxury vinyl planks and tiles are water proof or resistant to moisture, which means you can confidently clean up pet accidents even if you cannot get to them right away. They also feature a core that inhibits the growth of harmful mould and mildew, and prevents pet odours from developing in your flooring.
Tile is another pet friendly flooring solution you can consider for your home. Tile is easy to clean and maintain, and features naturally beautiful patterns that can hide dirt and pet accidents if you cannot get to them right away. Tiles are easy to clean and care for, so you can easily sweep up any pet fur. Most porcelain tiles are rated waterproof, which is great if you are about to get a new puppy and need a floor that can handle multiple challenges for a few years to come.
You read that right – there is such a thing as pet friendly carpeting. There is no reason to sacrifice comfort for performance when you can have both. Our exclusive carpet brands such as Relax, it’s… Lees® and Oath by Resista® are specifically made with pets in mind. They feature the ultimate stain resistance, and can be easily cleaned. Many of our pet friendly carpets feature our exclusive H2O™ technology, which revolutionizes waterproof carpet that can not only protect itself but also your sub floors from permanent damage.
Having a pet does not mean that you have to resign yourself to ugly floors. For more information about flooring options that would be suitable for your pets, please feel free to contact us today.
