WHAT PET-OWNERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF WHEN SHOPPING FOR FLOORING

One property you should consider when choosing the floor is resistant to wear and tear from pets claws.

Comfort is an important consideration when selecting flooring. Stone tiling can be a less desirable option because, while it is extremely resistant to scratching and durable, it can be harder and less forgiving for pets who walk and lie on it.

A dog with very long nails will have trouble with traction. A slippery surface like hardwood flooring could cause an exaggerated dog to slide down the corridor, trying to greet you at the front door.

CARPET

You will enjoy many benefits from the warmth and comfort of carpeting to your home to the diversity of colors and styles to give it a unique look. Carpets for cats and dogs are not all created equal.

Choose a carpet that does not have loops as these can be caught on the claws of your pets. Although wool is strong and resistant to staining, nylon is cost-effective and durable. The tiles can be easily removed and replaced.

If you plan to have carpet in your home with pets then it's best to put it in low-traffic areas like bedrooms.

  • Pros:

    The comfort carpet offers under paw is the most important benefit. Carpet offers comfort for pets, making it a great place to rest and for cats to climb up from sofas or countertops. You will also find scratches less obvious on the carpet from pet nails.

  • Cons:

    Sometimes it is difficult to clean up spillages and old stains are hard to get rid of. Some of our residential carpets include a water-resistant treatment. You will need to respond quickly to any urine, vomit, or feces stains.

    Carpet can also be more susceptible to pets' wear and tear, especially if there are energetic pets.

CARPET CARE and MAINTENANCE FOR PETS

You can keep your pets' dirt and other items out of the carpet by using doormats to protect their entrances. Dog owners should trim their nails so that they don't cause damage to the carpet.
