We all love our furry friends but it is so easy for them to make messes. That is why we recommend you find a floor that allows for easy clean-up and will withstand the everyday wear that comes with pets. There are durable options for all types of flooring. New technologies even allow for a water-resistant carpet but here are a few types of flooring that we highly recommend for pet owners.
Tile flooring has incredible durability which allows it to be scratch resistant. Its’ waterproof abilities allow for easy clean-up. There is a reason tile is such a popular flooring for mudrooms and bathrooms. Tile also doesn’t stain so if you are not fast enough to clean up the mess you don’t have to worry. Which makes it great for puppies who tend to make messes daily. If you have to leave them while you go to work you don’t have to worry about any accidents creating stains.
Laminate is an affordable way to get that beautiful hardwood look without the big price tag. There are excellent laminate products that offer scratch resistance. Which is great when you have pet toenails running around. If you do choose to pick laminate as your flooring we recommend you chose a water-resistant option. This will allow for an easier time cleaning up and your floors will ultimately last longer. Even with the wear and tear that comes with owning a pet.
Engineered Hardwood is another excellent scratch-resistant choice when it comes to flooring that is pet-friendly. Again if you do choose to go with engineered hardwood make sure you chose a water-resistant option. Water resistance is the best way to have your floors withstand the messes your cats and dogs may create.
