Best Flooring Options for Pets
Deciding on the right floor when you are a pet owner is an important choice and one that should not be overlooked. Our fluffy friends can be the greatest joy in our lives, but the mess they bring with them is certainly not! Here at Techflooring, we want to make sure you pick out the best flooring for you and your pet. So, let’s look at different flooring options to help you choose the best one for a happy pet and home.
Traditional hardwood floors are classically stylish and look great in any home. However, they are not the best option for a pet-owning household. Smooth hardwood flooring may make it difficult for your pet to get a solid footing and can be susceptible to scratches. Spills from water bowls, or housetraining accidents, can sometimes stain your hardwood floors if not cleaned up immediately. Don’t let that put you off if you are really keen on getting a wooden floor as smaller, well-trained animals can be absolutely fine with hardwood floors.
Vinyl floorings are one of the most popular choices when it comes to pet owners. The advantages are that it is water-proof, stain-resistant, and very durable. It is also easy to wipe clean should there be any muddy paw prints or spills. Want to learn more about different vinyl flooring options or get a quote? Contact us today for information and advice.
This is a great way to control the mess your animals make. Rugs come in all designs and sizes and are easily removable for cleaning if you need to. This is also a good option to protect your wooden floors from claws and scratching. A rug can also double up as a comfy place for your pet to snooze on.
Laminate floorings are synthetic and come in a variety of styles. They are the perfect option for a pet-loving household as they are very durable and can withstand the comings and goings of your little fluffy friends (and their scratching paws!). Laminate floorings are also more hygienic than traditional wooden floorings and can be hoovered and wiped clean very easily. We love laminate floorings at Techflooring , so get in touch today to browse our different styles or get a quote.
This may come as a surprise, but carpet can be a reasonable option when it comes to pet owners. A carpet with closely knitted fibres is more durable and can work in harmony with your pet. Bear in mind; however, a carpet may be more high maintenance with a pet than a vinyl or laminate floor. But, if your pet is well trained and has its claws trimmed regularly, there is nothing stopping you from getting a cosy carpet. Contact us today to have a look at our carpet range.
