Pet Friendly Flooring, Pet Friendly Home

20th May 2024

Your pets are a part of your family, so it's important to consider them when making flooring decisions. A pet-friendly home is more than just a cozy place to sleep and a bowl of food, it's a home that can handle the wear and tear of life with your four-legged friend. If you have pets and you have floors, Georgia Carpet can help you make your home a little more pet-friendly with scratch-resistant flooring that's easy to clean, stylish and completely functional.

Durable by Design

The main thing you'll want to look for when choosing pet-friendly flooring is durability. Pets, especially dogs, can be notoriously hard on floors. From nails and claws to the occasional accident, your flooring has to stand up to a lot. Fortunately, there are several great flooring options available that are specifically made to withstand the unique demands of living with a furry friend.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is a popular choice for pet-friendly homes. The flooring boasts a scratch-resistant surface and waterproof core, allowing it to stand up well to the unique challenges of living with a pet. Additionally, luxury vinyl comes in a wide range of styles and designs, so you can find flooring that looks like hardwood, tile or even natural stone. Achieve any aesthetic without sacrificing strength by choosing luxury vinyl flooring from Georgia Carpet. Not sure where to start? Browse the COREtec collection for a good combination of durability, quality and value.

Tile Flooring

When you need durable flooring that is scratch-resistant and nearly impossible to stain, think of tile flooring. While it's possible to crack tile, the flooring is easy to clean and maintain, providing a hygienic surface that's resistant to odors and won't trap allergens. Tile can also be cold underfoot, which can help keep pets cooler in the summer. For those in a cold climate, a radiant heating system can be installed beneath the tiles for added warmth and comfort for pets and people alike.

Engineered Hardwood

Just because you have pets doesn't mean you can't have gorgeous wood floors. Engineered hardwood is a pet-friendly alternative to solid hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood is made from multiple layers of wood veneers that are bonded together to create a stable flooring product. This construction also helps minimize the risk of warping or other types of moisture damage, making engineered wood flooring a great choice for homes with pets (or kids).

Care and Maintenance

In addition to being durable and water-resistant, pet-friendly flooring should also be easy to clean. Accidents happen and being able to clean them up quickly without any stains or smells is key. Choose a flooring material that can be wiped clean to make it easy to maintain a clean and hygienic home, no matter how many pets you have.

Creating a pet-friendly home starts from the ground up. Choosing flooring materials that can withstand the stress of a pet underfoot is key to creating a home that's comfortable for you and your four-legged friends.
