Being a quarter way into 2021, the team at Flooring Liquidators knows renovation and construction season is right around the corner. If there's a furry friend to consider before embarking on the project, we can help with the right selection. With so many flooring options available on the market, finding the right may be difficult - but it won’t be impossible with us. Let’s look at three main flooring materials and go through some of the pros and cons of each installation.
Of all the types of flooring, tiles are arguably the best if the goal is a pet-friendly option.
- Pros: sleek, easy to clean, scratch-resistant, stain and water-proof
- Cons: cold, hard surface, slippery, expensive
It’s pretty clear to see why tiles are hailed as one of the best solutions when it comes to pet-friendly solutions. Easy to clean makes them easy to maintain. Waterproof is key when it comes to accidents, particularly if the pet is young or untrained. Another great perk is that tiles are not easy to scratch or damage. This makes tiles a great addition to any home with active pets.
For beautiful and comfortable flooring that is also easy to clean, vinyl is the way to go. These floors require minimal maintenance. In fact the list of pros is rather extensive compared to the list of cons:
- Pros: durable, affordable, scratch and stain-resistant, easy to clean, water-resistant, low allergen, beautiful and more.
- Cons: can dull easily, inconsistent quality, difficult to remove
As you can see, there are a plethora of benefits to installing vinyl floors. Not only can they help warm up the space, there’s a wide range of looks to choose from. This makes incorporating the floor into the existing aesthetic that much easier. Moreover, if the pet has an accident, you don't need to worry about stains setting in either. Easy to clean and maintain ranks this flooring option high on the list.
While not everyone’s first pick, if one prefers the look and variety carpets have to offer, then this is definitely an option:
- Pros: comfortable, offers variety, keeps area warm, creates padding, wide ranging price points
- Cons: stains, difficult to clean, can house allergen, prone to wear and tear
With the disadvantages often over-weighing the advantages of a carpet installation, people have created solutions such as stain-resistant carpets and those that neutralize odors. Some carpets even offer protection against pet hair, ensuring that along with any debris stays on the surface. So if the clean-up is the only concern, carpets are still in the running.
If this list didn’t help narrow things down, it may be worth consulting a professional. Not only will they be able to guide you through the ideal selections depending on the type of pet, they will also be able to further explain the pros and cons of each flooring type. A personalized recommendation is the best way to go when it comes to choosing the ideal flooring material.
