There are many flooring options and choices available on the market for pet owners.
From slipping and sliding, to scratches, stains and accidents…choosing the right flooring material for your home can be a challenge and seem quite daunting.
At Flooring Xtra we can provide you with expert advice and guidance on which flooring solution is best for your home and lifestyle. Our Pet-Friendly Flooring options do not compromise on style.
As a pet owner, you can have the modern home you have always dreamed of, whilst protecting the look, feel, style and longevity of your flooring.
Cleaning Tips for Flooring
Having pets indoors can rapidly increase the wear and tear on ordinary flooring.
We’ve all been in the tricky situation of watching your pup bolt inside with mud on their paws, recklessly sliding down the hallway.
It is safe to assume when your pet comes indoors, nature comes in with them.
To prevent the possibility of water damage or staining, it is important to attend to accidents immediately. Our Hybrid, Vinyl and Laminate flooring options have waterproof and water-resistant qualities that make this a simple task. Cleaning and maintaining your flooring can be easily managed with a quick vacuum or sweep. Another alternative is to use a damp mop or cloth to wipe away any dirt.
Caring for Your Flooring
To ensure the longevity of your flooring, it is important to be a responsible pet owner. Regular grooming isn’t just essential for your pet’s wellbeing, but also for maintaining your flooring.
Reduce the possibility of floor scratches, by keeping your pets nails well-trimmed. It also improves their traction, creating less excitable slipping when they overhear the words ‘walk’ or ‘treat’.
Even though our Pet-Friendly flooring options have been designed with accidents in mind, it is important to house train your pets. We understand that this takes time, so the waterproof and water-resistant features in our hard flooring options will help minimise damage to your flooring in the meantime.
Finally, consider introducing a rug in high traffic areas. Rugs are not only an excellent addition when styling a home, they also protect the flooring underneath.
