Tips on choosing the right flooring for your pet
There are a few different types of flooring you can choose from when you have pets in your home. The best type of flooring for pets really depends on the animal, their habits, and your lifestyle. Below we will take a look at some popular flooring choices for people with pets.
Some people believe that hardwood is the best option for pets because it is easy to clean and durable. However, if you have a pet that likes to scratch or chew on things, this may not be the best option for you. Hardwood floors can also be very slippery for pets, which can lead to accidents, especially with young boisterous dogs as they will often slip when excited on hardwood floors.
Another popular type of flooring for pets is carpet. Carpet is soft and comfortable for animals, and it can help trap dirt and hair. However, carpets can also be difficult to clean and can harbour bacteria and allergens. If you have pets that like to dig or scratch at the carpet, this may not be the best option for you.
Laminate flooring is a good choice for people who have pets because it is durable and easy to clean. Laminate floors are also scratch-resistant, so they are a good option if you have a pet that likes to scratch or chew on things. However, as mentioned above with hardwood flooring, laminate floors can also be slippery for pets, so you may want to consider using a rug in areas where your pet spends a lot of time.
Finally, vinyl flooring is another good option for people with pets. Vinyl flooring is durable and easy to clean, and it is also non-slip. This is a good option for people who have pets that like to run around or play.
No matter what type of flooring you choose for your home, it is important to always be mindful of your pet’s habits and needs. If you have any questions about which type of flooring would be best for your pet, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 02380 365046.
