pet friendly flooring from Carpet One

Pet Friendly Flooring San Rafael, CA

Around 47% of all households in the US have at least one dog, and 37% have one or more cats. We all love our animal friends but they are tough on floors. Pets with nails can scratch or mar softer flooring and pet hair and dander can collect in carpet or even become caked into seams in the flooring. It is possible, though to have a beautiful floor and enjoy the family pet. 

Here are a few options:

Vinyl Flooring

This flooring option is very popular with pets and their families. Vinyl comes in sheets which means that there are very few seams. Vinyl floors are resistant to staining, moisture, scratches and dents. Modern vinyl flooring is a snap to clean and easy to maintain. 

Vinyl Tile Flooring

Vinyl Tile flooring is an ideal choice for many pet owners. Compared to other materials, it is an affordable, durable and stylish option that can be installed anywhere in the home.

Laminate Flooring

This is a great choice for homes with pets. Most quality laminates have a protective layer or coating that will protect the floor from scratches and scuffs. Laminate flooring is easy to maintain, requiring only a dust mop or a quick pass of the vacuum. 

“Wood-Look” Flooring

This is a type of vinyl flooring that has the look of hardwood. Some of it is so well done and obsessively engineered you would never guess it wasn’t high-quality wood. Unlike its natural counterpart, wood-look flooring can withstand the drips and puddles our furry companions are prone to creating. It is extremely durable too, and you do not have to worry about scratches from your pet's nails that can wreak havoc on traditional wood flooring. 

Bamboo Flooring 

Out of all hardwood flooring options, bamboo is by far the most pet-friendly. It is naturally hard, making it a more stain- and scratch-resistant option over than typical hardwood floors. It is a great choice for those who appreciate sustainability and durability.
