Benefits Of Pet-Friendly FlooringThe benefits of having pet proof flooring is that you don’t have to worry about your furry friend(s) having an accident that causes the flooring to fail. For instance with the Luxury Vinyl Tile, it won’t get in-between the seams and cause warping or buckling like a traditional hardwood or laminate might. With the carpet, it won’t stain or soak thru the bottom backer of the carpet, therefore no smells! The main thing is that it’s easy to clean and easy to care for in busy family households. The LVT is also very scratch resistant to claws and paws!
Types of Flooring You Should AvoidYou should avoid wood-based products or carpeting that do not have the special H2O backing. If the flooring isn’t specifically designed with pets in mind, the “accidents” can soak thru the top layers which will cause smells and stains in carpet or warping or peeling in wood-based floors.
