What are the best floors for pets?

Pet Friendly Flooring - SmartStrand Forever Clean Carpet

The Carpet Guys want to help you understand the pros and cons of each type of flooring so you can decide which is the best flooring for your pets. We rated each one on several factors.

  • If it’s waterproof or will damage from accidents or messes (water bowls, wet paws, vomit, etc.).
  • Is it easy to clean up hair or pet dander?
  • How it handles nails with snagging or scratching
  • If the flooring is loud when pets are playing or running
  • Can your pets lay on the flooring and be comfortable?
  • Whether it is affordable for the average household

All these types of flooring have several color and style options available. They are in order of what The Carpet Guys recommend most for households with animals. Make sure to ask your Design Consultant which one will suit your home best. Don’t think you can afford the top-notch Waterproof Laminate?
