Are your beloved pets slowly destroying your floors? Is your little Max or Rocky scratching and leaving stains to their heart’s content? If so, it might be time to consider some new dog-friendly flooring from Floor Coverings International Oahu. With a plethora of options to choose from, you’re sure to find something that will work for both you and your pup.
Vinyl flooring is one of the most durable types of flooring. It is both scratch and water-resistant and has the added benefit of being a softer alternative to stone. While stone is an option for households with dogs due to its tough, resilient surface, it can be rough on the tender pads of animal feet and often cold to boot. Vinyl’s softer feel is both more comfortable for animals and quieter for their owners. The click-click-click sound of animal claws will be greatly diminished by the smooth surface of vinyl flooring.
There’s even more to love about cork flooring than the fact that it is eco-friendly. It’s resistance to water and its antimicrobial and hypoallergenic properties make it an exceptionally great choice for a house with pets. Cork’s natural ability to keep insects and bugs away helps to create a healthier environment for you and your dog, while the animal hair and dander it repels makes it easy to clean. Additionally, cork floors reduce the opportunity for dogs to scratch up the surface, as cork is an anti-slipping material that helps provide traction for animals racing through the house.
Laminate flooring is a great choice for homes with pets due to its durability. There are also several styles of wood-like laminate available that allow pet owners to combine the beauty of hardwood with the resiliency of laminate. Despite its naturally slick surface, laminate is a great choice for dogs because it is scratch-resistant. Little Boxer can scrape all over the place and you won’t have to worry about him leaving behind marks.
