Types of Dog Friendly Flooring
If you’re worried about your dogs ruining your floor, you’re most likely thinking about dirt and scratches. You need a floor that will resist scratches from their paws and is easy to clean. Here are some examples of flooring materials that are ideal for dog owners.
Vinyl is actually rated the number one dog friendly flooring. It is an extremely durable material that is complete resistant to any kind of scratches. It is also very easy to clean, especially if you have a vacuum cleaner that has a hardwood setting. Vinyl flooring also resists stains, which means you’ll be able to clean up dog urine and vomit without leaving a trace behind.
The second most recommended flooring for homeowners with dogs is linoleum. It has many of the same properties as vinyl, with a few benefits added in. Perhaps the biggest benefit of installing a linoleum floor is the fact that it is a natural flooring material that is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. This can prevent illness and airborne allergy for both you and your pets. The only downside to linoleum flooring is that it costs a bit more than vinyl.
While there are other dog friendly flooring materials, these two are the most highly recommended. If you have questions or would like more information about dog friendly flooring in Pantego and Arlington, TX, call our office at 817.861.3737.
