When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home, there are many factors to consider, but few are more important than how it will interact with your pets. Whether making mischief or innocent accidents, your pets can take a serious toll on your floors. So before you decide on checking out that hardwood, here are a few reasons to consider pet-friendly laminate flooring instead.
Strong without breaking the bank
The top reason to go with laminate of course is its affordability. Laminate flooring is strong and naturally resistant to wear and tear and highly durable, all while being very reasonably priced.
I is it wood?
Made you look! Laminate flooring also gives you that classic look of hardwood, but gives your pets the freedom to run around and be themselves while you get some peace of mind. Laminate has a tough protective finish layer, which means less worrying about scratches, dents and potty training mishaps. You can even treat your laminate flooring for extra water resistance to keep moisture out and protect your floors from those occasional accidents and spills. In the event something does go wrong, laminate flooring is much easier to install or repair than real wood and other flooring materials.
Take your time
Consider your options carefully. When picking laminate material, keep in mind that laminate flooring can be slippery and this can spell some trouble for your pets, especially dogs. Stick with laminate flooring that comes with a textured or embossed finish. This will give your furry friends some added traction and protect them from injury.
If you’re updating your floors or looking to make renovations, keeping your pets in mind will pay off in the long run. Be sure to talk to your local flooring experts for tips on proper maintenance and ways you can make your laminate flooring best work for you and your pets.
