How to choose the best flooring for your pet

 

image00

Pet owners will know that once you have a pet, you can’t live without one. Having said that, they do add to the wear and tear of household furnishings, in particular, flooring. If you’re moving into a new place, or considering new flooring, ask yourself a few questions before choosing.

Does your pet shed fur?

If your pet tends to shed a lot of fur, it’s a good idea to avoid choosing carpets, where fur can get lost and cause the floor to smell. Instead, choose floors that are easier to clean, such as laminate or tile flooring.

Is your animal loud?

Hard floors tend to carry a lot more sound, for example, if you have a dog that likes to run around. For this reason, carpet might be a good choice.

Does your animal have trimmed nails?

If your pet has long nails, there’s a good chance they will scratch a laminate floor. Instead, opt for tile flooring, which is less prone to scratches.

Is your pet house-trained?

Just bought a new puppy or kitten? Opt for an odor and stain controlled carpet, or flooring which is easy to clean, such as hardwood or laminate.

• Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt or grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.

• Occasionally wipe the floor with a damp mop or cloth. Periodically clean the floor with R2X Hard Surfaces Flooring Cleaner from Shaw’s line of floor covering care products.

While cleaning is easy, there are a few things to avoid:

• Don’t use oil based, wax, polish, or strong ammoniated or abrasive cleaners. […]
