We’re big pet fans here at Floors Etc. – BIG! So we know your pet isn’t just some animal, (s)he’s part of your family and like your family, (s)he should be comfortable in your home too. Since dogs and cats spend most of their time wandering the floors of your home, it’s important to keep their comfort in mind when choosing flooring. And we also believe that most any floor, with the proper care and maintenance, can be pet-friendly.
However, pets can also cause damage to certain types of floors, so it’s also very important to keep several things in mind in order to keep your floors looking great. When it comes to scratches, nails are certainly a concern and the damage may depend on the size, weight and nail length of your fur baby. Especially with cats, traction is very important, choosing a floor with good traction will allow your pet to move around your home freely and safely.
No matter what kind of floor you choose, if you have a furry baby, be sure to check our floor care tips for pet owners!
