Luxury vinyl in Connecticut from All Hardwood Floors

What type of flooring is best for dogs?

Choosing pet-friendly flooring can feel like a daunting task, especially considering every possible flooring option. However, it might be easier than you think, and we're going to give you things to think about in today's post, so read along with us here for more information.

Your pet-friendly flooring will make a difference

Several floor coverings make an excellent addition to your dog-friendly home, with luxury vinyl being one of the best. Not only is it highly stain, scratch, and scuff resistant, but it?s also completely impervious to water, which means wet pet paws, accidents, and spills will be no reason for you to lose your peace of mind.

Pre-finished engineered hardwoods are also a great choice; engineered wood floors are made with three to nine layers of different wood veneers - their durability makes them better able to withstand scratches from pet?s nails.

Carpet flooring is more of an option than you might think. Brands are now offering impressive, built-in stain and odor protection, specifically geared towards dogs and cats, for a cleaner, fresher, smelling home longer.

We know you still have many questions about the options available to you, and we'll be happy to answer them all. So be sure to contact us today to find out more about options that genuinely work in your pet-friendly home.

My overall recommendation for homes with dogs is luxury vinyl ? it?s durable, scratch and stain resistant. If you prefer real hardwood, consider engineered, pre-finished hardwood ? it?s a harder surface and holds up better.
