4 ideal pet-friendly flooring options for your home in Calgary

Do you have a furry friend at home? You probably want to put new flooring in your house but are wondering if it’s even worth it since you have a pet. Flooring stores in Calgary will provide plenty of options ideal for your whole family, including your dog, cat, or ferret. Here are four to consider installing in your home.

1. Bamboo

Bamboo flooring is a great option for your pet-friendly home because it is extremely durable. Choosing a strand-woven bamboo floor means you are getting a surface that is twice as hard as oak. You will not have to be constantly worried about your pets scratching the surface with this immensely strong floor.

Additionally, bamboo floors are warmer under your feet than some other flooring types. This can feel nice for both you, your significant other, your kids, and your pet, especially on cold winter days in Calgary.

2. Vinyl plank

Not only does vinyl plank flooring give you the luxurious look of hardwood, it also comes in waterproof styles. You will be extremely thankful for the waterproof membrane within this plank flooring when your dog accidentally (or on purpose) tips over his water bowl with his big paws. The floor is less likely to sustain damage when you have this extra layer of protection.

Vinyl plank is also a low-maintenance floor choice. It is easy to clean up with a simple mop or rag if someone spills something on it or when it gets a little dusty. You will also be able to easily wipe away all that pet fur laying around to keep your space clean and comfortable.

3. Tile

Tile floors are timeless so will keep your space looking modern no matter what year it is. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are very difficult to damage or stain, making them perfect for all that running around your pet does with sharp toenails. Stain-resistant or additional sealing of the grout is beneficial when you are having tile installed in a home with a pet. Adding this extra little bit of protection will keep your floors looking amazing.

4. Carpet

Yes, carpet might not seem like the ideal choice for your flooring when you have a pet, but it can be a great option if you know which carpet to select from your Calgary flooring store. L-pile nylon carpet is terrific for your home since it is comfy for you and your pet. Feel the plush material under your feet as you walk, and your pet will enjoy lying down on a heavenly soft spot. Low-pile carpet resists fur getting intertwined in the fibres and will be less likely to cause an issue with your pets’ nails getting stuck in between the piles which can be painful.

Nylon is made to resist stains more so than many other carpet materials. The stain resistance means you will not have to be on constant alert of your pet knocking something over and damaging your carpet. You can easily clean nylon carpets when you notice a dirty spot or two.

Head to one of the flooring stores in Calgary to check out the pet-friendly carpet options. If you can’t decide on a style or colour, ask for a few samples to see how they look in your home.
