Pet Friendly Flooring
Pets make our families complete, but life with cats and dogs isn’t without its unique set of challenges. Occasional accidents, shedding hair, and sharp little claws can all wreak havoc on your floors. Fortunately for fans of the four-legged, there are now more pet-friendly flooring options than ever before.
At Johnson Carpet One Floor & Home in Duluth, MN, we understand that life can be stressful, but cleaning up after your pets need not be a hassle, nor should it ever compromise your style vision. Whether you’re seeking to upgrade your floor for your new family addition, or replace a floor that’s been destroyed by your favorite four-legged friend, we have you and your home fully covered.
Finding a floor that’s fully waterproof is a wonderful option if you have a new puppy in the house. There are many types of waterproof flooring to consider, including luxury vinyl, tile, and even certain types of carpeting. Most of these options basically function in the same fashion: moisture is trapped at the floor’s surface, where it can be wiped away without any lingering damages, odors, or stains.
Traditional tile, luxury vinyl plank, and luxury vinyl tile are all great options when you have animals under your roof. Although it’s important to bear in mind that not all of these choices are fully waterproof, all of them will resist everyday moisture. Luxury vinyl flooring is easy to install and resists daily scratches that are to be expected from roving paws and claws. We carry a wide variety of luxury vinyl flooring brands, including products made by Armstrong, Congoleum, and Mannington.
Carpeting was once off the table for pet owners, but today there are plenty of carpet options aimed at tackling odors, stains, and pet hair. Pet owners are encouraged to do their part to regularly vacuum up stray fur, while scheduling professional deep cleanings according to manufacturers’ recommendations. We carry many of the industry’s favorite pet-friendly carpet brands, including Karastan.
