We love our furry friends here in Melbourne. According to Animal Medicines Australia, nearly 40% of Australian households have dogs. Only 30% of Australian homes have cats. Finding the right flooring is a major consideration for pet owners, as pets play a significant role in our daily lives.
If you do it correctly, your four-legged friends will be able to co-exist peacefully. You could spend hours trying to restore your beautiful carpets if you make a mistake.
We are here to help you find the right carpet for your pet. These are the pros and cons of carpet flooring for pet owners. We also have some tips on how to keep your carpet looking great.
WHAT PET-OWNERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FLOORING
Flooring should be resistant to damage from claws of pets.
Comfort is an important factor in flooring selections. This goes for both you and your pet. Stone tiling is not a good option. It is resistant to scratches, but it is harder and more difficult for pets to walk on and lie on.
Dogs with nails can also have problems with traction. Hardwood flooring is a good choice for dogs who are hyperactive. They may end up sliding down the corridor if they try to get past you.
Carpet flooring can bring warmth and comfort to your home. It also offers a variety of styles and colours that will add a personal touch to your space. There are many options when it comes to choosing the right carpet for your cat or dog.
Avoid loops in carpet, as they can catch on pets’ claws. While wool is durable and resistant to staining, nylon is more affordable and has a high level of durability. Pet-owners also have the option of carpet tiles, which can be easily replaced.
Carpet is best used in bedrooms, as this is where pets are least likely to be disturbed.
- Carpet for pets has the number one advantage of providing comfort underfoot. Carpet provides a comfortable place for pets to lay down and a landing pad for cats who want to jump off of countertops or couches. Carpet is less likely to get scratches from pets’ nails.
- Sometimes, it can be difficult to clean up accidents and some stains are more difficult to remove. Although many of our residential carpets have a water-resistant treatment you will need to quickly remove any vomit, urine, or faeces stains.
- Carpet can be more easily damaged by pets, particularly if they are active.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOUR CARPET FOR YOUR PETS
When it comes to choosing a carpet color, there are two options. To minimize the appearance of pet hair between vacuuming, choose a color that is closest to your pet’s natural hair.
You can also choose a darker or mid-toned shade to hide the wear and tear effects and reduce the appearance of any residual stain marks.
CARPET MAINTENANCE AND CARE FOR PETS
Doormats can catch dirt and debris that pets may bring in by placing them at the entrances. Keep your dogs’ nails trimmed to minimize the damage to the carpet. Also, make sure to address any accidents promptly to stop the material from spreading to the pile.
