Pet-Friendly Flooring

Do you love your furry friends as much as (or, gasp, more than) people? If so, this blog post is for you!

Recently, it was estimated that over 85 million US households own a pet, and pet ownership nationwide is on the rise. For those of us who love our pets, we typically consider our pets an important member of the household. At Second Street Floors in Williamsburg, VA, we understand that pets are invaluable furry family members, and we carry a wide variety of pet-friendly carpets and flooring options for your home. Second Street Floors offers innovative pet-friendly carpet and flooring solutions from trusted flooring manufacturers that allow you- and your pet- to enjoy life in your home without stress or worry.

Life with pets brings the inevitable accidents. Pet accidents include muddy paws, potty mishaps, water bowl splashes, and a host of other oops moments. Second Street Floors has you covered! Owning a pet doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the beauty and cleanliness of your home and floors. You can have it all with this great list of pet-friendly flooring choices we’ve compiled.

Scratch-Resistant Hardwood

Engineered hardwood features a core made of wood byproducts. This solid hardwood alternative is more dimensionally stable and inherently durable, making it a good choice for home with pets. Anderson Tuftex engineered hardwood floors feature Luster-Lock Ultra finish which is 6 times more resistant to scuffs and abrasions than other hardwoods.

Waterproof Flooring

Innovative and high-performing waterproof flooring is ideal for busy households with pets. Luxury vinyl tile and planks by COREtec Plus ensure that your floors remain gorgeous for the long haul despite dripping water bowls and dirty paws. With on-trend visuals, realistic textures, and micro-beveled edges, your family and friends won’t believe it’s vinyl. Check out Boardwalk Oak available in 5-inch planks.

Pet-Friendly Carpet

Just because you have pets, doesn’t mean that carpet is out of the question. Both Bellera carpet by Shaw Floors or SmartStrand carpet by Mohawk Flooring offer pet-friendly carpet choices for your home, both with limited lifetime warranties. Thanks to improved stain and soil protection technologies, pet accidents will often stay on top of the fibers until the pet owners can clean up the accident.
