Most pet owners are aware of how notoriously messy their animals can be and here in the UK, this couldn’t be more true. As a nation of furry friend aficionados (in 2017 a whopping 44% of British households owned a pet) we’ll do anything to ensure our dogs and cats are cosy, comfortable and content at home, but often give little thought to pet-friendly flooring options.
Pets can wreak havoc on the floors around them. The scrapes and scuffs caused by sharp claws, the stains produced from not making it to the toilet in time and the carpet fibres clogged with mud and dirt after a rainy day at the park are just some examples of how floors can easily be ruined by your beloved critters.
But you don’t have to spend hours scrubbing the kitchen floor or buffing out scratches when you have the right pet-friendly flooring. We’ve compiled a list of some of Carpetright’s best and most affordable flooring for pets (including laminate, vinyl and carpet) in a bid to help you make the right decision, both in terms of comfort for your animals and ease of cleaning. That way, your four-legged friends can continue to play and you can spend less time crying over spilt milk!
At some point, spillages and staining will inevitably occur. To help with that, we’ve compiled a few tips and tricks to help keep pet-friendly flooring clean and free from dirt, muck and grime.
