Published: September 24th, 2013

Are you the proud owner of a pet? Then, you have some special considerations to make when choosing new flooring. It’s important to keep your four-legged friend in mind when browsing all of our options. If you have carpeting, you probably don’t want to give it up. It is a comfortable and cozy flooring choice. The good news is, you don’t have to choose between the two! There are some options for pet owners seeking carpeting. If you’re searching for carpets in the Twin Cities, look no further!

Pet-Resistant Carpeting

There are a few carpeting manufacturers that boast pet-resistant carpeting. These brands of carpeting have technology built into the fibers to make them harder to stain and easier to clean. Even if your pet has access to the carpeting, it will be harder for them to leave a stain.

This type of carpeting is a perfect solution not only for pets, but for also for any high traffic areas of your home. If you want to carpet your dining room, or a child’s play room, stain-resistant carpeting is the perfect option. You can still enjoy all the benefits of carpeting, without the constant worry of spills or stains.

Keep Pets Away

If it’s possible, find a way to keep your pets off your carpeting. If portions of your house are carpeted, and others are not, keep your pets off the carpet. Some other flooring options are easier to clean up by nature. Laminates and vinyl are usually easier to clean up, as they are moisture repellant. Even if carpeting you install is resistant to stains, it’s still easier to wipe something up. By choosing pet-resistant flooring for some areas of your home, you will be able to more fully enjoy the carpeted areas.
