Pet-friendly flooring: it’s worth the investment

Niki Jacques, President of Nufloors Coquitlam and avowed pet lover, knows how difficult it can be to keep your home looking clean when you’re sharing it with a dog or a cat.

The solution? According to Jacques, looking for pet-friendly flooring in Coquitlam is the first step.

“Pet-friendly carpeting can help to prevent spills, keep strains from seeping in, and can help make clean-up easy,” says Jacques, whose award-winning business has served the Tri-Cities area since 1986. “Not only will it make your life easier, it will help preserve your flooring for years to come.”

Here are 4 benefits of pet-friendly flooring to keep in mind:

1.     Liquid-repelling properties: “Liquid-repelling properties work to surround each fiber to help protect the entire carpet—from the tips of the fiber to the carpet backing—and keep stains from seeping in,” says Jacques. “It helps stop urine and vomit from seeping into the fiber and becoming permanent.”

2.     Easier cleaning: “The more repellant a carpet is, the easier it is to clean,” says Jacques. “Spills are less likely to penetrate to the base of the yarn and will typically wick back to the top, making them up much easier to remove. The fiber has hair repelling technology on it so the hair is easier to vacuum off.”

3.     Protecting your padding and subfloors: “An added benefit of stain-resistant carpeting—and one many pet-owners are not aware of—is a special carpet cushion or Scrim Layer that has a moisture barrier to help keep liquids such as pet urine from penetrating the padding and subfloors,” says Jacques.

4.     Reducing odors: Keeping their home smelling fresh is always a challenge for pet-owners. Odor-reducing carpet treatments can really help. “Odor-reducers continually work to eliminate common pet smells that might come from your carpeting,” says Jacques.
