Being the proud owner of an American Foxhound who is quite the rascal and incredibly energetic throughout our home, you can be assured that I am very familiar with scratch-resistant and easy to clean floors so I’m going to share invaluable tips and options so that it may help you with your decision when you are ready to install brand new flooring with Foxhound Floors Atlanta. Did you know that more than 60% of American households own a house hold pet and as wonderful of an addition as pets are to our families, they sure are tough on floors so this pet friendly overview of some of the most efficient and favorite flooring choices and how they will hold up for our dogs, cats and anything in between should prove quite useful to all our clients so let’s get started. 

Scratches on our floors are really not something that we want to think about but it comes with the territory when owning pets so the number one piece of advice I can offer you is to make sure to keep the nails trimmed for your lovely pet because even if they are not prone to scratching your floors, you can be assured that they will leave their “Paw Signatures” merely by walking, running and just plain being joyful (the reason they are part of your family) and the occasional boo-boo (aka #1 & #2 mishaps) even though you truly thought your pet was housebroken (always a shock when this happens) but accidents do occur and no need to fret because all you need to do is find the right type of flooring which will make your home beautiful and pet-friendly not to mention a joy to live in.

Let’s talk about Luxury Vinyl flooring as this is truly a popular option when it comes to families who own pets. Why? Good question and the reason is because Luxury Vinyl tiles and Vinyl sheet are incredibly durable, last a long time, are resistant to moisture, scratches and dents which is what you are looking for you and your family. Also, one of the great selling points for Luxury tile is the ease in cleaning them to include how simple it is to install them and of course quite affordable on your budget. Furthermore, another feature that my clients really love is that it softens the sounds your pet’s nails make when they are on their journey around your home doing their thing whatever that may be which I humbly consider to be one of the great mysteries of the world.

Also, Luxury tile can come in many luxurious looks such as wood, stone, slate to include ceramic that can come with a textured surface that not only looks like the real thing but it provides something so important that you will find enticing and that’s because it is slip resistance to padded paws for our lovely pets and all around best friends. How cool is that folks? You can’t go wrong with Luxury Vinyl flooring but more options to go so let’s continue on our journey in order to make that wonderful decision to purchase the flooring that you have always wanted and of course call Foxhound Floors Atlanta to do the expert installation and enhance the beauty of your home.

We also offer installations for Vinyl Sheet Flooring which we consider to be another awesome option for homes that have pets. Why? Glad you asked that question and the answer is that it is so resilient and comes in a roll not to mention that there are so few seam and no grout whatsoever. What our clients love about this is that it is so realistic looking and you get very important features such as superior durability which means that they are scratch, scuff and also stain resistant which results in keeping your Vinyl Sheet Flooring installations looking newer for a longer period of time. There is also the soft comfort feature which gives you a warm, soft and can even feel cushiony under your feet. Once again, the maintenance aspect is the major question that I always get and my answer is that since there is no grout to clean and a protective finish has been added, it will repel dirt and the spills that take place so keeping your Vinyl Sheet Flooring will be a breeze and save you time so you can spend this time-saving feature where it counts, enjoying time with your family and pets.

Another popular option is Vinyl Tile Flooring which also makes it easy to wipe away the occasional and innocent little mishaps left by our beloved pets or the inevitable water spills that do happen from time to time. No need to worry though because you don’t have to sacrifice style just because you need an easy to care for flooring solution which believe or not is a major concern for most of clients and when we inform them of the details, they are quite relieved. Vinyl flooring also give you a variety of options to choose from such as patterns, colors and styles which bear a very close resemblance to natural products such as stone and ceramic tile which makes it a great choice for your home.

There is so much more to write about when it comes to more flooring options such as engineered tile and laminate which I will elaborate further in upcoming articles so as to share the popular options and requests from my clients throughout Metro Atlanta.
