Is hardwood flooring pet friendly?

Is hardwood flooring pet friendly?


We love our fur babies, but let's face it: They are rough on floors, scratching, digging, tracking in dirt and mud, etc.

So it only makes sense to ask, "Can I have wood flooring? The simple answer is yes.

Consider the engineered version of hardwood


Engineered hardwood always comes factory-finished. An ultra-tough coating that can only be used in controlled settings is used on prefinished wood floors. That handles the dents and scratches.

Engineered hardwood has all the beauty of solid but with a different construction. As a result, it's stable and better able to handle water, i.e., tracking in mud and toppling water dishes.

Can I have solid wood?


Of course, but you'll need to take a few simple precautions. For example, wipe spills immediately and keep pet nails trimmed.

Consider extra hardwood. Some solid hardwood flooring species are white oak, hickory, maple, etc. You'll find them all in our showroom.

It’s also easy to keep clean


If yours is an outdoor pet, they will bring in leaves and dirt. All these floors need is a dry mopping, preferably daily, so the sand won't embed between the planks.

Sand and dirt are sharp and can scratch. Vacuum once a week to pick up whatever the dry mopping missed.

Clean and polish a few times a year. Adjust that schedule, depending on your lifestyle.
