Best Type of Flooring When You Have Dogs

Dogs are a wonderful addition to the family. They are there for us when they are up and when we are down. They give us a furry paw to hold when we need it. However, the benefits of having dogs isn’t the only thing that you get when you bring these cute creatures home. They come with a lot of work and they also make a lot of messes in the home. Additionally, they grow into some pretty big claws. This means that if you have flooring in your home (and we all do) it will get trashed in one way or another. The Texas Flooring Outlet wants to help you pick the best flooring for your home if you’ve got those fuzzy creatures in your home or are planning on getting one.

If you have carpet in your home, you know pretty quickly that it isn’t the best type of flooring with puppies. Those little terrors love to chew on things and they won’t think twice about it when it comes to your carpet. Not only that but they will think it’s the perfect place to relieve themselves. This can leave you with stains and smells that are difficult to remove. This leads to a very important question: What is the best flooring when you have a Dog?

Wood is an option but even that has its cons. There are a number of pros to having wood in your home. The biggest of them all is the easy clean up if they decide to go in the house. Whether it's number one or number two, it's nothing a couple of paper towels can’t handle. Not to mention that it is also very low maintenance when it comes to the daily care aspect. The only down fall to this is that the wood can be scratched. So, you have to weigh in the type of wood you want in your home. There are some people who love a worn and stressed look on their wood. There are others though that want a pristine look with their wood. All woods are different, some are softer than others and are more prone to being scratched. If you want to go a step up for a stronger “wood” flooring, then bamboo is always an option.

The most resilient type of flooring you can have in your home is tile. With porcelain and ceramic, you don’t have to worry about scratches. The other plus side to tile is the it is still relatively easy to clean up when they decide to go to the restroom in the house. The only down side is that you have to make sure that you really clean the grout because excrement can get embedded into the grout without you ever realizing it.
