If you have pets at home, then you know how lovely they are to have around – and how much damage they can do to your floors! From dents to scratches, stains to hair everything, our dear fluffy companions can create a bit of a mess, even if they don't mean to. Luckily, there's waterproof flooring to fall back on, and what a lifesaver it is! If you're planning on redoing your home, then you may want to consider this wonderfully high-quality, pet-friendly alternative.

A few factors to consider…

Before you decide on what hard surfacing you’d like for your makeover project, here are a few factors to consider that take into account that you have fur babies.

  • Scratch Resistance – Pet claws can cause some real damage to surfaces, so choose a scratch-resistant material. 
  • Stain Resistance –Whether you’re house training a new puppy or have a senior cat in your family, it’s important to find a material that won’t stain easily.
  • Traction Control – Safety and comfort should be a priority when deciding on an ideal surfacing option. Opt for a material that offers traction to avoid slipping and injuries.
Top 3 advantages of waterproof flooring for pets

While there are numerous advantages to selecting waterproof flooring, here are the top three that relate to having pets.

Various designs, colors, and styles

Don’t be fooled into thinking you’ll be stuck with minimal options. On the contrary, you’ll no doubt be impressed by how many choices you’ll have in terms of modern designs, colors, and styles. You can even choose a style that matches your Yorkie’s flowing locks!


As it repels stains and spills, the surfacing is a super breeze to clean. Normally, all it takes is a quick wipe immediately after the incident occurs. Certainly, this comes in handy with your pet's accidents!

Moisture buildup prevention

Well, it is waterproof flooring, so it is no surprise that one of its key features is surfacing protection against water and humidity. This means you won’t be haunted by the consequences of moisture buildup, such as mildew and mold growth that can cause health issues. Clearly, this goes hand-in-hand with easy cleaning, since this surfacing won’t retain water spills or urine accidents.
