Will a pet be joining your home? These tips should help you prepare your home
Much like preparing for a baby, preparing your home for a pet can be a difficult and long process. Since animals walk and chew long before a newborn baby can even turn over, it’s important to make sure to “pet-proof” a home well before welcoming a four-legged friend into the family.
The first thing to “pet-proof” is the flooring. From muddy paws to “accidents,” your flooring will be the first thing affected by your new furry family member.
For pet owners, the flooring experts at Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home stores recommend their exclusive Relax, it’s…Lees collection, which is specially designed to protect against inevitable pet-related stains.
Lees is different from many other carpet brands in the market today. As an exclusive brand of Carpet One Floor & Home, Lees offers a variety of unique features such as:
- Ultra25® 4X protection that repels most liquids including juice, coffee and other spills, four times longer than other carpet with traditional stain protection.
- An exclusive 25 year “NO EXCLUSIONS” ULTRA 25 Stain Warranty®, which covers stains other carpet warranties don’t, including pet stains, grease, mustard , mustard, coffee, cola, and even bleach.
- A Patented ExtraLoc® backing which has double the density of standard carpet construction, offering unheard-of stability and dimensional strength when you need it most.
Hard surface flooring can also be a good choice for a pet-friendly home. Most types of laminate and vinyl are scratch-resistant and easy to clean. Plus, vinyl and laminate brands offer hardwood or ceramic tile looks, making it possible to maintain style and functionality simultaneously. Hard surfaces such as vinyl and laminate are easier to maintain and clean especially when dealing with liquid stains.
