The Pet Detective - What Carpet is Best For My Fur Baby?

pet friendly carpets

We all love our furry friends but taking care of both them and your home can be challenging sometimes. So, we’ve used our pet detective skills to help you figure out which carpet is best for your pet! 

There are many things that can happen to your carpet when you have a pet, whether that be stains, scratch marks or fur. Your pet always seems to be making a mess that you have to clean up. However, we are here to help make your life easier by answering all your questions around pets and carpet.

What things you should keep in mind when looking for pet friendly carpet:

  1. Durability: When you have a pet, your carpet can succumb to a lot of wear and tear, therefore it is important to look for carpets that can withstand some dirt and clawing here and there, without looking worn out. 

  1. Stain resistance: Everyone has accidents, especially your pets who sometimes just can’t hold it in! Stains can happen all the time in a pet loving household, whether its soiling accidents or dirt tracked in from outside. Carpets that are designed for pets have a level of stain resistance, which is what you should be looking for when carpet hunting as this will keep your carpet looking nicer for longer. 

  1. Comfort: Not only should you be comfortable in your home but so should your pet. When looking for carpet, keeping your pet’s comfort in mind is key as they are the ones who spend the most time on the floor. Something to take into consideration is that some pets love scratching, so it is preferable to find carpet that claws won’t get caught in. 

What types of carpet are best for pets? 

There are many carpet materials that can be best suited for your home, here are a few we recommend for our pet owners:

  • Nylon: Out of all carpet materials, Nylon is the most durable, making it perfect for pets. It is also easy to clean if any accidents were to happen. 
  • Wool: Wool will provide your pet with ultimate comfort, while also resisting any stains that might occur. 
  • Triexta: While similar to Nylon, Triexta is hydrophobic helping to repel any moisture or stains on the carpet, making it easier to clean up messes. 

While a dark colour carpet may seem like the easiest option for hiding all the pet messes, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. So, make sure you are regularly cleaning your carpet to help keep both you and your furry friend happy and healthy.
