What type of pet-friendly carpet options do I have?
Many top manufacturers produce tough, highly stain-resistant carpet brands for pet owners. While the floor coverings are designed with pets in mind, they are ideal for busy households. Durable carpets are often made with time-honored nylon or newer triexta, which rivals nylon in performance and attractiveness. Vogel's Carpets & Flooring in Seattle, Washington, carries a wide variety of pet-friendly carpet flooring that is functional as well as fashionable.
Mohawk SmartStrand Forever Clean carpeting comes with an All Pet Protection & Warranty that covers 'all pets, all accidents, all the time.' The fiber has permanent stain protection that never wears or washes off. In addition, it's certified to be free of harmful substances, and it provides 0% moisture absorption. What's more, this soft fiber is made in part from renewable, plant-based ingredients.
The Bellera carpet collection by Shaw Floors features patented R2X Soil & Stain Resistance. R2X technology keeps spills at the surface longer, so clean-up is quick and easy. The carpeting in the collection features LifeGuard spill-proof backing, which protects the subfloor. In addition, all Shaw carpet flooring is Green Label Plus, meaning it emits the lowest VOC level on the market.
Nylon and triexta carpeting will indeed serve you best if you have pets. But olefin, also called polypropylene, is another good option. While not as durable and resilient, the fiber resists stains, abrasion, and pilling, repelling moisture. In general, this roughly textured carpeting has a low, densely packed pile. As a result, it's a favorite for basements and high-traffic areas.
In addition to Mohawk and Shaw, Vogel's Carpets & Flooring offers Masland, Fabrica, and Dixie carpeting. Each of these companies makes carpeting that can stand up to energetic pets. We provide a sample check-out service to help you begin your carpet upgrade. When installers are finished, you'll enjoy a 2-year installation warranty. Vogel's Carpets & Flooring services the entire greater Seattle area, with a showroom on Aurora Avenue in North Seattle.
