Pet Resistant Carpeting
Taking care of a pet can feel like a part-time job, especially when it comes to carpet messes. Instead of getting on your hands and knees for prolonged periods of time with buckets of expensive cleaning products, find yourself a pet-resistant carpet that both you and your furry friend will love! A&M Carpet & Flooring has everything you’re looking for in a pet-resistant carpet in the Claremont area.
Qualities of a Pet-Friendly Carpet
You may already know as a long-time pet owner, but there are certain qualities that a carpet must have in order for it to be considered pet-friendly. It takes a few years of caring for a dog or cat (or both) to realize that you’ll be dealing with dirty foot traffic, bodily mishaps, and other situations in which the right carpeting could have helped greatly. That being said, a quality pet-resistant carpet should:
- Not give in to frequent and heavy foot traffic
- Be easily cleaned of mud and dirt
- Have stain-resistant properties
- Endure snags and scratches
- Not hang onto fur and dander
Pet-Resistant Carpeting Materials
What kind of carpets have all of the wonderful properties mentioned above? A few materials that have been proven to act as a savior for many pet owners in Claremont include wool, nylon, and polyester. Each has its benefits and comes in different price ranges. Whichever one stands out to you is guaranteed to be found in our massive carpet selection at A&M Carpet & Flooring.
Wool carpet is the first choice for many pet owners because not only is it moisture-resistant and can stand up to regular foot traffic, but it is soft enough for pets to feel comfortable no matter where they choose to lay.
Nylon is also a very popular choice for its many benefits at a lower price. The material is incredibly durable, is able to repel moisture, and is resistant to stains and odors. And the fact that it lasts up to 20 or more years makes it a dream come true for any pet owner.
As the most affordable option, this synthetic yet soft material exhibits close to the same strength as nylon and is also stain-resistant.
Other Pet-Friendly Qualities
Aside from the material itself, there are certain carpet properties that are easier on pets:
- Pile height refers to the length of the carpet fibers. The higher the pile, the softer it is for animals to be comfortable.
- Looped fibers help remove the possibility of nails and claws getting snagged in the carpet.
- The face weight, or the weight of the carpet, can equate to the carpet’s overall endurance. A heavier face weight means a more durable carpet.
