Pet-Friendly Carpets

Posted on November 18, 2014 at 11:09 am

One of the biggest impediments to owning and installing a carpet for many home owners, is how managing their upkeep is made infinitely more difficult when you have pets to be concerned about. This is doubly bad though, as carpets are the ideal flooring for your pets, as it reduces the risk of slipping and sliding which animals are more prone to do on hard flooring and tiles.

So this could leave you wondering how you’re supposed to find a solution to this. Luckily, there is clear evidence regarding this issue, both on how to keep your carpet in good condition with the complication of pet ownership, but also which type of carpet you should acquire in the first place.

Carpets can be made from a variety of materials, but while a wool carpet is generally considered to be the superior flooring, it is more prone to staining and damage than a synthetic fabric such as nylon, which can be cleaned easily and will be guaranteed to last a lot longer under the stress of animals running backwards and forwards on the floor.

Treating them the same as you would treat a lino floor is definitely something you shouldn’t do, but there are certainly more similarities with that type of flooring and wooden ones than you’ll find with wood and carpet floors.

With wood, the primary means of cleaning will be water, but this can also cause damage do the surface of the floor (particularly if you’re using a cleaning detergent), therefore it is essential that you use a minimal amount of water. You should avoid using any cleaning detergent, but if you really need to, make sure that you use a brand which is neutral PH (not too acidic or alkaline), and heavily dilute that in water.

Rugs were the in thing a decade or so ago, but they can actually be a unique addition today. Not many properties will have a rug over the top of their carpet, and that’s because carpets today are more stylish and there are more options.

Back in the day a rug would be used to merely cover up a stain, or add a bit of cosiness to wooden flooring, but having it as the centrepiece in your living room underneath a coffee table can be a nice touch.

If you have a large living room you may just want to have a rug that stands on its own, perhaps being situated by a stove or a fireplace, and there are plenty of modern and traditional designs to choose between. If you want to add some character to your property, then a rug may just do the trick, and it can really liven up your living room compared to just having a plain carpet.
