Is carpet a pet-friendly choice?

We know you love your pets, just like we love ours. Be it dogs, cats, rabbits, or gerbils; they can quickly become part of the family. However, there comes a bit of a challenge when you decide to put carpeting into your house. Pets can be excitable, and accidents happen, not to mention shedding and dander. So the question is, can you put in carpet or are you stuck with hard floors?

Stain protection

One thing that would bring peace of mind is the stain resistance of modern carpeting. Many fibers are so resistant to liquids that you could pour bleach on them without affecting the color of the carpet. In addition, many synthetic fibers are designed not to absorb moisture, so if your pup has an accident, there will be no smell absorbed into the carpet.

Today’s advances in technology give you a whole new carpet to look at. We have name brands like Mohawk, Shaw, Masland, and Fabrica Dixie. These brands can offer many benefits for you and your pets.

Another benefit of the new carpets is the fiber in the carpet. Some fibers snag on pet's nails and cause a run the rug. Newer carpets have improved fibers that don’t do that.

Pet dander

One of Mohawk’s products is a carpet with pets in mind. It’s called “Air.O.” It has the padding and the fibers all in the same material. The fibers or the padding don't absorb moisture. Exceptional airflow allows allergens, hair, dander, and water to be released when you vacuum it up.
