Carpet & Flooring: Your Complete Guide!


"We will replace the carpet, not the dogs. We love our furry friends".

Hello Friends and Neighbors,
Pet friendly carpet. I get asked this question a lot... What kind of carpet will hold up better if I have cats, dogs or other pets and animals?  If you are talking mostly bedrooms (lower foot traffic areas), then a good stain resistant carpet is a good option. If you are talking higher foot trafic areas such as a living, room, dining room, family room, hall or stairs then you want to consider a stain resistant carpet of better quality construction.

In a nutshell, a carpet made from continuous filament yarn will look newer much longer than carpet made from cheaper staple yarns. Get a carpet with high twist yarns or a good quality Berber.  Lower pile carpet (as opposed to thicker pile carpet) will also look newer longer. Depending on the dogs, (size, age, color of fur etc), I would go with a medium or darker color. I would stay away from light colors. 
PADDING: If you have a pet that is older or not housebroken, you want to prevent the possibility of pet urine from getting into the subfloor. If that happens, it will be a major inconvenience and expense to try to remove the smell later.  If you want to reduce the possibility of unwanted liquids from soaking into your subfloor, get a 8 lb 1/2" thick rebond pad with a moisture barrier.
