Why is your floor so important to dogs?

If your head was a foot away from the floor at all times you’d be pretty interested in it too!

As you know Dogs rely on scents to navigate, to rest and to play. As we understand the needs of our greatest companions more and more we realise that we can help them by providing them with a clean, safe environment.

Flooring is a huge part of that environment; While they love to find unsavoury elements hidden deep in our carpets we know that this is not healthy for them. Allergens that can become stored in soft furnishings such as rugs, carpets and curtains can cause them symptoms that include regular ear infections, sneezing, itching and skin inflammation.

Another element to consider is slippery floors such as polished ceramic, laminate and smooth tiles. This type of flooring has kept Animal physios busy for the last 15 years. Strains, concussion, sprains and ligament damage are common injuries for dogs slipping on floors.

Then there is the little accidents; Although our beloved woofers amaze us with what they will actually put into their mouth when out on walks, just like us they do not like the scent of ones and twos in their home. Carpeting and rugs can retain the nastiness in their fibres and linger to the chagrin of humans and dogs.

‘Hey; that’s a lot about our Dogs; What about us?’

Well said; What do we want? Personally I want a safe flooring for my dogs, but your damn sure I want it to be easy to maintain and I don’t want my dog to ruin it! Mrs FFP and
I have had wooden flooring in the past which we love the look of, however it became stained, scratched and scuffed very quickly thanks to our Dogs. As you know; not cheap to replace!
So hopefully something to bear in mind for dog owners when choosing your next floor covering.

Is vinyl click good for homes with pets?

Is Vinyl Click good for homes with Pets?

The introduction of vinyl click flooring has offered a convenient, cheap and easy to install flooring options for home owners. A good quality click flooring system can last years in a dry, cool environment. But is it good for pet owners?

While click flooring can resist some spills it is not 100% water tight like a glue down system, which means that those little Pet accidents that happen from time to time can seep underneath the flooring and start to rot the underside and leave an unsavoury smell.

High humidity and spills may cause the click system to warp over time creating trip hazards for you and your pets.

Floors For Paws glue down system is the ideal choice for homes with pets; once down your flooring will be waterproof as no liquid can get underneath to cause any problems. It is worth the extra effort to have your flooring permanently fixed as it will last years longer than a click alternative, saving you valuable money over a life time.
