Is luxury vinyl flooring pet-friendly

Yes, luxury vinyl answers all of the needs of pet parents and is also stylish enough for humans!

Requirements of a home with pets

Even the cutest dog or cat can be pretty rough on a floor. The cat may mistake it for a scratching post, and the dog might mistake it for the yard. Both love the play with water, so you have toppled water dishes, as well as food spills and shedding.

If yours is an animal that plays outside, it can also track in dirt and moisture. That means you need flooring with the durability, waterproof capabilities, and easy care.

How luxury vinyl answers this call

This 100% waterproof product is constructed with waterproof materials and can be submerged or spilled on with no damage. As for durability, it's multi-layered and five times thicker than the original product and, at the top, is a clear, strong, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and spills. On top of that is a clear urethane finish for extra protection and shine.

Care couldn’t be easier!  All it needs is a regular (daily, if possible--especially if yours is an animal who plays outside) and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner.

The style is for the pet owners:  It offers true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken with high-definition photography, so they have vibrancy and clarity. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.

As an added option, the material can be cut into "floor-boards" called luxury vinyl plank or LVP.  It’s also available in square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout called luxury vinyl tile or LVT.
