Is carpet a pet-friendly choice?
If having a pet means that you shouldn’t get carpet, we at Norman's Floorcovering say it isn’t true. Just because you have pets doesn't mean that you can't find carpeting perfect for you. You can find a carpet that is suitable for you and your fur babies.
Today’s carpet is not yesterday’s carpet
Carpet used to have a reputation of being easy to stain and wearing out quickly. Not anymore. Today's advances in technology have a whole new carpet to look at. When you look at name brands like Mohawk, you will find soft surface broadloom that offers plenty of benefits for you and your pup.
Benefits of new carpeting
This new carpet can provide excellent stain resistance. Many brands are highly stain-resistant and pet-friendly. Some even offer you a guarantee protecting you from pet odors and stains for years to come. So your new carpet will not soak up pet stains or odors, thanks to the treatment the carpet received at manufacturing. No chemicals are added after manufacturing so that nothing will wash off or wear off.
Another benefit is the specific fibers in the carpet. Some fibers will not snag on a pet’s nails and wear out faster. So your carpet will not run or get chewed up by your pet’s walking across it.
One of the products of Mohawk is "SmartStrand," and it is a carpet with pets in mind. It has permanent stain resistance, long-lasting durability, and is spill and soil-protected. Another great feature is that it is made partly from renewable products.
