Hardwood Flooring and Pets

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Everyone loves their pets, but it’s safe to say that we’re not always happy with what pets can do to our homes. Pets shed, leaving hair to collect on the furniture and on the floor, and pets also can scratch the furniture and floor with their paws. So what’s a wood-floor-wanting pet-loving homeowner to do?

 

It’s unlikely you’ll be able to avoid scratches entirely, but there are a few things you can do to make them less likely. First, make sure your pets’ nails are always short and trimmed. Second, consider a harder wood for your floor. The harder the wood, the better it can take the abuse of your four-footed friends. If you have a room with hardwood floor that you absolutely don’t want to get scratched, you can put up a gate so the pets can’t get it, or if there’s a door, keep it closed. If at some point your floor does get scratched, check out our blog on how to remove scratches from wood floors. Keep those nails trimmed!
