Pet Flooring: Frequently Asked Questions
What are the best wood floors for large dogs?
Different flooring lines excel in different areas. We would not consider Oak, Hickory, and Maple flooring to be pet friendly. Solid and Engineered bamboo and eucalyptus are very hard and resist scratching, denting, and gouging but offer no moisture protection. Lastly, our Vinyl flooring is extremely pet-friendly!
How does bamboo flooring holding up to dogs having accidents?
Pet accidents on eucalyptus or bamboo flooring should be cleaned up within a reasonable amount of time. When puddles are cleaned up within an hour, they usually will not cause problems.
What about flooring makes it pet friendly?
Pet-friendly flooring is often easy to wipe up because it has a hard, smooth surface. Additionally, pet flooring features a scratch-resistant topcoat as well as a high janka hardness rating which helps to prevent denting and claw marks.
Pet Flooring: Customer Story
Customer Story Transcript
I’m Jason, this is my wife Michelle and welcome to our home in Reno, Nevada. I posted that I was getting a floor on Facebook and I have a friend in California who also installs floors. He wanted to do a bid for me, and when I told him I was definitely wanting bamboo, he called around and came back to me and said you know Cali Bamboo is the bamboo distributor for the West coast so I can’t beat any of their pricing. Because we have all the animals in the house and the young kids, we needed something more than carpet and the linoleum. I wanted the hardwood floor because with the carpet, it was hard to keep clean with our animals, we do have three dogs, three cats, we’ve got two children and they’re both into sports so there’s a lot of traffic that comes through and it matted the carpet. The carpet matts really bad so this was easy to cleanup, and more durable especially with the animals. It’s very easy, just take the Swiffer®, get the Bona® cleaner out, clean it up and it’s good to go. If the pets have an accident it’s very easy to wipe up. We really do love the Cali Bamboo and we would definitely recommend anybody purchasing it and having Nate from Renew Bamboo install it for them.
