5 pet friendly flooring options that you can find here in Tucson, AZ

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is a popular choice and one of the best flooring options for pet owners because of its durability, scratch resistance, and easy maintenance. LVF is made of multiple layers, including a top wear layer that protects against scratches and stains. It is also waterproof, making it a great option for pets who have accidents. LVF comes in a variety of styles, including wood-look and tile-look options, giving homeowners the flexibility to choose the look that best suits their home.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is another durable and easy-to-clean pet friendly flooring. It is made of compressed fiberboard with a top layer that resembles wood or stone. Laminate flooring is resistant to scratches, stains, and moisture, making it a great option for pets. However, it is important to choose a high-quality laminate flooring with a thick wear layer to ensure its durability over time.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring is a good option for pet owners who want the look of hardwood without the high maintenance. It is made of multiple layers, with a top layer of hardwood veneer that gives the appearance of hardwood. Engineered hardwood flooring is more durable than solid hardwood, making it less prone to scratches and dents. However, it is still important to clean up spills and accidents as soon as possible to avoid damage to the hardwood veneer.

Porcelain or Ceramic Tile Flooring

Porcelain or ceramic tile flooring is another great option. It is durable, scratch-resistant, and easy to clean, making it a great option for pets who have accidents or shed frequently. It also provides a cool surface for pets to lie on during hot weather. However, it is important to choose a slip-resistant option to prevent pets from slipping and sliding on the tile.

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is a sustainable and eco-friendly option for the environmentally-conscious home. It is made from the bark of the cork oak tree and is highly resistant to scratches, stains, and moisture. It is also a comfortable option for pets to walk and lie on, as it provides a cushioned surface. However, it is important to keep pets' nails trimmed to avoid scratches on the cork surface.
