Luxury vinyl flooring: benefits for pet-friendly homes

We love our pets, but they're pretty tough on floors. Luxury vinyl is considered one of the most pet-friendly floorings around. It answers every need you have when selecting flooring in a home with pets. 


What you need


1. Ultra durability. You'll need something that's dent-scratch-stain resistant and waterproof.  
This multi-layered product is strong enough to withstand any wear and is made of 100% 
waterproof materials that are five times thicker than the original vinyl. There's also a robust 
top transparent wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs and keeps stains at 
the top, waiting to be wiped off. 
 
2. Easy maintenance. Animals drool, topple water and food bowls, run, and shed.  With LVF, 
you need regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep it looking its best. 
 
3. Non-slippery surfaces with good traction. The last thing you need is high vet bills, especially 
when the problem could have been avoided. In addition, vinyl has a good grip so, if your pet 
is active, it can slow down when necessary and not slam into walls, which can cause injury. 
 
4. Warm and resilient. If your pet could talk, they would ask for flooring that's comfortable on 
which to lie, especially if the animal is senior or arthritic. 


Not to mention appealing to the humans 


Sometimes just referred to as LVF, this product has wood, stone, and ceramic images, all taken with high-definition photography. The photos are clear, vibrant, accurate, and bright. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks. 
 
To add to the realism, this vinyl is cut into long planks, called luxury vinyl plank or LVP or square, tile-sized, groutable pieces, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT.   
 
These are so realistic sometimes even flooring experts have trouble telling them apart from genuine materials, but your wallet will certainly know when you’re paying.
