There are a lot of choices when it comes to flooring in the house, but carpets are the best when you have pets. In fact, carpets are the best flooring in areas that are not likely to be really wet or those where the carpet may catch fire. In all other areas, the carpet is the best flooring you’ll ever have. It’s very comfortable to the feet and it reduces chances of injury, as long as you don’t drop little, sharp objects in them.
If you have pets, carpets are also the way to go. Not only does it reduce chances of injury for them, it also keeps other objects safe from being accidentally damaged. Just imagine your furry loved one running around. The chances of slipping on their own fur and accidentally knocking a cabinet down are absolutely higher when they slipped on smooth tiles than on a carpet. Not only will your cabinet and stuff be wrecked, your pet will also get injured. Not only that, if humans enjoy the carpet on their feet, how much more will your pet enjoy it and lie around on it? There’s simply no question that carpets are the better flooring when you have pets.
Of course, we should consider that pets are generally very lively and might considerably lessen the carpet’s durability. Here are some pointers that will help your pet and carpet coexist peacefully.
Know more about your pet
So, what kind of pet do you have? Is it a cat who likes to laze around for two-thirds of the day? Maybe you have a similar kind of dog? Or maybe you have the kind of dog that’s really outgoing and comes home full of dirt and soil? Perhaps a really curious, cute and active kitten? You should get to know your pet so that you can prepare what kind of carpet you’ll buy, or how you’ll go on in order to maintain your carpet.
Carpet price and quality
Next up, you should also consider the quality and price of the carpet you’re buying or what you already have. If you haven’t bought a carpet and are considering buying one, then choose either a carpet that’s cheaper but at least decent in quality or a carpet that’s really high-quality even if it’s more expensive. The reasons for those choices are in terms of carpet maintenance. It’s assured that your carpet durability will lessen even if you have a cat that only lazes around. If that’s the case, then you might want a carpet that’s cheaper and easier to replace or something that’s really sturdy and easy to maintain even if it’s more expensive.
Carpets, whether you have pets or not, should always be maintained. It’s even more true when you have pets. Pet fur will undoubtedly stick on the carpet, along with the microbes, dust and soil that stick to the fur. This will cause safety hazards to you and your family. It will also lessen the durability of the carpet even further. It would do you well if you get your carpet treated to be water-resistant to lessen its need to be maintained. Even then, it’s best to regularly get your carpet cleaned. You can ask professional carpet cleaners like the ones from Carpet Cleaning Cairns to do the job for you to ensure a thorough job.
