Carpet And Your Pets
If you are a pet owner and want to keep your home clean, you have probably wondered if it is even possible if you have carpet as your floor covering. The truth is you can but you will need to find the right carpet in order to keep your area clean and free from your pet’s hair.
The first thing that you need to know when buying a carpet that is suitable for having pets around is their ability to be stain resistant. This is something that you have to consider because an ordinary carpet won’t last long when you have pets who will scratch on it and even cause stain from something that will come out of their butt (if you know what I mean).
Durability is another thing to keep in mind because you would want to get your money’s worth out of it and not buy another one just because it can no longer be useful from the damages caused by your pets. In Australia, statistics show that 40 percent of households have their furry friends living with them.
If you are a part of this statistic, then here are some of the best carpet types that will satisfy your need as a pet owner.
1. Nylon: This is perfect for pet owners because it is known to be durable. It is popular for its cost being more affordable than other carpet types but the quality won’t be jeopardized. Its fiber is man-made, which is why it is guaranteed to last longer than any other ordinary carpets. It is also known for keeping its colour even when it has been through a lot of cleaning sessions and exposure to the sun.
2. Wool: It has a warm feel for your pets, which is ideal to keep during the cold season. If you are willing to spend more for your carpet, then this is something that you should consider. It is pricier than the nylon since wool fibers are known to be more expensive. It is stain resistant if you buy the real ones.
Keep in mind that there are synthetic wool carpets, which are not stain-resistant and are likely to wear and tear easier than the real ones. This is actually something that you should be careful in buying so you won’t end up wasting your money.
3. Polypropylene: If you are on a budget but would still want a carpet that can work with your pets, this type will do you a lot of favours. It is known for being the most affordable carpet type that can cater pet owners, as it is water resistant and can even last for a long time despite the presence of your pets.
These are your best bets if you are looking for the right carpet in your place with your furry animals living with you. It is up to you if you want to buy the cheap one that although it can last longer, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee a long time than the nylon or the wool carpet.
