Best vinyl plank flooring for pets

Issue Time:2019-04-10
Now more and more people have pets in their homes, and it is becoming more and more normal for pets to live together with people, but pets love to bite and shed hair, which is really love and hate. Brand new floors and pets. What should we choose?

How to choose, we refer to several key factors!

The first point, everyone should think of wear resistance, naughty dogs will inevitably pull our floor, so wear resistance is the first challenge we will face, the floor must be able to withstand a certain thickness to resist. Cute pet's offense.

The second point is moisture resistance. Pets are already accustomed to urinating and defecating anywhere, so we choose moisture-proof floors. Joint lock floors can be seamlessly spliced, and the two floors are tightly joined together. Even if water is poured directly on it, it will not seep.
The third point is that the sound insulation effect is considered because it is natural for pets to wear around. The movement is definitely not small, so we must choose a floor with good sound insulation.
What is vinyl flooring?
Vinyl flooring is a synthetic flooring material that is durable, affordable, and easy to install. Vinyl is often confused with other types of flooring, such as linoleum and laminate flooring. Luxury vinyl tiles and wood planks are becoming more and more popular due to their versatility, ability to withstand wet environments and realistic wood and stone tile appearance.

Luxury vinyl planks or tiles -installed as a glued product with a waterproof top wear layer
Wood-plastic composite (WPC)-rigid core made of wood and plastic composite material, can be lined
Stone-plastic composite (SPC)-a rigid core of stone-plastic composite, may include additional padding
WPC and SPC vinyl flooring are very suitable for pets because they are waterproof and locked together to be installed as a "floating floor"-not permanently fixed to the subfloor excess so moisture will not penetrate the subfloor. In other words, when your furry friend has an accident, it will not damage the floor! Provide durable, abrasion-resistant and scratch-resistant, and low- and mid-priced options. If you want to do it yourself, many come with a DIY-friendly "click and lock" installation.
