In Singapore, it appears that 40% of households have pets. It is thus always best to find a pet-friendly flooring option that is suitable for our little companions. Pets can cause several problems in our homes. These problems might come as a result of their untrimmed nails, which result in the scratching of the floors. Pets that are not properly toilet trained might end up creating a mess around the house and staining the flooring of the house.
Here are a few pet friendly flooring options you can choose from:
Vinyl flooring is largely pet friendly due to its durability and high water-resistant qualities. In fact, it is one of the most recommended pet friendly flooring options for cats and dogs.
