Avoid carpets or use carpets selectively
The combination of pets and carpets is bound to give you a lot of headaches. Your furry loved one can scratch and tear up the fibres leaving your carpet an absolute wreck. There is also the risk of your pet doing its business on your carpet when it’s a puppy or incontinent senior.
Their fur will also shed, meaning lot’s more vacuuming.
To avoid all this use hardwood and tiled floors as they are much more ideal when it comes to pet-friendly house designs.
Have your heart set on carpet? No problem. The best solution, in this case, is to lay carpet in selective “pet Free” rooms or rooms your pet is unlikely to visit. Or choose a carpet that’s durable, easy clean and repels fur. For great carpet, options check this article out.
Rugs offer a great in-between option. They are easily added to a room, look great, offer a feeling of warmth, and most importantly can be replaced once damaged or worn out. Or you could buy your pet its own special rug. One that’s just for them.
