We love our pets. According to the National Pet Owners Survey, 70% of U.S. households have a pet. Is your floor tough enough to handle living with a dog? Are you confident that housetraining a cat or dog won’t ruin your floor? Carpet manufacturers are constantly improving their products to handle the mess our 4-legged friends leave behind. Here are 5 reasons you can enjoy carpet with your pets because of solutions from our premiere carpet brands, Anderson Tuftex, Shaw, Dreamweaver, and Tarkett Home.
High Performance Carpet Fibers
There are primarily 2 types of fibers in common usage in carpet today, polyester, and nylon. Pet friendly carpets made with both polyester, and nylon have been improved with stain protection. (This feature can also be found in the less commonly used wool fiber carpets.) Anderson Tuftex and Shaw Floors make Pet Perfect+ carpet with built in stain and soil protection. Additionally, the process of dying the fibers makes them fade and bleach resistant. The nylon fibers are tougher than the polyester while the polyester gives a softer, more comfortable feel. Have you ever noticed that some carpet won’t let go of pet hair when you vacuum? Pet Perfect+ carpet is engineered to keep pet fur and hair on the surface where it can be easily removed with normal vacuuming.
Accidents and Spills are Contained
Today’s pet friendly carpets are made to hold spills on top where they can easily be wiped up. But what if you don’t notice till later, have you ever wondered what happens if the pet accident or spill penetrates the fibers to the matting underneath? In the Pet Perfect+ products there is a hold out layer that won’t allow the moisture to get into the cushion nor beyond to the subfloor.
Easy to Clean Carpet
Dreamweaver Carpet has a wide selection of carpets with lifetime pet stains warranties. DW Select line of carpets are made with the company’s proprietary PureColor solution-dyed fiber. Mike Sanderson, Vice President of DW Marketing says, “This provides inherent stain and fade protection for the life of the carpet. It is also unbelievably easy to clean. We recommend cleaning with a mixture of bleach and water.” Have you ever worried that there could be bacteria hiding in the carpet? Wouldn’t cleaning with bleach eliminate that concern?
Durable Carpet Construction
Tarkett Home has released new style to its Lifetime Series, Presidio and Somerset. Both utilize cut and loop patterned construction with a luxurious look and feel. But since the fibers are not cut in the process they are not opened up to staining like traditional cut loop carpets. Tarkett combines this technique with their solution dyed Primus PET fiber that is extruded with the color embedded, which makes the carpet resistant to fading. This line of Tarkett comes with a limited lifetime warranty covering stain, pet urine and soiling along with a 20-year abrasive wear and texture retention warranty.
