Is carpet a pet-friendly choice?

If you're a pet owner, carpet is an excellent choice for your home. It's easy to balance style and practicality when high-quality brands are designed with pets in mind. In addition, these brands tend to be backed by a pet-friendly warranty. With this floor covering, your pet won't slip and slide, and you don't need to worry about claws or paws scratching the surface. What's more, your pet will find carpet flooring to be as comfy as you. Redwing Custom Cabinets and Flooring in Boyd, Wisconsin, offers a large selection of pet-proof carpets.


Carpet options were expanded for pet owners when triexta was introduced to the marketplace in 2009. This naturally stain-resistant fiber is perfect for pet owners since it is easy to clean. Mohawk's soft and durable SmartStrand carpeting, constructed with triexta, features a protection system that covers 'all pets, all accidents, all the time.' In addition, since a triexta carpet does not absorb water, it's ideal for basements and high-traffic areas.


Nylon is a durable carpet fiber that most homeowners have chosen for many decades. It's the most resilient fiber, meaning that it returns to its original form as soon as compression ends. In other words, this abrasion-resistant carpeting efficiently retains its 'just-installed' look for many years and is treated in the factory for stain resistance. Because of its makeup, pet owners can't go wrong by choosing carpeting made of nylon.
