Best flooring for cats and dogs

Best flooring for cats and dogs

We love our dogs, cats and other pet animals – they give us love, joy and companionship. However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows and your floor might agree.

Pets might have small "accidents" before they are house-trained. They shed (lots of) hair. And now and again they may decide to sharpen their claws on pieces of furniture. With Pergo at least the floor is one area you needn't worry about.

Vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring is the most pet-friendly flooring option. The strong, hard-wearing surface layer of Pergo vinyl flooring is extremely scratch-resistant. The surface layer is dirt-repellent and easy to clean. The sealed design of the click joint system prevents dirt and liquid from penetrating the joints. The soft, top vinyl layer also muffles the sound of sharp little claws when pets walk across it.

Laminate flooring

Laminate flooring, on the other hand, is extremely hard-wearing, scratch-resistant and hygienic thanks to its surface, which is so dense that dirt cannot take hold, making the floor easy to clean. It is also water-resistant. Pergo Sensation surface coating covers the whole upper side, even down in the bevel between the planks, forming a completely sealed surface.
