Is carpet a pet-friendly choice?

Is carpet a pet-friendly choice?

There's a selection of carpeting to suit every homeowner's needs, and that's good news for pet owners. Many top manufacturers offer brands that are specifically designed for pet-friendly homes. These rugged brands, which provide superior stain resistance, are best for active households, too. For example, Don's Mobile Carpet is a carpet store in Casper, Wyoming, that offers carpet flooring by first-rate companies like Mohawk Industries, Stanton, and Godrey Hirst.

Stainmaster PetProtect

Stanton uses Stainmaster PetProtect technology to produce carpeting that is ideal for homes that include pets. The technology is applied to nylon carpets to make them easy to clean and maintain. In addition, moisture is not trapped because of a moisture barrier between the carpet and an underlying cushion layer, and liquid does not leak into the subfloor. As a result, nylon, the most popular carpet fiber for decades, is resilient and wear- and abrasion-resistant.


Mohawk and Godrey Hirst are two of the manufacturers that use SmartStrand fiber to create the pet-friendly carpet. A SmartStrand floor covering has a Nanoloc spill and soil protection system that offers permanent stain protection, unlike other types of carpeting. In addition, the technology is applied to triexta rather than nylon. Triexta was introduced to consumers in 2009. It is very soft and durable as well as hydrophobic, meaning it does not absorb liquids.
