Many pet owners have assumed that bamboo flooring simply isn’t an option when pets live in the house. However, there are many great flooring options that can be safely used with indoor pets. Bamboo is a great way to have floors that work well for virtually any type of home, even with pets present.

One thing that homeowners do need to be vigilant about is how susceptible these floors are to scratches. Though some types of bamboo are harder than others, many have found it helpful to use flooring samples to see how well they resist scratches first.

Regularly trimming a pet’s nails is the best way to ensure that the floor doesn’t get scratched. Pets that are difficult about having their claws trimmed might be good candidates for soft paws, which are inserts placed over the claws to prevent scratching.

Ordinary scratches are easy to get out during the buffing and cleaning process. The most effective cleaners used on bamboo flooring feature aluminum oxide. It’s important to carefully check the ingredients used in a cleaning product to ensure that it will do the job.

Preventing spills from food is a better alternative to trying to cope with them after they happen. Spill-proof bowls are best. However, using rubber floor mats on pet and eating areas is also a good option.

It’s always important for pet owners to do what they can to eliminate accidents. Cleaning up urine right away is especially important. This is because urine is capable of creating very visible stains that are tricky to get rid of. If a pet does have an accident that leaves a strain behind, consider sanding and refinishing to restore it to its former beauty.

Bamboo is becoming a flooring type of choice for many homeowners. It is not only very durable, but is one of the most sustainable types available. Pet owners can safely consider this as an option.

When we’re tired, agitated, or upset, it’s always nice to have a “happy place” where we know we’re safe and comfortable. Be it a favorite chair, your bed, or a home office, a place that we enjoy and is explicitly ours can almost always make us feel better. When you have these places, it’s comforting to know you’ll never have to worry about finding somebody in your recliner, or come home to your crisply-made bed swirled in a twist of blankets.

This piece of mind is incredibly important to us. So, wouldn’t it then make sense that our pets would appreciate the same thing? Of course it does! For all the unconditional love and friendship our pets give us, giving them a bed or cushion all their own is really the least we can do for them.

Pet beds not only give pets something that becomes theirs, it will also make their lives happier and more comfortable. Would you want to lie down on a cold linoleum floor? Probably not, but you could definitely see yourself in a cozy memory foam bed, and your pets will too.

Adequately padded pet pads and cushions will ease the burden on their joints, helping with the aging process as well as the recovery process should a furry friend require surgery. The Foam Factory, an online source of pet beds, can provide the comfort your pet needs.

The best part though, is when your pet feels good, it makes you feel good too. So giving them a place to call their own really is a win-win!
