Best Pet-Friendly Floors
If you buy a new home in Ellicott City, or if you’re selling yours and need to remove pet-damaged flooring, check out these creative options.

Best Pet-Friendly Floors

The best pet-friendly floors include:

  • Hardwoods
  • Luxury vinyl tile
  • Porcelain tile

Hardwoods

Hardwood floors are naturally durable and reliable. Just how durable they are depends on the type of wood, though. Among the toughest are bamboo, oak, walnut and maple, which can stand up to pet claws and heavy-duty family traffic.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

We’re not talking about your grandma’s vinyl tile. Today’s luxury vinyl tile is pet-friendly because it’s scratch-resistant and stain-resistant, and it’s much more affordable than hardwood and marble.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tile is easy to maintain, and the glaze on it prevents it from absorbing pet accidents and odors. Just remember that if you have a pet of your own, porcelain doesn’t provide very good traction – and it can be hard for pets to get around when they don’t have anything to grip.
