Pet accidents and wear and tear from four-legged and two-legged traffic can take a major toll on your carpet. Here in Alaska at Fairbanks Cleanpro, we specialize in removing stains and odor from your carpet. So we know that when it comes time to replace your carpet, pet owners should look for stain resistance and durability. Here are a few tips on getting a carpet that can withstand life with pets.

Why is carpet a good choice for pets?

Wall-to-wall carpeting is more comfortable for your pets; after all, pets are closer to the floor than we are. It is also a safer, softer surface for their little footpads that tend to slip on tile and hardwood flooring. Carpet also absorbs the tap, tap, tap of paws with long enough nails to hit the floor. And if you happen to have a cloven-hoofed pet, it's even better.

Consider the Materials

Carpeting is made from natural wool, nylon, olefin, or polyester. Wool carpet is luxurious and soft and is naturally flame-retardant, but it is more expensive than synthetic fibers and not as stain-resistant. Carpeting made from nylon fibers is popular because it's durable, stain-resistant and affordable. Olefin and polyester are cheaper than nylon but less durable.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

New carpet may contain VOCs. These chemicals can cause eye, nose and throat irritation and can have slight neurological effects on you and your pet. Look for carpets that carry The Carpet and Rug Institute's Green Label. This certifies the carpet as being low-VOC.

Carpets Made for Pets

Some carpets have been specially designed to prevent pet stains from soaking through to the padding where the moisture can foster bacteria and mold growth. You might also think about carpet tiles, which make replacing damaged sections of the carpet easier. Look for carpet that has stain-hiding colors or patterns.
