What are the benefits of luxury vinyl for pet-friendly homes?
Are you a pet-lover? Is your pet as much a part of the family as your children? Then you need flooring that will handle what your pet can do it. Welcome to luxury vinyl flooring.
Pets and luxury vinyl
We all love our pets. But let us face it, sometimes they can be so messy. Whether it’s tracking in mud from outside, bringing you a dead animal as a present to the front door, or having an accident, pets can be challenging on floors. That’s why we think that luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile are perfect for a pets household. Luxury vinyl is made of PVC, which is a standard construction material. PVC is completely waterproof, so that translates to a waterproof floor. That mud that Fido just tracked in? A wet mop can handle that. The dead bird? No effect. The accident? Soapy water and a mop take care of it.
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) or tile (LVT) is composed of compressed layers of PVC. There is the backing layer that goes on the subfloor. It is usually 20 millimeters thick. Then the design layer, with the image of what you want, is 8 millimeters to 20 millimeters thick. Then there is the surface layer that protects the design layer from scratches, stains, and scuffs. The LVP and LVT are usually put down with a click-together system that seals the subfloor from the top.
