Pet Floor

Recent Posts

Your pets are your dear friends and esteemed members of the family. But they can also be troublemakers and wreak havoc on the floors in your home. From scratching surfaces during playtime and having messy accidents to carrying mud and debris on their paws into your home and spilling water from bowls, both cats and dogs can cause significant damage to your floors.

Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between your pets and a clean and beautiful floor. At Metroflor, we’ve perfected the craft of designing and manufacturing pet-friendly flooring products, which are made not only to resist your pets’ playful ways but also be easy to clean and enhance your home's aesthetics.

The Beauty of Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)

Luxury vinyl plank, often abbreviated as LVP, has gained significant flooring market share for good reason. LVP offers the best of both worlds: the natural look of hardwood flooring and the durability and ease of maintenance of vinyl. It's available in a wide range of realistic wood patterns, allowing you to achieve the aesthetic you desire for your home without the fragility or maintenance headaches of real hardwood.

When it comes to households with pets, LVP has some clear advantages over other flooring options.

Scratch and Stain Resistance

Traditional hardwood floors, although natural and aesthetically pleasing, are vulnerable to scratches, especially if you have pets, children, or there’s high traffic in your home. As a remedy, you might choose to install carpet instead of hardwood, but this can introduce its own set of challenges, including the potential for trapping odors, stains, and allergens.

LVP, on the other hand, is designed to be highly scratch-resistant. Its durable wear layer provides a protective barrier against the daily wear and tear caused by pet claws, ensuring your floors remain pristine.

Stain resistance is another key feature of LVP. Accidents happen, whether it's an upturned water bowl, a knocked-over food dish or muddy pawprints. With LVP, you can easily clean up spills without worrying about permanent stains or damage to your floors.

Metroflor's LVP: Designed with Pets in Mind

While LVP in general offers significant benefits for pet owners, Metroflor takes it a step further with their innovative LVP floors featuring FX2 and FX3 surface protectants.

FX2: Abrasion and Stain Resistance

Metroflor's FX2 surface protectant is a game-changer for pet owners. It offers exceptional abrasion and stain resistance, two critical characteristics for protecting floors from the scratches and stains that come with the territory of pet ownership. This means your LVP floors can withstand the daily activities of your pets while maintaining their beauty and integrity.

FX3: Antimicrobial Protection

If you want even more peace of mind when it comes to maintaining a clean and healthy environment for your family, Metroflor's FX3 surface protectant is an excellent choice. In addition to the features of FX2, FX3 includes an antimicrobial treatment that inhibits odors and the growth of mold and mildew, both on the surface and underneath the planks.

Not only will your floors be resistant to scratches and stains, but they will also actively help reduce odors and prevent the development of mold and mildew. This added layer of protection ensures your home remains fresh and hygienic, even in areas frequented by your pets.
