I have dogs, is luxury vinyl flooring a good option?

Tuesday, March 1, 2022 6:57 AM

Luxury vinyl is a tough flooring material that stands up to daily wear, ideal for animal-friendly homes.

Best of all, many manufacturers recognize the need for highly stain-resistant luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring. Therefore, they offer innovative brands designed with pets in mind and highly active households.

Core layer

Family-owned Prestige Flooring Center in Cathedral City, California, offers a large selection of LVT and vinyl plank flooring, including high-quality waterproof brands, abrasion, and stain-resistant.

Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring usually has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. WPC and SPC flooring tolerate standing water.

Wear layer

There is a backing layer under the core layer of the luxury vinyl plank with an image layer on top of it. When choosing one of the toughest luxury vinyl brands, the stone, wood, or ceramic image layer is well protected by a thick 20-mil wear layer.
This transparent surface layer is easy to clean and tolerant of high foot traffic and activity from small or large dogs.

Image layer

Pet-proof brands aren't just functional; they show off the upscale look for which luxury vinyl flooring is known. Stone look LVT mimics stones ranging from marble to slate, and wood-look LVP or LVT imitates domestic and exotic wood species.

Top-of-the-line luxury vinyl flooring has a textured surface that feels like the natural material it simulates.
