Shopping for Flooring

There are many varieties of flooring that are family and pet friendly.

Pet Friendly Carpets

Carpet fiber made with Stainmaster would be a great solution. Stainmaster is a clear, colourless protection dye created for carpet which was originally created by DuPont. This protection is applied directly into the carpet fibers when they make the nylon with a carbon insert to cut down the static electric shocks that some carpets get in the winter.

Recently, Stainmaster has also produced a new “pet protect” formula for carpet fiber to make it easier to clean when your pets have an accident. “Magic Fresh” carpet made by Beaulieu is an environmentally-friendly carpet treatment specially formulated to eliminate common household odors from pets, food and cigarette smoke. It is a self-renewing, odor reducing formula that is effective for the life of the carpet.

Family Friendly Vinyl Plank Flooring

Another popular flooring product ideal for a busy family friendly home is vinyl planking. We have several vinyl plank products but, not quite like these two. Beaulieu has a couple of new vinyl plank products called Adventure and Expedition. This engineered click 7” and 9” plank has cork on the back of each plank and is 100% waterproof. This cork feature is cost effective as the customer does not need to purchase a sound block underlayment if you are in a condo. These 4 ft Adventure planks and 6 ft Expedition planks are suitable for a wide range of applications within your home including floating it over radiant heat. There are 6 Adventure colours and 12 Expedition colours to choose from.

This flooring has a 30 year residential warranty. If you are looking for vinyl plank that is very easy to take care of and looks like wood these are two products to check out at Impression Floors behind Costco.
