How to Choose a Pet Friendly Carpet

In a previous post we addressed the issue on how to take proper care of your carpet in a pet-friendly home; therefore, in this article, we at Denver CleanPro will delve a little more on this topic.


It's true: eventually your pet will get some sort of stain in your carpet, one way or another. However, before getting a carpet, choose one made with stain-resistant materials like polypropylene, also known as olefin, that is easy to clean. Carpets with gel or waterproof backing are ideal as well.


When choosing your carpet, take into account your dog's fur and fur colour. It isn't just a matter of style and to prove you love your dog: it's about the shedding. Dogs with short hair like Dobermans or Rottweilers might not be so much of an issue unless you have a light-coloured carpet, but other breeds like Siberian Huskies or Samoyeds shed quite a lot of hair that can be long and stick out on your carpet like a sore thumb.


Fibers can play an important role in this decision as well. Dogs' nails can catch on long fibers and if your pet is playful, it might be tempted to yank at the looped yarn.


Carpets emit chemical components, also known as Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs, that can be harmful to humans as well as pets if in high concentrations. Look up some of this information and go for carpets with the Green Label Plus Certification.
