Best Carpets for Pets

Best Carpets for Pets: in order to find the best types of carpet for pets, a few things should be considered.

Home owners looking for the best carpet for pets, generally have two main concerns; durability and stain resistance. Pet accidents, and simple wear and tear from pet traffic can take a heavy toll on your carpet and shorten its life span. These days, consumers are including health and environmental advantages to their list of flooring “must haves”, and finding carpet that meets these concerns is getting less and less complicated.

Carpet is a practical flooring option because:

it’s easier on the feet than most other types of flooring,

it prevents slips and cushion falls,

carpet insulates a room, reducing noise level

carpet can help reduce the cost of heating and air conditioning.

A common concern with carpet flooring is that it may affect asthma and allergy sufferers by clinging to dust and pet dander. Both The Carpet and Rug Institute and the Canadian Carpet Institute assert that wall-to-wall carpeting actually traps allergens until they can be vacuumed. Both organizations claim that carpet is the best choice for allergy sufferers, and the best carpet for pets as long as you vacuum and deep clean your carpet regularly.

If you have your heart set on the best types of carpet for pets, you’ll want to take the following factors into account when making your selection:

Fabrics: Carpeting can be made from wool, which is a natural fiber, or from synthetic fibers like nylon, olefin and polyester. Wool carpets tend to be the softest, and are naturally flame-retardant. Wool also breaks down more quickly in landfills, but it’s more expensive than synthetic fibers and it’s not nearly as stain-resistant.

Carpeting made from nylon fibers is popular because it’s durable, stain-resistant and affordable, making it the Best Carpets for Pets. Olefin and polyester carpeting is cheaper than nylon but carpets made from these fibres are also less durable.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Some carpets may contain VOC’s. VOC’S are chemicals that can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, and they can have negative neurological effects.

Newer carpets generally contain lower levels of VOCs, and carpets that carry The Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label are certified to be low-VOC. The manufacturing process for newer carpets also requires less water and energy, and these carpets are often made from recycled materials.

Carpets made just for pets

Some carpets have been specially designed primarily to prevent pet stains from soaking through to your carpet padding, where the moisture can harbour bacteria and facilitate mold growth. It’s also a good idea to consider carpet tiles, which make replacing damaged sections of your carpet easier. Some colors or patterns can hide pet hair better than others, so considering this when choosing new carpet is a definite plus.

Once you’ve installed your beautiful, new, best types of carpet for pets, be sure to clean it often and clean it well. Keeping your new carpet for pets clean and dry inhibits mold growth. To give your carpet the best care, choose a vacuum that can reduce dust in the air.

  • 5 star review  We had our carpet cleaned by them when my baby is three months old. They use plant based solution so it’s baby and pets friendly. Carpet got cleaned very well except one spot was stained with oil which came back to the surface after couple days which was exactly what they told us what might happen since it’s oil. Other than that, the carpet looks fresh and clean and they were able to remove couple of tough stains left by our dog. Will definitely use them again!

  • 5 star review  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • 5 star review  My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!

  • 5 star review  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!
