Is Shaw Carpet Flooring Pet Friendly?

Is Shaw Carpet Flooring Pet Friendly?

There are many reasons to have carpet in your home! It’s soft, warm, and is a great way to showcase your personal style, with so many colours and patterns to choose from. However, pet owners may worry about the extra wear and tear that their furry friends may inflict on carpeted floors. Shaw carpet flooring has developed their Bellera collection with these fears in mind! Visit us today to see all of our great options from Shaw.  

What to Look for When Choosing Carpet for Pet Friendly Homes 

 
Most pet owners have the same concerns when they are shopping for a carpet that will stand up to their four-legged family members: 

  • Durability 
  • Stain resistance 
  • Cleanability 
  • Construction and colour 

The Bellera collection addresses every one of these potential worries, so that both you and your pets can enjoy beautiful, comfortable Shaw carpet flooring worry free! 

Durability 

Shaw carpet flooring is constructed of nylon fiber making it a fantastic option for your active pets. Nylon has been widely regarded as the most durable and resilient carpet fibre, and can withstand both rambunctious play, as well as spills and other pet messes. Shaw performs a 5-year walk test to prove just how durable their pet friendly carpet is! 

Stain Resistance 

Staining is often the biggest concern pet owners have when they purchase carpet. As much as we love our fur-babies, it’s no secret that even the best kept pets can be messy. Animals that are allowed outdoors can track in dirt and debris from the yard, and accidents happen, whether it’s a knocked over drink, a dug-up house plant, or an unfortunate “potty” accident. Luckily, Shaw carpet flooring is backed by R2X®Soil & Stain Resistance. This technology keeps messes at the surface for longer, making them much easier to clean up before stains set in!  

Cleanability 

Cleanability goes hand in hand with stain resistance. Messes that are cleaned up quickly don’t get the chance to stain your Shaw carpet flooring for good. The pet friendly Bellera collection takes cleanability a step further with a LifeGuard® backing. This spill-proof backing prevents spills and other messes from seeping through your Shaw carpet flooring and into the subfloor which would leave you with smells you just can’t get rid of. The life of your Shaw carpet flooring will be prolonged by cleaning up messes quickly and regular vacuuming to keep the pet hair and dander in your home to a minimum. 

 

Construction & Colour 

Pet owners may fear that when they decide on carpet, they may have to settle on dark colours to hide dirt and pet hair. While it can help, that’s not your only option! With good cleaning habits, you can have whatever style your heart desires! If you tend to put off vacuuming, Shaw carpet flooring with a textured looks and flecks of colour are great options to hide dirt between cleaning sessions. Even more so than colour, it’s important to consider the pile of your Shaw carpet flooring with pets. Low, cut pile is ideal for pets. This is because it’s less likely to get snagged by your pet’s nails and is easy to keep clean with regular vacuuming.
