• Keep in mind that pets’ nails can scratch or snag and this can damage some types of flooring more than others.

• Pet urine stains and leaves odours. Some types of flooring let you deal with these accidents better than others.

• Pets will most likely track dirt indoors so you have to think about how easily you’ll be able to clean after, depending on the flooring you choose.

• Do keep pets nails have short and smooth to prevent damage to the floors.
