Pet–Friendly Flooring Tips – Vinyl Flooring

  • Clean up spills, dirt, and debris immediately
  • Keep pets' nails trimmed to minimize floor damage
  • Protect the subfloor with a moisture barrier or underlayment such as cork or foam rubber
  • Choose larger vinyl floor tiles so the floor will have fewer seams (this can help reduce the risk of subfloor damage due to moisture absorption)
  • Put pet boots or nail caps on your pets to reduce slipping and floor damage
  • Use non–slip mats or rugs under food and water dishes, as well as in running paths and high–traffic pet areas
