What is the best carpet for pets?

What is the best carpet for pets?

LifeGuard Carpet By Shaw is your best choice for carpet 

What is the best carpet for pets is one of the most common questions I have run into in my 30 years of operating a local carpet cleaning company. Hi my name is Paul Dixon, Owner of Carpet Renovations, Inc. serving the Tulsa & Broken Arrow Oklahoma Communities with our top of the line carpet cleaning service including pet odor removal and pet damage restoration services. Up until now I have not ran into a carpet that I could honestly recommend to my customers that would assure them if there dog, cat, or other family pet member urinated on it over an extended period of time that we as a professional carpet cleaning company could get the pet urine out. We have been quite successful in helping pet owners with this problem for years but up until now a 100% successful pet odor removal has not been possible with a cleaning alone. We have had to resort to extensive pet damage restoration which would include pad cushion removal, sealing subflooring, and enzyme treatments. These processes work well but can be very expensive to the pet owner.

If Bigger is Better, Then Thicker Carpet Must be, Too!

If Bigger is Better, Then Thicker Carpet Must be, Too!

If you are looking for plush, rich carpeting for your home, then yes, thick carpet is what you should get. Thick plush carpet is great for living areas, a game room or even your master bedroom. However, for a dense and durable carpet, then thick carpeting is not your best choice. Areas such as hallways or a room that has a lot of traffic would not be the best place for the newer style of thick carpeting. For density, you want each inch to have more yarn, and that will give you longer durability. How much carpet fiber is defined per inch on the carpet density and face weight, and both of these aspects play an important role when it comes to determining the durability of carpet.
