Carpet flooring in Santa Ana, CA from Avalon Wood Flooring

How to select carpet for homes with pets

Our tagline is "Let Avalon treat you like family," and our pets are very much part of our family. With the constant evolution of modern technology, more and more manufacturers can address this need with extra stain resistance and durability and versions specifically branded as pet-friendly.

One manufacturer tested their carpet line in the cage of a 5600-pound rhino. That's equivalent to 335 pug dogs! You can well imagine the mess that could have been created but, at the end of two weeks, all that was needed was a warm water hose-down. Many manufacturers carry pet-friendly carpets, and we carry them all.

The best carpet floors for a pet-in-residence

Pets can be pretty rough on floors in general when it comes to carpet flooring, but no worries when you are shopping for carpet in Santa Ana because we?ll show you our assortment of pet-resistant rugs.

The most important decision you?ll make is fiber choice because that impacts both aesthetics and performance. While both natural and synthetic categories are excellent choices, synthetics tend to be more stain-resistant.

1. Nylon is the strongest, and when a stain protectant is used, the resistance is superior.

2. Polyester has superior inherent stain resistance because it?s non-absorbent.

3. Olefin (polypropylene), which is commonly associated with the Berber style, is also budget-friendly.

4. Triexta is relatively new to the market but has already established a reputation for strength and permanent stain resistance built into the fiber.

Low pile rugs: best for homes with pets

Low pile rugs are incredible for high traffic areas with large families that include both pets and kids. They feel softer and which makes vacuuming more manageable, which, in turn, makes them less prone to crushing (when the fibers become matted down and the rug loses resilience.) They're also a little more durable, which is why you see them so often in busy offices.
