As people’s love and demand for pets increase, more and more families are starting to keep pets. However, when it comes to choosing flooring materials, many households with pets take into account their pets’ claws, hair, and possible urine issues. So, is SPC flooring suitable for pets? Let’s find out below.
SPC floor is a new type of floor material, which is made of stone plastic composite and has many advantages. First, it is extremely durable and scratch-resistant. Pets’ claws may scratch the floor, but the wear-resistant layer of SPC flooring can effectively protect the floor from scratches by pet’s claws. Secondly, the SPC floor is waterproof, so even if your pet accidentally pees on the floor, it will not penetrate into the floor and is easy to clean. Finally, SPC flooring has a smooth surface and is less likely to accumulate dust and dirt, making it very easy to clean.
Although SPC flooring is pet-friendly, there are still some things to pay attention to. First of all, choose an SPC floor with a larger thickness, because the greater the thickness, the better the wear resistance and impact resistance of the floor. For large pets or pets with strong mobility, choosing a thicker SPC floor can better protect the floor from damage. Secondly, if your pet has a urine accident, it should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent urine from seeping into the gaps in the floor. Prompt cleaning can avoid the growth of odor and bacteria. Third, use a cleaner suitable for SPC floors for cleaning. Avoid using cleaners containing bleach or acidic ingredients to avoid causing damage to the floor.
Additionally, there are some extra precautions you can take to protect your SPC floors. First, before your pet enters the room, you can place a doormat or slippers at the door to prevent your pet’s paws from bringing in mud and debris. Secondly, place a soft pet mattress on the SPC floor to provide a comfortable resting place for pets and reduce their activities on the floor. Also, trim your pet’s claws regularly to reduce scratches on your floors.
To sum up, SPC flooring is a suitable flooring material for pets. It’s durable, waterproof, easy to clean, and has good resistance to scratches from pet’s paws. To protect SPC floors, it is recommended to choose a thicker floor, clean up urine promptly, use appropriate cleaning agents, and take some extra precautions. In this way, you can safely keep pets at home and enjoy the joy and companionship they bring, while maintaining the beauty and quality of your floors.
How to clean pet hair on SPC floor?
Vacuum: Vacuuming is the simplest and most common way to clean pet hair from floor surfaces. Choose a vacuum designed for hard floors and use a floor brush head or a specialized pet hair pick-up head to thoroughly vacuum up pet hair.
Mop: Before mopping your floors, use a wet mop or rubber dusting roller to collect pet hair and clump it together before mopping. Remember to change your mop head or mop cloth frequently to prevent pet hair from spreading across your floors.
Sticky roller: Use sticky roller tools, such as pet hair rollers, sticky paper, etc., to effectively adhere pet hair to the roller. Push the roller across the floor to collect pet hair, then clean the hair off the roller.
Wet Mop Your Floor: When you use a wet mop to clean your floors, the wet mop head can help absorb pet hair. Spray an appropriate amount of detergent or water on the mop head and drag the mop back and forth along the floor surface to remove pet hair and dust.
Electric Floor Cleaning Robots: If you have an electric floor cleaning robot, they usually have vacuuming and sweeping capabilities and can automatically clean up pet hair from the floor. Regular use of a floor cleaning robot can ease your cleaning workload.
No matter which method is used, regular cleaning is the key to keeping your SPC floors clean. It is recommended to clean up pet hair daily or weekly to keep the floor tidy and hygienic.
