What is the best flooring for pets?

Mike Nakhel Flooring in Jacksonville, FL, has a large selection of floor coverings that will make you and your pet happy.

Top companies like Mohawk and Shaw produce flooring with pet owners in mind and back these tough and durable brands with a comprehensive pet-proof warranty. Choose tile, laminate, luxury vinyl, or carpet.

Tile flooring

Tile flooring is highly scratch, stain, and water resistant, and its smooth surface is a 'breeze' to clean.

Ceramic tile is made of coarse clay, while harder and denser porcelain tile is made of fine kaolin clay. Wood-look and stone-look porcelain tile styles are popular at this time.

Laminate flooring

Laminate is your most cost-effective option if you're in the market for pet-friendly flooring. This multiple-layer floor covering has a fiberboard core which will always be warm under your pet's paws.

In addition, waterproof laminate flooring, which repels water for about one day, is a good option.

Luxury vinyl flooring

Floating floors or glue-down luxury vinyl plank and tile floors can be installed anywhere in the home.

Top brands are 100 percent waterproof and feature a thick transparent surface layer that provides ample protection for the wood, stone, ceramic, or concrete image layer.


Carpeting designed for pet owners is highly stain resistant, meaning that spills or pet accidents remain close to the surface, where they can be removed without scrubbing. In addition, this carpet flooring is often made with abrasion-resistant nylon or naturally waterproof Triexta.
