Hardwood Floors

Whereas hardwood floors are prone to getting scratched by dogs, they can be a great option for cat owners. Like other smooth surface floors, cleaning up litter, dirt, or fur is an easy task with hardwood. You?ll definitely want to make sure your hardwood is sealed properly to better protect it from any accidents from kittens or older cats. As always, you?ll want to clean up any form of moisture as quickly as possible to avoid odors from being absorbed. Consider a more durable wood, and be sure to ask our friendly specialists which seals and finishes are best for pets!
