Why Concrete Floors Are Pet Friendly


f you live with pets, we're sure you consider them an essential member of your family. When choosing floors for your home, you should give careful consideration to how they will affect your pets' comfort and how well they can withstand muddy paws, claws, and pet incidents. There are only a few true pet-friendly flooring materials on the market, and concrete is one of them. Here is why.

Scratch Resistant

During playtime, pets and their claws can scratch flooring such as hardwood, carpet, and vinyl. Concrete floors are scratch-resistant, and when protected with a good sealer or floor wax, they are virtually scratchproof.

They Won't Trap Pet Dander, Fleas Or Mites

Decorative concrete floors have non-porous seamless surfaces. Pet dander, fur, fleas, or mites cannot get trapped as they can in floors like carpets. Instead, they float on the surface. This makes it extremely easy to remove them during routine cleaning and prevent allergies.

Resist Pet Stains And Odors

When the decorative concrete floor is sealed with a protective sealer, pet urine cannot soak into the floor, leaving stains and unpleasant odors. Instead, liquids will sit on the concrete surface, making cleaning easy.

They Can Be Heated

Your pets spend most of their time on the floor, eating, playing, or sleeping. Because air rises when heated, radiant heating can bring great comfort to your pets and save you money on energy bills while creating a healthier environment for your family and pets.

Easy To Clean

Because nothing gets trapped in the concrete floors, cleaning pet fur or muddy paws is as easy as mopping with a damp mop—no more extensive vacuuming or scrubbing with harsh chemicals. To learn how to keep your concrete looking new for longer, read here.


Synthetic carpets, carpet paddings and adhesives, linoleum and some vinyl adhesives can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Concrete floors stained with nontoxic pigments do not release VOCs that can be harmful to humans and pets.
