Have pets? Carpet flooring is for you!

Pets and carpeting weren't always a great combination in years past, but those days are gone. Today, many flooring manufacturers produce carpet brands made for pet owners, and comprehensive warranties back these brands.

If you have pets, head over to Allen Carpet in New Rochelle, NY, where you'll find a large selection of the latest carpet styles.

Pet-protective carpet floors

Typically, pet protective carpets excel at keeping spills and pet accidents on the surface, removing them with little effort and without stains. But, perhaps the most prized quality, according to pet owners, is that carpeting is simple to care for.

Most companies have a unique high-tech protective system that can be counted on to work throughout a carpet's lifespan.

Nylon and triexta

Durable nylon is the most abrasion-resistant carpet fiber, while newer-to-the-market triexta is the most stain-resistant fiber.

Almost all animal-friendly carpet is made from one of these two fibers, and as with any product, a review of the warranty will help you decide which one is best for your home. 'Anti-microbial' and 'odor destroying' are two terms you might find.


Mohawk, well-known for its pet-proof floor covering, markets triexta under the brand name SmartStrand. Mohawk simplifies its warranty with these words: 'All Pets. All accidents. All The Time.'

Most notably, extra soft SmartStrand is made in part from renewable plant-based ingredients, and it's hydrophobic, meaning that it does not absorb moisture. Carpet lifespan is 25 years or more.
