Should I Use Polished Concrete If I Have Pets?
Unlike carpeted floors that trap pet dander and fur, Polished Concrete Floors don’t harbor fleas, ticks, or mites that your pet might bring into your house. Smooth floor surfaces such as Polished Concrete Floors are simply the best flooring option for pet owners.
Polished Concrete Floors are the perfect non-toxic solution for pets (and children). Without the harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) usually found in new carpets, laminates, and some other flooring materials, you can feel confident that from the very beginning, your dog is safe to lick the floor clean of food spills!
Even natural hardwood flooring can cause problems, as polyurethane sealers emit volatile organic compounds. VOCs are linked to respiratory disease and certain cancers. Simply put, a polished concrete floor does not release VOCs that can be harmful to you nor your pets.
Because Polished Concrete Flooring is monolithic—meaning there are no seams, there’s no place for dander to get trapped. Frequently vacuuming Polished Concrete surfaces will create a hypoallergenic environment for you and your pets.
There is honestly not a better floor choice than polished concrete for your family pets, whether you have dogs, cats, birds, or the more exotic kind of animals. Because Polished Concrete Floors are such a hard surface with no topical coatings, it is extremely difficult to scratch, so you won’t have to worry about sharp claws or beaks scraping up the floor.
Maybe even more importantly, Polished Concrete Floors do not retain smells, so you can keep your home fresh and fragrance-free. Another bonus of Polished Concrete Floors for pet lovers is that it is very easy to clean with just hot water, so it is extremely convenient for a home with animals.
Thanks to its smooth surface, Polished Concrete Floors also has no grooves or areas that can catch and hold fur, hair, or dander. That means that those who have severe hay fever and allergy sufferers will have a much better time living with pets.
Not only that, but your fur baby will also love your Polished Concrete Floors in both summer AND winter. Thanks to the natural insulation properties of concrete floors, your pets can enjoy every temperature they need from laying on the floor, whether they’re looking for extra warmth in our Sydney winters or added coolness in the summer.
