Will Pets Permanently Damage My Hardwood Floors?

We love our dogs and cats, but our hardwood floors do not love them. Some of the deepest, longest, and most plentiful gouges in wood flooring come from dog claws and, to a lesser extent, cat claws.

Installing hardwood flooring that ranks high on the Janka hardness scale is one way to begin. Species like Brazilian Walnut (ipe), maple, and bamboo (not truly a wood but a type of grass) do an excellent job at standing up to frenzied claws. Lay out mats and rugs where animals tend to rest. Regular claw clipping, though, is the best way to reduce nail damage on flooring. If the dog loves to race for the mail coming the the door slot, consider installing an exterior mailbox.

Don’t put all of the blame on the family pet. Also remember to protect against other sharp, pointy objects, such as high heels and furniture legs.
