If you are looking at engineered timber flooring and have a cat or dog in the household, then engineered timber is the perfect choice with simple routine care & maintenance.

Feeding your pets

Protect floors with mats
One of the easiest ways of caring for engineered timber floors is to use rugs, runners and welcome mats in high-traffic areas like entry points, hallways and kitchens. These coverings can help prevent the dirt on the bottom of paws from grinding into the floor and potentially damaging the finish.
Clean spills immediately
As soon as spills or accidents happen, mop them up with paper towels or a soft micro fibre cloth. This prevents liquids from penetrating the timber, which can leave a residue.
