From muddy paw prints to household accidents and anything in-between, Karndean floors are designed with pets in mind.
Scratch and scuff resistant
In addition to working as a barrier against scuff marks, stains and fine scratches from our excitable furry friends, Karndean’s surface protection system, K Guard + puts commercial-grade durability into any family home without sacrificing on appearance. All Karndean floors benefit from our K-Guard+ surface protection system. Using PU technology, K-Guard+ provides a hygienic and durable finish that will protect your floor for years to come. Be sure your pets' nails are a reasonable length to help protect your floors against deep scratches. We recommend looking at some of our more textured products to provide extra traction for paws and for day-to-day durability.
Karndean flooring is softer and quieter underfoot than natural wood and stone products. It will help to absorb sound and reduce the pitter-patter of pet nails across the floor.
Karndean floors are designed for a long, low-maintenance life with minimal interference in daily routines. Even with pet hairs and muddy paw prints, regular cleaning with a pH neutral cleaner will help keep your floor at its best. Be sure to check out our cleaning and maintenance FAQs for more information.
Maintaining our floors is also polish-free, greatly reducing both chemical and water usage (making it more environments friendly) compared to traditional maintenance routines.
