Greensboro carpet flooring

At Floor Coverings International Triad, we know how much owners in the Triad area love their pets—so much so that we’re often asked if having pets means they should forego carpeting! Thankfully, pets and cozy carpeting can absolutely co-exist; you just need to find the right carpet. Read on to learn more about the best carpets for animal-inclusive households.


Frieze carpeting is a low pile option that features a tight weave construction. These carpets still offer the coziness and traditional looks that homeowners expect from a carpet purchase, but frieze’s construction means that dirt and pet stains will have a hard time sinking deep into your carpet’s fibers. Frieze carpets are also a very durable carpeting option, so they can stand up to Fido’s nails or play.


Sisal carpeting is a natural carpeting option known for its strength and durability. When homeowners choose sisal, they can rest assured they’ve picked a carpet that will last through many years of pet paw prints. Sisal carpets are also free of VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), if your family is interested in additional carpeting benefits beyond pet friendly options.]

Carpet Tiles

For homeowners who are particularly conservative about potential pet stains, carpet tiles can be a worthwhile investment for peace of mind. Carpet tiles let the homeowner replace only a certain section of carpeting at a time, so if your pet repeatedly soils one area, that area alone can be replaced.

We hope the choices above help homeowners see that pet-friendly carpeting options do exist, and at Floor Coverings International Kernersville, we’re dedicated to helping you find the right option for your family.
