Pet-friendly carpet is possible in your home. You just need to identify the right flooring for your home. When you love your pets as much as we do, you want to make sure your pet and your humans are completely comfortable at home. That means expecting pet messes, including muddy paws and the occasional pet accident. Lucky for you, we have first-hand experience with pet-friendly carpets and flooring, and we're in the flooring business. That's right, most of the people that work at Creative Carpet & Flooring in Mokena and Highland have pets.

Our Recommended Pet-Friendly Flooring Options

We've been in the flooring business for several decades, and we recommend a carpet that provides warmth and is resistant to staining, fading, and bleach. This makes it really easy for you to keep clean. Plus, the warmth of the carpet will keep your pets warm in the winter and comfy and soft all year round. Our pet-friendly recommendations are both from Shaw and include:

  1. Pet Perfect™ carpet (upgrade to Pet Perfect+ with LifeGuard® Spill-Proof Technology for even better protection)
  2. Floorté

Why Pet-Friendly Flooring?

Stain Protection Is Ideal for Pet Pee

Innovated for total surface protection against stubborn stains, Pet Perfect is designed for ultimate resistance to staining, fading, and bleach.

- Advanced fade and bleach protection

- Built-in stain resistance

Easy Cleaning For Dog Hair and Cat Hair

Pet Perfect’s innovative fiber easily releases pet hair during vacuuming for quick and easy clean-up.

Waterproof & Scratchproof

Bring us your best mess: spills and stains are no match for Shaw Floorté's high-performance, low-maintenance waterproof floors. Available in a variety of design options.

Worry-Free With Pet Stain Warranty

Pet Perfect and Floorté's warranties cover all pet stains, giving you peace of mind.

For People, The Planet & Pets

Easier cleaning means fewer harsh chemicals. Designed to support healthy home goals.

What's the Best Carpet for Pets?

We recommend Pet Perfect™ and Pet Perfect+ with LifeGuard® Spill-Proof Technology for homes with pets.

Produced with ANSO® High-Performance Carpet
Elevated above traditional P.E.T. for more durability
Resistant to bleach and other household cleaners
Formulated for easy cleaning (with R2X®)
Effective for the life of the floor – industry-leading warranty
Completely covered, carpet to cushion
Two backing technologies – SoftBac® & LifeGuard®

Don't Forget the Cushion

True innovation is the sum of all its parts. In addition to the innovations in ANSO High-Performance P.E.T., Pet Perfect products are treated with both R2X and ColorGuard through Shaw’s proprietary CleanStart process. Above all, Shaw’s products are resistant to soil, stains, bleach, and fading. But they are only as good as the cushioning under the carpet.

Pet Perfect carpet styles feature SoftBac® Platinum, which offers a no-wrinkle guarantee, improved sound absorption, and enhanced comfort underfoot. Furthermore, all Pet Perfect+ styles are backed by Blue with LifeGuard Spill-Proof Technology. Hence, this reduces pet odors and means your cushion and subfloor are protected from every type of pet accident.

What's the best pet-friendly hard surface flooring?

We recommend Shaw's Floorté line of flooring, specifically the Elite Series. It is:

  • 100% Waterproof  - This PVC-Free 100% waterproof mineral core is the latest innovation in waterproof flooring.
  • 15-Year Scratch Warranty - PawDefense Technology is a thermo-resin topcoat for Shaw Floors’ mineral core platforms, offering an unprecedented 15-year scratch warranty.
  • Enhanced Natural Realism - A new embossing technique that more closely mimics the look of real hardwood by creating greater depth and dimension in every plank.
