Are Floor Coatings Safe for Pets?

In recent years, Americans have become more attuned to the dangers of chemicals hiding in everyday items throughout the house. From the glue that holds furniture together to the stain on your hardwood floors, just about anything can be contaminated with chemicals. Homes with dogs, cats, and other pets are right to question whether something like floor coatings are safe for pets.

The biggest potential issue with floor coatings depends on whether the substance contains volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which are inevitably released into the air over time.

VOCs have been linked to health problems ranging from irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, to more severe problems like kidney and liver damage. Health problems from VOCs happen in both people and animals.

Most concerning to home owners is that VOCs are known to cause cancer in animals.

Not all floor coatings emit these toxic fumes. Polyurethane and some other products that have been around for years unfortunately do. At Prestige Floor Coating, we developed our proprietary formula to be 100% free of toxins.

What Makes a Floor Coating Safe for Pets?

When choosing a floor coating that is safe for pets, consider several points:

  • Contains no VOCs
  • Applies and dries in just 48 hours or less
  • Smooth surface, easy to clean up pet waste
  • Slip-resistant (if you have large, active dogs, you know what we mean!)

An eco-friendly polymer makes an excellent pet-safe flooring solution. In Maryland and the surrounding region, Prestige Floor Coating offers environmentally friendly concrete coatings that are safe for pets, children, and everybody else.

DIY vs. Prestige Floor Coating
