Which Upholstery You Should Choose When Having Pets
Are you a pet owner who truly loves the furry friend? But you are equally in love with your sofa-sectionals and have to deal with the unclean upholstery and scratches now and then? Your pet isn’t trying to damage them, but simply climbing and sitting on it. But some furniture upholstery materials are more durable and can resist more wear and tear. Take a look at the pet-friendly upholstery that can prevent scratches by claws, pet’s hair clinging, and more.
One major reason that makes leather upholstery the best is that your pet’s fur won’t stick to it. It is easy to maintain and the best part is it comes in a wide variety of colors. So, you can easily choose the color that matches your home color-scheme. It doesn’t cling easily and you can also remove the spills and water that accidentally falls on it by wiping it away. The claws of your dogs and cats can cause several scratches on your leather upholstery/pleather, but that will ultimately enhance the weathered look.
Microfiber Upholstery is synthetic and another great upholstery choice if you own a pet. It is easy to clean, low maintenance but wears equally fast. Pets’ hair is likely to go unnoticed on it, and so you can remove any if found using a lint brush. In case of any spills or stains, remove using a soft cloth and mild detergent.
Canvas upholstery is another great consideration if you are a pet owner. The cotton fabric is durable and won’t tear away easily. If it gets dirty over time, simply take out the slipcover and machine wash and let it tumble dry. In case it gets torn, its replacement won’t be heavy on your pocket too.
Another fabric for consideration for all the pet owners is denim. Though not perfect for the living areas, but you can try using it on the couch, settees, etc in the entertainment rooms, lounge area or so. It is equally easy to spot clean.
