Need new flooring, but afraid carpet isn’t an option for your family? Think again! Our sponsor, Flooring America, now has the best carpet for families on the market! It is kid-proof, pet-proof, and stain-resistant.
One Monday morning, I walked downstairs at about 6:00 AM to find my husband on his hands and knees scrubbing the living room floor. The dog looked at me sadly from her crate. She had gotten in to the garbage on Saturday night and apparently whatever she ate then had decided to exact it’s revenge late Sunday night. Yes, there was a stinky, gross, doggy mess all over our downstairs. The dog had apparently had several accidents, and then walked through them all over the place. The only saving grace was that the mess was on laminate and tile flooring so it was fairly easy to clean up.
When we purchased our house about 6 years ago it was wall to wall builder grade, beige carpet. We have 2 kids, 3 cats and a dog. Keeping that carpet clean was a nightmare. So we worked room by room and eventually got it all ripped out and replaced it with what we thought was the best option. We put tile in the kitchen and bathrooms and laminate wood flooring in the living room and dining room. There was no way I was putting down carpet that was just going to be ruined by kids and animals. But now, there is a brand new option for families who prefer carpet – Tigressá®H2O from Flooring America.
Tigressá® H2O is waterproof! This is a game changer for families who want carpet. The backing on Tigressa H2O prevents liquids from soaking through the carpet. It is a strong yet soft, eco-friendly carpet that is kid-proof and pet-proof. Tigressá® H2O features advanced repel technology that protects it even against the toughest pet stains. Clean-up is simple, and it dissipates pet, smoke and other household odors. I honestly had to scrape the mess from our dog off our laminate flooring. I’m thinking the Tigressá® H2O would have been a much easier clean up. We’ve also had cats that liked to mark their territory in corners, which has ruined our carpet. No problem for Tigressá® H2O since the urine wouldn’t even penetrate the carpet.

Our next flooring project is to update all the carpet upstairs and on our stairs. The cats have taken to urinating in a corner of one of our landings and scratching at the edge of a few stairs. I’m excited to look in to Tigressa when it’s time to replace that carpet.
