Carpet in Salem, OR from Surfaces NW

Are there good carpet choices if I have pets?

If you are a pet owner as well as a fan of carpet flooring, you’ll be glad to know that pets and carpeting are a great mix! Several manufacturers produce carpet that was designed with pets in mind. Carpet floors are warm and cozy underfoot, and they’re comfy under pet paws, too. Surfaces NW, founded in 2011, offers a wide variety of pet-friendly carpet in Salem, Oregon.


Typically, 'pet-tough' carpeting is made with time-honored nylon or triexta, a material introduced to the marketplace in 2009. Nylon is treated in the factory for stain resistance, while triexta is inherently stain resistant. Nylon has been the most popular synthetic carpet material for decades. It is resilient, meaning it bounces back after heavy pieces of furniture or electronics are removed. Likewise, it stands up well to heavy traffic. Therefore, it's able to retain its original look years after it was installed. High-quality nylon carpeting lasts up to 25 years.


Shaw is one of the manufacturers that offer pet-friendly carpeting. A Shaw carpet is shielded by a patented R2X Stain and Soil Resistance treatment system. This is not just a surface treatment. Instead, fibers are treated from the base to the tip. Because of this stain resistance, pet accidents, spills, and muddy paw prints are easy to clean. R2X Stain and Soil Remover is part of the treatment system. When clean-up is necessary, you can depend on this patented no-rinse technology to keep the carpet looking new.
