Many of us have pets at home and we have all dealt with the frustration of having to keep our furniture clean from all the wonderful things that pets track in. Not to forget their wonderful hair that seems to just stick to everything. So, the question is: What is the best material to get for furniture if you have pets? If you’re thinking that it’s time to get a new couch or maybe you’re looking to get your first couch and you have pets then there are many things to consider such as:
- Claw scratched
- Pet hair
- Stains from unexpected accidents
To be able to make cleaning easier and combat the wear and tear that pets bring to your furniture we have compiled a list of the best fabric that you’ll be keenly interested in getting if you have these beloved animals or are thinking about getting one. These materials are also great for easy cleaning in general so if you have kids these would be a good option as well.
- You guessed it! …Leather!
Leather is the best option when it comes to pets and kids. Such material is easy to clean and doesn’t hold onto hair. Leather is very easy to take care of as well. In addition to this, it ages well and pairs with just about any color you want in your home. If your beloved little pet likes to go out in the rain and snow and then come in to leave mud paw prints all over your couch, then leather is the best option because it cleans off with just a little wipe. The only down side is that leather does scratch. The key to combating this is to get a higher quality leather. You can tell the quality of leather by taking your nail and scratching the leather. If you’re able rub the scratch out of the leather then you know that the quality of it is very good.
The next best material for a couch is microfiber. It isn’t as easy to clean as leather but it comes as a second best. It is less expensive than leather which is a plus. However, cleaning must be followed by manufactures instructions. With such material though, most times it’s best to blot stains out of the couch with just soap and water. However, they do come out relatively easy. Micro Fiber material isn’t as good as with the hair situation but it isn’t a magnet for it. These couches also come in many assorted colors to match the style of your home.
