Limit The Wear and Tear on Your Home With Aqua Step
We all love our furry companions, but they sure can create a mess. Whether you have a puppy who hasn’t quite yet learned how to use the bathroom outside, a grown dog who just loves playing in the mud then tracking it inside, or a cat who hasn’t quite yet mastered drying off her paws before trekking through the kitchen, Aqua Step can help you better contend with their mess.
The Financial Impact of Pet Ownership
Aqua Step is 100% waterproof, but it’s also built to be durable. Pets can contribute to the wear and tear on your home, and they do spend a lot of time tromping around your floors. Dogs, in particular, can have a financial impact on your home, especially if you don’t have materials that can stand up to their activity. In this article from money.com, they discuss how dog ownership alone can drop the appraisal of a home’s value by as much as 5%. Then consider how much it can cost to replace carpeting if a dog repeatedly has accidents on it – that’s an investment you don’t want to have to make over and over again.
With Aqua Step, you don’t have to panic every time your pet has an accident in the house. Sure, it’s still not pleasant, but it’s a lot easier to clean up than carpet is. And, unlike other flooring products, you don’t have to use special cleaners on it. You can use just soap and water – saving you money on special cleaning products, as well.
One of the worst parts of pet accidents can be how it permeates beneath the flooring surface. This can be smelly and it can be expensive when it comes time to deal with it and any associated problems the moisture may have caused. Aqua Step, however, is designed with a rubber gasket that prevents this kind of seepage. As a result, your pet’s mess stays on the surface – where it might not look or smell too pleasant, but at least you know when you clean it up you’ve got it all, and it won’t become a long-term issue.
How Aqua Step Stands Up To Other Pet Damage
While being 100% waterproof is the keystone of Aqua Step’s design, it has other qualities that make it an attractive choice for homes where pets are part of the family.
With Aqua Step, you don’t have to grimace every time you hear the clack-clack of your dog’s claws on the floor. Aqua Step has a high level of scratch-resistance, and it can stand up to the most active dogs and cats.
The core of Aqua Step is made with a high-quality synthetic resin and is designed to withstand heavy loads. As a result, even the biggest dogs are no match for Aqua Step’s strength. So let your St. Bernard run free across your newly installed Aqua Step floor – he’ll have fun, and you can breathe a little easier while you watch him romp around.
And all that romping? Aqua Step’s design also helps with sound absorption. Fluffy’s playtime won’t be quite so audible to people on the floors below.
