Any kennel owner or veterinary clinician is aware that animals are “floor intensive.” Flooring will take a beating from constant animal traffic, contact of animal claws and nails, along with urine, waste and other animal fluids. Clean and good-looking kennel floors are an important factor in customer relations, as they can help create a sense of confidence in the quality of the kennel operation thus putting pet owners at ease, knowing their family pet is in good hands.
When considering available flooring solutions for kennels, be it for dogs or cats, it’s important that these floors have the following characteristics:
Choosing the right flooring solution for a busy kennel is an important facility choice both for the health of its tenants as well as the kennel’s profitability and daily operations.
Due to the special needs in caring for animals, flooring systems for kennels have to be especially designed to provide the best conditions for animals, staff and frequent visitors. To maintain a hygienic environment, floors at these facilities should be free of seams and grout lines and any irregularities that pose a risk of harboring bacteria or animal waste odors. If the floor is permeable and allows for the absorption of fluids or if it exhibits crevasses and conditions where bacteria and other pathogens can flourish, animals’ health can be severely impacted. That is why a seamless flooring system is ideal for kennel applications.
