What to look for in fabric when you buy it?

Most of us have been in a situation where our dog has scratched at our bedding or left an unpleasant odor behind that we feel majorly annoyed by. Here are a couple of things you should look for in fabrics while shopping- especially considering how we're usually around our pets nowadays. 

1. Make sure it's durable

To make your furniture last longer, buy a fabric that is hardwearing and has a high resistance. This will make it harder for your pets to landmarks on your bedding or your sofa. However, to make sure that the fabric you're buying is truly durable, make sure to check the rub count. A rub count of over 20,000 is ideal for a pet or a dog owner because this prevents any damage to the material. 

2. Check if it can be cleaned easily 

Even if your pet does end up making a mess, having a pet friendly fabric that can be cleaned in a couple of seconds will make you feel less annoyed. Get a fabric with a smooth surface so that it's easier to wipe those pet hairs and mud stains off. Fabrics with a tight flatweave are much better at keeping hair out, unlike thick fibers. Sleep zone is one of the many companies that provide you with this feature.  EASY TO CLEAN - Machine washable, confidently throw it in the washer and dryer for cleaning without ruining the soft fabric. You can machine wash these sheets which is essential for pet owners, and of course, it's important that you can use the dryer for removing even the last hairs as well.

3. If it contains a moisture barrier, you're good to go

Tired of cleaning up your dog's mess and don't know what to do about it? Get a fabric with a moisture barrier or a coating included in it. These barriers prevent any liquid from getting absorbed into it and will also stop it from smelling bad throughout the day. At Sleep Zone, we take all of this into account. Here is one mattress pad that has a moisture barrier present in it to help you with your struggles. " A little trick in the interior-design industry is to avoid natural materials when designing ped- and kid- firendly homes" says Devin Shaffer, lead interior designer at Decorilla.

Types of pet friendly fabrics that can be used 

A couple of pet friendly fabrics and their properties have been outlined below. 

1. Leather 

A wipe-clean fabric, leather has been proven to be one of the best when it comes to your pet. This is because it is very easy to wipe stains and spills off of leather. It also does not attract pet hair, and even if a couple of strands do get on it, it's very easy to vacuum off. 

2. Microfiber 

This synthetic material is a godsend to anyone who owns a pet- especially a dog. It is known for its durability and stain-resistant properties. It has an extremely tight weave meaning that it's very easy to clean and keep secure. Although natural fibers such as wool are durable and resilient, they do absorb stains more quickly than man-made fabrics. Just using a lint brush should be enough to deal with pet hair on it. This quilted NanoTex mattress pad from Sleep Zone will work best for you if you're looking for a fabric made of synthetic material. Pus, it's machine washable.

3. Velvet

Another great fabric to use is velvet. Not only is it associated with luxury and will make your house look extremely pleasing, but it also does not wear and tear easily. Since it has short fibers, it is soft and scratch-resistant.  Add some concentrate to the rinse cycle of your washing machine to help eliminate these odors for good.
