Affect of Dog Urine Accidents on Cork Flooring

Previous Next
 
I am pondering cork flooring for my large kitchen. My problem is that I have six dogs (all old timers) who are not having overnight accidents now but no doubt will have in the next while. Should I retire upstairs at ten pm for instance and am not in the kitchen until eight am - if a dog has an accident at 10:05 and this sits on the floor all night what can happen. If not cork for dogs and accidents, what would you recommend?

Answer:
Probably your best choice would be vinyl, as it creates somewhat of a barrier. Anything else would be porous and absorb the accident. Hope this helps with your decision.
