The last thing that a dog owner needs to worry about is urine stains. As mentioned before, vigilance with spilled liquids becomes the number one priority with a hardwood floor. If a dog manages to ”sneak” a urine puddle past you, this can be extremely detrimental to the hardwood floor. The detriment is twofold. The first aspect of a dog's urine stain is that a long-term stain is going to smell. Wood is porous and will absorb the urine deeply into itself. The second is that the stain will be dark, sometimes black. If your hardwood is darker in color, then this won't be such a problem. But if your hardwood floor is light in color, there will be a dark stain on your floor. There are many different products available for this kind of issue. If the floor is really light, drops of hydrogen peroxide left overnight are great stain lifters. But this isn't a solution that should be applied to darker hardwood floors. In short, you'll have to pay even closer attention to your dog's comings and goings. Sometimes those rugs and mats that you have left around high traffic areas are housing liquid (possibly even urine), and it is good to be vigilant about checking them. The fact of the matter is that maintaining a hardwood floor with a dog is a lot of work. You will have to pay close attention to your dog's comings and goings as well as his nail length and whether or not he needs to be groomed. You will also need to stay vigilant with sweeping, mopping and vacuuming. The floor will definitely take some damage as a result of your dog, but it will also take damage as a result of you too. Hardwood floors can be maintained with a dog in the household, but there needs to be a deeper consideration of the potential damage a dog can bring.
