"As you will be having a pet in your house you will need a highly durable carpet like the wool carpets, avoid using synthetic carpets, you may also check the wool carpet manufacturers online."

Hey Hank, As a Woodguard user for a long time, I intend to use the Q8 on my next project. It's less harmful to the air and the clean up and penetration is better.  Jim and Pam Katahdin Cedar Log Homes
