I am considering this plank flooring for a room with a skylight. The skylight is sort of frosted, so there aren't full on direct rays of light, it's more muted/diffused. Would that be ok?

Also, I feed my dogs in this room so sometimes they slop their water bowls or have occasional accidents. Does the planking hold up to animals well?

Thank you for your interest in TrafficMaster Allure Plus resilient vinyl plank flooring in Hamilton Oak. To keep your floor looking its best, dust mop or vacuum (hard surface vacuum attachment) your
floor at least twice a week. Do it more often on floors with heavy traffic. Do not use a household
dust cleaner of any kind as this may cause the floor to become slick or damage the finish. Simply
sweep the floor as often as needed. Do NOT use a steam cleaner on allure flooring
as it may result in permanent damage to your floor and will void the warranty. If using a Swiffer®, use only the sweeper. Using any kind of wet Swiffer® can leave a residue on allure. We recommend Armstrong Once 'N Done cleaner.

Thank you for your interest in the TrafficMaster Allure Plus Resilient Vinyl Plank flooring in Vintage Maple White. As with most vinyl floors, keeping your pets nails trimmed is the best way to protect your flooring against scratches. Use only allure Single Step for heavy wear when you have experienced some loss of the original appearance over time. Your TrafficMASTER allure floor has been designed to be very easy to maintain, but you may prefer to add an occasional coat of the allure Single Step to renew and protect your floor. This product is available from homedepot.com.

hello David,
Yes this can be installed over radiant heated floors but the temperature can not exceed 85F degrees.

Electric and Hydro systems are acceptable. Subfloors
should have been operational for at least one
week prior to installation to calibrate temperature
settings. The temperature should never exceed
85F (30C) during and after installation. Radiant
components must be a minimum of ½" below
allure flooring.
