Be sure your chair legs and other pieces of furniture all have floor protectors on them. Without protection, constant sliding and movement will prematurely wear and scratch your floor.
Know your Floor
Remember what products were used to finish and clean your wood floor. Keep track of the dates (month and year) the floor was installed, finished, refinished and/or repaired.
Hardwood floors are easy to take care of.
- Make sure to have felt pads under all the legs of your furniture. We have seen that the self-sticky felts tend to pull off and wear faster. The best felt pads are the tap-in type.
- Have good door mats placed at entrances into your home. Dirt and grime wear the finish off hardwood floors. It’s like walking around with sand paper on your shoes!
- Use only “Hardwood floor cleaner” for cleaning your floors. And only for deep cleaning otherwise use a dry dust mop for general cleaning. Water, oil soaps and chemicals are bad for your floor.
