A beautiful hardwood floor can transform a room, add value to your property and when properly cared for – can be enjoyed for decades.
But here’s the thing, everyday wear and tear is inevitable. Whether it’s installed in your home, office or commercial space – hardwood floors are susceptible to a number of threats. Moisture, dirt and heavy furniture are just a few things that can damage your floors.
The good news is, there’s plenty of measures you can take to ensure your hardwood floors remain in perfect condition…
Outside dirt and debris tracked in by shoes can lead to scratches. If you can’t commit to a completely shoe-free zone, place doormats at entrances to encourage guests to wipe their feet thus preventing debris from causing any damage.
Not only are rugs a stylish accessory to any room, they’re great for protecting your floors from heavy foot traffic and furniture scuffs and scratches. To prevent slips, keep your rugs in place using an underlay made with natural fabrics. Avoid the use of double-sided tape which can leave a sticky residue or materials such as latex or synthetic rubber which can cause discoloration.
