Well, another year has flown by and once again the holidays are rapidly approaching, leaving so many things for most people to do and so little time to do it. And along with the holiday season comes numerous other considerations about everything that goes with this time of the year. Family gatherings, decorating, and sometimes large presents such as full-length mirrors, bookshelves, and vanity tables can all be a part of the season.
But what a lot of folks don’t always think about is the damage that can be done to the floors in their home with all of this activity. That’s why we wanted to offer up this simple list of 9 things that you can do to help minimize damage or scratching to your hardwood flooring when rearranging furniture or inviting scores of guests in and out of your home over the next few months:
1. Regular Cleaning
2. Use Door Mats
3. Keep Pet Nails Trimmed
4. Use Rugs in Common Areas
5. Use Felt Pads for Furniture
6. Take Off Shoes
7. Waterproof Tree Stand
8. Use a Boot Tray
9. Use Protective Coating on Wood and Tile
We thought these tips might help our friends and neighbors to keep their floors in the best shape possible going into the New Year. Nothing hangs over a person’s head more than having a lingering home improvement project waiting for them right after the holidays.
