There’s nothing more frustrating than installing a beautiful, new Oak floor, only to discover that it’s become damaged either by accident or through general wear and tear. So what can you do to protect your wood floor from every day wear and tear?
Here are our Top Tips:
• Doormats. Investing in quality UK Wood Floor Coir Matwell is a great way of preventing scuffs, scratches and general wear and tear on your floor. If you can, aim to have a doormat that is long, so that even if people don’t stop to wipe their feet, the natural act of walking across the mat will lift off a good amount of the remaining debris that can play havoc with your floor.
• Pets. Pets can play havoc with wood flooring if they’re not managed properly. Making sure your pet’s claws are regularly clipped and that they’re dried off before coming into the home are two simple steps that will keep your wood floor protected on a day-to-day basis. Beyond that, making sure that any little “accidents” are cleaned up promptly will help prevent the risk of deep down stains.
• Floor protectors for furnishings. Any item of furniture in your home can seriously damage your flooring. Ensure you protect your floor by using felt pads. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your need.
• Ongoing maintenance. One of the huge attractions of wood flooring is how easy it is to maintain. All you need to do is make sure you follow the correct procedure. Check out our Cleaning tips
