Despite being durable, wooden floors are vulnerable to damage due to daily activities. However, you don’t have to panic. Here are a few floor protection measures you can take to prevent wear on your wooden floor.

Use Rags and Mats

Placing rugs or mats at high traffic points such as entries prevents stones, debris and grit from making their way to your floor. Invest in a quality and durable mats such as the Sticky Tac Mat from Trio Plus to keep your office or home floor safe. Also, consider keeping shoes out of the room as they are the primary source of dirt and particles.

You should also set mats below furniture to prevent scratches and also trap dirt. When renovating, you can use the self-adhesive protection film form Trio Plus.

Protect the Floor From Furniture

While wooden floors blend well with furniture, they can cause scratches and dents, especially when being moved. Use felt pads on your furniture feet to prevent the scratches and also trap dirt and particles. These pads create a protective layer that prevents the rough edges of your furniture from scratching the floor. They also allow for dragging of furniture without damage to the floor. Sanding old or uneven furniture legs also keep your floor safe.

Clean Regularly

This is the basic yet one of the most effective floor maintenance practices. You can use a vacuum with hardwood floor attachment features to get rid of the dirt particles and grit that accumulates on the floor. A dust mop or broom and moist microfibre pad can also work like magic. However, avoid using wet mops as they can mess with the finishing. Even worse, wet mops can leak water into the wood, making it swell and eventually decay. Any spills on the floor should be wiped out immediately using a soft and dry cloth. Also avoid cleaners containing chemicals like Ammonia, vinegar, wax or polish that may mess your floor coating.
