Nothing compares to hardwood flooring when it comes to elegance and natural beauty. This means you want your hardwood flooring looking pristine.
There’s nothing more annoying than a giant scratch or chip in your hardwood floors, and many times those blemishes come from its counterpart: the furniture.
Take a look at the following tips on how to avoid damaging your hardwood floors when moving furniture.
There’s no better solution to moving furniture safely on hardwood flooring than furniture pads. Felt or cork pads are a great way to rearrange the furniture in your room, and it actually makes it easier to slide your furniture, rather than having to pick it up and move it.
It’s not only during times of moving that furniture can cause damage. When sitting down or standing, or even relaxing, furniture tends to move slightly. The littlest movement in the legs of a couch, recliner or table can scratch your hardwood floors.
By simply placing an area rug under the legs, this can prevent scratching.
Whether you’re moving new furniture into your home or simply rearranging your furniture, this is when most damage to hardwood floors occur. By taking your time and having a plan before moving your furniture, you will limit the chances of damaging your floor. Also, be sure to never drag your furniture unless using furniture pads.
If you follow these simple steps, you are sure to increase the longevity of your hardwood floors.
