Four Ways to Protect Your Hardwood Floors During the Holidays

Four Ways to Protect Your Hardwood Floors During the Holidays

The Holidays will be here before you know it. If you are planning a celebration in your home and want to be sure to protect your floors, we have a few helpful tips for you.

Your best option is to be prepared and prevent damage in the first place. For instance, if you will have plants or a tree in your home, be sure that there is a pan or bucket beneath it to prevent from scratching, dirt, or water damage.

It’s also imperative to prevent indentations that may occur with moving your furniture. Using felt pads beneath the legs of sofas, tables and chairs is a great way to protect your floors during decoration time.

Consider cleaning your floors both prior to the holidays as well as afterward. This way the mess becomes manageable after the party, and you end up having to clean less than you thought you would. It also ensures that your floors are always in the best condition.

Even though you may be tempted to mop your hardwood floors after a spill, don’t resort to that right away. You may risk dulling the shine. A better choice is to clean it up with a paper towel or if necessary, use a hardwood floor cleaner that won’t damage your floors.
