Exciting Methods for Protecting Hardwood Floors from Furniture Leg Scratching

After investing in hardwood floors, you expect that the beauty and functionality of the surface will last a while. That, however, is usually not the case because it is necessary to move your furniture from one spot to the next due to one reason or the other. It is necessary to protect your hardwood floor in one of the ways that are highlighted next to retain its aesthetics and function.

For furniture that is not supposed to move, the task of protecting the floor beneath it is not tough because you can place construction paper or business cards under all the legs. This method will prevent your hardwood floor from scratches but your furniture will move about from time to time. Some of the other materials that can be used to protect your floor when placed beneath furniture legs include old carpets, leather pieces, tennis balls, old towels, and industrial grade Velcro.

The most damage to hardwood floors originates from furniture that needs to be moved from one point to the other on frequent occasions. In such cases, you need to attach wheels to their legs to aid in their movement while keeping your hardwood floors from getting scratches. You need to clean such wheels occasionally because the collected debris can leave marks on your hardwood floors. The choice of wheels has to be appropriate also because the wrong selection can also result in a damaged wooden floor.

Protecing hardwood floors from furniture leg scratching can be done if you use area rugs as they will come between the two surfaces. Also, the rugs will keep your floors from getting damaged by the sun’s rays and spilled liquids. If properly used, an area rug looks amazing on a hardwood floor.

Another excellent way to protect hardwood floors from leg scratching is by investing in furniture leg protectors that you can in online and brick and mortar stores. You will come across many types of furniture pads during your search for a furniture floor protector. Top materials that are used for such purposes include Teflon, felt, and plastic. A felt pad is ideal for each furniture leg because grit and sand will attach themselves easily to the other materials and cause damage to your floors. Your floor is safe with felt pads because of the softness of the material, which will ensure that no damage will result.

Floor protectors for furniture legs are affordable options because they are cheaper than replacing or repairing your costly hardwood floor. It is imperative that you check your furniture floor protector frequently so as to ensure that it is still working as intended. Keep in mind that the presence of dirt and grit will not keep your hardwood floor from getting damaged even in the presence of a furniture floor protector.
