FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Can I Stop Furniture From Scratching Hardwood?
Unfortunately, the reality is that anything heavy that’s moved across the floor has a chance to damage it. This is especially true of furniture with metal legs or sharp edges. The simplest way to protect your hardwood floor from furniture is to apply felt chair glides on the underside of the legs. Not only will this create a soft surface to prevent crushing, damage, and scratching, but it also makes furniture easier to maneuver for redecorating or cleaning. When moving heavy furniture in or out, you should move it over sheets of plywood.
Is Refinished Wood or Job-Site-Finished Wood Better For New Floors?
As with most things, the answer depends on your particular situation and needs. As long as the prefinished wood flooring you purchase is of a high quality, prefinished wood has a number of advantages. These materials are finished with particles to create a surface that’s wear resistant just like a flooring that’s finished on the job site is. The benefit is that you don’t have to wait for the finish to dry before travelling on the floor. On the other hand, finishing the floor on site gives you more choice, better value, and generally looks better. Job site finished floors are also easier to repair.
Will A Dog Ruin Hardwood Floors?
Dogs are our best friends, but they aren’t always good for floors. This is especially true for large dogs that are active. They usually have to dig in with their nails to get traction on a floor, which can scratch the surface of the hardwood. However, most dogs will do limited damage to a floor that’s been finished properly. This is because pets usually aren’t comfortable with the lack of traction their paws have on hardwood and are less likely to make sudden moves that scratch a floor. In the cases that they do, the wear is similar to other sources of damage like debris or furniture. The acidity in pet urine will damage the finish on the wood though.
