Protecting Hardwood floors

Protecting Hardwood floors from furniture weight
With a proper cleaning and maintenance, your hardwood floors should retain their shape and luster for years to come. However, because wood is more easily damaged than linoleum or carpeting, you should be cautions in protecting hardwood floors from heavy objects such as furniture or other decorating materials.
     Properly cleaning and maintaining your hardwood floors will help them to retain their strength, reducing the potential for damage. Place no rubber  floor mats at entrances and move them while cleaning to let the hardwood "breathe." Keep floors clear of dust and debris by vacuuming regularly with the soft brush attachment. Refinish hardwood floors every four to five years, or however frequently flooring specialists recommend the service.

Protection from heavy objects such as furniture or decorating statues

Attach cork pads and felt padding to the bottom of all furniture legs. When moving furniture, place a barrier such as a sheet of thin plywood or felt between the furniture and the floor. Use a dolly when moving furniture.

Kitchen Floors Chicago

     Floors for your kitchen
   More than any other surface in your home, the kitchen floor takes all - spilled juice at the breakfast table, muddy paw prints from the pooch, even your children's spontaneous games of indoor hockey. That's why this high-traffic room needs a floor that can withstand ordinary wear. So you may wonder: Does a wood floor belong in the kitchen? Sure, as long as you're willing to wipe up spills and stick to a maintenance routine.
Types of wood
  Hardwoods, such as oak, maple, and cherry, are the most durable. Softwoods, such as pine, will dent -- even if treated with a penetrating finish. For a rustic kitchen, however, a distressed pine floor may be just the look you desire. As you compare wood species, also consider the grain. Oak, for instance, features a pronounced grain pattern that hides dirt and dents better than woods with subtle grains.

In general, wipe up spills immediately to prevent stains. Follow the flooring manufacturer's cleaning guidelines. To protect floors from wear and sand and grit damage, place rugs or floor maps at outside entrances and in front of the sink. And use protective tips (you can read about them on our blog ) and pads under furniture. In our store you will find a high quality hardwood floors cleaning materials so as mops as well.
