No matter what type of flooring you have in your home, furniture can damage it if you don’t take the proper precautions. It can happen from moving large items, scooting chairs or sofas when sitting down, or even just by having furniture consistently sitting in the same place. At Quest Interiors we know our flooring and understand the importance of the investment made. To assist with being proactive, we are sharing some much needed tips to help keep your furniture from ruining those gorgeous floors!
Invest in an Area RugWhile area rugs can be pricey, they are well worth their investment to keep your floor damage-free. By placing furniture on top of the area rug, you can prevent your furniture from having contact with the floor and from moving around, causing scratches.
Go With Furniture PadsA great alternative to a rug is to get furniture pads to go on the feet of all furniture legs. These pads are a felt-like material that, if installed properly, can prevent scratches from furniture moving around. If you do use furniture pads though, make sure to check these every so often. You may find an instance where they stop sticking and fall off or they get moved over time.
Always Pick Up Your FurnitureThe best tip that we can give you is to make sure you always pick up your furniture to move it. This guarantees that you will not scratch your flooring due to pushing or dragging chairs or tables around a room.
