How to protect your laminate wood flooring, that you can get from Irwin Tiles, from your furniture is one of the questions many homeowners ponder when moving into a new home. A big part of protecting it in your home is making sure you keep your floors clean, dust free, and free of debris. In addition to cleaning your floors regularly, another simple way of protecting your laminate wood flooring from your furniture is by never placing any kind of glues, tackers, or any other type of fasteners on it. The glue and the tackers can potentially damage the finish on your floor and can even cause the wood to warp over time.
One of the best ways of protecting your laminate wood flooring from your furniture is to make sure you have your floors vacuumed often. There is a right way and a wrong way to do this depending on what kind of floor you have. For hardwood floors, you should use a vacuum that has a beater bar on the back. This will work better for heavier particles and dirt so you don’t sweep your floor in the wrong way and risk the wood coming out in places you don’t want it to go. If you have carpet flooring, then you may need to purchase a vacuum with a brush attachment or something similar to allow you to effectively clean your floors.
You will also want to make sure that you use foot coverings on your furniture to stop the floor from being scratched when you move the furniture and prevent it from denting the floor over time.
