How to Protect Your Hardwood Floors With Felt Pads Floors are a major investment. You probably spent lots of time choosing the right floor material for your room and choosing the perfect color. Then you spent lots of time as well as money installing it. You want the floor to maintain its beauty and last long. However, you’ll have to put your furniture back. Therefore, how do you protect your floor from dents and scuffs caused by furniture? Put simply, how do you shield your hardwood floor from items like couches, chairs, tables, etc? Here is how to protect the hardwood floors of your home. Hardwood flooring can make a room inviting. However, they’re highly prone to dulling, scratches and dents. Yet they’re installed in dining rooms, kitchens and living rooms–all rooms with plenty of furniture. There are several options for protecting hardwood floors. For furniture that won’t be moved a great deal, like bookshelves and cabinets, a good option would be tap-on pads. In case you need to move such large pieces, you may place towels below to enable them slide easily. If you have to move chairs, go for adhesive felt pads that will allow items to slide easily.

Buy felt pads and fit them on your furniture. You can choose either tap-in or self-adhesive ones, and the thicknesses and sizes that best suit your needs. Felt furniture pads come in a wide range of thicknesses and sizes. If your furniture is heavier, choose a thicker felt pad and even huge uncut self-adhesive square felt pads so you can cut the best shape for customizing furniture bottoms with odd shapes. Lay the furniture piece on one side and clean up where you’ll be using the felt pad, like the bottom of a chair’s leg, using a dry rag. You should use some water and soap to clean that area in case there’s any build up. This will result in a smooth, clean surface that your felt pad will stick to. On the adhesive back of the felt pad, peel the paper off and firmly press it onto the bottom of the piece of furniture and hold for around ten seconds to get a tight seal. Or, if you’re using a tap-in felt pad, gently tap the pad onto the furniture’s leg with a hammer. Repeat this for each furniture piece. After every few months, have a look at the felt pads to ensure they’re still sticking tightly to the bottom of your furniture. When the pads wear down or come off completely, replace them. For long-term protection, pick tap-in felt pads over self-adhesive pads because they often last longer than adhesive pads.
