Preserving Beauty: Safeguarding Engineered Hardwood Flooring From Heavy Furniture

Engineered hardwood flooring brings timeless elegance and durability to any space, but protecting it from heavy furniture is essential to maintain its beauty and longevity. At Bell Hardwood Floors, serving Ammon, ID, and the Jackson, WY area, we understand the importance of safeguarding your investment. Let's explore some tips for protecting your engineered hardwood floors from heavy furniture while preserving their natural allure.

Choosing the Right Furniture Pads


Furniture pads are your first line of defense against scratches, dents, and other damage caused by heavy furniture. Opt for felt or rubber pads that adhere securely to the legs of your furniture. These pads provide a cushioned barrier between the furniture and the hardwood floors, minimizing the risk of surface damage.

Lifting, Not Dragging


When moving heavy furniture, avoid dragging it across the hardwood floors, as this can cause scratches and gouges. Instead, enlist the help of a friend or use furniture sliders to lift the piece and gently glide it into position. Taking this extra precaution can prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your engineered hardwood floors.

Distributing Weight Evenly


Heavy furniture, such as sofas, beds, and cabinets, can exert considerable pressure on your hardwood floors, especially if the weight is concentrated on small contact points. To prevent indentations and divots, consider using furniture coasters or distributing the weight more evenly by placing furniture on larger area rugs or furniture pads.

Regular Maintenance and Inspection


Routine maintenance is key to preserving the beauty of your engineered hardwood floors. Regularly inspect your floors for signs of damage or wear, and address any issues promptly. Sweep or vacuum your floors regularly to remove dirt and debris that can scratch the surface, and use a manufacturer-recommended hardwood floor cleaner to keep them looking their best.
