How to Prevent Scuff Marks on Your Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are certainly beautiful, but they're also quite easy to scuff. And while scuff marks are not as grave as scratches or nicks, they put a blemish on your gorgeous flooring. Did you know that you can actually prevent scuff marks on your hardwood floors? Here's how:

Ask family members and visitors to take off their shoes. It might sound tedious, but the first step in preventing scuff marks is getting people to keep their shoes off. Doing so will ensure that sneakers, high heels and boots never get near to your stunning hardwood flooring.

Cover high-traffic areas with rugs. Area rugs come in handy when it comes to preventing scuff marks on your hardwood floors. They're small enough that they don't conceal the natural beauty of the wood flooring, and can protect high-traffic areas in your home. Plus, they can accentuate your decor!

Attach felt protector pads to the bottom of furniture. If it's your furniture that's causing scuff marks on your floors, then look for floor protectors. According to the World Floor Covering Association, there are many different types to consider:
  • Self-adhesive felt pad 
  • Formed-felt pads
  • Tap-in felt glides
  • Rubber & Teflon-like grippers
  • Stick-on & screw-on foot protectors
  • And more!
Following these steps should prevent scuff marks on your hardwood floors. If your floors are scuffed, scratched or dented beyond repair, contact Superior Windowland at (203) 948-7770.
