With so many Christmas activities to choose from, it’s easy to get caught up in the festive spirit. While the holiday season may bring joy and cheer, it may also bring a greater risk of damage to your floor. Having a brand-new floor in your house makes the situation even more difficult.
Over the holidays, you may receive visits from friends and family, which is always a treat! However, having more people in your home means your floor will be subjected to additional traffic, damage, and exposure to the outdoors.
To keep your floors clean this holiday season, there’s no need to postpone anything. Dustless tile removal and skilled tile installation are Kodiak’s specialties. Here are some suggestions for having a good time during the holidays while also protecting your carpets.
Ensure That Your Furniture Has Floor Protection
If you’re hosting Christmas dinner or a holiday get-together, your guests will almost certainly need to move seats. You may even need to rearrange furnishings to accommodate your guests’ demands.
If you have hardwood or tile flooring, make sure that it doesn’t scratch the floor beneath when you move and rearrange your furniture.
Protect your flooring by adding protective felt pads to the foot of your chairs, couches, tables, and barstools, especially if you have hardwood floors. Furthermore, these felt pads offer year-round protection!
Clean Hard Flooring Before and After Guests Leave
It should go without saying that you should clean your area before any visitors arrive, but you should also clean as soon as they depart.
Vacuuming up any dirt or debris reduces the danger of it causing further damage. If trodden on or moved around, dirt that has accumulated over time can endanger the surface of your flooring. After your guests have left, sweep or vacuum to avoid repeat problems.
Doormats and Rugs Can Protect Tile and Wood Floors
Offer festive doormats and rugs to your space while decorating for Christmas to add holiday flair as well as an extra layer of protection. A holiday-themed doormat placed at your entrance will remind visitors to remove their shoes before entering.
You can also provide an internal mat or rug for guests to remove their shoes so that dirt is not tracked around your property.
Rugs placed throughout your home will help to reduce the amount of damage to your flooring. A dropped plate, high heels, or a strewn ornament are all possibilities during the Christmas season. Rugs are a fantastic way to preserve the floors throughout your home.
Inspect Flooring After the Holidays with Kodiak Tile and Stone
Finally, as the holiday season draws to a close, it’s a good idea to inspect your flooring. Did your carpet survive the New Year’s Eve champagne spill?
Did your tile floor survive your frequent cooking or holiday gatherings? If your floor looks fantastic, that’s fantastic.
If not, don’t worry. After the holidays are over, you have alternatives for dealing with damaged flooring.
If your flooring is beginning to show signs of wear and tear, it may be time to replace it. Alternatively, you may not have been as proactive as you’d like, resulting in additional damage to your floor this holiday season.
