Self Assess Your Own Floors
We all use main foot traffic pathways in our home. Every home and situation is different and only you will know those routes the best. Within 90+ percent of homes found with pre-mature excessive polished wooden floor wear, the dining table area is generally the culpable party.
Dining chairs are the most moved items of furniture in the home and, if shielding felt protective pads are not present under furniture legs, then disaster will follow.
Where to Look
The main front and rear entrances to the home
This is the first contact point where dust and grit enters your home.
The triangular work zone in the kitchen
This area is where you spend a lot of time in three particular work zones.
The centre pathway down the hall
The foot traffic main highway to other rooms of your home.
The centre of the polished timber stair treads
A semi-circular portion of the top surface of the stair tread which takes the brunt of the wear.
Under/around the dining table
Dinning chairs are the biggest problem if not fitted with correct felt pads.
Other traffic trails
Only you will know in your home depending on your floor plan setup.
Kitchen Chair Legs are the Killers!
What to Look For
Lower yourself to the floor a little, and try to catch reflected natural daylight on the floor surface to determine if sheen level variations are present, fine scratching or scuffing can be detected, along with colour fading or discolouration.
