Don't Let that Christmas Tree Ruin your Hardwood Floor!

Posted on December 16th, 2014 by slaughterbeckHW

Christmas trees can damage your hardwood floor with scratches, sap stains and water spots. Follow these handy tips to make sure you don't have to hire Slaughterbeck Floors to sand and refinish your whole floor for the New Year!

- Before bringing the tree into your home shake it, gently, to help get rid of some of the loose needles that could be stepped on causing scratching.

- You may drag the tree on an upside down bathmat rather than carry the tree to minimize needles dropping on your floors.

- On the tree's location : put down an old folded sheet or blanket first to protect the floor. Then put plastic (such as a cheap plastic tablecloth) over the old sheet/blanket to protect from water damage. Finally, put the Christmas tree stand on top of the plastic.
