Top 5 Culprits for Damage to Floors

Flooring can be damaged due to multiple causes no matter what type of flooring is installed. Dents, cracks and scratches are common sources of damage, but it will largely depend on the type of flooring that’s installed that will determine how much damage is sustained.

Heavy Furniture

Scraping and moving heavy furniture across floors will damage them. The severity and extent of the damage will depend on the nature of the type of flooring that’s installed. Flooring is also susceptible to scratching from vacuum brushes that scrape across small bits of rock and other substances that enter on shoes.

Water

Whether it’s from a broken pipe, leaky appliance or full-fledged flood from storms, water is not a friend to flooring. Even flooring that’s resistant to moisture can become saturated, resulting in swelling, cracking and the growth of bacteria, viruses and mold.

Pets

Nursery flooringIt’s essential that pets have their claws trimmed to prevent damage to flooring. The majority of flooring will develop scratches not only from pet claws, but the sand, dirt and debris that also enters under their claws. It’s also important to know that at some point, every pet will have an accident that can leave stains and odors.

Footwear

Few people think about their footwear when they consider damage to their flooring. High heels and other types of footwear that focuses extra pressure against flooring can dent it.

Harsh Cleaners

Perhaps one of the most common types of damage sustained by floors is the use of harsh cleaners and inappropriate cleaning methods. Abrasive cleaners can scratch floors and over time, it will dull the finish. There are some types of chemicals that should never be used on flooring. Use a cleaning agent designed for the type of flooring. Stay away from home remedies and concoctions that can be highly detrimental to flooring surfaces.
