When you are planning to install wooden flooring in your home or commercial property, it is worth doing some research on the best choice of flooring for you and the style you want to proceed with. With everything from vinyl floors to real hardwood flooring on offer, the team at The Wooden Floor Company are on hand to assist you in finding the right fit for your floor.
As well as what they look like, the other things that are important when it comes to flooring is their longevity, durability and safety in day-to-day life. Fortunately, we ensure all of our wooden floors come with slip-resistant qualities. Although they are specially designed to maximise grip, there are also some things you can do to keep them fall-free. Here’s how:
Wooden flooring doesn’t like excess moisture in the form of spills, rainwater or condensation. Water can be slippery when combined with smooth surfaces. To reduce moisture in your home you should allow your floors to air dry thoroughly after mopping, clean up any spilt liquid immediately and keep windows shut during rainy times.
Adding door mats inside or outside your doors will give you a place to dry and clean the soles of your shoes before entering the house. This will prevent your shoes from slipping on our stylish hardwood floors, as well as keep them clean. A multi-use addition to your home.
Dust, dirt and debris on your floors put a layer between your footstep and the wood. Although unlikely, that can create a slippery outcome. Mopping once per month and hoovering when necessary will keep your floors safer, cleaner and better looking for longer.
Although you’ll likely want to show off your newly installed wooden floors throughout your home, adding a rug can provide a warm and stylish touch to certain rooms. Rugs themselves can provide a slip-zone, so make sure your rug is heavy and firmly place on the floor.
So those are the ways to be even more cautious if you wish to be. Take a look at our range of engineered wood floors, made with high-quality products for stylish homes. Their slip-resistant qualities and durable nature mean they will stand your home in good stead for years to come and quickly transform your home into a cosy, warm place to live.
