Hardwood floors are a gorgeous feature in any home. Whenever you have pets, however, they create keeping your hardwood flooring looking their best a challenge. In The Isleworth Floor Sanding Companywe put in and refinish hardwood floors for many people with pets, from Dachshunds into Dalmatians. The good news is that you can make some choices that will help you keep your floor looking good. Listed below are a few hardwood flooring refinishing tips you can follow to keep your floors looking their best:
Deciding on a lighter stain will help to hide any minor damage your pet may cause. Additionally, it hides the dust and dirt they are inclined to bring in from their outings more efficiently. You may also look at getting a shade that’s somewhat close to your puppy’s fur to help conceal that too!
Avoid Glossy Finishes
Even though a glossy finish could be temptingpet owners should steer clear. Satin or matte will conceal scratches or dings better and they look great. While most of us tend to believe the scratches from the floor are from our pets, you might be surprised to know we do just as much damage ourselves. High heels, pebbles stuck in the treads of tennis shoes, and moving furniture can lead to a great deal of the scratches and dents in the flooring. Picking satin or matte will keep your floors looking their best for a lot longer.
Trim Those Toenails
Maintaining your dog’s nails trimmed can go a long way toward protecting your floors. Dogs must have their claws trimmed after every one or two months. Use this simple rule of thumb — if they click when they walkit’s time to have it done. Additionally, putting mats facing doorways will also assist. The mats can collect dirt and tiny stones that would otherwise scratch your wood floors.
