Your Cheat Sheet for Protecting Your Karndean Floors

By On October 18, 2016 No Comments

Karndean floors are exceptional for their replication of natural materials. This, combined with the fact that they are incredibly hard-wearing and durable means that they can be fitted in many areas of a home or business.

It is really important that you seek the assistance of a professional Karndean fitter if you are looking to install this flooring type. It is vitally important that the floor is laid correctly as any mistakes will likely be challenging to rectify and may cause problems further down the line.

Once your floor is down it will experience many factors that work to deteriorate the surface. This includes:

  • Direct sunlight
  • Abrasive materials
  • Children playing
  • Animal claws

Being part of a busy home is inevitable. An understanding of the following information will leave you best-equipped to deal with the daily onslaught.

Karndean Floors – Do…

  • Use protective pads underneath any furniture legs as these will work to prevent scratching when this furniture is moved.
  • Remove all spills as quickly as possible as any liquid left on the surface for any longer period of time will likely cause marking.
  • Place matting at all external entryways of your home as these will capture particles that would otherwise be carried into your property.

  • Don’t move furniture or heavy items by dragging them; this will cause scratches and even possible indentations of items are dropped.
