Normally around this time of year we warn you about salt from gritting icy roads etc effecting your floor and how best to protect it. Well, for Christmas 2018 we might even have a Spring feeling in the air!
Nonetheless, there is a good chance for rain during the festive season, so....
In our latest newsletter we already mentioned that wooden floors benefit from extra TLC. 'Pampering' your floor by applying a maintenance product every 5 to 6 months will keep the wood protected against dirt and drips and enhance its beauty. Special care is recommended when it rains all day and you want to take an after diner stroll. Not all entrance mats 'wipe' the bottom of your shoes completely dry.
To prevent the rain spoils effecting the wooden floor there are a few simple things you can do:
- Leave shoes on the mat (or kick off your shoes on the mat and store them in a shoe cupboard - if you have such a novel item - or area that is tiled. To prevent the tiles coming dirty or smutched, put an old newspaper on the floor first).
- Leave shoes in the porch and have slippers at the ready - warmed-up slippers is really a nice treat after a walk in wet weather.
- Wipe wet-shoe prints dry the moment you notice them so the moist doesn't get a change to effect the wood.
- Make sure your wooden floor receives its extra TLC.
And of course: have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
