2. THEN STEP TWO IS PROTECT YOU FLOOR FROM INSIDE, HERE IS HOW.

Before placing furniture back on a brand new wood floor, get the right pads and install them underneath each and every piece of furniture. The RIGHT pads will prevent furniture from scratching floors and make your heavy furniture more manageable. This will prevent unnecessary repair costs for the future. Drive these in the footing of all wooden peg chairs or furniture footings made of wood. If your furniture or chairs have existing plastic pegs, make sure that the felt sticky pads stick to the surface of existing furniture pads. If your not sure, remove the existing ones and replace them with these. The nail will drive in the footing of chairs or sofas, and the sticky felt pads stick to the white plastic caps.

The secret is the felt pads NOT the white plastic cap.

We Proudly Recommend

Hardwood flooring can be installed either two ways. The right way or the wrong way. We take great pride and love what we do. There are many wood flooring contractors in Austin, Texas. You can hire us to do a wood floor installation, or you can hire another contractor. Before you decide to hire a contractor, there are a few things that you should consider and look out for when hiring out a flooring contractor.

  • Be sure that your contractor is insured both on his business and vehicle.
  • Make sure that your contractor has a knowledge on the difference in between a concrete slab and a wooden sub-floor. Concrete slabs and wooden sub-flooring get treated differently both in leveling and installation.
  • Your contractor should have a moisture meter and check both your concrete slab and the wood flooring materials before performing a wood floor installation. So before performing an installation, check for moisture levels. Here are the main rules with moisture and their levels in relation to the sub-flooring and materials.
  • Moisture levels should be within 4% percent with in of each other. So if your concrete moisture levels are 6% (which is about normal), your wood floor should not have 1% moisture or an 11% moisture level because this would make it 1% over the 4% rule.It your wood floor is not with in 4% moisture levels from with in each other, whether it be concrete or installing over a wooden sub-floor, acclimation is still required and installation should be delayed until the moisture levels are compatible to each other.
