Felt pads for hardwood floors are useful to protect the floor from scratches that come from your furniture. As we all know, dust and your pet’s paw can cause damage to the floor’s surface. However, unprotected furniture can also cause gouges to your hardwood floor, especially if it’s heavy furniture. That is the main reason why you need felt pads to make sure that your furniture and chair legs is more floor friendly.
There are many protections you can use for your hardwood floors. You can buy it on store or just make one on your own. There are tap-on pads, self-adhesive pads, and slip-on pads. Out of all three, self-adhesive pads are the least expensive and least durable. Felt pads for hardwood floors can be categorized into this type of protection. They are usually made out of rubber which make them the cheapest among other options.
Usually, felt pads come in different thickness and sizes, you can adjust them with the furniture you have. If it’s heavier, make sure that you also choose thicker pads. If you don’t want store-bough pads, you can make felt pads by yourself. Purchase a thick felt and cut it into the size you need for your furniture, and you will have your own felt pads for hardwood floors.
