How To Prevent Scratching Of Your Floor From Office Furniture?

13 May 2019Dylan Campbell

Hardwood floors are usually classy and improve the style of every office. Yet, they are susceptible to scratching while office chairs are being moved. Hardwood floors are cleaner but it is difficult to keep them unblemished because they get dented easily. One of the major culprits that can dent your floor is the office chair. This is because office chairs need to move when you are working on them.

Don’t drag office chairs

Moving any office furniture on any type of floor will damage the floor. Hardwood floors are more prone to scuffing and scratch from dragging of furniture of any type. Some of the notorious furniture that can cause damage to your floor with constant weight put on them and movement are office chairs. Because they are supposed to have lumbar support for a long time, the applied weight can lead to friction that damages your hardwood floor.

In addition, pushing and dragging of furniture on the floor during repair or workspace redesign are known to be the major causes of damages to hardwood floor. We do it unintentionally while pushing the furniture, particularly office chairs which are easier to lift than taking off the floor. It also needs an additional helping hand to move an office chair from a place to another. Usually, we push the chairs while trying to sit down. Done repeatedly; it can lead to serious scratches on the floor.

Changing and Repairing of hardwood floor is costly and can take some precious times. It can be a major hindrance to the proper functioning of your office if there is a need to repair or replace the floor. Hardwood is a very hard material though it has a tendency to scratch or chip if you push furniture across the flooring. It needs a lot of care and attention, to maintain its glory. Besides, it is visually pleasing for a modern office to have a modern and classy look with hardwood floorings. Because of that, it is popularly used but also need constant care and attention to maintain its class.

When next you want to rearrange your office desks and chairs, don’t roll them on wheel; lift them up and take to where needed. It will certainly involve more effort and additional manpower to get the task done, but you will thank yourself in many years to come when you use your funds on something more important.

Use area rugs

The most convenient way of protecting your hardwood flooring from scratches is by using area rugs. It prevents the furniture from having direct impact or friction with the floor, protecting the floor from scratches and damages from furniture movement in the area. Rugs are definitely the best cushion that keeps your floor neat and clean by preventing direct friction between office furniture and floor. It is a simple, easy and economical method of keeping your floor safe from office desks, chairs and other kinds of furniture.

Shopping for home office furniture today. Dylan was very helpful and was very understanding of my requirements. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a new office chair for summer. I am a large guy and the chair was rated just above my weight. Sadly the chair began to break and bend. I returned it to Danny's with no receipt but the date and price I paid. Dylan was able to find my order, took the chair for repairs and even gave me a loaner chair. I expected about 1 week turnaround but was surprised it took 3 days. Awesome company and awesome service. You have a customer for life.

The whole process was so neat and tidy without any hiccups and hidden conditions, from the quoting stages to the delivery i was informed of what was happening and the service has been great...
I was extremely sceptical when I initially read Dannys had a 5 star google rating. However after visiting there today and buying a wonderful chair I perhaps think they deserve 6 stars rather than 5.Thanks Marek hope this gets you a pay-rise.

Have just received the delivery of new furniture for a home office. The staff at Danny's Desk were great to deal with, very friendly and helpful and not pushy. Great selection of everything one would need and good prices. Was kept informed regarding the delivery with a call after purchase, a call to confirm the day and time for delivery and a call on the day of prior to actual delivery. Would highly recommend.

I bought one chair more than one year ago, and it’s built with high quality and very comfortable. One thing happened to me recently that again proves this company really cares about it’s customers.I was lodging tax return and couldn’t count my receipt. So I write a letter to a email address listed on their website, asking for help, but not actually expecting a reply as the purchase happened more than one year ago.Amazingly, I got a reply the next morning from one of their staff named Marek (my email is precious evening). I was so grateful with them. I highly recommend this company if you want to buy a chair.
