The 4th of July, Labor Day Weekend will be here in no time, and we will be “smack-dab” in the midst of Summer. If you are thinking about throwing a Summer Barbeque or Party, it is a great time to do it. You may be worried that your house needs cleaned or that guests will mess up your house. Either way, Heaven’s Best can help. Even if you try to keep the party outside, guests will be walking through your home to get to the kitchen or bathrooms, so you can bet dirt will be coming in the house. The good news is there are ways to go about protecting your hardwoods either before or after your Labor Day celebration in Birmingham, AL.
Hosting any kind of event or party means heavy foot traffic, and lots of potential for spills, scuffs, scrapes and even holes! However, if you plan ahead there’s no need to worry. At best you can prevent damage to your floors or at the very least be prepared for any unfortunate spills or mishaps.
If you have hardwood flooring one of the best things you can do, prior to guests is to make sure you have welcome mats or entry way rugs down so your guests can wipe their feet before coming in. Make sure you had slip proof rugs or rug pads, or some sort of slip-proof rug backing to ensure there are no slips or falls. The next best way to be prepared, is to have a mop and cleaner on hand. It’s not unlikely to have a party guest knock over a beverage – especially if children are present. Having a mop, rags and paper towels handy can keep you from going into full blown panic mode when your best friend’s little one spills their tumbler of juice. The best weapon against any stain, whatever the surface, is time. The faster you detect the spill and clean it up, the better.
Another great way to protect your hardwoods is by applying stick-on felt pads to the legs of your furniture. This will guard against scratches and scuffs if the furniture is moved or slid around during the event. It is common practice for guests to pull up a chair, slide around an ottoman, or even move a side table around at their convenience, having protection between the legs of your furniture and your hardwoods will keep you from worrying every time you see a friend slide a chair across the room.
