What's the best way to protect hardwood floors from getting scratched from furniture feet?
I've tried putting on padded feet on the furniture, but the sticky portion doesn't hold so they fall off. Is there a good product that won't come off the furniture feet?
High Gloss Finishing Sealer for commonly used for the exterior porches worked for me it works as a High Performance Coating.
So the coating will protect the floor? What's the sealer called? I was thinking of using Gorilla Glue to keep the felt pads on, but I'm hoping there is a long lasting solution.
Yes it is the coating. http://www.dorrancewoodfloors.com/basic … ishes.html

A year ago in May, we removed all the carpeting from the living room, dining room and hall and put down hardwood floors. BTW, We found out that the manufacturer supplied hardwood floor cleaner left it cloudy so I don't recommend it. We use plain water and just damp mop.
It didn't take long to see that sitting on a recliner made the chair move and scratch the floor. We tried furniture mover discs but the rubber part came off on the floor. So I got the idea to put scrap pieces of carpet (from remnants) under the feet of all the furniture (carpet side touching the floor). First I hot glued the carpet to the wood furniture legs (and metal runner of the recliners), but when the weather changed the hot glue stopped sticking. So I now hold the carpet pieces in place with just a few carpet tacks buried deep in the pile. For the sofa and love seat, I bought a runner the exact width of each, which holds them in place when someone sits down. The tables and recliners have the carpet remnants and have been in place about 9 months now. Hope that helps.
I have hardwood floors. I've tried many products. The simplest and cheapest that I have found is self-sticking felt. I cut it to fit the bottoms of furniture. It has worked on large living room chairs to dining room table chairs.
I have bought the sticky pad feet that comes in a package specially for furniture and it always comes off. The felt seems to stay on, but then again we don't move the furniture around too much except for the chairs that we sit in at the table.
I love my hardwood floors, but I've finally resorted to covering at least part of them with area rugs. I put them under any chairs or tables that seem to get moved around the most - dining room table and chairs, my computer desk chair, and the coffee table in the living room.
How do you get your area rugs to stick down? I keep tripping over the edges.
That's what I do too but only under the furniture and tables. My living and walking space is all clear..
swilliams, I wrote how I get the rugs to stay in place. Trim to fit, carpet tack in place. Once the heavy item is on top, carpets stay in place.
Hi Rachael O. My dining table used to sit on an area rug. I wish I could show you a picture the edges just flip up. It's very annoying and it looks stupid. I really don't know how else to describe it. The corners of the rug just curl up.
I trimmed the rug to almost fit, so there is nothing hanging out bottom of each furniture leg. Our furniture is oak, so carpet tacks worked for me. One leg I used 4 panel nails bec when hubby made the coffee table, the wood thickness was different.
In our house, we just put "socks" on the furniture feet. If you don't knit or crochet (or don't know anyone who does), you can just buy some from the store. Here in the Philippines, we can buy them in our Japan based dollar store.
