Here are some things you can use to help protect your floors and carpets:
Furniture sliders – minimize or even eliminate the friction between the object and the floor
Doormats – prevent, as much as possible, dust, mud, water, snow, or other types of debris to be introduced into your home.
Old rugs – keep water or dirt away from the floors below and to provide a protective cushioning barrier against dents and scratches
Floor runners – are made of a special material and have an anti-slip surface on one side to keep them from shifting when in use.
Painter’s Drop cloths – repels the messiest dirt, protects valuable carpet and flooring, durable, long lasting and reusable. You can typically purchase these at local Home Depot & Lowes stores.
