Bamboo is a long-lasting and durable covering for your floors. Taking steps to keep your bamboo floor free of dust, dirt, and other debris is one way to ensure it looks like new for years to come. Adding protection to your chairs, sofas and other furniture helps prevent scratching the surface of the floor as well.

Protective Pads

Purchase protective pads to place on your chair and table legs and other furniture. The pads constructed of a thick fabric or felt material add good protection. They allow the chair legs to slide across the floor without damaging the bamboo flooring. The protective pads come in screw-in types and some have self-adhesive backing.

Fabric-Backed Caster Cups

Caster cups with fabric backing are another option for chairs with casters. The fabric-backing protects the bamboo floor surface from nicks and scratches that may occur with sliding the casters across the floor area.

Slipstick Feet

Slipstick feet are constructed of plastic. They screw into the base of each chair leg. The plastic surface enables the chair to slide across the floor without damaging the surface. Slipstick feet are sometimes called floor slides or furniture sliders.

Where to Purchase

Shop for chair protective pads and floor protectors at department, furniture, and home supply stores. You can also find many types at discount and hardware stores. They are available in styles that fit any type of chair, whether it's for upholstered living room furniture, dining room chairs, or an occasional chair.

Area Rugs

Area rugs are another way to protect your bamboo floor from dents and scratches from your chairs. The rugs come in a wide array of colours, sizes, styles, and price ranges. Large area rugs are often used under dining room tables and chairs to add colour and softness to the room area as well as protect the floor.
