The Best Chair Glides for Hardwood FloorsProtecting your hardwood floors is more than just about the floor. It's about protecting your investment. Whether you spent time and money restoring your wood floors yourself, or hired someone to install brand new floors, it's worth protecting your them as much as you can.
Scratches and scuffs don't often come from walking on hardwood with the wrong shoes, or odd accidents like dropping a tray of drinking glasses. They come from ordinary occurrences like moving dining room chairs back and forth or rearranging furniture.
Certain types of furniture can be rougher on hardwood floors than others. Chairs with metal legs or furniture with hard plastic feet will cause more problems over time.
The best way to protect your hardwood floors is with felt chair glides or felt furniture pads. Durable felt is soft on hardwood floors but strong enough to withstand the weight of the furniture and repeated movement and use. Compare that with metal chair glides which can rust and cause stains, or plastic glides that may break and cause scratches.
